In New England, the leaves are rapidly changing. The hillsides are alive with the stunning red, yellow and orange colors of fall! At Annalee Headquarters in Meredith, New Hampshire, we have no doubt that autumn is here! It’s official—the kids are back to school, scarecrows are popping up, mums abound and fields are happily being harvested. It’s the perfect time of year to take a trip to your local orchard, sip some spiced cider and pick-your-own apples. It’s also a great time to decorate with a pumpkin or two. Are you ready for a festive fall?
AUTUMN INSPIRATIONS FROM ANNALEE
– 5 Simple Fall Decorating Ideas –
1. Little Touches Go a Long Way
You don’t have to spend hours creating masterpiece DIY designs to make your home cozy and festive for the season! A few little touches go a long way! At Annalee we are all about the power of the smile and a simple stand-alone design on a windowsill, counter, desk, mantle or even next to a bathroom sink. Sometimes adding a small design can do the trick and create a big effect for Fall or a festive holiday like Halloween and Thanksgiving.
2. Make an Entrance
If you are entertaining or just looking to come home to a warm greeting, you should always think about the elements surrounding the doorway or entrance way. Annalee’s Autumn designs make the perfect accoutrement to an autumn wreath or porch display! Check out a few of our favorite wreaths on Pinterest!
3. Focus on a Cozy Fireplace Mantle
Give your fireplace a makeover this fall and celebrate the autumn harvest! Don’t miss our popular apple-centric designs! Turn your mantle into a fall-inspired focal point with colorful leaf garlands, gourds, pumpkins, dried flowers and other seasonal accents.
4. Don’t Be Afraid of Color
Fall creates rich shades of orange, golden yellow, dark green, rust and brown. These wonderfully organic colors make lovely accents for your home. When you decorate this year, think about how to bring the enchanting and rustic hues of fall into your favorite rooms.
5. Set Your Table for the Season
Planning to host neighbors, family or friends for dinner? Whether it’s Thanksgiving or just an impromptu social soiree—the dining table is the perfect stage for seasonal decor! A centerpiece is a common staple—but you can also extend the festivities to individual table settings with some festive napkin rings, fall escort cards or simply a few smiling faces about the scene that will spread cheer, spark conversation and set the mood.
