How to Incorporate Fall Florals Into Your Decor
Incorporating favorite flowers and stems into your fall decor is an easy way to take your decorating to the next level for fall season. This year I opted to go with a teal and burgundy color palette to utilize my original home decor while adding in a bit of fall color.
Here are a few tips on creating a simple floral arrangement for fall.
Accent Decor That is Already on Display
Instead of changing out all of your home decor, give your current decorations an easy upgrade by incorporating seasonal items with your every day ones. This eliminates extra mess and makes for an easier transition into holidays. Not to mention, this is definitely the best way to save on budget.
For example, this dough bowl and plants are a favorite centerpiece display in my dining room. For easy fall centerpiece ideas, I added pumpkins in place of the boxwood balls and the moss. It's an easy substitution that still leaves us with a beautiful arrangement.
Change Out Your Greenery to Seasonal Florals
Change out your current selection of greenery to florals with a seasonal element or it won't really adhere to fall design style. I changed out the center pitcher on my table and replaced the faux greenery with grasses, but another selection of branches would work just as well.
The cotton stems add more texture and variety. And the stems and grasses tie in nicely with the natural elements of the wood.

Accent Fall Decor With a Color
Although most of my decor is reusable, each year I like to add something new. A favorite way to do this is by choosing a neutral color scheme and then accenting with another color. If the budget doesn't allow it, painting anything and everything is always a great option.
Last year I used all my pumpkins, cotton stems and some greenery in my fall decorating. This year I was able to find burgundy sunflowers and peonies on a killer deal, so I incorporated a burgundy theme with my neutral base and teal color. They were the perfect choice, changing my own arrangements just enough without costing me a fortune!
Fall Floral Arrangements in Teal and Burgundy
Let's go more in depth about how to add a decor color into your neutral base, starting with our cozy fall family room.
A great way to decorate for fall is by focusing on neutral colors first, like starting with these cathedral windows and flower stems in simple vases. The wooden tray is also something that I keep as a focal point on the mantel and then incorporate additional seasonal decor to spruce it up. Then, you will want to add your color accents.
The burgundy flowers make for a beautiful floral arrangement combined with the natural taupes and browns. I simply added in these faux autumn flowers to the tray, tucking them in along the existing greenery. These warms colors are the perfect combination for the natural beauty of fall.
Adding a beautiful fall bouquet to this basket only adds the fall ambiance.

Fall Table Centerpiece
For the dining table, I utilized the same principles with the centerpiece as demonstrated with the mantel. Use the majority of your every day decor, but pull out a small amount and replace it with color accents. I added teal colors and fall pumpkins to fill in the holes.
