Are you looking for some easy ways to bring fall into your kitchen? You will love these simple decorating ideas for autumn!
Fall has arrived and I am doing my happy dance! While I love all the seasons, autumn is definitely my favorite. The days are getting shorter and a tad cooler. I know the chilly nights (that are perfect for snuggling under a quilt or two) are just around the corner. Soon the trees will be showing off their glorious fall colors!
Living in the desert during autumn can be a wee bit challenging especially when everyone else around the country is experiencing trees turning vibrant orange, red and yellow. Yes, some of our trees do change colors but it may be November or even December before they do. How do I overcome this challenge? By bringing fall into the house, including the kitchen!
My kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in our home. I enjoy adding simple and inexpensive touches to it to celebrate which season we are in. One of the best decorating tips I have ever received is to shop your home. Don’t be afraid to bring in a quilt or a basket from another room. Let your creative juices flow.
Shopping at your local thrift stores is a great way to snap up treasures without breaking your wallet. I recently purchased a package of 50 maple leaves for $1 at our local dollar store. I thought it would be cute to attach them on magnets for the refrigerator and sprinkle some around my kitchen herb garden window. Regardless of what part of the country you live in and your budget, it’s easy to bring fall into your kitchen with these simple ideas.
6 Ways to Bring Fall Into Your Kitchen
1. Fill a canning jar with delicious candy corn. Yep, Brach’s candy corn does not contain gluten. However, it is made in facility and on equipment that processes wheat so there is a high probability of cross-contamination.

2. Use vintage dish towels with fall motifs.
3. Use a pretty quilt as a tablecloth.
4. Change out every day dishes to ones with the colors of autumn. Thrift stores and yard sales are a great places to find them.
5. Fill a vase or canning jar with fall flowers in orange, yellow, purple and red. Cut flowers that are perfect for autumn include: dahlias, sunflowers, zinnias, aster, goldenrod, Russian sage, and chrysanthemums. Another cute idea is to fill the bottom of a vase with acorns and dried lentils. Baskets, pumpkins and gourds make adorable containers!
6. One of the easiest ways to bring fall into your kitchen is by baking! Create sweet homemade memories by filling your cookie jar with gluten-free goodies for fall. Your home will smell amazing from the aroma of cakes, pies and breads baking.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ~ George Eliot
