Decorate Your Home For Fall From The Outside In

If you have been to the grocery store lately, you know it is exploding with pumpkin flavored everything. If you love the fall season and want to start decorating your home for autumn, you are not alone. Are you looking for decorating inspiration and great ways to reflect the colorful season outside your home and in? If so, I have some fall decorating ideas and tips to share.

The easiest way to start is with some pumpkins. Pumpkins come in all shapes, sizes and colors, use a variety around your doors, steps and walkways. Small hay bales make a great prop or platform to showcase them on or around.


Add in potted mums in shades of purple, orange, yellow and red. The Home Depot carries a nice variety of mums in various sizes and colors.


I always like to add in different or unexpected accents and Pottery Barn has Live Topiary Cats, Bats and Spiders that will add that seasonal touch to your patio or garden. Made of galvanized wire, tree moss and English Ivy these living decorations last season after season.


Dress your door with the Harvest Pumpkin Wreath & Garland. It will welcome your guests  with the warmth of faux pumpkins, gourds, berries and realistic oak leaves.


As guests make their way inside, the warm colors and textures of the season will greet them. The Raw Edge Wood Bowl from Target’s Harvest Collection is perfect to place on a coffee or hall table and looks great filled with the Pine Cone and Felt Acorn Fill.


  Keeping with that theme, the Pine Cone and Felt Acorn Wreath looks amazing hung over the mantle.


Decorate the mantel with gorgeous brass and leather lanterns, fabric and rope pumpkins and birds in a variety of shades, patterns and textures and small berry arrangements that add nice pops of color.


Whimsical fabric woodland animals along with seasonal throw pillows will liven up sofas and chairs.


The beautiful leather accented basket will add a nice touch to your hearth and can be used to hold cozy throws like the Wooded River, Marquise IV from Goedekers featuring a beautiful southwestern sunrise.



Looking for something different to decorate your walls? If you are, check out the Metal Spoon, Fork and Knife Set.  This unique set will look great on a wall in your kitchen or dining room and is done in warm fall colors.



These ideas should get you off to a great start in your quest to create a warm and inviting home from the outside in for your family and friends.
