Yes- it's sill boiling hot in much of the country, but there's just something about the month of August that makes us start to dream of fall. The kids are heading back to school, the local Walmart is full of pumpkins and scary costumes and we're all just sooo over summer...
Fall decorating is really pretty easy. You'll find an abundance of natural elements that provide an instant autumn ambiance. Look no further than the produce section of your local grocery store- squash, berries and of course pumpkins are a great place to start. Add a few pinecones, sunflowers, Indian maize and mums to complete your shopping trip. Scatter these around the house for an economical and festive autumn update.
One easy place to add a dash of fall color is the dining table. This time of year you'll find a nice selection of autumn-inspired table linens in every price range. Two favorites that we carry are the Black Sunflower Tablelcloth (shown above), and the lovely Antoinette Floral Tablecloth (below). Both of these are high quality cotton tablecloths with plenty of fall color. These gorgeous designs can take you right into the Thanksgiving holiday.
If you prefer a more subtle backdrop for your dining table, consider the natural burlap look. Burlap gives a neutral but rustic background that really makes lighter and brighter accents pop. Check out this rugged but refined table setting featuring burlap with an rustic shot of lavender.
Do you like the look of burlap? You can easily pick up a couple of yards of natural burlap at your local craft store, or go with a ready-made burlap textile. Burlap is everywhere these days. We carry several different burlap items, including tablecloths, placemats, runners, window treatments and bedding accessories. Checkout our entire Burlap Collection.
Last but not least- fall is the perfect opportunity to add a little rustic style to your bedroom. We sell more patchwork quilts in the fall than any other time of year.
