September marks a turning point in the year. The summer comes to an end, the kids go back to school, and we start to feel a chill in the air. This is the perfect time to start thinking about transforming your home with touches of the season. Whether you’re a “fall fanatic” or you prefer a more understated look, we’ve found some easy and fun fall decorating ideas that will add a cozy and welcoming touch to your home.
Since the kitchen is considered the “heart of the home,” we decided to feature this room as the perfect place to start. Here are six decorating ideas that will serve as festive reminders of what’s to come:
1) Tabletop Pumpkin Topiary
This elegant pumpkin topiary adds a surprising pop of fall as it features white pumpkins, artichoke hearts and fresh herbs. Even more surprising is how easy it is to make. Using three graduated sized bowls, you can unleash your creativity by filling them with any combination of fall foliage, pumpkins or gourds.
2) Pumpkin Servers
You’ll be the talk of the town with this clever serving idea. Simply remove the stems from attractively-shaped pumpkins and place serving plates on top to create a unique and fun buffet setting.
3) Simple Table Settings
Setting a beautiful fall table has never been easier. Simply gather your favorite fall foliage to design a centerpiece that you can truly call your own. Add a pop of color to the place settings by using a fall-colored napkin. And, also add some silk leaves and acorns to this look. Your guests will love the simple elegance and the extra effort you took to make them feel special.
4) All Decked Out
For fall fanatics, this festive display is a great example of how to showcase your true colors. This kitchen boasts autumn in all its splendor – with a decked-out hutch, a foliage-draped ceiling fixture, a beautiful table scape, and even mini pumpkins adorning simple white china. A fall wreath on the door rounds out the look to bring the room together. Choose one or all of the fall decorating ideas in this kitchen to transform the space into cozy, autumn retreat.
5) Countertop Complements
This festive countertop display is an easy way to show your fall spirit and add a hint of the season to your kitchen. Simply dress up a three-tiered stand with all of your fall favorites to create a look that will last all season long.
6) Top it Off
Decorating the top of your cabinets is a great way to add another layer of fun and whimsy to your kitchen. Here, a beautifully weaved basket is filled with seasonal pumpkins and gourds, and is decorated with cascading touches of greenery to create a charming fall display. Adding a fun plaque is an easy way to welcome the season and give you and your guests something to look up to.
