Easy Fall Decorating Updates (And a Giveaway!)

Easy Fall Decorating

Fall decorating is my favorite – it is just when we start nestling in for the cooler weather – but it is not as complicated as Christmas decorating can be.

post-divider  Fall Living Room Decorating

  Last week, I shared our home all decked out for fall.

One of the easiest rooms I pulled together was our living room.  I thought I would share with you today what the subtle changes were (along with some of my friends sharing their ideas too) and share a chance for you to win a gift certificate to do your own shopping.

Fall Living Room

The first thing I did was change out the accessories on the coffee table

Away went the shells, and in their place, candles holders, hydrangea, a pumpkin and some acorns.

Instead of white candles, I went with a pretty terra cotta color to bring in more warmth.

Decorating Ideas for fall

The container holding the flowers is actually a candle holder.  I love the size and the color.

Right now, it works perfectly to hold the hydrangea, but when I tire of them, I can simple add a candle on the inside.

It is the perfect size to use a yummy smelling jar candle, while still looking pretty.

Fall Living Room Table

A simple small candy dish, set inside a burlap candle holder provides the perfect spot for some golden acorns.

The metallic tones of the candle holder and the acorns also tie in with the pumpkins.

I love that the colors of them are perfect for the warmer tones of fall without going full “orange”, which really would not have worked in this space.

One of my favorite changes to make is to change out the pillows.

I must admit, I have a lot of throw pillows.  They seem to be that one thing I can’t resist when I find a good one at a great price.

If you are only going to make one change to a room – I think changing the pillows is always a safe bet.

If you struggle with storage locations, you can use Space Bags to get them tucked in closet corner.

But the one thing that pulls it all together  – is the wreath.

I have had two small mirrors on there for a long time – and I still love them. But, I love how the wreath changes the room.  I have used wreaths on interior and exterior doors and above my mantel – but this is the first time I have put it on a wall.  And I don’t think it will be my last.


Now our living room is ready for cooler weather and a blanket at the ready.  Maybe I will just have to take a little nap…

Fall Decorating

I would like to thank Kirkland’s for providing me a gift card to purchase these fun fall accents to update our living room.




I don’t have a Kirkland’s near me, so I shopped online.  These are the items I bought:

The metallic pumpkins are also from Kirkland’s, but they are no longer available online.  You may be able to find them in the stores still.

    Hey Laura, your room looks so great..!! I thought I was jumping the gun with the fall deco, but this crisp weather has got me in the mood! I did a white pumpkin farm table and just a few gourds around the house to get things going. Thanks for the heads up on Kirklands, looks like a great site to shop around!

  2. says

    I love decorating for fall too. It seems like the summer stuff stays out forever so it’s nice to change things up.

  3. says

    Your living room looks beautiful and the sweet things from Kirklands look perfect for your coffee table. I love the wreath. I have posted my fall decor blogpost today. Pop on over if you have time. Happy Fall to you! Blessings, Pamela

    Love so many things Kirkland has to offer. Really love the items you bought…especially the wheat candle holders.

    I love to shop at Kirkland’s. I have several pieces that I use for my everyday decorating. I just recently purchased a mirror and picture for an office I was decorating. Great selections and great prices!

  6. KellyinPA says

    What’s not to love? The grapevine and metallic pumpkins would be perfect in my home as would the fall themed wreaths and centerpieces. I share your love of fall decorating, maybe even over Christmas.

  7. Nancy Carr says

    What is not to love? I love the rooster cutting board and the canisters, the blue and white salad plates, the deer head, all the pumpkins and so much more.

  8. says

    Hey rock star! You had me at the wreath. :) Happy day to you and I am soooo full of joy to have done a little fall shopping with you!

    Happy day!

    Anything fall is on my mind right now. Pumpkins, acorns, candles are all wonderful. But I love the wheat bushel candle holders that you also used. Thanks for the chance.

  10. says

    I had never heard of Kirkland’s before today. I went over and checked out their site and I was blown away with all the lovely things I saw! Who can choose just one? Loved the distressed furniture I saw there though…the turquoise ones really spoke to me!!!

  11. Cindy A. says

    Thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway. The Salt & Pepper Skull Shakers and Black Spider Doormat are so cute! I would love to add them to my Halloween decor.

  12. Andrea says

    I’ve always loved this room, but perhaps my favourite ‘version’ of it, is when it’s decorated for fall. Simple and beautiful ans cozy 😉

  13. KellyinPA says


    This is my second comment (!) but wanted to say how truly lovely your home is. It looks so warm and welcoming, you obviously are gifted in this area, thanks for sharing your gift with all of us! :)

    Laura, what a wonderful and timely giveaway! I just spent about two hours in Kirkland’s last week and must have left my fingerprints on everything in the store. I want it all!

  15. Teddee Grace says

    Those glass pumpkins and gourds are gorgeous and there are some pine cone bookends I’d love to have.

  21. Debra C says

    Love your room! My daughter needs a lamp, so many I like I think I would let her choose!

  22. Stephanie O says

    I love the Mason Jar Lanterns, set of three. I could use them inside or outside. Fill them with candy corn for fall or cranberries for winter wit candles. I would order a few sets.

  23. Jen Y says

    I love Kirklands & I especially love all the fall things they have right now – the large acorns are very sweet & I love the hand painted fall tree candle holder.

  24. Sharon P says

    There are too many beautiful things to choose from! If I have to pick one thing it would be the chevron owl pillow.
    It’s adorable, and we can never have too many pillows, can we?
