Autumn Colors, Designs, and Flowers

When the seasons change, most people also change up their décor.  They put out new pillows, change the quilt or blankets on their bed, and even put up some new pictures.  Well, now that autumn is here, it’s time to take a look at the colors of fall and what you can do with them!

The colors of fall are the colors of the falling leaves: red, orange, yellow, and brown.  Some people also add in deep green, dark purple, and even a little bit of dark blue.  Using these colors as accents with the traditional fall colors can really make them pop.  These colors are bold and powerful, so you may want to use them sparingly.

What can you add to your home décor in these colors?  Here are some ideas:

•    Tablecloth, table runner, place mats, and napkin rings
•    Candles, especially ones that use fall scents
•    Gourds
•    Pumpkins (large and small)
•    Pine cones
•    Scarecrows
•    Throw pillows
•    Blankets and wraps to put on your sofa
•    Leaves, branches, and twigs (arranged in a vase, they can look nice)
•    Fall wreaths using many of the above items

Naturally, you may want to add a lot of fall flowers to your decorations as well.  There are a number of different flowers that bloom in the late summer and fall.  Here are a few of them:

•    Orange roses
•    White daisies
•    Chrysanthemums
•    Copper canyon daisies
•    Marigold
•    Mountain Sage
•    Caryopteris
•    Sunflowers
•    Carnations

Thanksgiving Decorating

With Thanksgiving almost here, many people have started putting out their decorations for the holiday.  What have you been decorating with?  For Thanksgiving, many people pull out decorations from these three categories: fall colors, turkeys, and pilgrims.

Fall colors are the easiest Thanksgiving decorations to find.  For one thing, you’ll start seeing napkins, table cloths, and place mats in fall colors as early as mid-August.  You can use these decorations for several months before Thanksgiving, so they’re very versatile, too.  The different reds, golds, yellows, oranges, and browns can even be threaded throughout your home to give you a cohesive theme.  In addition to items in these colors, you can include pumpkins, gourds, fall leaves, branches, pine cones, and fall flowers.

The turkey is the animal associated with Thanksgiving, and as such, it appears on a number of different items.  You’ll find small plastic turkeys, salt and pepper shakers shaped like turkeys, turkey napkin rings, turkeys on tablecloths, and much more.  Some of them are realistic, while some are more cartoonish.  Whichever you like, you’ll be able to choose from a number of cute turkey decorations.

Finally, many people like to include pilgrim decorations in their Thanksgiving theme.  Based on the story of the first Thanksgiving, popular pilgrims are usually depicted dressed in black and white formal clothing, and generally they feature both a man and a woman pilgrim.  Again, some are cartoonish, while others are more serious images.

Many people like to mix and match these three themes.  They might go with solid fall colors for the tablecloth and napkins but add a centerpiece featuring pilgrims, for example.  Be creative and go with Thanksgiving decorative items that match your home and create the holiday look you like the most.
