Easy and Creative Fall Decor Ideas

One of the most spectacular gifts God has given us through nature is the changing of the seasons.  God’s handiwork is in full swing in the mountains here in Colorado and the splendor of the leaves changing is absolutely breathtaking!  Now that fall is officially here, I am spreading more fall decor throughout our house.  Today, I am sharing some easy and creative fall decor ideas to help add touches of fall to your home decor.

Before

This is how my coffee tables were decorated prior to starting this project.  I keep the decor on my coffee tables very simple so it is easy for me to change things up as the season’s change.  The branches in the cylinder vase came straight from my yard and provide a perfect amount of drama for the area.

Since my coffee tables are metal and glass, I felt it was important to add some softness to the tables.  Especially since it is fall, adding some coziness should be priority one!

Begin with adding texture

There are so many things you could use for this…a throw blanket, a tablecloth or a piece of fabric with texture.  For this project, I actually found this fantastic faux fur bath mat at Marshall’s on clearance for only $12!!  When I found it, I instantly thought it would serve as a perfect base for my plans for the coffee tables.

Next, I put the branches back on the table on top of the fur piece.  Voila…tons of texture!

Add in a variety of pumpkins

Here, you should just go for it!  Variety is key.  Velvet pumpkins, faux pumpkins, real pumpkins, painted pumpkins…whatever your heart desires.  For my fall decor this year, I am working with a neutral palette so that is what guided my choices.  However, this look will work with any colors you prefer for fall.

You could absolutely stop here if you want a cleaner, simple look.  However, fall is all about what is happening outside so I like bringing the outside in.

Incorporate natural elements from outdoors

Having a large yard with multiple species of evergreen and deciduous trees and plants, I have a plethora of options.  If that is not your case, you could easily use natural greenery you can buy from your local grocery store or faux greenery or branches bought from any hobby store.  I chose these chokecherry branches because of their color but also because they will dry well and last a long time.

To feature more natural elements on my coffee tables, I simply brought in some pine cones from my front yard.  We have a constant supply!

Easy and Creative Fall Decor Ideas – Finishing Touches

For me, the finishing touches are so important.  Adding candlelight is a must-do to help create a cozy, fall vignette.  It provides warmth and ambiance that cannot be matched.

    Holliday — Just love all of our great décor ideas and classic style! Love your blog too — one of my very favorites. Out of curiosity, just wondering where you found (or created?) the gold tray shown in your vignette? Lovely. The style looks familiar to me. Your neighbor to the south — new mexico.

      Oh my, Penny! You are so sweet! I bought the gold tray at TJ Maxx Homegoods about a year ago. I always find such great things there. I love New Mexico…especially Santa Fe!! Thank you so much for stopping by and your kinds words. You made my day!! XO

    Holliday – Thanks for compliment. That tray is just killer! will look around for something similar. not beyond painting one up if it fits the bill except for color! I live south of santa fe — between abq and santa fe in placitas, NM. very magical here.

    Love the silver tones for your fall table.

      Thank you Maria! “Neutrals” certainly cover a lot of tones. Mixing them all up is part of the fun! Have a great day. XO

    Wow you really know how to style that coffee table. I would not have thought of half of the things you added. It looks sophisticated but warm, just perfect for fall. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Holliday Johnson | 26th Sep 18

      Wow. Thank you, Mary, for your kind comments!! The bath mat is the best part!! Who would have thought it could be so impactful?! I am so appreciative that you stopped by and liked it! xo

    Holly… love those beautiful burgundy branches, and the pillar candle holder are so lovely! Pinned on my Fall board!

    • Holliday Johnson | 26th Sep 18

      Thank you, friend! The chokecherry branches are not looking as happy as I had hoped they would. They are missing not being back on their tree, I think. 🙁
