5 Thoughts on Fall Decorating
Fall is one of the best times to decorate. There is just so much that you can do. Sure, spring is beautiful, but there are some of us that just have a sweet spot for fall.
And this is certainly understandable. Fall is just such a beautiful time. Whereas spring is full of greens and pastels and colors, fall brings solid earthy, colors like reds, yellows, and oranges.
If you are trying to decorate for fall consider these tips:
Remember the standby items
One of the most important things with fall decorating is to start with a good foundation and that foundation generally is best done with the standby items like mums/asters, kale/ornamental cabbage, and pumpkins. Get even 2 of these items and you are on the right track.
Don’t forget about gourds
Gourds are something that are often underated. There are just so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Consider using several different types to add in to your displays or even to make an entire display.
Straw Bales make a good base for displays
Straw Bales say fall. Consider using some in your display to add to the fall look. You can get either small bales or full size.
Corn shocks can be a nice touch
Corn shocks are a nice touch in a corner or on posts. Consider putting them on porch posts or on your lampost.
Consider using some non-traditional colors
Although when we think of fall the first thing that we often think of is reds, oranges, and yellows, there is a place for other colors. Instead of using only orange pumkins, consider using white pumpkins, gray blue hubbard squash, or long, skinny neck pumkins.
