Fall Home Decorating Tips

Fall home decor on a front porch.

It’s that time of the year! As we welcome the changing autumn leaves, the traditional apple picking, and festive pumpkin patch outings, it’s also time to get your house fall decor ready. Use these fall home decorating tips to liven up your home inside and out!

Outdoor Decor Ideas

Give your friends and family a warm fall welcome with a decorated front entryway. Go bold with some festive warm colors, or choose a soft neutral palette. 

  • Fall Flowers

The front porch offers countless opportunities for a warm welcome. Pick up some fall flowers from your local Hobby Lobby, or use flowers from your very own yard. Choose colors that complement each other and bring a festive seasonal vibe to your entryway. Sunflowers offer a great pop of color and are perfect for any fall arrangement. Get creative by using metal tins, outdoor vases, or flower pots to decorate your front porch. 

  • Gourds & Pumpkins

Time to head to the pumpkin patch to grab some fall decor! Choose pumpkins of varied sizes to create a dynamic look. Small sizes are perfect to use throughout the home, and the bigger ones can make quite a statement on the front porch.

  • Decorative Wreaths

Wreaths are an easy way to add a seasonal touch to any window or front door. If you are inclined to be crafty, you can make your own DIY fall wreath by using branches and fall leaves or swing into your local store to pick one that suits your home decor best. 

Indoor Decor Ideas

  • Fireplace

A mantle above the fireplace is a perfect place to jazz up your house with some fall home decor. Whether you are going for a playful Halloween theme or a subtle rustic look, the fireplace is a beautiful centerpiece that your friends and family can gather around. Hang a decorative autumn wreath above and sprinkle your best fall foliage decor across the mantle.  

  • The Little Things – Fall Decor 

Fill your home with the nostalgic smells of fall by including the familiar scents of spiced apples, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and apple cider-themed candles. 

Do you have some festive turkey-themed dinnerware in storage? Dust it off and put it to good use to spruce up your dining table. Mix and match textures and warm colors to give your guests a joyful night around the dining table. 

  • Guest Bedroom

Have family or friends visiting from out of town? Add a warm fall touch in the guest bedroom by putting fall flowers in a vase or an inviting plaid blanket on the bed. Your guests will feel right at home in their cozy bedroom! 

DIY Decor

Look no further than your backyard for some decor inspiration! Head outside to gather some sticks and pinecones to use in a decorative vase or bowl around the house. Incorporating natural textures is a wonderful way to liven up your home!

Ready for a night of family fun? Get the whole family involved for an entertaining night of painting pumpkins. Pick colors that match your decor and come up with fun designs for the kids to paint.
