Last week the temperatures dropped to the 80’s here in Atlanta, the morning air began to show signs of crispness and all I could think about was decorating for fall. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the warm colors that represent fall; I love the texture of fall leaves and pinecones; and I really love sunflowers–my favorite fall flower.
So, in honor of the approaching season, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite fall decorating ideas with you.
Pumpkins and gourds are one of my favorite fall decorating elements. I love mixing oranges and yellows together, and throwing in a white pumpkin or two for a pop. Aren’t white pumpkins one of natures most beautiful things?
If you want to decorate in a specific color scheme, you can always spray paint your pumpkins any color you want.
I love creating pumpkin topiaries at my front door. Just remove the plants from your planters and stack pumpkins (real or faux) to create a topiary. For the early part of the fall, use plain pumpkins and then switch them out for something a bit more whimsical for Halloween.
Your front door is a great place to do some creative fall decorating. I typically place a fall wreath on my door, but just might try this look, this year. This arrangement uses tin cans that have been dressed up with ribbons, and then filled with fresh flowers. Simple and elegant.
Here’s a really beautiful centerpiece idea. To create these flower pumpkins, simply hot glue flower heads over the entire surface of a small pumpkin. How adorable.
