Fall Decorating Ideas


As the temperatures drop and pumpkin spice lattes return, the new season leaves some of us wondering how to decorate our homes in celebration of the new season. With Halloween and Thanksgiving on the horizon, there’s no time like the present to add some autumn pizzazz to your home.

Enjoy the sweater weather and make your house feel like home with these decorating tips from the team at The Waters.


1. Upgrade Your Curb Appeal with Wreaths 

One of the best ways to prepare for the fall months is to upgrade your curb appeal. Wreaths are a fun way to personalize the exterior of your home and promote a warm, inviting environment. A wreath of earthy hues or golden tones will certainly get everybody in the right spirit. 

Or opt for a jack-o-lantern to show off your Halloween spirit. Whatever you choose, accentuating your home is a fun, inexpensive decor option for the fall season.


2. Dress Up Your Thanksgiving Table

Achieve timeless, elegant table settings every year with table decorations. When buying decorations to dress up your table, we recommend choosing neutral hues that you can add seasonal pops of color to for each new holiday occasion. Burlap, green, or orange table runners are a simple, but effective way to warm up your dining space for turkey day. If you want to dress your table for a more formal experience, seasonal chargers are a great addition. 

Or, if you want a more natural, organic look, take advantage of the abundance of pine cones found throughout The Waters’ wooded landscapes this time of year— they look picture-perfect next to a turkey. From tablecloths to decorative pumpkins to pine cones, the options are endless for you to dress up your Thanksgiving table in style!


3. Ramp Up the Cozy Factor

If you are getting ready for football season and thinking about bringing friends over, ensuring that everyone feels right at home in this family-friendly neighborhood is all about the little things that help everybody feel comfy and cozy. 

Of course, with The Waters’ custom spaces, you can design your own dream home that guarantees a cozy living area, but some ways to upgrade this coziness are with throws, blankets, and a few fresh plants. Play with layers and patterns, and don’t be afraid to add accessories like velvet throw pillows. The best fall decor is warm and welcoming, so keep that in mind as you shop.


4. Arrange Seasonal Floral Arrangements

Create floral arrangements with fall flowers like sunflowers, purple pansies, mums, and dahlias for a fresh pop of color. You can make just one or more and scatter the lovely arrangements throughout your home. 

If you’ve just moved to the area and you are looking to make friends, inviting moms and kids over for floral arranging is a fun way to bring neighbors together. If you’re looking for a way to involve the whole family, ask the children to pick up leaves, acorns, or pine cones outside that you can incorporate into your bouquet.
