Make your house smell like fall. The warm and spicy smell of pumpkin can really make your space feel cozy. I keep a cabinet of different candles handy all year round, but did buy a new pumpkin spice one this year! Homegoods has a great selection for a good price, and is where I usually stock up on my candles.
I also added the pumpkins in unexpected locations around the house, like the bathroom!
We also decorated with large white pumpkins inside and outside. I just couldn’t bring myself to put my summery Lilly napkins away, so I just put the most fall-like print on top and rolled with the punch of color over on our sideboard.
Decorate with pieces you already have. Don’t let your most prized cookware, dishes, or entertaining pieces stay cooped up. I used my Le Creuset braiser to hold pumpkins and gourds as a centerpiece in our dining room. The white plates are our everyday dishware from Pottery Barn and the “Eat” plates were a purchase three years ago from Joss & Main. Using pieces you already have on hand helps keep costs for seasonal decorating to a minimum.
