Today, we’re sharing The Busy Girl’s Guide to Decorating an Entry for Fall!
This year was the first year I really struggled to come up with a Fall color palette I loved. I kept looking for something we’ve never done before and I just couldn’t find it.
Truthfully, we’ve been working to turn our outdoor shed into an office and it’s occupied the majority of my time.
Fall is my favorite season of the entire year though.
And while there was no outside pressure to make it fabulous, I feel like if there were ever a year to try and make things special, it’s definitely this year.
As I was trying to come up with fresh Fall decorating ideas it got me thinking if my schedule has been crazy lately maybe your schedule has gotten a little crazy too.
Whatever your season of life, we’ve got you covered with quick and easy budget-friendly decorating tips. These simple ideas can be implemented without spending a lot of extra time or money.
Here’s a look at The Busy Girl’s Guide to Decorating an Entry for Fall…
Choose a Consistent Color Palette
Chose a color palette for the entry based on the colors that are already found around your home.
This will provide a cohesive feel consistent with the way you actually live.
We have a lot of grays, whites, and camels all around the house so I chose a Fall color palette of deep burgundy, dusty rose, and emerald green this year.
Layer in Texture
If you have a designated place to put on your shoes like a bench, chair, or stool, add a bit of texture with pillows or place a favorite fabric over your bench pad.
I found the fawn fabric at Hobby Lobby (here’s a less expensive antelope print fabric too) and I made the vintage monogrammed no-sew pillows in an afternoon. They were super easy and we use them all over the house.
Bringing in bits of nature from your yard, your local farmers market, or adding your favorite faux flowers is a great way to add color and seasonal elements while you’re decorating an entry for Fall.
I have terrible allergies and while my preference will always be fresh flowers, I’ve learned to live with pretty faux flowers too. These are from the Bloom Room Collection at Joann’s.
Succulents, potted mums, lilies, dried hydrangeas, or even branches with Fall colored leaves are all an easy and budget-friendly way to dress up your entry space.
Keep in mind, if you decide to use branches, leaves, or flowers from your yard make sure they’ve been well cleaned and are free from pests.
Create a Simple Pumpkin Display
Finally, break out the pumpkins! Take the time to shop around and find pumpkins you love in multiple shapes and sizes when you’re decorating an entry for Fall.
Most every big box or craft supply store have shipments of faux pumpkins fully stocked right now. Some are already on sale at 40-60% off too!
If you prefer real pumpkins check your local grocery store, farmer’s market, or pumpkin patch.
Just make sure to protect each pumpkin with a layer of polyurethane if you plan to decorate with them as they won’t last as long as faux pumpkins.
In addition, if you have curious littles or pets make sure any pumpkins and Fall decor are out of their reach as safety should be a top priority.

Keep in mind, decorating an entry for Fall is a simple way to welcome the season into your home.
Especially, if you have a small porch area or you don’t have a porch at all.
Entries are also relatively inexpensive spaces to decorate and if you’re on a budget it’s the perfect area to dress up for Fall.

I know this year has been like nothing we ever expected. So, take the time to put out a few things that feel festive. Then spend the rest of Fall celebrating all the season has to offer!
PS: If you ever wonder why all the posts from the entry are just a tad bit wonky, it’s because there is a ginormous column directly in the middle of the shot I have to work around ?
That will be another thing I’m embracing this year, perfectly imperfect shots he he!
