Spot decorating for fall

Decorating for the holidays is one of my favorite things to do. Today I want to show you how to spot decorate areas around your home for fall including your fireplace mantel, a table top, kitchen, porch and a few other decorating ideas and shopping tips.

Let’s start with the fireplace mantel. When decorating use what I call the Z method. Left top – Cluster, Right top – Single, Left bottom – Single and Right bottom – cluster. You want to alternate a cluster of items with a single item.

When you spot decorate remember odd numbers, my favorite is decorating in 3’s.

Another seasonal decorating idea is to add photos to match. Switch out by adding in a fall pumpkin patch photo in your regular photo frames, they can be current or even from previous years. The photo also does not have to be of a person, it can be anything seasonal including a landscape type.

Enjoy decorating your home and try not to get overwhelmed, each year you can continue to add to your collections. Speaking of adding to your collection, right now is a great time to get fall decorations for a great deal.

Heather’s Hint: If you want to avoid the crowds. Start buying your fall items now and while everyone else is standing in line and fighting over the last matching pumpkin candle on black Friday you can drop in bringing only your receipt and get a price adjustment for the sale price!

DISCLAIMER!! Make sure you ask each and every store location or merchant about their price adjustment policy. Get it in writing so that you can take it with you.

Don’t forget, adding season specific scents to your home ambiance makes it so welcoming to family and friends. My current favorite is Yankee Candle’s Harvest.

Heather’s Hint: Add a lantern with a candle at the front door to greet guests with a festive feel and smell before they even walk through your door.
