The change in weather brings chilly temperatures; why not bring new warmth to your apartment! One way to do this is by decorating your home with autumn colors. Rich shades of reds, yellows, oranges, browns and greens will add a cheery and cozy atmosphere to your space. Below are additional ways to welcome your guests in style this season:
A beautiful autumn wreath is a great way to greet your guests as they enter your apartment. You could purchase one or create one of your own using a mixture of colorful leaves and berries. Regardless, choose one that reflects your style!
During this season pumpkins will be all over the place, as it doubles as a symbol for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Make sure you get maximum visual impact in your apartment on both occasions. You can use a variety of sizes and place them all over your house or have a collection placed in the front foyer. However you choose to use them, they are a MUST for decorating your home this fall!
When you or a guest arrives in your home, you want it to be warm and inviting. Using fragrant, colorful candles of different shapes and sizes, will help you attain the friendly environment you want while also adding an extra flare for decoration. (Please make sure you don’t leave burning candles unattended).
Calling all Cooks
If the atmosphere inside and outside your home is changing, so should your menu! The fall is a great time to break out the seasonal recipes (old or new) and bring your family and guests together. You can even go the extra mile and make the food decorative as well; such as Mini Pumpkin Cakes, or Pumpkin Casseroles, making your feast truly festive for autumn!
The piece de résistance to your autumn décor is the centerpiece of your table. Whether its flowers in a gorgeous vase, apples in a basket surrounded by leaves or a candle opera, having a marvelous centerpiece is essential for the final touch for your home.
