This morning, we did a live segment on Fox Channel 2 news in Denver with easy fall home decor and entertaining ideas! One of the overall details we shared is to add non-traditional fall colors to your table and home decor. We chose a vibrant teal accent linen to really make our fall decor “pop”. Shades of blue and green are perfect colors to accent the traditional fall color palettes.
Here are a few of the fun ideas we shared on the news:
Simple table centerpiece – Use a wine bottle and small tin can (from soup or a canned vegetable), cover the labels with fall-inspired scrapbook paper, glue together with glue dots or double-sided tape. Then add real or faux flowers along with a pillar candle wrapped with jute or twine and you have an easy centerpiece for a dinner party, girl’s night or just a fun way to decorate your dining room table.
Office organizer – Use a larger tin can and wrap fall-inspired scrapbook paper around the can for a simple way to store pens, pencils or kid’s markers.
Inside-out caramel apples – Cut off the top of an apple and hollow out the center. Fill it with caramel syrup and dip apple slices in the caramel. This is fantastic for a party or just as a fun afternoon snack for the kiddos. You can also use slices of apples to accent hot apple cider or a hot tea before serving to your guests.
Home decor or large centerpiece – Purchase glass vases at the craft store or even at your local dollar store. We used larger cylinder vases but you could use smaller vases or square vases as well. Fill up the vases with leaves, pinecones, acorns and pumpkins. Add wood letters (available at your local craft store) and you have a gorgeous and inexpensive centerpiece. Our vases spelled out “thanks” but you could easily do “Halloween”, “Thanksgiving” or your last name.
