When setting your Thanksgiving table, don't forget to add fall touches to the other main elements in your dining room. A few organic additions to the chandelier, buffet, hutch or cupboard will pull the seasonal look together.
Adorned with metallic pumpkins, pinecones and deer antlers, this living room is ready for fall yet still looks sophisticated. Tree trunk tables spray painted white add a rustic touch while complementing the room’s elegant style.
Doors are not the only places for hanging wreaths. Get creative with your fall decorating by layering wreaths onto other wall-mounted elements. Here, a festive wreath on top of a generously sized mirror greets homeowners at their entryway.
Acorns are a popular material used in Fall decorating. Put an artistic spin on acorns by using them to cover a foam cone. Attach each acorn with hot glue and fill the spaces between them with dark peat moss.
Neutrals are a popular choice for fall decorating, especially oatmeal tones that blend perfectly with oranges, deep greens and browns. Bring warm texture and rich neutrals to your fall spread with table runners or tablecloths made from thick Belgian linen.
Hosting a party is a good excuse to shop your house to look for pieces that can stand in to serve food, hold napkins and flatware, or to even use as fun design elements. Don't worry about everything matching or being made for fall decorating. Look for elements that speak to the season and reference your style. What works together might surprise you!

Create your own giant acorns for extra large fall decorations this season. To create the body of your acorn you will need to find some wooden eggs shapes, or create your own with balloons and paper mache. Once you have the body you can decorate it by painting it, wrapping it with twine, or gilding it with gold leaf or glitter. Create your acorn cap by hot gluing natural elements around the top half of your acorn shape. We used acorn caps and layers of pinecone scales to create ours.
An all-white dining room enables you to go in any direction. Here, a fall-themed decorating scheme that celebrates nature anchors the table and sideboard. Jewel-toned flowers and leaves, elevated pumpkins, apples, large plants plus colorful artwork and some painted chairs add life and interest.
This fall, try decorating with a play on the traditional cornucopia. Instead of the usual horn shape, pull out a woven basket and fill it with white pumpkins and gourds. Gild your favorite fall elements, like pine cones and leaves, with gold acrylic paint and add them to the arrangement. You can make them solid gold by dipping them, or give them more depth by brushing the gold around the edges. Your basket of plenty will be overflowing with beauty.
