As the seasons change from summer to fall, we enter into a time of thanksgiving and reflection; thanking God for all that He has blessed us with this year. We open our homes to family and friends and share in the joys and blessings of the season together. Prepare your home for harvest by creating a warm and welcoming space with these fall decorating ideas.
Freshen Up Your Front Porch Swap out your summer flowers for more seasonal plants by adding mums to your flowerpots. Consider hanging an autumn wreath on the door or displaying pumpkins, squash and corn stalks on your porch to create a festive look and feel.
Decorate Your Dining Room Table Craft a centerpiece by placing textured fabrics in a basket and filling it with squash, leaves and acorns. Trade in your every day dishes for festive plates, platters and mugs with inspirational messages that remind you just how blessed you truly are.
Light Candles Take advantage of the shorter days by lighting candles in the evening. Not only do they look pretty, they make your home smell wonderful. Place them in several rooms throughout the house to create a cozy ambiance.
Set Aside a Quiet Space Transform an area of your home into a cozy reading corner. Use this space to cuddle up with your devotions and spend some time getting into God’s Word. Lay out a throw blanket and some fluffy pillows to kick up the comfort level.
Incorporating even one of these ideas will make your home feel warm and cozy for fall so pick your favorite and get started. Need an excuse to decorate? We’re offering 25% Off Harvest Gifts, including wall art and dining products, now through October 13.
