What you need to create a beautiful fall dining space

When you are spending hot days enjoying the sunshine, it may not seem like fall is right around the corner. However, temperatures will drop and the leaves will start to turn before you know it. 

Depending on where you live, the change in season means breaking out a new wardrobe and changing the decor around your house. If you like to decorate and enjoy a festive table, there are many ways to get your dining area fit for fall entertaining. 

Ideas to consider when purchasing fall table decor

Fall details 

Water Goblets Set of 4 Multi Purpose 16 oz

While a centerpiece can make table decor pop, coasters, napkin holders, glasses and fall-themed dishes can help bring everything together. 

Toopify 16PCS Artificial Red Apples

A simple fruit bowl can be a great starting point for fall decor. Artificial apples, pumpkins or pinecones help create a seasonal atmosphere, and they are long-lasting, so you don’t have to worry about your centerpiece dying. If you’d like a floral centerpiece, fall flowers or fake baby’s breath can look great on any table. 

Yankee Candle Elevation Collection with Platform Lid Ginger Pumpkin Scented Candle

Candles are a nice touch any time of year, and pumpkin-scented candles capture the spirit of the season. Flameless candles are a great choice if you don’t want an open flame, especially if you have pets or kids running around. 

Holiday themes 

For a simple fall theme, plan your decor around the fall holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving. Halloween decor can be an especially fun choice if you have a house full of kids who will get into the spooky spirit of the season. Investing in Halloween decor that can be used year after year will help make decorating easy. 

If you’d like to have a more minimalist scheme, consider sticking to solid colors when picking out tablecloths, plates and napkins. Choosing holiday colors, like black and orange, can create an understated, yet festive feel.

41 Pieces Thanksgiving Hanging Swirl Decorations

When November hits, Thanksgiving decorations become more popular. Choosing earthtone decorations in colors like brown, red and orange will capture the traditional Thanksgiving feel.  These decorations fill the time between Halloween and Christmas, and they keep the house festive all season. 

Accessorize the rest of your house 

The Lakeside Collection Home Sign and Wreath Set for Fall and Holidays

Once you get your table looking the way you want it, you can turn your attention to the rest of your house. Fall signs and wreath sets can liven up your wall or front door, while fall-themed pillows and blankets for the couch add flair to the rest of the house.
