Decorating for Fall

by blackspanielgallery

Fall decorations can add a lot of color and make your home more comfortable,

Fall, or autumn, is the season of color. Trees display hues of red and yellow, and the vegetables are equally as spectacularly colored. Look at the gourds, how they come in such decorative colors. So, decorating for fall is easy, and there are two motifs that are possible. One can use a leaf based decoration, such as a wreath of fall colored leaves, best if the leaves are plastic. Gourds, or artificial gourds, make festive table centerpieces.

In the United States we have Thanksgiving in November, but even in places that do not celebrate Thanksgiving the decorations can often be used to make autumnal displays. Yes, those decorations with Pilgrims or a turkey might be too Thanksgiving specific if your area does not participate in Thanksgiving, but these aside there are still many items to choose from.

Fall Wreaths and Related Items

Changing a door wreath to one with a fall design is easy if you use a hook over the door.  Just lift out your summer wreath and replace it with one of fall colors.  There are many to choose from. 

Fall Centerpieces

Fall centerpiece abound, and we have Thanksgiving to thank for that.  Pumpkins, in particular, are not only colorful, but can be large enough to be a focal point of a nice centerpiece.  Just add a few embellishments and your table will make all who visit feel more comfortable. 

When setting out centerpieces do not forget those smaller tables and mantles.  Use size appropriate pieces to add a splash of autumnal color wherever you can. 

Fall Wreaths

Many homes have an inviting wreath on the door, but with door hooks that fit in a very tight space over a door available, it is possible to also add decorative wreaths indoors.  Look for seasonal colors, leaf shapes, and a touch of brown provided by artificial nuts.  Some also include berries of different colors. 


Fall Flags

Flags placed in a garden are popular, and flags for fall can be easily found.  The nice thing here is a flag contains an image, so there is no restriction of the subject matter that is caused by size limitations.  The image might be a single tree, a stand of trees, or colorful food.  It might even be an image of a savory pie. 


There are abundant ways to decorate for fall.  The one thing that makes decorating fun and easy is that no matter what fall appropriate decorations you choose there will certainly be eye appealing color, and lots of it.

By writing on "fall" decorations it was my intent to be inclusive of even those not celebrating Thanksgiving. Wizzley has many readers scattered far and wide, and that makes it a great site.

blackspanielgallery, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
Me too, I admire the white truck even as I really, really appreciate the centerpiece with all the white pumpkins and the welcome flags. I like the way your suggestions fit into Canadian as well as Unitedstatesian Thanksgivings.

I believe there is such a need for happiness that people will decorate more. Last year there were more Christmas decorations than I had ever seen before, and a similar thing happened with Mardi Gras. I can see it extend to Thanksgiving here, and fall where there is no Thanksgiving celebration.
I also find the white truck attractive.

These are really beautiful. I have got an Autumn Door wreath this year. It is lovely and brings a smile when I see it . I think we are all in need of some cheer just now !
I particularly like the Fall flags and white truck planter.
