Home Decorating with Autumn Leaves

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Here in New England, the wait for leaves to turn into their warm, bursting fall colors is full of anticipation and excitement (albeit a little dread for what comes after). As much as we love the leaves outside our homes, we love using leaves inside as home accents. Here are some crafty and creative ways to bring these objects indoors.

Leaf ornaments are perfect for hanging in a window, from a wall hook or for adorning a seasonal wreath. These stained glass leaves are handcrafted, and reflect warm light as the sun shines outside.

You could also frame pictures or images of leaves and create a fresh, nature-inspired gallery wall
in a bedroom, hallway or family room. Go green, or choose earthy colors for a harvest look.

If you’re already thinking about an autumn centerpiece, use a table runner as a starting point.
Opt for one designed with leafy shapes, or make your own with leaf printed fabric.

Incorporate fall’s other favorite symbol, the pumpkin, with the following craft from Good Housekeeping. Stick with classic red, yellow and orange colors, or style with a room’s color scheme in mind.

Thursday’s Theme: Table Decor for Your Thanksgiving Table

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Leaf Harvest Table RunnerThere are countless ways to style your table for Thanksgiving dinner – besides with what you’re cooking for food. Here we feature some of our standard recommendations for creating a beautifully decorated table that still has room for all of your delicious side and main dishes, no matter the size or space of the tabletop.

Lighting

Tealights and votive candles are the perfect accents for creating a little mood lighting and adding a touch of elegance to any table. Scatter a few across the table just as they are, use fall-colored candles to add a warm look and/or incorporate them into other décor and centerpieces. Use your favorite scented candles for an inviting atmosphere or opt for flameless varieties so you can leave them lit without worry.

Garland and Wreaths

Long, lush festive garland looks beautiful when draped along a rectangular dining room table – especially when you add pumpkins, turkey figurines and other accents to it. However, if you have a smaller or round table, a small wreath or candle ring can step up the style while still leaving you plenty of room for food and guests.

Place Settings

We love the look of coordinating runners and placemats; they really bring the table together in warm, autumn style, and for family meals, when they are machine washable we love them even more! Whether you use a matching set or not, don’t underestimate the power of decorative (and usable!) plates and glassware. Choose a color scheme like warm reds, yellows and oranges; or use one color like silver, black or brown to make your centerpiece(s) really stand out, while still maintaining coordinating and decorative place settings. This includes festive linens too – for laying beautiful silverware on top of and catching crumbs during the meal.
