Saying that you are decorating for autumn (instead of Halloween) allows you to really string out your decor for a lot longer than you would otherwise be able to do ;) Here are some beautiful decor ideas to get you started thinking about how you can incorporate some autumn into your own home.
This is a really simple idea that can also be done on a budget. These goblets can be purchased from Christmas Tree Store, Walmart, or even Dollar Tree (if they have them). Acorns can be found in your yard or the park :)
This is the same idea, but a little dressier. The acorns are sprayed gold, but can be done in any color that you feel would match your fall decor or the decor that adorns your home all year round. The candles also make a nice addition to what is going on in this tablescape!
This could be a project that you can pawn off on your kids and re-touch after they go to bed. The pedistols can be purchased cheaply at Savers or Salvation Army and then sprayed to unify the decor a bit. Love this idea.
Another fun pumpkin idea. I think you can figure this one out yourself :)
This pumpkin flower pot would be fabulous on a porch or a deck in the back. It would look so pretty with bright color mums. I can just picture a pop of color from pink or purple mums and the sharp contrast of the dark green stems and the orange pumpkin. You could do this with a real pumpkin (although that would entail a bit more work) or a faux pumpkin, which you could use year after year with little repeated work.
These lanterns are EVERYWHERE right now! They are fairly cheap at Christmas Tree Shop, but you can also get them at TJ Maxx and they seem to have more of a variety. This would look great on a front stoop or in an entryway mudroom.
