I have been watching the leaves fall from the backyard trees and silently celebrating the changing of the season. This time of year, with pumpkins and gourds of all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures abundant at the farmers’ market, grocery store, and even craft stores, fall décor touches are plentiful. Here are some quick and easy fall decorating ideas for your home—many of which can last all the way through Thanksgiving.
Set the table for fall with these gorgeous centerpiece ideas. You’ll want to throw a dinner party just to show off these beauties!

Hurricanes, pillar candles, and moss are tucked in clay flowerpots and grouped with more moss, grapevines, bittersweet, and small gourds in this lovely picnic table centerpiece.
You can tuck in a bit of fall just about anywhere—mantles, side tables, entryways, etc.—as these lovely arrangements show.
Mantles are an ideal home for fall arrangements. Here, gourds, fruit, pine, leaves, and other natural elements create a pretty display.
Cotton branches might not be the first thing you think of for fall décor, but when arranged in a large jug and surrounded by pumpkins real and faux, they make a sophisticated seasonal mantel display.

Gourds large and small are featured in many fall decorations. But if the typical orange or green doesn’t suit your fancy, you can give them a quick and easy makeover with your favorite colors of chalk paint, metallic paint, or gold leaf.
How better to welcome family, friends, and fall to your home than with a beautiful fall wreath or hanging arrangement on your front door? These wonderful wreaths and arrangements will warmly invite your guests inside.
Cyndy crafted this eye-catching wreath for her front door by tucking faux persimmon stems into a grapevine wreath. Quick, easy, and so pretty!
A wreath of pinecones hung simply from a wide ribbon is classically fall. You can purchase premade wreaths or collect pinecones from your yard and make your own wreath.
Cyndy put together this striking swag of dried naturals using wheat, lotus pods, cynara flowers, and raffia. She explains how she did it here.
Celebrate all things fall by adding pretty natural touches to your décor. Pull leaves, branches, gourds, and more from your yard, craft stores, farmers’ markets, or wherever you find fall inspiration.
