Fall Decor & Pumpkins, The Right Way

We know all too well holiday decor can get overboard real quick. Everything in moderation, right?  Don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here’s a guide to adding just the right amount of spice … and everything nice.

For starters, you can transition a space by swapping out a few items, making small tweaks and adding some accessories spot on for the season. Here is a great slideshow from Domino Magazine which shows how to welcome the Fall air into your space thru additions of warm metallics like copper, swapping wall art, even painting an accent wall.



NOW, LETS TALK ABOUT PUMPKINS. Like its holiday cheerful cousin, the christmas tree, pumpkins can get cheesy fast! Here’s your guide of how to do pumpkins past October 31st– why put them away with your Halloween costumes?!

First up: Bring them inside! Make a vignette on the floor, on a table, even on your mantle to add some Fall flare. Talk about a show stopping Thanksgiving dinner center piece!

Color: pay attention to the color clusters your pumpkin arrangements are making. Try to curate it like you would decorate a space in your home.

A big trend this year is muted pastels.

And (my personal favorite) all white.

There are down right brilliant DIY pumpkin ideas out there!  A quick Google, Pinterest or Instagram search will pay off big, but here are some of my favorites! Some fun and wacky, some great for the whole family and some so wildly intricate!

And last but certainly not least, GOLD.


So you see it can be done… Tasteful and personal Fall decor that doesn’t send you running from Hobby Lobby accessory mania! Have a wonderful season from us at Finishing Effects!
