When should you start decorating for fall

When should you start decorating for Fall? The best time is in mid August. Start mid August to maximize the amount of time decorations are displayed. Décor can stay out till late October with no problems. Too early in August is not good because décor will not be in sync with the seasons.

Fall decorating in stages

I always start in stages to avoid confusion and being in sync with the seasons. At first I start with something small and simple. I add a decorative festive wreath. Then add small white pumpkins to the entry way. Another great idea is to place small pumpkins on the table or to transform your room by swapping out summer pillows for fall ones.

Where to start decorating

There are hundreds of ways to decorate your house for the fall. And the good news is that most of them are really simple and easy to do. Making your house look festive is easy when you stagger pumpkins, gourds, haystacks and or fall foliage across your front steps. You can even make an arrangement across your fireplace mantel. Adding pine cones and greenery gives the most bang for the buck. Depending on where you live you might be able to find everything you need in your yard. To keep the décor in line with the fall season choose a cream or cream colors along with a bright orange. These are fall colors and also go well with Halloween and Thanksgiving.

How to decorate your fireplace mantel. Start by making a quick rustic arrangement using fall leaves. Gather some colorful fall leaves and use a small with to twist them on to a rope. What you will end up with is a beautiful festive garland. The garland can then be attached to your fireplace mantel using adhesive plastic hooks or clear tape. Be sure to hide the hooks and or tape by placing them behind leaves. You are almost done.

Next when you are out and around look for fall colored candles. Votive candles in fall colors are excellent. Using some decorative rope or ribbon ties a few strand around your votive and place a leave in between the rope and you’re votive. Place these along your fireplace mantel. Now you have a beautiful festive fall décor for your fireplace. If you have all the supplies you can accomplish this in about thirty minutes or less. Plus most of the material you can get for free.

Decorating a small table or foyer space can be easy too. I like to take a small clay flower pot and place a small festive pant like a croton, kalanchoe, snakeroot, sweet alyssum or goldenrod. Add this to a small table or an area in your foyer. Add a few small pumpkins and scatter some leaves across the table. For contrasting colors and to make your arrangement more interesting you can add creamy colored gourds.

Decorating with mums

Mums in galvanized containers make a striking statement
And of course not to forget the most popular décor of all for the fall is mums. You cannot go wrong with adding the perfect late bloomer. Chrysanthemums are very hearty this time of year. Most people don’t realize they are both annuals and perennials at the same time. Today most are hybrids which are a cross between hundreds of species from overseas. It’s easy to set out a few mums on the front poach. They do very well in the full autumn sun. Just make sure you give them plenty of water. Check the soil every other day and if dry then give them a good soaking. One good trick when buying mums is to look for a plant that has more buds than open flowers. If you have to re-pot the plant it will be less stressful for the pant and the plan will last longer into the season.
