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?
I’m delighted to be working with my sponsor Tree Classics on their fall celebration, “A Toast to Autumn”. They’ve provided a group of bloggers with a wreath and garland each, and challenged us to incorporate them into our fall decor.
I knew this was going to be fun!
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.
The garland I set 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 the 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 if this autumn challenge was decorating the beautiful wreath. I chose the Classic Fraser Fir in the 32” size and went to work adding flowers and ribbon that embodied my fall color story. The floral bunches are simply tucked in, even though I expected 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 the 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.
