Stress free fall decorating ideas || Worthing Court

Don’t you agree that decorating your home should be enjoyable instead of stressful and frustrating?  It doesn’t matter if you’re working on the overall look for a room or your entire home or just trying to decorate for an upcoming season or holiday – I believe it should be fun!  We all have enough drama and frustration in our lives, so let me give you a few no stress ideas to make your fall decorating a joy instead of a chore.

KEEP CENTERPIECES SIMPLE

This fall centerpiece, on the dining room table in my former home, is one of my most favorite ever!  It may look complicated, but it isn’t.  Fill a container, any container, full to overflowing with colored pumpkins (real or faux) then tuck in a few candles and sprigs of greenery (again, real or faux) into the empty spaces.

Better yet, put together a table centerpiece in all of 5 minutes!  I recently put this DIY centerpiece together for late summer, but it will probably wind up staying through fall.  You can look at it and tell how easy and simple it is.  Bread boards make a great base for a centerpiece, then all you need are just a few things arranged on top of it.

VIGNETTES

I created this elegant looking (but easy!) fall vignette in the foyer of my former home, by plopping a yellow mum into a container, adding raffia (or you could use Spanish Moss) around the base of the plant, and placing a mix of pumpkins and gourds on a tray beside the mum.  Finish the vignette off by adding one more fall’ish item from your crafting stash.

Three candlesticks + two pumpkins + one candle = instant fall. Y’all it doesn’t much easier or stress free than this!  They don’t even have to match, but using various height candlesticks adds more visual interest.

You’re bound to have a basket of some sort lying around.  I simply arranged sticks from my backyard, a throw and some fake pumpkins to create this cozy fall display.  And here’s a secret – the bottom of the basket is stuffed with old sheets to fill it up.  You can’t see them though, because they’re covered by the pumpkins piled on top.

OUTDOORS

You don’t have to make an elaborate fall wreath for your door.  Grab a hanging basket and fill it with artificial autumn foliage bushes.  The retailers continue to sell more and more realistic looking faux plants and combining them all into one bush sure does make decorating much easier.

Use a hanging basket filled with faux foliage bushes instead of a wreath for your door.

Try something different with your outdoor containers besides filling them with traditional mums.  These planters were soooo unbelievably quick and easy to create and I received many compliments on them.  Everyone loves something unexpected!

Do you get stressed out and frustrated when you decorate?  I admit that sometimes I put so much pressure on myself, that I’m easily frustrated if something doesn’t turn out just right the first time around.  Note to self: Relax – it’s only decorating.

    1. Hi Nancy. If you’re in the market for medium to large fake pumpkins, I’ve found the best prices by watching for sales at my local craft stores. If you’re only looking for some small ones, the dollar stores usually carry them this time of year.

  7. You have such an eye for the detail and placing everything just so! Beautiful accessories and the way you use them is a gift!
