When Can I Decorate for Fall?
As the season transitions from summer to autumn, the weather gets cooler, and leaves start to turn. You can wait until fall leaves have completely changed colors around September or October. However, we recommend getting a head start on your fall decorations as early as late August. This way, you get to enjoy your beautiful autumn décor for much longer.
How Do I Decorate for Fall?
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to decorating for fall. You can go all out or even do fall decor on a budget with DIY projects. Your home decor reflects your style and personality, so you should decorate as you see fit. If you don’t know where to start, below are some tips and tricks you can try.
Play With an Autumn-Inspired Color Scheme
If you’re searching for inspiration, you don’t need to look further than the fall season’s striking color palette. Think deep reds, fiery oranges, rich browns, and other warm earth tones. These pair well with softer green hues such as sage and olive or even deeper ones such as emerald and forest green. You can also go for a monochrome palette and add pops of color throughout the space.
Incorporate Fall and Harvest-Themed Accents
Use autumnal accents to add texture and visual interest to your décor. Pumpkins and gourds, for instance, are not only classic harvest decorating items, they also make for inexpensive fall centerpieces on coffee and dining tables. Other fall accents you can use include leaves, corn, flowers, and dried fruits. Another affordable fall décor idea is to mix and match these elements with your existing décor to bring in that fall flair to any room.
Layer Your Lighting with Candles
Fall decorating is all about making your home cozy and comfortable. In autumn when the days are shorter and evenings are longer, using candles for additional ambient lighting is perfect for creating that homey atmosphere. Display them in groups of varying heights on tabletops, shelves, and counters to add warmth and movement to the room.
Fall Decorating Ideas for Every Room
If you wish to decorate different rooms in your home for fall, try some of our ideas below.
Hang a wreath and matching garlands on your front door to make a welcoming first impression. You can create your own inexpensive fall wreaths by going the DIY route or buying a pre-decorated one to save time. Balsam Hill offers a beautiful collection of fall wreaths, garlands, and other greenery to suit your style, space, and budget. After hanging your greenery, flank the door with fall topiaries or potted flower arrangements to complete the look.
The crisp autumn weather calls for thicker, heavier fabrics to keep you warm and cozy. Drape a throw across your favorite easy chair or bundle them together in a wicker basket so anyone can grab one when it’s chilly. Switch out your throw pillow covers from bright summer colors to deeper, richer fall hues of yellows, reds, and browns. On the fireplace mantel, create a cozy vignette with greenery, candles, and lanterns.
Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner or simply want the space to match the season, decorating the dining room for fall is all about highlighting autumn hues and elements. Add a creative twist to your tablescape by using a garland in place of a traditional table runner. Nestle some dried and fresh fall flowers within the branches, along with smaller accents like berries and acorns, then finish it off with a combination of pillar and votive candles.
