Bold fall decorations made from natural materials

Autumn has brought with it a new palette of colors and a new assortment of inspiring elements. They’re an invitation for us to redecorate out homes and to make them embrace the beauty of the season. There are lots of ideas in this category but those that really allow us to embrace the autumn are the ones made from natural materials.Let’s take a look at a few such decorations.

Decorating the table.

To make your table look beautiful and stylish this fall, you should first start with the color palette. It needs to include colors such as orange, yellow, red and brown. So first make a selection of dishes that respond to these requests.

If you can’t find any in these colors you can opt for neutrals and use colorful decorations. Use colorful napkins, make original centerpieces for the table using natural materials, place candles on the table and in the dining room and decorate the chairs as well.

Decorating the plates.

Special attention needs to be given to the plates. Simply choosing the right colors is not enough. To make the table look really special and beautiful you also need to use napkins and maybe even a few subtle decorations chosen in the spirit of the fall. Even something as simple as a beautiful leaf can be enough.

Making the centerpieces.

To make a centerpiece for the table using natural materials you can opt for elements such as a beautiful pumpkin that you can either carve and fill with all sorts of other natural elements or that you can leave as such as use in a more elaborate composition. You can also use apples, flowers and leaves that you can combine to obtain a beautiful ornament for the table.

Autumn bouquets as accent pieces.

And since fall is also the season when lots of beautiful flowers bloom and show their lovely colors, you can also bring them inside and use them to make a beautiful bouquet for your home. You can use multiple types of flowers and combine them for a rich palette of colors or you can focus on a single type and make it the star if your bouquet.

Making candle decorations.

This fall you can use small pumpkins or apples to make some beautiful candles. You just need to remove the center of the apple or pumpkin and some of the flesh as well if you decide to use tea candles and then to insert the candles. The result will be a series of charming decorations that capture the spirit of the season in its entire beauty.

Hanging decorations.

All sorts of natural elements can be sued to make hanging decorations such as wreaths, garlands or chandelier copies. For example, you can use apples, small pumpkins,twigs and branches, flowers, leaves, candles, fruits and anything else that says autumn and that has beautiful colors.

Decorating the chairs.

The table is very important but so are the chairs. So if you want to create a memorable dining experience, you should also focus on making the chairs feel like a part of the autumn-themed décor as well. It’s simple to do that. You can use any of the elements you used for the rest of the decorations. You can also use a chair as an accent piece and cover it with autumn goodies.
