Fall Decorating Ideas for a New England Home

Tis the season for all things having to do with gourds and beautifully colored fallen leaves! Fall in New England is one of the most beautiful times of the year and that crisp autumn air has us itching to decorate our homes with the best of what this season has to offer.

There are so many things going on in the fall months– back to school,  Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the return of football season (go Pats!) First, decide if you want to decorate just one time this season, or if you want to go all out and decorate for every occasion. If you are planning a Halloween party, you may want to hang spooky decorations for the month of October and bring out the cornucopia come November. If you’re a football family, you may want to get out the team decor for the whole season. When it comes to getting your New England home ready for fall, the possibilities are endless!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Leaves, leaves & more leaves! One of the best parts about fall in New England is the foliage on the trees. Our outdoor views are filled with bright yellow, orange, and green leaves, so why not add them to your indoor decor too? We love leaf wreaths for the front door or a leaf garland to adorn a front porch, indoor stairwell, or mantle.
  • Give us all the gourds! Pumpkins are a staple decoration this time of year. Real or fake, pumpkins of every color and size with a variety of squash can transform your stoop into a festive fall home.
  • Scarecrows! It may sound a little hokey, but nothing makes us smile more than when we pass by our neighbor’s home with a scarecrow affixed to their front lawn’s lantern.
  • Next level! Want to go all out? Throw a few hay bales, corn stalks and cornucopias into your decorating scheme as well.

Our favorite places to pick up Fall décor items are farmers’ markets, local farms, and craft stores. Give the team at Fini Concierge a call if you’d love to decorate but just don’t have the time. We’ll tell you about our Home Management Services and happily transform your home for the fall season!
