Ahh… the fresh crispness of fall is back in the air! It’s time to enjoy pumpkin spice lattes and much deserved afternoon naps. If you’re feeling festive here are five easy decor tips to wow your guests and really bring fall into your home.
Dress Your Doorway
What better way to welcome fall then at your front door. Dressing up your entryway is an easy way to make the exterior of your home standout for fall. Pick up a festive wreath for the door or make one yourself using pinecones and other fall foliage.
You can decorate around your door with pumpkins and small gourds to add more color. Add some solar lights surrounding your walkway or mix in candles with your pumpkins to accentuate your new front door design.
The slower pace of Autumn allows us to spend more quality time with family and friends. What better way to create memories and share stories then around a crackling fire. If you lack seating, thick cut logs and hay bales can add a rustic touch. Accessorize your outdoor atmosphere with hot apple cider, s’mores and blankets for your guests.

Splash the colors of fall onto your walls using framed art prints. Go for images with festive fall shades such as golds, reds and greens. Seasonal portraits with nature and wildlife such as deer, bears or birch trees are always trendy even through the winter months. To really go the extra mile swap out the smaller decor pieces on your shelves for new fall ornaments.
