Fall is officially here and some of us (including myself) are just waiting for those cooler temperatures to arrive and really make it start to feel like fall. Yesterday I spent the afternoon cleaning and preparing to get this space turned over and ready for the new season. I know that when it is 85 degrees outside it is hard to even start to think about decorating for fall, but I promise those cooler temps are on the way and October is just a few days away. So that means it is time to start thinking about decorating your front door for fall. Whether you live in an apartment or house there are simple, budget friendly things you can do to get ready for the new season. From simply adding a wreath to a planter with flowers, below are some ways to bring a little bit of fall into your space.
Wreath – I’m a sucker for wreaths and no matter what type of door you have, I think they make a huge difference – they add a little bit of charm, character and happiness to your door. I remember my first apartment after college and it was the ugliest beat up black door, but when I simply added a door hanger and attached a wreath, it made quite the impact and definitely made me smile each time I came home. Some wreaths can get pricey, but thankfully there are SO many options out there that are budget friendly and will still give you a very classy and welcoming feeling.
Doormat – Because who doesn’t love walking up to a door and looking down at their feet to read a cute message!? I promise not only you will love this, but your guests will too. Switching up your doormat is a very inexpensive and fun way to add in the fall spirit. Whether it be a saying or a design, your feet will thank you!
Planter with fall flowers – You don’t need to have a green thumb to add this to option your space. I think mums are a plant that ANYONE can keep alive, they scream fall and come in a variety of color options. Just remember to water! 😉
Add pumpkins and gourds – You can NEVER, I mean NEVER have too make pumpkins. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! 🙂 Whether you decide to go the simple route and just decorate with pumpkins or if you decide to mix them in with your decor, know that there are so many fun and unique pumpkins out there that allow you to layer and have some fun with. This is also a great opportunity to explore and check out a local farmers market or pumpkin patch to find the perfect one(s) for your space!
