It is fall once again and when it starts to feel cool in the air and the leaves begin to change it is time to change up the house decorations. I wanted to show you how I have taken my decorations from summer into fall using all of the same decorations just in a different way to change from a bright summer feel into the cooler fall look.
This wreath is a twig wreath I bought at Tai Pan that I change just by pulling out the summer flowers in it and adding some fall sprigs. If you look close you can see I left all the green flowers. I use all colors when I decorate but green tends to be a base color I use with all seasons.
I’m showing the pictures from summer to fall so you can see the difference.
I have fun decorating this cubby in my dinning table area. Here I added the red and gold to give it a fall touch. When I decorate I have a pretty busy style. I like to layer to give it dimension. This year I’ve loved the gold’s. When I get ready to change things I take everything down and set it together and then just start to rearrange everything. When you use the same item two different ways it feels new again.
I’ve always had this yellow/brown shelf in my laundry room so I switched the white shelf with the yellow one to help emphasize the fall color scheme. I also switched my summer picture with my fall quaky picture. I bought this picture at Swiss days a few years ago. This picture was taken in Alpine Canyon and then the artist added our individual names to each tree so it looks like we carved them.
Here I want to show you how by just adding some black ribbon and green beads to this platter it looks great for Halloween. I use this same platter at Christmas time and add red ribbon.
Table runners and centerpiece can change the look for the season pretty easily. In the spring I used a blue runner so I switched it with this brown and gold runner I found at target last fall. When I was looking to change up the table centerpiece I found this wood plank at Tai Pan in the back clearance. It is meant to hang from the ceiling with chains for candles. You could create a similar look with an old piece of wood. I’ve wrapped the candle with burlap and lace and filled the bottom of the vase with yellow split peas…..I think that’s what they are called.
I hope my ideas have helped you think about the decorations you already have and the new ways you can use them for each season.
