I’m not sure why or how, but this year fall is in every corner of the farmhouse.
It’s almost like it heard October and decided it needed another pumpkin.
I think that’s what I like the best about this season.
Fall isn’t fancy.
Fall isn’t over the top.
It’s the perfect date. It’s a little unshaven, shows up with pumpkin pie….
….and smells really good.
Here’s some easy ideas for simple fall display ideas that leave room for dessert. 🙂
Display idea number 1: Wheat
These stalks of wheat are everywhere.
Add them to a galvanized metal container (the taller the better) and leave them alone.
Wheat is a lot like lip liner.
The simpler the better.
Display idea number 2: Orange
Go old school with $3.00 pumpkins from the grocery.
Remember the days before pumpkins tried to go fancy?
This display is just white dishes and orange pumpkins. Put them under glass cloches. Stack them in front of dishes. Add them to a pedestal.
Simple. Fall. With extra orange.
Display idea number 3: Use what you have
This is one of my favorite mantels I’ve created.
It’s simply cutting boards stacked with a fall sign and a little bit of fall color.
If you don’t have cutting boards, it might be cute look with empty picture frames instead.
Display idea number 4: Hydrangea and magnolia
They go together better than peanut butter and jelly.
Something about the combination is perfect for October.
Tuck them into a hollowed out faux pumpkin. Layer them together in mason jars. Twist them together and make a garland. Make a wreath for the front door.
Display idea number 5: White dishes
Sometimes, when I don’t know where else to turn, I just add a little white ware.
You can stack pumpkins on it. Or add a nest with an acorn. Or stack plates with pumpkins.
This display would still look pretty even if I just added only a couple of pumpkins using the white dishes as a back drop.
Display idea number 6: Wood slices
Wood slices are fall’s best friend.
They are always hanging around the man cave. You can use them in a centerpiece or make a wreath from them or make a fall cutting board or make them into a pumpkin.
Just make sure they pick up after themselves when they leave.
Display idea number 7: Pumpkins
Nothing says fall like pumpkins.
Especially if you make them yourself. Like these chenille pumpkins or fabric pumpkins or wood twig pumpkins or address pumpkins or even a pumpkin painted with your state.
Here’s to fall.
Here’s to magnolia and hydrangea and orange and pumpkins and wood slices and using what you have.
Happy fall decorating from all my corners to yours.
PS Sending thoughts and prayers to every one facing the storm this morning. Please know you are on my heart.
