Fall is finally here and Halloween is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate the season and get cozy than with some festive decor, especially since Covid is keeping us at home more. I absolutely love this time of year and Autumn decorations are definitely my favorite. The pretty orange tones, spooky pieces and yummy apple & pumpkin spice smelling candles always put me in a delightful mood. Of course when it comes to decorating I always search for the best deals, so I gathered up some of my favorite decorated areas of my home and want to share the how to’s and where you can get some of these fab Fall finds.
Decorating my mantle/fireplace area is my favorite because you can do so much with it and it’s usually the focal point of the room. This year I kept with the white & black buffalo plaid theme throughout my house and added a lot of pops of orange and rustic pieces and just little touches of Halloween. I usually add more Halloween pieces in October. Much of these items I found on Amazon and are super affordable, including the buffalo check throw, stick on bats, LED candles and lantern. The “Halloween Farm” pillow cover came in a set; I love pillow covers because instead of having to store a ton of throw pillows, I can just switch out the covers for the season. This saves space and money, and Amazon has a HUGE selection of fun pillow covers for every season & holiday.
The lantern was plain when I bought it, but with an LED candle inside, plaid ribbon and a distressed faux sunflower I found at Hobby Lobby, it turned into a really pretty Fall piece. The “Witch Please” pillow cover is one of my favorites and I picked that up along with the LED witch pumpkin at Big Lots. They have some amazing and affordable decorations! Another cool idea that I love is to search YouTube for backgrounds with ambient music to display on the TV when we aren’t watching it. It adds to the cozy vibe and you can usually find one that matches your aesthetic.
For my dining table I kept with the white & black buffalo plaid and added this orange plaid runner I found on Amazon. A lot of these decorations I found from Michael’s, they have some of the best deals and coupons and this year’s Hocus Pocus collection (including this spell book & black cat) is to die for! They have an assortment of chargers, LED candles, pillar holders, florals and trays to create a beautiful scene. Again I mixed rustic fall with a few Halloween pieces to create a fun tablescape that will get you in the Autumn spirit.
Decorative trays like this white wooden tray from Michaels’s, are a great way to create sweet little scenes for your coffee table, side tables, even your bed. I love how they add just a little something extra to your home decor. Here I added some different textured and colored pumpkins from Hobby Lobby & Dollar Tree, and the “Snuggle is Real” tabletop sign is from Big Lots. No coffee table is complete without a Fall scented candle, and Bath & Body Works recently had their 3 wick candle sale so of course I was all over it!
In the Summer my breakfast nook had lemons “for sale”, but I switched it up with these cute little gourds and florals from Hobby Lobby and the chalkboard sign is from Amazon along with the galvanized pitcher and pillow covers. Simple little details can really make a big difference when setting your scene! I stuck with the white buffalo plaid once again in the kitchen, but kept it more Fall than Halloween with pops of golden yellow and orange.
This year I decided to extend the life our of sun room and decorate it for fall and add a cute little electric fireplace space heater. By adding some Autumn print pillow covers from Amazon and a few gourds, fall florals, candle holders and festive signs from Dollar Tree, I was able to make a really cozy space for a great low price! The key is to pick like 3 main colors and go from there. I chose to play up the existing burnt red orange and warm yellow throughout the space. This actually has become my new favorite spot to drink my morning coffee under a blanket and watch the leaves fall.
I hope my Fall decor gave you some inspiration for your own home! You can easily create a warm and inviting space for you and your family as well with affordable decorations and a little creativity. Be sure to subscribe to get more ideas and inspo delivered directly to your inbox!
