Four Fun Ideas for How to Decorate for Fall

August 30, 2022

Using my four fun ideas for how to decorate for fall can make your seasonal home feel extra cozy and welcoming!

Are you ready??!!

It is officially football season, back to school has happened, and now it is time to decorate your home for fall!! YAAAASSS!!

I have spent the last week opening up dusty bins in my garage with last year’s fall decor to see what I still love and also really don’t love.

It has been so fun being creative and finding new ways to use the same decor from years past. As well as adding in some new items.

I currently have a bag or two of old fall stems and faux pumpkins in my garage that are just not floating my boat anymore so I plan on giving them to Goodwill.

Or my daughters – guess it depends on who takes them first ;0!

I am also joining an amazingly talented group of SEVENTEEN bloggers to share absolutely anything and everything you can think of for early fall inspiration with you.

I am telling you – you do not want to miss all this great inspo! And if you are coming here from my beautiful friend Jen at Midwest Life and Style – hi!! Thank you for coming over to my little slice of the world wide web ;).

Jen and I have been blogging buddies since I started my blog (well technically way before that because of Instagram). I cannot tell you how much I love all of her decor ideas and delicious recipes.

So if you are here from her blog – I sure hope you enjoy what you find here with me too which obviously includes home decor!

But I also throw travel guides, planning tips, and life experiences on this website because well hey – I spend a lot of time thinking about all those things and what better person to share my efforts with than YOU!!

Now let’s get started on decorating our houses for fall – shall we??

In a rush?

Gather Real Leaves and Make a Leaf Bouquet

When my oldest daughter was a freshman in college in Oregon, we visited her in the fall for parent’s weekend. Since San Diego does not experience a typical fall, we were so excited to have this opportunity to see fall foliage while my daughter attended college.

My youngest daughter was twelve years old at the time and couldn’t believe how big some of the leaves were on a hike we went on as a family.

So she started collecting the humongous leaves and making a “leaf bouquet”. She loved her bouquet so much, she very carefully carried it ON THE AIRPLANE back to San Diego!!

The above “bouquet” is that same leaf collection she gathered – NINE YEARS LATER!!

All this to say – fall decor can be as simple as you make of it. Including collecting leaves or sticks on a hike :).

And yes, I store that above bouquet in a very protected space every year after the season is over ;).

Oh – and my youngest is now a senior at University of Oregon so how fun is it that we have gotten an entire decade of reasons to visit a state that has incredible fall foliage?!

Put Faux Apples and Pumpkins in Bowls

The paper mache apples above are probably one of my most favorite fall decor items :).

I literally have them EVERYWHERE: my front porch, my media center, my kitchen table – you get the drift :).

They are currently on sale too which makes them even more appealing. And the quality is so good, I imagine these apples will be part of my fall decor as long as those Oregon leaves have been.

Or maybe even longer ;).

Another favorite faux apple I use in multiple places throughout my house are the above gold apples.

They honestly are so pretty and I love the way they look in white bowls around my house ;).

Display A Festive Fall Cookbook on the Kitchen Counter

Almost twenty years ago, I fell in love with the author/artist Susan Branch.

I religiously bought her wall calendar and day planners year after year.

And my mom bought me her Christmas cookbook when I was a newlywed :).

Shortly after that I found her Autumn cookbook and have loved bringing it out every year since!

Use Metal Trays

Finding stunning metal trays this time of year is quite easy to do.

I have had all of mine for a few years now and love bringing them out for fall and Christmas seasons.

Just remember the rule of threes for all your decor on your trays which means – group things in sets of three making sure to vary the shapes and heights of your items.
