Decorating Ideas for Fall and Halloween – Mantles, Tables, Porches and More…
As a Decorator, you might think that I’d LOVE decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving…think again.
While I LOVE the holiday seasons and the festivities, I find myself getting stressed out when it comes time to ‘decorate’. I’m not really a jack-o-lantern, ghost and goblin kind of gal – all that kitschy hoo-ha makes me twitch. So when it comes to decorating for the season, I like to keep things simple and easy…really easy.
Decorating Idea #1 Pile O’ Punkins
Via Adore Home
I wasn’t joking when I said ‘easy’! With a dollar store vase a bottle of wine and a bag o’ punkins you could create this look in seconds!
Decorating Idea #2 A Nice Set of Hooters
Need I say more? My Mom is so proud…
Decorating Idea #3 Gourd-eous FellowsVia Parent.com
These gourds make me smile with their googly eyes and dumbfounded looks – I know the kids would love dressing them up too!
Decorating Idea #4 Drilled Pumpkins
Tim normally doesn’t trust me with power tools – but really, how could I go wrong with this project?
Decorating Idea #5 Tea Light Holders
I love the simplicity of these little beauties – great for a table center or mantle.
Decorating Idea #6 Cat O’ Lanterns
While this might not be the ‘easiest’ (for those of use who aren’t so artsy-fartsy) I can just see the kids faces lighting up when they see these spooky cats!
Decorating Idea #7 All That Glitters…
Whether it’s for Thanksgiving or just general festivities, this gold-inspired table will add ambience to any gathering.
Decorating Idea #8 Easy Peasy Pumpkin Squeezy
Via Home Talk
If this one isn’t easy enough for you then we really need to talk. A pumpkin, some flowers and a yard of fabric can add an inviting touch to any porch or entryway.
Decorating Idea #9 A Y-urning for Pumpkins
Via EAB Designs
Urns are such a great investment as they can be changed up every season and I love this pumpkin topped idea for Halloween and Thanksgiving!
You could get this look with greenery or with fallen leaves in lovely fall colours (more up my alley being an earth-toned gal)
Decorating Idea #10 I love you Mums
Via 17 Apart
You just can’t go wrong with a pot of flowers on your front porch. Paired with a set o’ pumpkins you’ll be all set for the Fall season!
So there you have it my friends, Happy Fall!
