Fall is officially upon us, and with the change of season comes the planning and excitement of gatherings and food with friends and family. As you start to prepare for upcoming celebrations, we’ve put together five simple and beautiful ways for nature and environment lovers to bring the season into your space.
Go Green with Your Centerpiece
When most people think of Fall they think of reds, oranges, and yellows. For a refreshing twist on the standard Fall palette, a bright green centerpiece made of mosses, succulents, pebbles, pine cones, and green apples fresh from the orchard will stand out on your table.

Natural Fabrics & Neutral Colors
When talking about creating a refreshing space, the season we typically think of is Spring. However, Fall decorating can offer the same feeling when using neutral colors and natural fabrics. Swap out heavy, dark napkins for light linen ones. Use a simple natural thread table runner instead of a full tablecloth to let the natural texture of your table add to the ambiance. A shift to neutral tones and natural fabrics offers a new look on Fall.

If you love natural light and having an eco-friendly home, beeswax candles are the perfect way to bring both a natural and responsible choice to any room. Clean burning, beautiful smelling, and from a renewable resource – what’s not to love? We found these fall-toned tapers were a perfect way to add some color to a neutral, nature focused palette.
Let Your Sideboard Shine
As we start to think about gathering around the table for meals together, centerpieces get a lot of the focus in Fall decorating. If you want to bring the season indoors, but want to keep your table clear for all the great food you’re going to put on it, then use a sideboard to create a Fall themed focal point. With pumpkins, gourds, pine cones, greens, and candles, you can transform an often overlooked space into a Fall scene that will surround your friends with the season.
Add Some Life in your Living Space
Building on the growing “bring nature indoors” trend, another way to extend outdoor life into your inside space is with a terrarium. Simple and beautiful, terrariums are a great way to welcome a microcosm of the great outdoors to your home. Whether you use it as a centerpiece on your dining table or a conversation starter for your occasional table, a terrarium creates a burst of life in your living space throughout the season.
Here’s a quick how-to for making your own.
As the end of the growing season, Fall is a perfect time to bring the outdoors in. By making our homes more nature-focused with light, natural, and green touches, we can extend the life of the outdoors into our homes. This is a great way to celebrate the end of the year – and the new one around the corner! – with a refreshing Fall ambiance that feels as lovely as it looks.
