When it comes to fall decorating, I’m not going to lie…I have been slacking the last few years. Fall is the busiest time of year on our farm and with school and other activities, decorating has taken a backseat.
Since the kids are getting older, I really want them to have happy memories and cozy feels for fall and not just remembering how busy it was.
So I’ve put together 5 easy tips for creating a Cozy Fall Vibe and they won’t break the bank either.
1) Add texture and warmth
Adding some plaid or fall themed pillows and throws is an inexpensive way to add a cozy feel. I’m really loving these Better Homes and Gardens Gray Reversible Plaid Pillows.
If you don’t want to store additional pillows, look for pillow covers (I get mine at Hobby Lobby for about $6/ea when they go on sale).
2) Change out your florals/greenery
We kept the same tray, but switched out the white tulips and vase for burlap sunflowers from the Dollar Tree and a metal vase on clearance from Target. We also added a few other fall pieces.
3) Mix in Pumpkins and other Fall themed items
To make this corner of our house a little cozier, I added these Simply Autumn Sweater Pumpkins from Joann’s (they are already 50% off and there was a coupon off your total order depending on what you spent).
I love incorporating real pumpkins and mums in my fall decor, but they aren’t ready yet. Buying items directly from a farmer or greenhouse can also save you money.
4) You don’t have to go “All or Nothing” with holiday decorating
Years ago, I thought to achieve a holiday look that I had to pack up all of my regular decor and replace it with holiday items. It has taken me a while to realize that you can trade out just a few pieces and mix in holiday stuff. Not only is it a time saver, but I love that some of my favorite pieces are displayed year round.
The silver vase has been a part of our living room since we moved in 7 years ago. I love the versatility of it. To add a little more of a fall vibe, I added this cute Better Homes and Gardens Wire Tray, a fall candle, and a simple pumpkin.
5) There is no right or wrong way to make your home feel cozy…do what makes you smile!
Don’t be afraid to try new things! Mix in fresh flowers and pumpkins with favorite blankets and candles.
Make your home a place that you want to spend time in!
Side Note: If you noticed, I decorate with a lot of trays. It makes it easy to move things out of the way if my kids won’t leave something alone.
