Fall Fabulosity - Five ideas to freshen up your home

Real Estate Agent with Hasson Company, Realtors

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
~Edwin Way Teale

Autumn Decorating Ideas …. Continued:

1. For a fragrant treat, fill a ceramic bowl or a wood or wicker basket with oranges, lemons,pine-cones, nuts, and pieces of evergreen. Place the container just inside the front door for a special welcome home.

2. Decorate a wreath for your front door with clusters of berries, ornamental grasses, and other fall finds. Purchase a wreath form at a local crafts store, then simply attach the berries and grasses with wire or hot glue.

3. Lead trick-or-treater’s to your door or dinner guests to the back patio with country luminaries made with old glass jars. Put a bit of sand in the jar and set a small candle in the sand. Line the sidewalk with the luminaries or even hang them from trees with wire.  If you plan ahead, you can also order battery operated tea-light candles which are perfect for projects like this.  Battery operated tea-light candles are also safe to use in paper bag projects.

4. Make an autumn garland for your mantle with colorful apples. Use an awl or knitting needle to pierce through the apples from side to side. Pull twine through the hole and knot it to hold the apple in place. Spice up the display by alternating apples with gourds, walnuts, or leaves.

5. Accent a door or wall with a swag of Indian corn. Use twine to connect the ears, knotting the twine after adding each ear. Tuck in pressed maple leaves for even more color. Then loop the twine at the top to hang.

Now that I have a little one decorating has become a HUGE focus for me during the holidays.  It's a little tricky in Naples Florida since it feels like summer when it's Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas but at least now it looks like that time of year in my house! :)  Great tips! Can't wait to do the #1...now where can I find evergreen ;)
