Ready to turn your home into the coziest harvest haven? We know the end of the year can be stressful with all the back-to-back holidays, so keeping up with the right decorations and details can feel like a chore. However, we’ve whipped up the secret recipe for keeping things simple and stylish all Autumn long. So without further ado, here are the top Bonjour Fête-approved fall decorating ideas and home decor pieces to carry you through October and into Thanksgiving!
Hello Pumpkin! Perhaps the easiest way to decorate for fall is by going heavy with pumpkin decor and harvest themed accents. So add a little spice to your space with faux pumpkins of all shapes, colors and sizes.
We love these paper mache mini pumpkins because they’re inexpensive and make such a fun statement on a bookshelf or mantle. We went with the classic orange color, but they come in so many fabulous rainbow hues that you’re bound to find one that complements your living room color palette.
Or, if fake pumpkins aren't your thing—decorate with real ones! The best part? Once you're done with them, you can make toasted pumpkin seeds! (Yum!)
Keeping with the pumpkin theme, we're obsessed with this felt banner! It works for Halloween or Thanksgiving, so it’ll be happy in your home for weeks. Hang it over your fireplace, above your front door, or on your dinner table for a warm and welcoming touch of autumn.
But why stop at just one banner? We love a good layered look, and thankfully we have plenty of Thanksgiving garlands and banners to go around!
Autumn wreaths are a must-have for aesthetic fall and Thanksgiving decor. We especially love the look and longevity of a dried floral arrangement.
Take it from our CMO, Royale Ziegler who decorated her home in these beauties! "Dried florals in vases, and in wreaths, will last well beyond one holiday. Switch out the ribbon and accent decor on a dried wreath to make it more holiday-specific."
We also love the earthy look of dried branches in a simple vase. And the best part is, you can DIY an arrangement by stepping outside and picking out some pine cones and foliage from mother nature. Hello, easy and inexpensive Thanksgiving decoration!
The key to a cozy fall space: Soft subtlety. That means fall accents that blend in seamlessly with the rest of your decor. Decorating with neutral tones, woven baskets, and fall-themed knick-knacks will instantly turn your home into an autumn dream!
It's easy to add just a few fall holiday home decor items to style the season! How cute is this tumeric woven bowl? The color pops beautifully against any color scheme, and it makes a great catch-all dish for keys and trinkets.
And if there's anything your home needs for Thanksgiving time, it's all the heavenly fall candles! These soy jar candles are so aesthetically pleasing, and they smell amazing! We also love incorporating tapered candles in eclectic glass candle holders on shelves or as a cozy dining table centerpiece.
Speaking of dining tables, everyone knows the most important part of a festive fall home is a stunning Thanksgiving table-scape! If you really want a dining room that is sure to impress your guests, keep your table set and styled all season long. And, spruce it up with a gingham tablecloth, a dried floral arrangement, and some pumpkin tableware.
If your taste is more minimalistic, we recommend these ombre pumpkin plates for your fall table settings. We mixed them in with our rustic stone plates, amber glass cups, gold cutlery, and other permanent dining items for a more elevated look.
And for other table decor, we scattered a few harvest-fresh gourds, plastic pumpkins, and maple leaf napkins. Quick tip: sprinkling autumn themed decorative accents along the center of your table is an excellent alternative to a table runner.
And if you really want your table to shout Thanksgiving, these Le Gobble plates and feathered turkey platter are a must! They’re great for adults and kids Thanksgiving parties, and pair beautifully with any table color scheme. We're all about eating' turkey on turkey tableware.
We hope you're just as excited as we are to decorate for fall and Thanksgiving! Here's to a cozy and cheerful holiday home!
