Fall 2019 Home Decorating Ideas

Posted on

We’re entering into the 2019 holiday season, which is the best time of year for decorating! Adding your own personal taste to seasonal decor is what makes it truly special. We’re here to bring you some delightful ideas for making your home truly festive.

Fall Decorated Table

Fall/Halloween

There’s just something about fall—the crisp feeling of the air, the warm colors of autumn—that sends us right into a decorating dream. We love the balance of neutrals with pops of orange in this table we styled!

Stop into our store in Briarcliff Manor and we can help you create a similar look!

If you’re looking to get some florals and foliage integrated into your design, fall wreaths are one of our favorite seasonal décor items.

You can also create a warm and inviting look using a decorative garland. Add your favorite lanterns, rustic fall décor items and seasonal flowers to really make a grand statement!

Thanksgiving

If you love the look that fresh greenery creates, greet your guests with a colorful display on an entry table or sideboard. Having a few small plants can go a long way to make a room feel bright and airy!

But never forget: Thanksgiving is all about food, friends and family—and a beautiful table sets the tone for a delicious meal. Impress your guests with a divine design to go with their dinner! Here’s a picture from one of our Festive Stroll events to give you some inspiration:

And speaking of the Festive Stroll, our 2019 event is coming soon! Holbrook Cottage will host attendees with shopping and champagne after a stroll through the stunning historic homes of Philipse Manor. Tickets are available for November 22nd and November 23rd. You can also purchase tickets for a special luncheon on November 22nd. If you’re looking for decorating ideas, the Festive Stroll is filled with beautiful decor for you to enjoy!

We hope you love these seasonal decorating ideas as much as we do. If you would like help creating similar looks for your home, we’ll be happy to assist you. Visit our store or contact us to get started on your designs today.
