Fall Decor Ideas for the Kitchen
Fall is here, and with it the need for fall decor ideas. Crisp air and warmly colored leaves are the tell-tale signs of autumn and its wonderful holiday cheers.
Instead of buying cheap fall decorations and wasting your money, why not make your home a haven of authentic cheer by creating your own? Autumn is the season of harvest, bringing family and friends together to celebrate their gratitude for each other and the sustenance they share between them. So it follows that the home and its fall decorations should aim for warmth and an authenticity that is based on genuine love and appreciation.
Without further ado, here are five kitchen fall decor ideas that will help you put the “u” back in autumn.
A seasonal harvest basket full of family favorites
There is no better invitation to a kitchen than an edible food arrangement. Make a basket of your favorite fall fruits and place it front and center on your kitchen counter. This basket doesn’t necessarily have to be all fruit; include your favorite nuts, cheeses, and any other festive morsel you can think of. The more hands-on the better, and if you can, include fruits and vegetables from your own fruit trees or garden. If you do go picking your own fruits, consider a farmhouse kitchen sink. Not only will it’s voluminous basin comfortably hold a whole bushel of apples, but its rustic roots make every day feel like a bountiful harvest!
Fall foliage from a favorite forest (or your own backyard!)
While you are out picking fruits, take a moment every once in a while to admire the autumn scenery. Nature is full of nuance and finds many ways to express itself. This shifting scenery offers many gifts that can bring an authentic fall spirit to your own home. Maybe a small branch with leaves that have shifted into their autumn shades. Or a twig of handsome little berries. These relics of nature can then be placed tastefully around the kitchen to bring the spirit of the changing seasons into your own home.`
Give thanks with a gratitude board
This is another great tone-setter and does wonders for getting people into the holiday spirit. The idea is to put a have family and guests write something they are grateful for on the board. As the season progresses, it can act as a wonderful reminder not just of all the things that we appreciate, but also all of the people you hold most dear. Best of all, this is another example of how personal you can make your autumn celebration. Whether you decide to hang it from the fridge or prop it up on the counter, be sure to decorate it with your own personal touches.
Your very own fall centerpiece
Creating a fall centerpiece can be as simple as a vase filled with your favorite autumn flowers. All ideas are welcome, as long as they express your personal style. A visit to the craft store and a stroll through your own backyard will give you all the supplies you need to make a holiday reef.
Bake the family favorites
This is one of my favorite fall decor ideas. A homemade, freshly baked pie left to cool on the counter can personalize your kitchen space like nothing else. The sight and smell of a delicious pie made from a family favorite recipe will liven up your kitchen. If counter space is limited, consider a wall-mounted faucet to free up more space for activities and decorations!
