Fall Decorating Ideas

fall decorating ideas

It is undeniable that fall leaves are one of nature’s showstoppers and when the time comes each year to start decorating for autumn, we can’t wait to jump right in.

We have created a handful of gorgeous fall looks in the most trendy autumn colors of the season, from amazing untraditional color schemes to color palettes that keep the fall tradition alive!

Pink & Burgundy 


When you are planning your fall decor, you don’t typically think “pink” but there is no denying that this dusty pink chrysanthemum compliments these burgundy peonies and gold beaded acorns perfectly.


When you create a custom garland for the base of your fall tablescape, there are so many ways to dress it up.


To do this, start with a pre-made eucalyptus garland and two large bundles of artificial greenery.  We chose large eucalyptus leaves and lamb’s ear.  Unbundle the leaves and begin to wind them into the garland.  For a temporary centerpiece, simply weave the stems together, tucking larger stems under the garland to hide them.


For a more permanent table garland, attach the leaf stem to the garland with floral tape, like this floral table runner.  Now that your base of greenery is complete, add your favorite seasonal flowers to beautify the centerpiece!

Traditional Fall 


Traditional fall decorating of course starts with… you guessed it!  A pumpkin! This fall color palette has us dreaming of crisp autumn days filled with leaf piles and apple cider.  The base of the tablescape is a modern gold striped table runner, complimented by gold chargers and flatware.


A garland of fig leaves is adorned with fall berries.  Pumpkins of multiple colors and sizes are the focal point of the centerpiece.


Finish your fall table with romantic lighting.  We chose emerald green taper candle holders for another pop of beautiful autumn color.


Orange & Red


Another way to incorporate pumpkins in your fall decor is with these adorable velvet cuties! Keeping the traditional fall color scheme, this arrangement has a trendy twist with the addition of velvet and gold.


Create this fall table runner by combining multiple pre-made garlands together.


Twist the velvet pumpkin garland and the bittersweet berry garland together and add sprays of fall leaves to create a lush runner full of color and texture.


Natural & Navy


Keep your table classically beautiful with natural wood and preserved florals.  With the added touch of navy accents, these decorations create a romantic atmosphere for your fall dinner parties.


Natural wheat bundles are an organic way to dress up your buffet, or use a few stalks as accents on your place settings.  A flowing organza table runner is the perfect finishing touch.


Look forward to fall gatherings with these fall decorating ideas!
