Seasonal Decor

Colorful leaves, crisp air, tartan throws and cups of warm apple cider… autumn is such a warm season to decorate for. And when it comes to adding seasonal touches- simple and sweet is my favorite.

Today I am sharing a few finds from HomeGoods and how I am using them in my home for autumn.

I always think of warm tones – like delicious copper mingling with baby boo pumpkins for a burst of seasonal charm.

#1. Copper mugs

Copper mugs are always on repeat in decor over here when they aren’t being used for sipping a favorite beverage. You can find packs of 4 of these at HomeGoods- and use them for flowers and even just to add that warm welcoming tone to a table setting or mantel.


#2. Blue Glasses 

Whether using mason jars or simply blue glasses- a pop of that fresh blue is an unexpected delight and perfect with vintage style hydrangeas and little pumpkins.

#3. Creamy Whites

Seriously simple and seriously charming- sometimes something like a bowl full of apples is perfect for adding a touch of autumn to a table. I chose a jello mold for this – but any large chunky bowl will do and it doesn’t have to be antique to have that antique style we love.

#4. A Wood Crate

Something else that is so simple is a wood crate filled with seasonal greens and pumpkins.  This crate is vintage and was a HomeGoods find that was absolutely perfect for filling with heirloom pumpkins and eucalyptus on the coffee table.


#5. A seasonal throw  

I am a huge fan of charming tartan plaid and wood throws for autumn.  So warm for wrapping up with but also for adding just a touch of seasonal color. I couldn’t resist this blue throw when I found it- and it is perfect just waiting to be enjoyed on the Adirondack chairs.

#6. Velvet pumpkins

Always a fan of natural touches like acorns, leaves and wheat- I also like to mix in a bit of whimsy. Velvet pumpkins are perfect for adding to nearly any spot for a touch of autumn- but I especially love to use them on the fireplace mantel with old books and dried blooms to create a display.

#7. A crate of pumpkins 

Perfect for greeting guests- a beach bike display with pumpkins in a crate.  I found this white crate at HomeGoods and knew it was the perfect one for placing on the back of my beach bike. Filled with pumpkins and  set in the driveway or in the yard- it is perfect for a warm autumn greeting for friends.

When it comes to autumn decor- simple is best in my opinion. And there are so many wonderful autumn pieces at HomeGoods- it is easy to create a charming display in every room.
