Time flies and the autumn season is almost upon us! As the leaves start to change color and fall off the trees, it’s time to add some seasonal touches to your home. These seasonal touches will focus on each aspect of Autumn to ensure all of your senses are satisfied, from seeing, to tasting and feeling! Here are five tips from Plan B Cleaning to help you decorate your home this fall.
1) Fall Colors
One of the easiest ways to change up your home’s look for fall is by adding a pop of color. You can do this in a few different ways, such as adding a colorful throw blanket to your couch or swapping out your hand towels for ones with fall colors. Another way to incorporate fall colors into your decorating is by using some seasonal accents and furniture. For example, you might swap out your bedding set for one that has leaves on it or replace your lamps with ones that have a darker hue than usual.
2) Fall Scents
The first step to getting your home ready for fall is to add a touch of pumpkin spice. You can do this by burning scented candles, diffusing essential oils, or baking something delicious. Take a trip to Bath and Body Works for candles, or you can also explore the world of essential oils on sites like Young Living. Also, don’t forget the most important part of fall scents: food! Stock up on all of your favorite seasonal goodies so you can enjoy them all season long. Whether it’s pumpkin pie, cinnamon apple crisps, or just a good cup of coffee, these snacks will leave your stomach and your nose satisfied.
3) Fall Weather
As the weather cools down and the leaves start to change color, it’s the perfect time to cozy up your home for fall. Here are a few tips to get you started:
1. As suggested before, create a warm ambiance by lighting candles in scents like pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and vanilla.
2. Set up your fireplace.
3. Invest in a weighted blanket and soft throw pillows.
These few things will keep you warm and cozy as it gets darker and colder outside.
4) Fall Accents
Fall accents really bring the outside season into your home! Adding wreaths and garlands is an easy way to add some fall flare. You can find these items at most craft stores or even make them yourself. You can pick fall foliage, like colorful leaves, sunflowers, berries, and so on. Adding some pumpkins, either real or fake, is also a great way to decorate for the fall season. You can put them on your porch, in your windows, or even inside your home. The pumpkins will last through Thanksgiving, as well! The hardest part about this project is deciding which pumpkins you want to buy! There are so many different styles, sizes, shapes, etc. The perfect pumpkin may be waiting for you just around the corner! For example, one popular place for buying pumpkins is Trader Joe’s. They have pre-cut ones that are already cleaned out and ready to go, but they also have bigger ones if you want something more exciting (and filling!). If you’re looking for a little more decoration than the average pumpkin, I suggest checking out Five Below. They have such cute seasonal decor at an affordable price. But remember, as your local cleaners, we have to advise you to be mindful of your purchases here. Only buy things that you will want to store away for next year and reuse – do not create clutter!
5) Fall Festivities
One of the best things about fall is all the fun activities that come along with it. From corn mazes and pumpkin patches to Halloween parties and hayrides, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. And what better way to get into the spirit of the season than by decorating your home with some festive fall décor? Here are 5 tips to get you started
1. Ditch the bright lights in favor of soft shades like amber or gold. The softer light will give your house a warm glow that feels cozy.
2. Replace floral arrangements with pumpkins, gourds, and foliage like ivy or cedar boughs.
3. Instead of using faux flowers, try using real leaves as decoration around window sills or tablescapes.
4. Try painting a few wooden spoons with enamel paint (for example orange) then lay them out on an old window screen laid flat on your lawn–it’ll make an easy yet elegant focal point!
5. Halloween decorations: spider webs, scary jack o’lanterns, and whatever else floats your boat would be great to add to both your home and front porch.
