It’s already becoming that time of year again when we begin thinking about the fall harvest season. Although we would like to stretch summer out as long as possible, we know it’s inevitable that we’ll have to bring the outdoor fun back inside. The nights are getting cooler and kids will soon be headed back to school; a time for new beginnings. The transition from summer to fall is not an easy one, but let Sturbridge Yankee Workshop ease you into it with some of our fall decorating ideas.
Our Pumpkin Wreath is a great way to start. Place in your doorway to greet your guests as they enter your home. Another fall welcome idea is Sturbridge’s Sunflower Doormat that mixes both bright summer flowers and some very bold sunflowers; a perfect way to transition your decor. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we know it’s important to feel warm and cozy as we lose precious daylight and the air outside becomes crisp. Sometimes even switching out your curtains to ones with a thicker material can create a sense of comfort in your home. Try our Insulated Cotton Tab Top Curtains for a unique and simple look. Add another layer to your bedding or wrap yourself up in one of Sturbridge’s amazingly soft Apothecary Quilts coming in a range of color options.
Perhaps you live where the weather outside doesn’t change, but that isn’t an excuse for not joining in on the fun! Autumn offers a lot of flexibility in your decor because it bridges the gap between two larger themes of summer/outdoor living and the big festive holidays in December. Lighting can be a good way to bring that wanted ambiance back into your home this season. Consider the Amber Plum Tree Lights that create a soft orange glow that will be an eye catching decor piece both day and night.
Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference in seasonal decorating. These extra touches here and there are easy to display and easy to remove when changing from season to season. This is true especially in the Kitchen and one idea is our Pumpkin Wagon Salt and Pepper Set that is both whimsical, yet practical. However you choose to bring fall decor into your home this harvest season make sure you check out Sturbridge Yankee Workshop’s entire collection of Fall Harvest Items!
