Set a warm, welcoming table this fall with these fun and easy decorating & entertaining ideas.
Fall Decorating & Entertaining Idea #1: Pumpkin Place Cards
Pumpkins add a great harvest time feel to your fall table. Tie place cards to the stems of mini pumpkins, and your guests will appreciate the personal touch. Simply write guests’ names on little rectangles of card stock, use a hole puncher to create a hole at one end, thread a pretty piece of ribbon through the hole, and tie in a bow around the stem of the mini pumpkin. Let guests take theirs home as favors!
Fall Decorating & Entertaining Idea #2: Mini Cornucopias
These mini cornucopia snacks are an adorable take on the icon of the harvest season. Fill store-bought waffle cones with goodies such as yogurt raisins, roasted corn nuts, candied pecans and goldfish. (Add Reese’s pieces and candy corn for a sweeter version!) Tie a ribbon or raffia bow around each cone and display. Set out as decorations, edible favors or party snacks!
Fall Decorating & Entertaining Idea #3: Pine Cone Décor
Pile an assortment of pine cones and gold spray-painted acorns into a temp-tations® bowl and display on a mantle or sideboard, along with seasonal pillar candles and smaller votive candles. It’s an easy decorative idea that adds wonderful warmth.
Fall Decorating & Entertaining Idea #4: Apple Votive Candles
Apples are so apropos of the season, and this simple idea turns them into vessels for beautiful candlelight. All you need to do is score and cut out the tops of several apples and pop in little tea lights! Set them on a pretty temp-tations plate or platter, light the candles, and you’ve got instant beauty. And don’t you just love how the candle wax melts and drips down the sides of the apples? So pretty.
Fall Decorating & Entertaining Idea #5: Easy Fall Centerpiece
Need a last minute centerpiece idea that comes together in no time? Create a beautiful display with green and brown pears, crab apples and fall leaves (you can use artificial or natural – if you’re lucky enough to have pretty fall foliage in your yard), and let a gorgeous bowl showcase the assortment. Simple and stunning.
