Fall is one of the most fun seasons to decorate because autumn colors are so vibrant and warm. While decorating your kitchen at the beginning of each new season can seem like a chore, it doesn’t have to be. The trick is to incorporate a few new seasonal accessories and décor that pair well with things you already have. Here are five easy ways to incorporate fall colors in your kitchen. Be sure to check out TheRTAStore’s fall Pinterest board for more decorating inspiration!
Bring in natural elements
Autumn is one of the most colorful seasons because of the changing leaves and vibrant produce. Bring fall beauty into your kitchen with sprigs of fall leaves, gourds, and apples. Fill a decorative wooden bowl with different varieties of apples and gourds for an easy (and edible!) countertop or table decoration. Cut off the tops and scrape out the insides of pumpkins and use them as vessels for candles and fresh flowers. Or leave pumpkins intact and line the center of the kitchen table with them for a simple decoration.
Change out kitchen linens
New kitchen linens are another easy way to incorporate fall colors into your kitchen. Go for dinner napkins in red, orange, yellow, or deep green hues to add a pop of color to place settings. The table runner or tablecloth is another great way to bring in autumn colors without a lot of fuss. You can even try placemats in a fun pattern, like plaid!
Add color to the kitchen table
Besides changing out table linens, there are other ways to decorate your kitchen table for the new season. Plain white dishes are so easy to dress up for fall because they go with everything! Make white plates pop by pairing them with colorful chargers underneath. Buy a set of salad plates in a deep red or vibrant orange (or both!) and layer them between the dinner plate and soup bowl to make things more interesting.
Make it smell like fall
Sometimes you want your kitchen to smell like a pumpkin pie just came out of the oven—without all the work. Seasonal candles not only bring color to the kitchen, but also add mouth-watering scents, like pumpkin spice and apple cider, that make your kitchen smell cozy and inviting. Or you can take things to the next level by making your own potpourri!
Use pantry ingredients
Raid your pantry for simple and inexpensive fall decorations. Dried kidney beans, green lentils, and yellow popcorn kernels make a colorful filling for a glass vase when poured in alternating layers (find this fun idea here). Or go the sweet route and fill glass hurricane jars with candy corn or candy pumpkins. Stick a candle in for added ambiance. Cinnamon sticks are another pantry ingredient that’s easy to decorate with and smells fabulous!
