decorating for fall

Now that it’s September, it’s beginning to feel like fall – football season is here, the temperatures are cooler and leaves are starting to change. If you’ve been shopping lately, you have probably noticed the mass amounts of Halloween and fall décor filling store shelves.

Although the decorations are available, when is it OK to deck out your home for fall?

When is it time to start decorating for fall?

Fall officially begins on September 22, but depending on where you live, it might not feel like fall yet. While the outside might not reflect the season now, it’s not too early to start decorating for fall on the inside of your home. And transitioning from summer to fall decorations doesn’t have to be difficult.

How to transition from summer to fall decorations.

As summer is ending, look for simple changes you can make in your home to prepare for fall. Swap out your brightly colored décor for warmer colors that reflect fall. This easy change can instantly make your home feel more like fall and is the perfect way to transition from one season to the next. Once you’ve added fall colors to your home you’ll have a good starting point and can begin decorating with other seasonal items like pumpkins and other fall accents.

In short, when you start decorating for fall is up to you.

Whether you start the day after Labor Day, or you wait until it is officially fall, make sure you have fun with your décor! Want inspiration for fall decorating? Check out these decorations.
