FAQs for Fall Decorating
When should I start decorating for autumn?
The start of September is the time to start thinking about fall decorating. While some may choose to wait until October (and some start in August), there are a number of things you can do to get ready for autumn.
One way is to begin by switching out your pillows and throws. Replace light colors with richer hues like oranges, reds and yellows. You can also add pumpkins, leaves and other autumn-themed decorations around your home.
If you want to take it a step further, consider doing some DIY projects to create your own fall decor. There are many easy projects that can be completed in just a few hours, such as making a wreath or banner from leaves or creating a centerpiece using pumpkins and gourds. By starting early, you can allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy the seasonal decorations throughout the fall months.
