Fall Entertaining with the Autumnal Leaf Collection

Summer has glided into fall, and this graceful seasonal change has brought with it milder temperatures, walking weather, and the occasional cool breeze. You can even spy a sprinkling of warm colors in the midst of all those green leaves. You might not be ready for cozy autumn sweaters yet, but you can always look ahead to how you’ll be entertaining this fall. The beautiful Autumnal Leaf Collection features functional, coordinating pieces that reflect autumn’s changing hues.

How to Decorate with Fall Wreaths

With its harvest colors and inviting appearance, the fall wreath is surely a staple of autumn decorating. The door is most often its place of honor, but, good as it looks there, you might want to spice things up this season. That faithful fall wreath is surprisingly versatile and can look just as stunning in another area of the home. Let these ideas inspire you to decorate with fall wreaths in unexpected ways.

An adjustable Wreath Holder Stand allows you to display your favorite fall wreath on the floor or table top. Simply adjust this indoor accent to the desired height, and add your wreath to the hook at the top. Use this wreath stand all year long to create a wonderful seasonal display. The Pomegranate Fall Wreath is a marvelous choice for display on the stand. This harvest wreath features pine cones, fabric leaves, and pomegranates on a twig base.

Another wreath display option is as a decorative centerpiece on your fall table. Let its autumnal beauty shine alone, or create a more extravagant display by adding a candleholder and LED candles. The Oak Leaf Fall Wreath is shown here encircling the Maurelle Candleholder and the Color-Changing LED Flameless Candle Set.

If your fall wreath is embellished with pumpkins and features bright colors, you might consider making it part of your Halloween display. Simply hang it on the wall, place a couple pedestal tables beneath, and add your favorite Halloween decorations nearby. Here, the beautiful Pumpkin Grove Fall Wreath is shown near one of the Spooky Greetings Tabletop Accents and the LED Glass Pumpkin Accent.

Frightful Yet Fun Halloween Decor

Your doorbell rings on the spookiest of all nights. Its chime is a mini mystery. Will it be a cute little goblin with a sweet tooth? A group of holiday revelers ready for some merriment? Before these candy lovers and partygoers show up at your door in October, make sure your home is Halloween-ready.

Those drawn to the dark side of Fright Night will shroud their homes in eerie darkness. And those of a playful mindset will highlight the silliness of the occasion with their Halloween decor. But the creative decorator in you? Well, you might feel like combining the two Halloween decorating styles to stir up something frightful and fun. Those skeletons can rattle their bones about – but only if they’re festively attired, of course. And those jack-o’-lanterns can make all the spooky faces they desire – as long as they agree to twinkle and glow. These unique Halloween decorations have just enough whimsy and wit to take the edge off their scary side.

The skeletons on the Day of the Dead Table Runner and Pillows are all ready for your Halloween bash. They’re dressed in studded, orange party clothes and glittery hats. Mr. Bones’ girlfriend even has sparkly purple and green pompoms on her hat. Step a little closer for some Halloween chitchat, and you’ll notice that gems ring their eyes and arch across their eyebrows. Ruffled trim and orange pompoms also adorn each end of the table runner.

A skeleton, bat, and spiders have dropped by to add a creepy touch, but glitter keeps this Halloween decoration sparkly and fun. LED lights shine from the windows, so you don’t have anything to fear. Not too much, anyway.
