In this post: A great way to make use of your holiday decor is to rework it into a fall wreath and garland to add seasonal flavor to an autumn celebration.⇒
Are you one of those people who takes out the holiday decor the day after Thanksgiving?
Have you ever packed away the fall wreath just in time to take out one for Christmas?
Did you ever wonder why you don’t just use the same one?
While there are lots of beautiful fall wreaths out there, if you’re short on storage space or prefer to buy only one, you can use a relatively simple holiday wreath without lots of baubles, and dress it up for the season at hand.
If it has lights just keep them off. Pinecones can stay but keep everything else pretty simple. Now you can add what you like! Do the same with garlands and you can start styling your rooms.
For my family room, I decided to set a seasonal table on the coffee table by the fireplace, to fully appreciate the beauty of the wreath set up on the mantel.
I chose colors that adhered to what has become my signature fall style, warm fall tones that are lightened for subtlety and infused with a bit of blush and rose for a feminine touch.
I set a garland on the bar counter between the kitchen and den, and tucked in bits of fall greenery, including leaves and berries in the same muted fall hues.
The pine cones come as part of my garland and for the holiday season I’ll also use the lights that are laced into the branches.
The cozy table setting in our family room is perfect for fall Sundays when friends or family come by.
But of course my favorite part of such an autumn challenge is decorating the beautiful wreath.
I chose a 32” fir wreath and went to work adding flowers and ribbon that embodied my fall color story. The floral bunches are simply tucked in, even though I planned to have to wire them on. The wreath is so lush and full, that it was easy enough to just slip them in.
I love mixing patterns in my table settings and the rich colors in the wreath were strong enough to sit comfortably with the plates that I chose, a botanical pumpkin salad plate set against a cheetah print dinner plate.
The mantel is peppered with velvet pumpkins in similar colors, but the adorned wreath really takes center stage.
Pine cones and golden branches came as part of my wreath and work so well with the fall bits I added.
I kept the table centerpiece really simple, to avoid clashing with the florals in the wreath, so I went with simple dried wheat stalks, which bring out the lovely glow of the gilded goblets.
The warmth of this room feels like the perfect reflection of the warm feeling that the autumn season brings.
