WARMTH for the AUTUMN HOME


 
Our nesting urges kick in when the seasons change. Mine seems to be strongest in the fall. Knowing the days are shorter to me means I have less time to accomplish the things I have to do, let alone the things I "want" to do. 







 
























When I do seasonal decorating it usually consists of going to my storage closet and pulling out ready made items like wreaths, garlands, and swags in seasonal materials. I don't have time to do a lot of crafts. Additionally, it is easier to do crafts when you have a designated room which I don't.







 


























Your local farmers market and grocery stores have some of the best seasonal decorations by way of fruits and vegetables. In fall it's all about gourds, squash and pumpkins.























I love all Martha Stewart's crafts and seasonal decor. Her team creates tasteful, timeless decorations that don't overpower your interior design.
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The best seasonal decorations are made from natural materials like the wreaths, swags, and stems seen here. You don't have to redecorate your home every season but leave room on your walls and tables for things that signal in our traditional festivities.
