The air is cooling down but that doesn’t mean that you can’t relax outside while enjoying the crisp autumn air. Just add string lights, plush blankets, fuzzy throw pillows, and lanterns to cozy up your space.

Acorns & Mini Pumpkins

A simple and rustic way to add harvest flair to your home from the front porch to your dining table, mini pumpkins and acorns. Combine acorn string lights with mini pumpkins in a shallow rustic dish for an instant (and seriously easy) centerpiece.

Bust Out The Plaid

Don’t be shy to go all out with the plaid you can find — the more fabrics and tones, the better — for a well-dressed table. Consider layering multiple plaid table runners for a dose of color and stripes. If a more perfect fall pattern exists, we don't know about it. Whether on a throw pillow, blanket, or lampshade, plaid accents instantly make your space feel warm and cozy. If you can't choose one fall element, why not find a way to highlight everything you love about the season? In that case, pair plaid table linens with an artificial apple centerpiece.

Festive Centerpieces

Simple, complex, bright, and neutral – table decorations are so versatile you can create entire tablescape masterpieces with them. Dress up your dinner table with the colors of the season whether burnt orange, rich greens or deep reds, have some fun with it. You can take a rustic approach with natural fall offerings or splurge on freshly cut florals and ornate candles for a sophisticated look. Any reason to get fresh flowers is a good one. Let blooms shine in a gourd-turned-vase — you can even stud it with gold tacks for extra shine.

Corn Husks & Wheat DIY

Celebrate the start of the harvest season by going all-out on corn husks. Dress the door with a garland and wreath, made out of corn husks and multi-colored ears of corn — all faux, of course. Tie colored string around dried wheat bundles and place them inside glass cloches for an elevated centerpiece. Then once winter hits, you can replace the wheat with pine needles, red berries, or pine cones.

After the heat of summer, you'll be oh-so-ready to bring on the chunky blankets. The chunkier the better for blankets this season, mix and match these warm buddies around the house to create inviting spaces for the whole family. The only thing left to do is to get into your favorite flannel PJs for peak coziness.

Front Porch Pumpkin Displays

Put house-guests in the right mindset before they even step foot inside your home with lanterns, pumpkins, and cozy throw blankets tossed on your porch chairs. Make a bigger statement by placing artificial pumpkins in a galvanized bucket, personalized with stencils and paint. Fill out the space with cotton stems and wheat bundles.

Set the Tone with Moody Colors
