Decorating Ideas With Fall Leaves

I love fall colors, the oranges, yellows, and reds of fall leaves are my favorites. Nature does a great job of decorating herself in the fall, we should take a page from her book when we’re decorating for fall parties.

1. Set up a shadow box with leaves, and some gourds or pumpkins.

I love colors and textures in this fall leaf wreath from Williams-Sonoma, featuring orange safflower, yarrow and exotic dried lotus pods.

Most of the leaves in these fall decorations aren’t real, but real fall leaves are easy to decorate with. Give them a press with the iron to flatten them out and preserve them longer, or press them between the pages of a book for a few days before you add them to your decorations.
