Autumn is upon us and Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I am ready with all kind of fall decor throughout my home. I have been crafting and displaying faux fall leaves and pumpkins, both artificial and fresh.

Front Porch Fall Decor:
Decorating outdoors for Fall means decorating my front porch. I switch out my pillow covers with seasonal throw pillows and add a couple of fall colored cozy throws in addition. It is a given that geraniums and coleus will be replaced with chrysanthemums. Pumpkins and corn husks will join in to celebrate the fall season.
If you have beautiful Fall leaves where you are (or even if you only have brown ones like I do), you might want to try this nearly free Fall garland! This seasonal garland is an inexpensive decoration that is really easy, and a great way to get the entire family involved!
Classic orange pumpkins and heirloom varieties along with colorful mums decorate my front steps. Such an easy way to celebrate the changing season.
Decorating indoors for Fall:
Most of my decorating inside for Fall is focused on my fireplace and mantel. Last year I went with all white pumpkins and magnolia garlands. I have put a piece on my mantel to try it out, but I am not sure that I will be satisfied with that. I am sure I will be doing something on a larger scale like this
I always like to have a little bit of seasonal decoration in the kitchen and a tiered tray is a great way to keep it corralled and under control. I did find this cute burlap apple bag and added little artificial pumpkins and apples so it looks like they are tumbling out of it to my island. The vibrant fall color on my tiered tray is perfect fall decor!
Fall brings families together and generally brings us indoors. Of course the BIG tablescape is the Thanksgiving table. Between now and Thanksgiving there will be plenty of meals shared family and friends. This casual fall tablescape was styled with tabletop items picked up from Target and the Dollar Tree. Don’t think you have to spend a fortune to set a pretty table for Fall! The real pumpkins are the perfect touch on a cheese board for a simple centerpiece.
A perfect way to decorate your dining room table for the season is with natural materials including real leaves foraged from my magnolia trees and fresh flowers arranged in tall urns. I just love the natural beauty of these arrangements in addition to the pheasant feathers.
When Thanksgiving rolls around and you want to set a special table, you can go traditional, or you can do something different like this Thanksgiving tablescape in neutral colors. I will most likely be going with something traditional colors this year. Whatever it is, my dining table will receive fun fall accents to put diners into a fall mood!
Fall Crafts for Your Home:
A brand new craft for me this year is this cute as can be yarn wrapped pumpkins. You can get yourself some dollar store pumpkins and dollar store yarn and be making these cuties in no time at all. You can find all of the instructions at my DIY Yarn Pumpkins post. I just love how they look in a wicker basket. It makes me want to curl up under some cozy blankets and relax! The fuzzy textures and different colors of the yarn on these pumpkins is just so fun!
When I am ready to take on my outdoor decorating I don’t know what I am going to do this year. I love a lush look like this, but I try and mix it up with something different every year.
This fall wreath hung on my door last year, but this year, I think I will display it above the mantel in the living room.
This was front door decor last year, but now it decks my mantel. All of the fall elements included in this swag are just the best thing! I have already gotten this out and placed it on my mantel this year. I know it is a good start, but I think I need to add some more to it. I have the wreath and think it will look lovely hung above the mantel, too! You can learn how to make this piece that can work as a piece for over your door, or a mantelpiece, on a sideboard, or even over the top of your kitchen cabinets. I give you a full tutorial at Decorate Your Front Door for Fall.
If you aren’t quite ready…
If you aren’t quite ready for Fall leaves and reds and oranges, you may just want to bring out some white pumpkins which give a little “hint” that Fall is just around the corner. Mini pumpkins are such an easy way to begin fall decorating.
Whatever you do for fall decorations, make sure you give it your personal touch!
