Just a few beautiful arrangements of organic fall bits and pieces will make our home fall ready! I’m sharing my 10 fabulous fall elements to use in your home!
NUMBER ONE FALL HOME DECOR IDEA… WHITE PUMPKINS
There are a few quintessential fall elements that most of us use in our home. And the best fall home decor idea!
Pumpkins are a must!
White pumpkins are here to stay… so let’s embrace them and add them to our decor!
If you can’t find real white pumpkins use great fakes! Use them as supporting characters in vignette, fill a cloche with baby boos or make them the center of attention on a pedestal.
It really doesn’t matter how you use them. Just do!
Bittersweet is what I call “brambly fluff”.
It’s twiggy and untamed and can fill up lots of visual space.
Bittersweet grows wild in my area so I can find the real deal each year but because it is an invasive plant and illegal to grow in most areas, real bittersweet may be hard to find.
If that ‘s the case buy some great fakes! Just like pumpkins… just do it!

MUMS ARE GREAT FALL ELEMENTS
What is fall without mums?
I love these perfect, hardy, fall flowers!
Mums last weeks and add color and life to our decor! So, we need to be nice to them and give them a pretty container to bloom in and some supporting fall elements around them.
Deer shed their antler each year and grow new ones. They are beautiful and organic and fit into vignettes and decor bringing their fabulous shapes and ivory-like color and great texture!
I find lots and lots of deer sheds at barn sales, country markets, and vintage shops. Make sure to include at least one set of deer sheds in your fall vignettes this year!
Don’t forget to use deer sheds this time of year!
They add such a pretty, natural fall element to decor!
USE GOURDS IN FALL DECOR
We grew our own gourds for decades year and they are great for fall decorating. I love their bumpy surfaces, quirky shapes and colors and how they just look like fall to me!
Use them along with pumpkins in any arrangement!
Pinecones are fabulous filler for any fall decor! Use them as a base or as a great textural element!
They look so pretty gathered together en masse in a bowl or on a cake pedestal!
I have a huge bin of pinecones I have collected over time and I use them liberally during the fall season!
Hydrangeas are a flower that are such pleasers! They begin to bloom in early summer and keep going straight until fall.
Hydrangeas can be dried and used for the rest of the fall and winter! And the best thing about hydrangeas? They are GORGEOUS!
Make a wreath, create a beautiful bed of hydrangeas for a pumpkin, or use them in a vignette! They are amazing!
LEAVES ARE BEAUTIFUL FOR FALL DECOR
Don’t forget to bring a branch of colorful leaves into your home to celebrate fall! Put it into a great tall container! It should last about a week or so!
If you celebrate fall before the leaves begin to change, like me, then “fake it” till the real ones are ready!
