Embrace the beauty of fall by bringing beauty into your home. We have some great ideas to help you make your home fall gorgeous. There are several key places in your home that you will want to decorate, especially before hosting the first get-together of the season.
The Front Porch
Bringing a splash of fall color to your front porch gives curb appeal and makes guests feel like they are stepping into a special season. Dried corn stalks look great propped up on the porch when you tie them together with a piece of bright orange burlap. Stick an autumn scarecrow in with your corn to add a touch of fall whimsy to the decoration. Set several pumpkins of different colors and sizes on your porch in a corner to speak of the bounty of the season.
A pretty fall welcome mat goes a long way to tying this look together, but one of the biggest impacts will be the wreath on your door. There are a number of great wreath options available nowadays. Go with a traditional flower wreath featuring mums and sunflowers, go all out fall with colored leaves and Indian corn, or go modern with burlap and a monogram letter. Embrace your style and make your front porch a fall haven for arriving guests.
The Kitchen and Dining Room
You cannot have guests over without feeding them so it is important to make your kitchen and dining room a beautiful fall retreat. One great way to bring fall colors into your kitchen is through investing in some fall linens. Get a set of cute fall dish towels, a fun fall apron, and some orange dish cloths. The space above your cabinets (if you have it) is a great place for seasonal displays. Get some fall leaf garlands and nestle pumpkins and fall candles in it to make a beautiful autumn display.
Dress your table for the season with a breathtaking fall center piece. Fill a large vase with acorns, miniature pumpkins and fall leaves for an arrangement that won’t need watering and will last most of the season. Fall colored place mats and maple leaf napkin rings will make your table fall fare ready without requiring you to buy new dishes for the season.
The bathroom can often be overlooked when it comes to decorating for the season, but what a shame this is. Most guests will need to use the facilities at some point during your fall party, why not take the festivities there with them. Simple touches like pumpkin spice hand soap in a cute fall dispenser and a fall scented candle burning will make the restroom smell of fall. Get a cute fall door hanger to hang on the outside of the bathroom door to make directing guests easy ( it is the door with the scarecrow on it…). Finally something as simple as buying a box of tissues in a fall box or getting a fall cover for your tissues can add a little splash of fall color to your bathroom without clashing with the décor you have already invested in.
When it comes to decorating for the season these three areas of the home are critical for guests. Make sure you spread the beauty of fall to your front porch, kitchen, and bathroom before you host your next fall gathering!
