Get your dining room ready for your fall dinner parties (and Thanksgiving dinner!) with a few simple decorating ideas that are sure to put a fun, seasonal spin on mealtime.
Bring the Outside In
Add some beautiful texture to your dining room by incorporating natural elements. Feathery dried grass and vibrant fall foliage are tried-and-true favorites, but don’t be afraid to experiment with other natural touches. Mix things up by using something like seasonal fruit to add color to your tabletop instead of a standard go-to like flowers.
Choose Seasonal Colors
Whether the trees have just started turning or the last leaves are barely clinging to their branches, adding in nature’s spectacular colors goes a long way to creating a seasonal atmosphere. Simply choose decor that takes color cues from fall foliage, like mellow golds, brilliant scarlets, and coppery oranges. As an added bonus, red decor can easily transition into the holiday season.
Add a Warm Glow
Fall doesn’t just mean changing leaves and cooler temperatures; it also brings earlier sunsets and longer nights. Create a warm and cozy atmosphere after dark by adding a warm glow to your space with lamps in seasonal colors on a sideboard and plenty of candles (real or flameless) on the table.
Adding some autumn attitude to your dining room is easy: simply add some textural, nature-inspired decor, seasonal colors, and warm lighting for a look that celebrates the best of the season.
