1. Change Your Wreath: When guests arrive at your home, they should always be greeted with a warm welcome. To get your guests in the spirit of the season, place an autumnal wreath on your front door, to instantly put them in the mood for enjoying fall.
From pre-made wreathes featuring dried leaves and faux berries (in deep autumnal hues) to DIY hand-made wreaths using materials found in nature, an autumnal wreath instantly dresses up your front door and adds a touch of fall to your home.
2. Add Scented Candles: Since we’re often inspired by the aromas we smell as we enter a house, a quick and easy way to update your home for fall is to add scented candles that envelop the essence of autumn. From cinnamon and nutmeg infused scents to earthy, nature-inspired scents, seasonal candles are an affordable way to help you and your guests relax and enjoy the slower pace of the season.
For added visual impact to this easy autumnal decor update, place a scented candle in a glass bowl filled half-way with acorns or pinecones that you have collected from nature.
3. Use Seasonal Table Linens: When entertaining at home, instead of completely revamping the look of your decor for each season or going all-out on autumnal decor, a simple and effective way to update your home for fall is to change out your table linens for seasonally-themed linens, including runners, tablecloths and napkins.
Ranging from leaf motifs to pumpkin embroidered linens, seasonal table linens spice up your dining table without putting a big dent in your budget. Another key tip is to opt for cotton linens (instead of silk), which can be tossed in the laundry machine after each use (rather than needing to be dry-cleaned).
No matter how you plan to enjoy fall festivities, these 3 easy ways to update your home for fall should make the process of transitioning into the new season more enjoyable and pleasurable. Cheers to a fabulous fall!
