Embrace the Season - Home Decorating Tips for Autumn

There are so many reasons to love autumn. Not only do the changing colours of the leaves and the refreshing, cool breeze add something truly magical to the natural surroundings, but it’s also the season for stylish fashion, lots of entertaining arts and crafts, mouth-watering meals and desserts, and, of course, Halloween! If you’re taking a break from playing your favourite online bingo and slot games and are keen to fully embrace the season, here are some enthralling home-decorating tips to keep you busy and inspired.

Decorate your dining table

Your dining or coffee table is a wonderful spot to start with when it comes to an autumn-themed home makeover. After all, it’s where you eat most of your meals, so it’s a lovely idea to spruce it up for the season. Invest in a new tablecloth featuring rich, autumn hues, like reds, oranges, and golds, and get creative with your centrepiece. You could craft a pretty wreath out of crunchy, colourful leaves and sticks sourced from your garden.

If this sounds a bit too intricate, another great idea is to place large, off-white candles (cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin-scented candles are wonderful) in glass jars, surrounding them with those freshly collected leaves.

If you’re someone who prefers a quirkier approach to the season, why not hollow out a pumpkin, paint it, and use it as a decorative vase for the table? You can also swap out your plain napkin rings for homemade rings made out of grapevines, adorned with red or orange blossoms.

Rest assured that all this is sure to go a long way towards impressing the guests at your next bingo night – possibly just as much as the hearty comfort food you choose to serve!

Decorate your outdoor space

While you might be tempted to focus the majority of your attention on decorating your home’s interior, don’t forget to put at least a little bit of effort into sprucing up your porch, veranda, yard, or outdoor space, too. After all, it’s the first aspect of your home noticed by both your guests and random passers-by!

Keep it simple by painting a pumpkin in a colour of your choice, adorning it with your house number in a large, decorative squiggle.

Alternatively, go the whole hog and get creative with haystacks, scarecrows, multiple stacked pumpkins, wreaths, and traditional Halloween décor. It’s up to you whether you keep it cute and creative, or go the scarier route!

Embellish your mantelpiece

Your mantelpiece is the perfect spot for autumn décor if you’re looking forward to welcoming the season with flair and enthusiasm without necessarily having to transform your entire home. The small ledge provides just enough space to make an impact!

Consider going shopping for lots of random autumn-inspired bric-a-brac and proudly displaying your finds.

If you have kids, why not take some time to experiment with a few exciting autumn and/or Halloween-themed arts and crafts, and use the mantelpiece as a platform to show off your masterpieces?

If you’d prefer to keep it simple and classy, it’s a great idea to create or buy a wooden beaded or leafy garland; finish it off with decorative chestnuts for maximum effect with minimal effort!

Give your lounge or bedroom a spruce-up

The secret to attaining that autumn aesthetic in the comfort rooms of your home (your lounge and bedroom) is to go for “cosy” in any and every way you can! Think large, chunky knitted blankets, fluffy, colourful cushions, thicker curtains in richer shades, and maybe some tartan flannel pyjamas.

Along with all this, you can also enhance the seasonal look and feel by changing up the art in your bedroom or perhaps swapping out your usual vase full of fresh flowers for a “dry” display filled with pinecones, mini pumpkins, red or orange flowers, and acorn pebbles.

Don’t forget about your kitchen/

While you’ll definitely want to add some autumn accents here and there inside your kitchen, why not make your focus whipping up some seasonal dishes too? The fragrances from your cooking will waft all the way through your home, really helping to bring it, and all the little updates you’ve made, to life.

Start by heading out to the shops to stock up on some aromatic “autumn-y” spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, cumin, and ginger. Next, do some research into the best recipes for the season.

Think slow-cooked pork, creamy pumpkin pasta, sticky toffee pudding, apple pie, pumpkin muffins, caramel blondies, cinnamon brownies, persimmon cake, cinnamon-dusted pancakes, fig pudding, crumbly nutmeg butter biscuits – the list goes on and on!
