Decorating Your Dining Room for Fall
Fall officially arrived this week, even though it certainly doesn’t feel like it outside here in San Antonio (90+ degree days with no end in sight)! However, at least inside my home, fall is in the air! This set of shelves in my dining room got a fall makeover for my latest decorating project for Oriental Trading’s Fun365.com. I started with some vases, serving platters and other neutral accents that I already had displayed on my shelves. Then I incorporated in a few fall accents like mini pumpkins and fall leaves. I also added a special piece I made myself – this Hello Fall pom-pom pumpkin!
A three-tiered serving platter like the one below is one of my favorite pieces to decorate for the changing seasons. For fall, I incorporated some mini pumpkins such as these sweet raffia pumpkins and burlap pumpkins, along with some faux leaves and votive candles. For winter, I’ll swap in faux evergreen sprigs and a few shiny ornaments.
I challenge you to pick a spot in your home and mix it up for the changing seasons, whether it is a set of shelves like these, a fireplace mantel, or a corner in your kitchen! It provides an instant dose of festivity and coziness without having to decorate your entire home. I love the challenge of using pieces I already have on hand by “shopping my home” and moving items between rooms to give them a completely different look.
