Fall decorating with leaves
Fall Decorating made easy. Simply add leaves. You can buy faux leaves or wait for the real ones to Fall on your lawn.

leaf wreath with starfish
You only need one single starfish to beachify a Fall Wreath. Seen at French Country Cottage.

coastal dried floral design
This dried floral design from Outer Banks Trading Group fits right into the Fall decorating theme. I'd love to see this idea done with a driftwood piece.

Then, a superb fabric pumpkin that smells of lavender! Rosemary calls her creations Sea Lavender Pumpkins, using hand dyed silk velvet in shades of the sea along with silk ribbons and lace, filling them with dried lavender buds. And this one has a driftwood stem too.

A beautiful Fall Cloche.

decorating pumpkin with wave pattern
Decorating a Pumpkin in a wave pattern with upholstery tacks. No carving or painting. Make a wave stencil out of kraft paper, attach it to the pumpkin with pins, trace the design around the entire pumpkin, then fill the lines with basic black upholstery tacks. This would look awesome on a white pumpkin too!

Fall grapevine wreath
I think Grapevine Wreaths are the best wreaths to use throughout the year and switch out decor for different seasons. You simply attach things with thin wire. For Fall decorating, arrange leaves, then tuck in a few shells. From Beachy Weaths.

Fall mantel
And lastly, thoughts on Fall decorating from designer Jennifer from Gracious Spaces who posted this on her Facebook page:

How do you introduce the fall season into a beachy room? That question has been on my mind as fall approaches. My kitchen and den are easily changed with the seasons but my living room is filled with whites, blues, and browns along with beachy decor. I decided to make a few changes to the mantle only and keep everything else with the same.
If you struggle with the same question then consider using silver, gold, burlap, pinecones, acorns, faux fruit, or earthy natural tones as accents. You don't have to decorate with bright orange & red if those colors don't work with your decor. No one will send the decorating police after you (well, probably not). I added a couple silver pumpkins (40% off at Michaels - about $3.50 total), a little burlap, & an old white berry wreath that I added some orange berries to from last year. I weaved these items into my beachy creamware display for a little fall touch.
