Embrace the bounty of beautiful fall colors with a seasonal tablescape. The star of this table is a stunning arrangement of late-blooming flowers mixed with bold red-orange leaves. Small gourds and pumpkins are also randomly placed around the table, creating a laid-back vibe perfect for fall entertaining.


Display freshly fallen leaves. Position single leaves, either pressed or fresh, in small glass vases, and place them on various surfaces around the house. (We used old lab beakers look for them at antiques stores.) The best thing about this sweet and simple display is that when the leaves start to crumble and brown, you can easily replace them.

 DIY Tip: To press leaves, place them between layers of newspaper and under a heavy stack of books. Let the leaves dry for a couple of days. Then, to enhance their color, iron the leaves between pieces of waxed paper, using a pressing cloth to keep wax off the iron. Pressed leaves also can be purchased at local crafts stores.


Candles are the perfect way to create a soft glow that warms up a cool autumn evening. Hot-glue Indian corn to the outside of a pillar candle for a colorful accent. As you burn the candle, make sure the flame doesn't get too close to the corn.


Artfully arrange fall items on a bookshelf or in an open cabinet. Put platters on their sides, fill vases with colorful flowers, and pile bowls with mini gourds to create a diverse display. Try heaping small items, such as acorns, bright berries, and sweet gum seedpods, into glass bowls. Adhere a dried fern frond to a platter with spray adhesive to embellish a simple plate.


Dress up your furniture with cozy items in seasonal colors. Here, a wicker chair is draped with a warm orange throw, and a maple leaf pillow sits comfortably on top. Perk up a plain pillow by enlarging a leaf using a copier to make a pattern. Cut the pattern out of wool felt and attach it to the pillow cover using iron-on fusible backing. Blanket-stitch around the edges.


Fresh apples are a stylish and seasonal way to anchor tablecloths and napkins. Simply use an awl to pierce a channel through two apples, and thread twine through the bottom of one and the top of the other. Leave enough twine to hang over the edge of the table 6-8 inches. Tie a twig at each end to keep the apples from sliding off.


Greet your guests with a "welcome" pumpkin. Use paint to write your message on a pumpkin, and set it near the entrance to your home.


Take a display of mini pumpkin gourds to the next level by adding height. Bowls, cake plates, and candlesticks are perfect for creating an interesting display. Paint the pumpkins metallic silver for a dramatic effect.


Easily transform an ordinary table runner into playful fall decor using nothing more than felt and hot glue. Purchase felt in autumn-inspired colors from your local crafts store. Trace different sizes of leaves and twigs onto the felt, cut them out, and place the pieces in a pleasing pattern onto the table runner. Adhere the twigs onto the surface first using a hot glue gun to ensure correct placement of the leaves. Then glue down each leaf onto the top of one of the tiny twigs. The result is a festive table runner perfectly suited to fall entertaining.


Even the simplest of objects, when displayed on a larger scale, can have a stunning affect. Here, a tall cylindrical vase is filled to the top with basic white pumpkins and is perched atop a dining room buffet for an eye-catching display.


Bring a touch of the great outdoors inside with this adorable acorn pillow. Simply purchase a solid-color pillow in the fabric and color of your choice and a large acorn iron-on. Place the acorn in the center of the pillow, follow the directions included with the iron on transfer, and you have a festive and fun throw pillow that blends perfectly with other fall decor.


Festive tablescapes set the scene for fall entertaining. Give your typical tableaux a twist by incorporating a non-fall color. Here, the bright sky blue plate breaks up the rich reds and vibrant oranges typically used in fall decorating. Try pairing plum or bordeaux hues with golden yellows or sage or olive greens with chocolate browns.


Transform your everyday bookshelf into an autumnal display with a few simple tweaks. First, to create a consistent and graphic look, cover books with festive paper we love these tree and floral-inspired prints. Then incorporate natural elements and accessories in fall hues.


To create a simple and sweet fall centerpiece, look no further than your own backyard. To re-create this look, simply gather fallen twigs or snip a few off of a nearby tree and place them in an oversize wire basket. Amp up the arrangement by incorporating a few store bought branches decked out in faux fall berries. A large basket of apples and a random variety of gourds add texture and rich autumnal colors.
