There is nothing like the months of fall. Pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, the leaves changing colors; theres just so much to look forward too. We all know that when the shades of orange, brown and red come out that it’s time for fall.
One of the best parts is decorating your home for fall. There are so many ways to get your home ready for autumn. From wreaths, pumpkins and gourds, theres so many possibilities. It’s that time of year where family parties are no longer backyard BBQ’s so you want the inside of your home to be just as welcoming as the outside.
So grab your apple cider and take a trip to Target. Make your home cozy and fall appropriate with these decor ideas.
Decorating the outside of your home is just as important as the inside. Mums become abundant in the fall will make your front porch welcome guests with open arms. Decorate the outside steps with pumpkins and gourds. Add in a few mums and you’ll be good to go. Another cute idea is having a long vertical sign that reads, “Welcome” or “Harvest.” These signs scream fall.
Another cute idea is to get some lanterns to light the walkway or front porch. Not only do they give off a rustic vibe but they are also practical. It’ll make it much easier to see when it gets dark out.
Adding flowers to your home just makes it seem cozier. You can either by fresh ones each week or stop by a craft store and make your own arrangement. Sunflowers look beautiful on the table during the fall. Add in some red, brown and orange flowers and you are good to go. If you want to get extra festive, crave out a pumpkin and use that as the vase for the flowers.
Fall is all about the warm color scheme. Start to incorporate those appropriate shades throughout your living room. Get a couple of throw pillows from Home Goods and a fuzzy blanket or two. Adding some extra cozy decor to the living room will make it feel more inviting to not only you but also guests. Also, replace your summer hand towels in the kitchen with pumpkin decorated ones. Another good way to warm up the kitchen is to add copper and gold decor.
Candles and potpourri. Start to gather your favorite fall scents. This can be decor but it’ll make your home smell fall appropriate too. Candles make a wonderful addition to counter tops, table scapes and more. Potpourri you can make yourself or buy a pre-made package. Arrange it on a plate in the middle of your table. Pinecones will definitely make the area smell nice and give off a rustic farmhouse vibe.
For some reason, rocking chairs scream fall. Add one or two to your front or back porch. You’ll have a place to drink your coffee in the morning and read a good book in the afternoon. Add a plaid blanket to it for those chilly nights when you’re outside relaxing. Anything plaid just adds to the fall vibe.
Turn the back patio into the hangout spot. If the climate allows, set up an outdoor fire place. Surround it with comfy chairs that have cute outdoor throw pillows. Add a basket on the side thats filled with blankets incase the nights get chilly. Having a set-up patio will make it more comfortable for guests. It’s a good place to hangout and chat into the night.
