With the local lockdowns and the weather getting colder, this autumn is all about gathering together as a family, staying warm indoors and getting cosy during the dark nights.
Decorating our home for autumn is a new tradition for us. Over the summer we grew our own pumpkins and as the weather has turned cooler we have been out with buckets collecting leaves, pine cones and conkers from local woodlands. With that in mind, I needed a way of displaying everything.
The sideboard in the living room is decorated with a basic garland from Ebay. We have added our own leaves, faux eucalyptus and miniature plastic pumpkins – then wrapped around some battery powered fairy lights to make it twinkle on an evening! This garland would be a lovely addition to any room and would be perfect for a cosy autumnal fireplace.
The Table Decorations
The dining table would make a perfect centre piece for a wedding or dinner party, decorated with a mixture of real and faux pumpkins displayed along a burlap runner.
The bigger glass pumpkins are from Homesense (FYI the Homesense Halloween decor sells out quickly each year, so you need to be fast!) and the real ones we grew ourselves! It’s so lovely to see them displayed so beautifully.
Surrounding the pumpkins is all of our leaves, conkers and pine cones. They should dry out in the house over the coming months and will be stored away to be used again next year.
Candles bring a romantic and cosy vibe with their warm soft light, especially at this time of year when the nights are drawing in. The candle sticks on the sideboard were from a charity shop and the ones on the table are part of our Christmas decorations that we bought last year from Wilkos Christmas range.
I think this is definitely a new tradition for our family!
