If I'm really honest, the only time I'm typically a seasonal decorator is for Christmas. At this point in my life, that's mostly because I just don't have the storage space for all of those off-season decorations!
But this year, I've caught the bug. The fall decor bug. And I just can't get enough of it. This weekend I revamped my kitchen table centerpiece to bring some of those gorgeous fall colors inside, and I'm sharing 5 steps to a perfect fall centerpiece.
1. Deep colors. There's nothing that says "fall" more than deep reds, oranges, browns and yellows. I love the explosion of colors that come with fall - bring that inside!
2. Candles. Fall brings cool nights and the darkness comes earlier. Since we can't have a fireplace inside, the next best thing for me is cozying up in a blanket with the heat on, sweats, and some pretty candles.
3. Budding sprigs or flowers that bloom in the fall. I really wanted a spriggy, twig look for my centerpiece, but I couldn't find exactly what I had pictured in the store. The buddy twigs pictured above are the closest I could find, but I think it really works. The last thing you want in your fall centerpiece is a very summery looking flower.
4. Pumpkins! I really want to get some small pumpkins to put inside (probably fake), and maybe even paint them. I've seen a lot of cute white pumpkins that have awesome designs painted on them - a cluster of those would make a great centerpiece.
5. Something that can be redecorated for the next season. The box in the pictures above usually looks like this. It's nice to have a "standard" that I can change up slightly each season, because it keeps me from storing gobs of decor all year long!
What would you add to the list? Have you done any fall decorating?
