I love autumn and all things fall. The beauty of fall decor is that it can stay up through Thanksgiving. By adding just a few autumnal accents to your home, you can bring the color and warmth of fall days into your home. There are many natural accents, such as gourds and acorns, that you can also incorporate into your decor without spending a lot of money. Plus you can make it a family activity by asking your kids to help you scout out natural elements for a pretty fall centerpiece.
Nashville decorator Paige Williams with Paige Williams Interior Design says it is easy to incorporate fall colors into your home. “My quick tip is to use an interesting vase you already have and fill with fall colors. I bought a few bags of split peas at the grocery store, brought in acorns from the yard and purchased mini pumpkins at Michaels.”

The oak tree and acorns are symbolic of fall. Why not incorporate the acorns your kids find in the yard into your fall decor? Mason jars also are perfect for displaying your fall treasures.
