Welcome the fall with a burst of blooming color and breathe life into your home with the help of flowers and foliage accents. These natural fall décor pieces will make scenes around the home more vivid and heartwarming by adding the sights and scents of the season. Find out how you can decorate your space with fresh blooms and prepare your home for the coming season.
The Front Porch
Make a good first impression on your guests by decorating your front porch with flowers placed in a tin watering can and tin pails. These give the flowers and your other fall décor a rustic touch and a welcome change from conventional vases and containers. You can complete a countryside look by adding antique wooden furniture and a few floral patterns. If you want the flowers to be visible indoors and out, place them on window boxes on your front porch and around your home.
The Living Room
Use flowers to provide colors in your living room by placing a large or medium-sized bouquet on the coffee table and a few smaller bunches around the room. Try using clear vases or containers to help these blooms blend in more in your decorating theme. Make sure to add some water to prolong the life of the flowers and keep them looking fresh throughout the season.
The Dining Room
Over-sized floral arrangements may look impressive, but in practice, they only serve to block dinner guests’ view and make it harder to converse with each other. You can create an equally impressive fall tablescape with smaller bouquets and a few tea lights. Use small jars as candle holders and sprinkle some fall leaves in floral arrangements to give your tablescape a seasonal flavor. Adding some twigs and branches will also add an earthy and festive appeal to your decorating theme.
Autumn provides a myriad of decorating options through a natural medley of colors that change as the season progresses. Taking advantage of the season’s natural gifts will help you in redecorating your home—especially if you’re looking for some fresh ideas.
