Decorating Ideas for Fall

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

There’s something so refreshing about the fall season – maybe its the relief of the cooler weather after our hot summer months, maybe it’s the nostalgic feeling you get when you take the kids back to the same pumpkin patch you visited as a child or maybe it’s the reminder that some of our favorite holidays are just around the corner.

Being a holiday fanatic, I am always decorating my home for the upcoming holiday season, be it hanging an American Flag on the porch for Independence Day or stringing Christmas lights around the trees in my front yard for the holiday season.  What do you do to decorate and celebrate fall at your house?

While browsing one of our vendor’s Pinterest pages, Modern Posh, we noticed this amazing pumpkin decoration idea, which was shared from decorating ideas on Lauren Conrad’s website.  I thought this amazingly easy craft idea would make for the perfect decoration for a Halloween party, or an even better backdrop accessory for taking fall family photos for your Halloween greeting cards.

Perfectly elegant, sophisticated, and mildly dark, all you have to do is take a medium size pumpkin or gourd and place it into a lace stocking, like the black one shown, and then tie off the ends.  You could even use multiple pumpkins painted different fall colors from orange to cream or white.  I can image this gorgeous decoration sitting on my front porch or on the glass table in my entryway as you walk into my home, acting as a welcoming fall decoration.

What other cute ideas do you have for the fall season?  Share your ideas with us as we break into fall…and remember, it’s never too early to start planning your own Halloween party or taking pictures for those adorable Halloween greeting cards.  Make it a full-on pumpkin theme using the above idea and you’ll have an elegant, antique and vintage fall piece which will have all of your friends, family and neighbors wondering just how you are SO creative this fall season!
