We’re sharing Fall Decorating in the Breakfast Nook Today!
As we fully embrace our Fall Monthly Bucket List Ideas and upcoming travel plans, it’s been fun to add fall touches around the house.
I know this time of year can be a bit hectic.
Especially, since we’re all getting back into the swing of things now that school is back in session and Labor Day has passed.
On one hand, you want a warm and welcoming fall home.
On the other, you might be doing well to get dinner on the table and homework finished.
Maybe you’re an empty nester and you’re wondering if you even need to decorate anymore.
Perhaps you’re busy traveling with work and you’re wondering if it’s worth it to even break out the pumpkins this year.
No matter how you’re feeling this season, you can throw out the rules and expectations and decorate as much or as little as you want.
Here’s a look at how we’ll be enjoying fall decorating in the breakfast nook this season…
Make it Easy by Choosing a Fall Decorating Theme, Color, or Flower:
The easiest way to start fall decorating in the breakfast nook, or any room really is to pick a theme, color, or flower.
This includes items you want to highlight like cotton, gourds, berry branches, pears, figs, apples, acorns, pumpkins, roses, mums, or dried grasses.
Next, decide what you want your color scheme to be.
We chose a pale dusty pink because it’s one of my favorite colors. And despite using it throughout the year, I’m just not quite ready to let it go yet 😉
Create a Simple Place Setting:
Once you have your color palette set, gather the items you need for each place setting.
We usually use a charger, a dinner plate, and a salad plate or bowl.
But you can use whatever you love and have on hand.
Layering linens is a really easy and inexpensive way to celebrate fall decorating in the breakfast nook because they add both color and texture to any place setting.
Add a Festive Centerpiece:
After you’ve taken care of each place setting, you’ll know how much room you have for centerpieces.
If you’re short on time or space consider filling a box, dough bowl, vase, or container with seasonal items.
You can pick up a mix of pumpkins and gourds at your local craft supply store or flowers from the market.
Decorate Your Coffee Bar:
Finally, if you’re breakfast nook is close to your kitchen or coffee bar, remember to decorate that space too.
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy at all!
Just a few stems or floral picks in a treasured vase, basket, or container using the same color scheme as your fall decorating in the breakfast nook table will do.
As I shared earlier, I completely understand schedules get hectic, and seasonal decorating can feel like a luxury.
There are no rules when it comes to being festive though.
So, create a space that makes you happy from minimal to extravagant, or somewhere in between, and live with what you love!
