Accessorizing for autumn ...

Autumn has such a short lifespan between the end of summer and the start of Christmas decorating. I think it deserves some worthy recognition. So, let's start with some inspirational fall decorating ideas that will take us through the Thanksgiving holidays.

I like the idea of decorating the foyer with autumn vignettes. It's a perfect place to arrange displays of Indian corn and other seasonal fruits and vegetables.

This is so clever! Wrap some natural twine around a ball of string, add a fallen leaf and a bit of curled wire to a stem placed in the center of the string. Voila! It becomes a rustic accessory for fall.

Of course, if you're handy with a paint brush, you might like to try your hand at decorating real or artificial pumpkins. These from Lolly Jane are designed to express a more contemporary viewpoint. Love them!
