Country fall decor tips for cozy places and festive spaces

We’re back today with some of our favorite country fall decor tips, and – spoiler alert – not all of them include ornamental gourds. (Although we do love us some ornamental gourds!) If you’re looking for ideas to make your home cozy and ‘harvesty’ (is that a word?) for the Fall, you’ve come to the right place!

Create a cozy sleeping space or reading nook. Bonus points for incorporating autumn shades like rust, gold, brown, orange and red.

  • Rugs to warm up those chilly floors. Our wool braided rugs are high quality, soft, and they are known to withstand the most brutal of New England winters…and they look good doing it!

Fun with Fall florals

Whether you’re into burlap, stars, or mixed berries, a floral wreath with fall tones can be the perfect accent for your front door or fireplace mantle.

DIY a harvesty centerpiece (there’s that word ‘harvesty’ again!)

Can we talk about florals some more? Because they make great centerpieces too. A berry taper candle ring in burgundy or cream, coupled with an ivory, burgundy or mustard primitive drip candle will look right at home next to your decorative gourds and faux maple leaves.

Other options:

Add fall shades to your kitchen

  • Dark accent colors like caramel, gold, rust, and orange. (Or if your kitchen already features a lot of dark shades, white pumpkins are all the rage!)
  • Fall kitchen accessories like potholders and dish towels

Create a comfy dining space

Consider adding some comfy cushions or chair pads to your dining space, and our Sawmill ceramic dinnerware coordinates nicely with many of our harvest table linens.

Don’t forget the front porch!

  • Chrysanthemums! Look for deals at your local farmer’s market or apple orchard. (Anderson Orchard in Mooresville, Indiana has big beautiful mums for about $10 less than than those you’ll find at the local grocery store.) Also: wheat, sunflowers, fountain grass! Throw in some aster and dianthus for a contrasting splash of red and purple.
  • Pallet signs. If you don’t have a cri-cut machine, we’ve got you covered.

Styling holiday florals

Good morning!
We’re back today with a handy guide to what the crafty people on Pinterest are doing with florals this holiday season! We’ve found some great new trends in holiday wreaths, centerpieces and flower arrangements that incorporate the best in-season styles.
Asymmetrical wreaths
These have been around for a while, but there are so many neat variations to this style!

Evergreens
Mix soft florals with the rougher textures of evergreens and pine cones. And there are so many varieties of evergreens!

Pumpkins arranged with bold fall florals
Scoop out a small pie pumpkin and fill it with bright mums or carnations! Orange looks good with anything! Or if you prefer cooler tones, use a white pumpkin with purple and cream-colored flowers.

Birch Bark
Winter centerpieces are all about birch bark. It’s got nice white tones and coordinates well with pine cone and evergreen arrangements and also contrasts nicely with softer winter florals like roses, amaryllis, carnations, poinsettias and orchids.

Fall fun on Pinterest

Hello!
There’s finally a nip in the air (edit: a short-lived one as it’s going to be back in the 80s this weekend!) and we’re getting excited for the first official day of fall (even though we broke out the decorative gourds on August 31).
Pinterest, as you know, is a great place to get inspiration for fall and harvest themes, and today we’re sharing five fun ways you can easily incorporate the season into your existing decor. Check out our Pinterest Fall/Thanksgiving board for more great ideas!
Fill your candle glass, lanterns and bowl fillers with autumny things like wheat, corn kernels, hazel nuts, acorns, berries…even candy corn!

Fill your mason jars with arrangements of fall leaves (real or fake!) and wrap them with burlap or red and gold ribbons.

Use that vintage scale to display nuts, berries, corn or fall floral arrangements.

Use your bottle box or utensil holder to arrange fall flowers like golden rods and chrysanthemums.


And of course, rusty buckets, watering cans and planters are great for showing off those gourds and fall flower arrangements.
We have so many bucketsMilk cans, too.


Use florals to liven up your candles, walls, tabletops and more. Pinterest has some really cool floral displays on ladders, pallets and window shutters!

Bonus tip: white pumpkins continue to be a popular decorative element this fall! And throwing in a splash of turquoise adds a lovely contrast to the warm autumn shades.
And we now have burlap ribbon spools and burlap letters for even more DIY fun!
