Leaves are falling in the City of Columbia and it’s finally the autumn season. Welcome the festivities by revamping your home with these decorative tips.
1. Pumpkins & Co.
Fall isn’t fall without pumpkins. Set out an array of creatively decorated pumpkins, squash, and other foods in the cucurbitaceae family (try pronouncing that word five times). In addition to those creative carvings your kids make, set the scene with different types of squash or a few white pumpkins.
2. Create an Autumn Aroma
Candles are one of the best tools to create a seasonal ambiance in your home. Scents of freshly fallen leaves or warm pumpkin spice lattes can bring a cheap, simple and cozy element to any room of the house.
3. Leaves, Leaves, Leaves
Though actual leaves might crumble, stock up on “realistic” fake leaves from your local craft store. Boarder your windows with a stylish string of leaves. Welcome in the new season with a leaf-wreath for your front door. For an extra fall touch, fill a decorative vase with a bouquet of leaves and use it as a centerpiece.
4. Switch up the Pillows
Something as simple as changing up the pillows on your couch can bring a festive mood to the room. If the colors don’t clash, toss a few autumn-toned pillows on your furniture and enjoy this comfy decor.
5. Painted Mason Jars
Painted mason jars can be great for storing kitchen utensils, make-up brushes and stray pencils or for holding miniature candles. If you’re looking to accent a room in your home with fall colors, paint or purchase orange, yellow, and red colored mason jars to set on counters and shelves. Not only are these decorative but they come in handy!
6. Kids Favorite: Framed Leaves
During the fall season, do your kids keep trying to bring leaves inside the house because they look “cool”? Save their favorite leaves and create a framed collage at the end of the season. This is a fun decoration to hang in their room for the rest of the year. Click HERE for creative ways to display a leaf collection.
