It’s almost that the time of year again when the leaves will be changing to those beautiful foliage colors. From green leaves to dark green, brown, red, orange and yellow while the leaves fall off the trees to whisking away in the wind all over the ground. This is one of my all time favorite seasons in the year and another reason why I am planning my wedding in October of next year. The fall season also just gives me more of a reflection that there will be cozy evenings to sip hot cocoa and anticipating the holiday season. Also, I only decorate my home for the fall and holiday seasons. Then, I start preparing my decor during the fall season for Christmas.
Fall decorating is fun and if you’re into Halloween then that can also be incorporated with your fall home decor. Keep in mind that decorating for the fall season can be very versatile. Going with a certain theme to highlight your fall home decor will really make everything sparkle. For instance, I love pumpkins and colors for fall but I could go with rustic as well. Such as utilizing baskets (we all have them around the house), mason jars, acorns, pinecones and pumpkins.
These are some ideas on how you can use a mason jars by adding small pine cones and topping it with artificial autumn flowers. Another mason jar idea is adding small lights with acorns all around or an LED candle will let your jars glow with a sparkly look. Most of the items in the pictures above can be found at Kirkland’s and Michaels stores.

- Mason Jars and Lightning (Kirkland’s)
Another great idea to add fall decor around your home is using apothecary jars with using the same type of decor accents like acorns and pumpkins. Inserting the pumpkins inside the apothecary jars and adding a variety of pumpkin colors. These can also be found at Kirkland’s that are very affordable!
There are different but simple ways to add some autumn flair in your home. The decor accents will look great and gain special attention in the living room especially on a fireplace mantle, coffee table or an end table. If your home has a foyer area with a table, the apothecary jars would work perfectly that would get the ooh’s and aww’s from your guests. Another area to showcase your fall decor in your home is in your guest bedroom and guest bathroom or powder room. Add fall towels in the guest bathroom to make your fall accents really be a great highlight in your home.
