Fall Decorating: A Few Ideas

As I work on some fall décor ideas for this fall I thought I would show you a few ideas from last year. I imagine some of you are thinking about fall decorating ideas for your own home. :-)

I used a couple of pots of faux boxwood (Home Goods) with my pumpkin cookie jar. I stored fall treats and later Halloween candy in here. :-)

I added a couple of battery operated white ceramic pumpkins to the table vignette. I had so much fun using white last year. 

I have several faux sunflowers that I bring out every year. I poke them into a container. Instant fall with these!

For the parlor, I added a pumpkin colored throw, and tiny felt pumpkins in my lanterns. Simple and quick decorating!

Here is a close up of my pumpkins-in-a-lantern. This was a really popular idea last year.

This is a chair vignette. I put some pumpkins in an extra chair at the entry...for color. Visitors could see this when I opened the door.

This picture shows you that you can add mini pumpkins anywhere for a touch of fall. If you don't want to go all out just add a few little pumpkins for a touch of fall color. 

This was probably the most popular fall post from last year. I took a Mary and Martha three tiered tray/basket and filled it with lots of mini fall bits and pieces. It makes a nice statement in my kitchen. 

You can create a tiered tray of your own with pedestal cake plates, or other stacking items. Have fun with it! Gather some bags of pine cones, mini pumpkins, and filler. 

I used the Waterlogue App to make a water color of a simple pumpkin pic. 

Here are just a few ideas I did last year. I hope they inspire you to make some fall vignettes in your home.
