When the seasons change, so does my home decor. Replacing my Summer-inspired decorations with Fall’s mementos immediately changes the mood in my home. As soon as I put the pumpkins out, the air suddenly feels crisper and the leaves more yellow and crunchy. The right fall decor is the holiday’s secret ingredient! This season, I’m setting up a rustic style fall pumpkin tablescape and some illuminating pumpkin decorations – two easy Fall decoration ideas you can use to get your home in the holiday spirit!
Dinner table decorations are my favorite! I love adding pops of color or seasonal decorations to the place where everyone gathers together to share a meal. Picture this: enjoying pumpkin soup and pumpkin bread, while looking at your gorgeous decorative pumpkin tablescape. Too much? .. No way. It’s the holidays!
For this Fall-inspired pumpkin tablescape I started with a white table cloth, then laid a gray linen napkin in the middle and scrunched up the napkin edges for a more rustic feel. I then placed a large light pink pumpkin in the middle of the crinkled napkin and placed smaller, mini pumpkins of varying shapes around. I picked up all of the tablescape pumpkins at my local grocery store (yes, even the big pink one!). The finishing touches include some dried roses in a jar and candles. I really love the look of the dry roses! They dry so beautifully and remind me of Fall leaves.
Illuminating Mini Pumpkins
This simple Fall decoration is so unbelievably easy. I found this cute wood bucket at Target and I liked its rustic apple picking feel. I lined the bottom of the bucket with a few white linen napkins and added a cordless string of white lights, covering the battery pack under the linen napkin. I then placed the mini-pumpkins into the bucket, placing the larger pumpkins on the bottom and the smaller ones on top. This mini pumpkin decoration is so simple and rustic, just switch on the string of lights and you have a perfect mini pumpkin decoration for anywhere in the house. Even your front porch!
How are you decorating this season? I am sure you have some pumpkins out already!
