Add a Fall Wreath
Your door is the first welcome for those coming to your home, so greet visitors and fall with a new autumnal wreath. Swap out citrus colors and summer brights with earthy tones and fall foliage. Of course, wreaths aren’t just for the front door, as you can place them on the mantle, in the kitchen, or any place that needs a touch of autumn. Here are some DIY fall wreath ideas to help get the creative juices flowing!

Replace Summer Flowers with Fall Foliage
An easy way to transition your decor from summer to fall is to change your floral arrangements and potted plants to seasonal varieties. If you have artificial flowers in arrangments, pack up the bright summer blooms and bring out your fall florals. For patios and porches, start replacing your annuals as they die out with pretty autumn plants. Some great options for fall include mums, succulents, pansies, and even cabbages! For smaller spaces you can put in tiny air plants nestled in terrariums filled with Poly-Pellets Weighted Stuffing Beads.
Tablescapes for Fall
Another way to bring fall into your home is to rethink your table decor! Set the stage for autumn with fall themed table runners, placemats, and more.

Pack Up Summer Pillows & Add Fall Warmth
A tried and true method for changing your decor every season is to change out your accent pillows! I like to stock up on a variety of sizes of pillow inserts so that I can just swap out the pillow covers every season. My favorite inserts for porch and patio pillows are Weather Soft™ pillow inserts, because they have a water repellant shell.

Transitioning your decor from summer to fall is a creative process that allows you to celebrate the changing seasons within the comfort of your own home. Remember, the key to a successful transition is to focus on elements like color, texture, and accessories. Incorporate earthy tones, cozy textiles, and seasonal decorations like pumpkins, gourds, and fall foliage to bring the spirit of autumn indoors. Don’t forget to embrace the scents of fall through candles and potpourri, which can add an extra layer of ambiance to your space.
Ultimately, the goal is to create a home environment that not only reflects the beauty of fall but also provides a sense of comfort and warmth as the days grow shorter and the temperatures drop. Let your creativity flow and enjoy the process of transforming your home into a cozy autumn retreat. Happy decorating!
