Opulent Fall Decoration
By Daniella Baki, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint
The fall season comes with so many celebrations such as Halloween and Thanksgiving. Just as we enjoy delicious pumpkins in our soups and desserts, we can also use them to creatively decorate dinner tables and front porches.
A collection of pumpkins in different sizes placed at the entrance of your home will give you the ultimate feeling of Fall. You can mix and match green tones with the color palette of Autumn. Fresh plants picked from the garden, a few gourds in different sizes and colors and a bunch of dry leaves and twigs can be used to give warmth and earthy colors to your front porch.
When it’s pumpkin season, many stores around the city showcase the beautiful fruit in different shades of deep orange, green or even white. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to making an assortment of pumpkins. A common and easy to prepare decoration will need an assortment of orange pumpkins with a bunch of dried petals, wheat stems and sunflowers. To be able to duplicate such beautiful decorations, you can go to Ikea, Spinneys or Carrefour, where they have sections that are filled with Fall essentials and pumpkins in every shape, size and color.
With Halloween being around the corner, houses around the city start to dress up for this spooky celebration. People use their wildest imagination to come up with the scariest setup to freak out trick-or-treaters. Specialty stores offer many spooky decorations that you can use to make your home look like the ultimate haunted house in your community. Pumpkins are key for halloween decorations as they can be carved in various ways to look scary or funny. Halloween ultimately revolves around two basic things, carved pumpkins, skulls and skeletons. Combine these with shredded fabrics in black or beige and you will get that spooky feel.
For Thanksgiving, there are simple ways to decorate your center table. For example, you can add corn to a glass jar and mount it with a candle. You can also add plants in a pot topped with different colors of small sized pumpkins to create warmth on the dining table.
So get your imagination in full gear and let the Fall festivities and decorations begin.
