There are many ways to incorporate these items in and out of our home. We can have candle holders in the house or on the patio for the scent's of fall. Try putting flowering plants in pots or planters on the patio or the side of walkways for adding color. You can also cut the flowers and bring them in the house and display them in vases for adding color and aroma to any room. Finding different color leaves and arranging them in a basket would look nice as a centerpiece on the dining room table. The best way to arrange the leaves would be by color and size like you do for flowers. Another idea for the basket would be to use different types, sizes and colors of gourds arranged in the basket with some leaves for accent. If you have fir trees nearby you may be able to find some pine cones to use in your ideas.
Outside, there are many ways to celebrate the autumn. If you have front steps, you may want to place pumpkins, gourds, straw and the like on them, and you can even make a scarecrow to sit on your porch. When trees in your neighborhood shed orange and golden leaves, pick them up and add them to your outside collection of fall decorations. If you are a gardener, buy a collection of mums to spread out amongst the front yard. Mums come in many pretty colors and are usually easy to keep if you just water them every day. They bring much beauty to your landscape.
It's the little things. Lampshades and picture frame mats are often overlooked when updating for the season, but changing them is an easy and effective way to change a room. Whether it's shades on your overhead lighting fixture or the lampshades in your family room, add a new, colorful shade to create a different feeling in the room. If you picture frame mats are white/cream consider adding a mat with color to add a pop to your pictures. Use the same color on all mats to unify your photos.
