Decorating Your Home For Fall
When it comes to decorating your home for the different seasons it’s a great idea to start with what you’ve got.
Dig out all your fall decorations that you have got stored in your home and start by going through the items you already have.
You will need to make some decisions before we move forward:
- What to keep
- The items that you no longer like but aren’t trash
- Broken items that need throwing away
- Any rubbish
Once you have broken down the categories you can see what you have, this will help you decide what you need to get in order to make your house feel like fall.

What To Do With Items You Don’t Like
This can be easy, but you do have a couple of choices to make. You can give them away to friends or family who want these items, don’t force anybody to take anything.
Or you can try and sell the items, there are many places where you can do this for free, most areas have a free Facebook group where you can list items for sale.
If no one wants them and you can’t sell them you can always donate to a charity shop near you.
Before Shopping For The Perfect Fall Decorations
Now we know what we have, it’s time to start looking for some new pieces to add to your fall decorating items.
Let’s start with the most important part of any shopping spree, the budget. Don’t be scared it’s there to help us make the right decisions for our home.
We have to know how much money we have to spend, without this information then you can’t go shopping.
Has your shopping habbits changed this year? Do you go out to shop or are you shopping more online?
I’m looking more and more at what’s available online because it’s easier for me. So, I can sit with my budget and work out what I can get and what I might need to give a miss too.

Home Decoration For Fall
With the changing season, comes the question where to put the seasonal items in your home?
Do you fill up every room or do you just sprinkle a touch here and there?
This is going to be a persoanl preference, but I always think less is more!
So I would go with a few items in the family room, the front of the home or just inside the door and maybe one or two more items depending on the number of rooms in your home.
Fall Decoration For The Porch
It depends where you live as to what you can put out the front, you might have restrictions or your neighbourhood isn’t the safest and that’s OK you can keep your fall decorations on the inside.
Here are some great ideas to get you going for decorating your front porch this fall.
This sign for your porch will look amazing and it is made of wood so you can secure it to the wall, this could ensure that it isn’t taken or falls over and hurts anyone.
Fall Decorations For Your Door
There is nothing prettier than a wreath, they are so versitle and you can style them according to the season.
Here are just a couple that I think look awesome.
This rustic looking fall wreath looks amazing and I love the colour and the texture of this wreath.
This option is more or a traditional fall wreath and is equally stunning.
Fall Decorations For The Table
How about something that makes your table stand out this fall? Have you thought about putting a table decoration out to make the dinning room feel festive?
This table decoration is stunning and it would last a few years too if it’s stored correctly when the season is over.
But what if you don’t want something as big?
This smaller fall basket would make a great alternative.
It’s still really festive and so cute a perfect addition to your fall decorations.
Fall DIY Decorations
Let’s not forget about doing some of these items ourselves, can you gather some fall greenery, small pumpkins and other items that remind you of the fall and put together your own table decoration or even make your own fall wreath.
Don’t be scared of creating something yourself, crafting doesn’t have to stop when you leave school.
