Continuing with the theme of simple fall decorating, I’m sharing some of the fall stems I added around the house this week, plus 30 more of my favorites from stores I love. Swapping out my summer greenery for more fall-inspired stems like maple leaves, dried grasses, and wheat only took me a few minutes to do and instantly made the house feel warm and cozy. I typically look for stems with lots of texture in shades of brown, cream, and deep purple/burgundy. Those colors are the “Liz” version of traditional orange, yellow and red for this beautiful season. 😊
A few weeks ago I shared the pretty fall pillows and cozy throw blankets I added to the living room – read more about those here – but filling the house with vases of rich, earthy fall colors and foliage was just what these spaces needed to really make it feel like fall.
Side note: I caved this week and turned my heat on. I was sitting at my computer in sweats, socks, and slippers with a blanket and still freezing… it was time. 😂
I added two new fall stems to my collection this year:
– some faux deep burgundy baby’s breath I found on Amazon – super affordable, under $20 for 6 stems!
– and dried queen anne’s lace – a little more expensive, but I love the minimal simplicity of these curly dried stems
Here’s a tip for you:
Look for stems that are dark brown, black, or neutral for fall – avoid anything with bright green stems and leaves! Think about what you see out in nature this time of year… all the abundant green summer foliage is starting to go to sleep for the winter, and you’re left with sparse bare branches and no green in sight until spring. That’s what you want when you’re looking for faux fall stems to decorate with!
Okay, one more tip:
Speaking of nature, don’t forget to go outside and look around your yard for things you can bring inside to display in bowls or vases. I have a hydrangea bush in my front landscaping that I want to go steal a bloom or two from!
In case you don’t find anything you can use for free outside in your yard, here are more fall stems and foliage I’m loving this year!
