Fall is officially here. Now is the time to gather together all your senses by creating the cozy environment you look forward to all year. That means bringing bits and pieces of autumn goodness to your rooms. Autumn smells, cozy vibes, and natural elements. You can create a fall inspired room by simply refreshing your space, without completely redecorating. Use what you have, bring in a few new items, add natural elements…and do it all on a budget!

An Autumn Table

Mixing old and new is one of the easiest ways to achieve a look that belongs entirely to you. It’s especially fun to mix things up for a fresh seasonal table setting. For the table featured above, I used one of my treasured vintage pitchers for the flowers, and layered it over a round tray I had from last year, and a new table runner from Walmart. I adore the table runner because it’s neutral, has incredible texture from the weave and fringe, and it’s generously sized.

I kept the table setting simple by using napkins I already had, and mason jars for glasses. Another super easy way to incorporate a natural element is to tuck fresh herb stems into your napkin bundle. Just use twine to bundle the napkin, add the herb stems, and tie a little bow. I added an unexpected color with the stoneware dishes…and I love the soft vibe they bring to the table.

A simple, beautifully set fall table will create a memorable and charming atmosphere. It takes minimal effort, and the end result is always worth it. By using items you already have, and adding a few budget-friendly new finds, a lovely autumn table is within reach for everyone!

Autumn Smells

There are many scents that are quintessentially fall, and many ways to add these scents to your kitchen. Opt for scented candles with fragrances like cranberry apple, firewood & spice, or one of my favorites, lemon balm and cedar. These smells make your kitchen feel like the coziest spot ever, filled with the lingering scents of autumn.

Countertop Ideas

If, like me, you have limited countertop space, it’s hard to sacrifice that space for decorative items. One way you can add seasonal style to your counters without taking up much room is to lean a piece of artwork against your backsplash. I framed a free printable of fall artwork in a simple wood frame, added a yummy scented candle, and a tiny vintage pitcher of fresh flowers. This little vignette takes up hardly any space, but it adds that cozy fall feeling I was going for.

Refreshing With Natural Elements

Walmart has everything you need to add fall inspired natural elements to your decor, especially in the kitchen. They offer beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers, and the perfect selection of decorative pumpkins and gourds. The simple task of placing festive pumpkins and gourds in a wooden bowl absolutely makes you feel cozy and calm. It’s beautiful to look at, and if you give your gourds a bath, any arrangement you make will last the entire season. (And when the flowers fade, the bowl of pumpkins will become my centerpiece!)

Seasonal Art

I love seasonal art…and if it’s budget-friendly, that’s even better. Look for lightweight canvas prints (like the cute pumpkin above) that you can hang with Command strips, so when it’s time to move on to the next season, your wall won’t be damaged.

    1. The purple flowers are Speedwell. They came in the bouquet along with the mums. I have not seen them in faux, but if I do, I will include it in one of my Wednesday posts. Thank you!
