5 SIMPLE WAYS TO DECORATE FOR FALL
Im all about simplicity during the holidays y'all. I also really don't like spending much money on holiday decor since the trends come in and out and then I'm stuck with decor I won't use again! Here are a few tips on a simple , affordable way to decorate for Fall! Comment below if you have any tips to add!
1. FOCUS YOUR DECORATING EFFORTS ON THE MAIN LIVING SPACES IN YOUR HOME.
When I don’t have time for big changes in our home, I concentrate on decorating a few main spaces: the fireplace mantle, front door entrance , the living room , and the kitchen. Since these are the places we spend the most time, and the places guests will see when they visit, they will have the biggest impact to make our home feel like fall.
2. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE PUMPKIN.
Fall is all about pumpkins so grab a few decorative ones and sprinkle them around your home. I love the white pumpkins because they will fit in with any color scheme. The small pumpkins can easily be added all over the house too. Place them around a bookcase, on a shelf, or even on a tray on your coffee table.
I sprinkled a few pumpkins on our mantle, added a couple on the coffee table in our living room , and still have a few more to play with.
3. USE PRINTABLES FOR INSTANT FALL DECOR or a letter board for cute sayings .
Printables are my favorite way to add a touch of the season without any work. I have a few rustic frames that I use all the time, I just change out the printable to match the new decor. And printables can be used anywhere you have artwork. In a frame on the mantle, in a gallery wall or even on a shelf. Letter boards are popular right now and man they are just so fun! I love changing out the sayings , and it's a great job to give your kids!
4. DECORATE WITH FALL FRUITS.
Decorating for fall can be as easy as adding a bowl of apples and pears to a beautiful bowl or tray along with som pretty greenery. I love to stay as simple as possible and this is my favorite way to make a centerpiece . A bonus is the kids can easily enjoy a healthy snack from your decor ! This one with the apples was so simple and just what I wanted . The greenery was $3.00 from target and I will be able to use it all holiday season! I love using squash , artichokes and pumpkins too.
5. TOSS IN A COUPLE PILLOWS.
Throw pillows are the easiest way to add some seasonal decor to your home. Toss them on every sofa, bench, or even make floor pillows that can just be tossed on the floor. Pillow covers are super easy to make, or you can buy inexpensive ones for the perfect budget friendly fall decor.
Last but not least , throw a few pumpkins and fall flowers around your front door and you're done!
