There is no season quite like fall. The air is crisp, the flowers start to fade, the foliage turns and the leaves start to fall. Oh and give me everything with a little pumpkin spice.
I started thinking about my favorite fall things like fall plantings, decorating, entertaining, pumpkins and blooms.
So today, I’m sharing 17 simple fall home and garden ideas that include my favorite fall gardening tips, decor, DIYs, and more.

My Favorite Fall Garden Tips and Tricks
Since the temperature is still pretty hot here, it’s not quite time to start fall plantings yet. Could I start planting stuff? Sure! But it would be a lot more work to keep them going. So I’ll hold off for another week or two.
While I’m waiting to get started, here are my favorite fall garden tips and ideas.
Garden mums are gorgeous flowers but can be a little fussy. Amirite? They never seem to last long and we either toss or replace them shortly after buying them. In order to achieve success with them, we need to change the way we think about them.
With only a few weeks left of summer, there are things we can do to prepare the garden for gorgeous fall plantings. It’s also a great time to stand back and reflect on the gardening season to consider changes you want o make for the following season.
Once fall arrives, I get a little lazy with watering. Do you do that too? I’ve got a little trick to do a little less maintenance as we head into cooler fall temps.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m not a huge fan of garden mums. It doesn’t mean I won’t buy them, but I’d rather focus on other plants that do A LOT more in the garden.
Although we can divide and transplant successfully in both spring and fall, I do a majority of it in the fall. Follow these simple steps to increasing your plant stock for free.
Foliage is just as important as the flowers when adding fall color in the garden. Follow these simple tips to get more brilliant autumn foliage and interest in your gardens.
Patience is a virtue. No truer words have ever been spoken when it comes to gardening. Sometimes we need patience for good things to happen.
While the best time to plant is in spring or fall, I prefer to do a majority of my plantings in the fall. There is a way to do it so you can do less work AND spend less money. And who doesn’t want that?
My Favorite Simple Fall Decorating and Table Setting Ideas
Now that we are getting back into a routine, I’m almost ready to start decorating for fall. I even went as far as to take the bins down from the attic. I opened and thought to myself, “it’s too early.” So I put the bin back upstairs.
Because it’s still feeling a bit like summer, I’m going to start getting the house ready for fall decorating instead.
When I start decorating for fall, I seek inspiration from the garden and run with a color palette that is garden-inspired. Oftentimes, it’s found in new plantings I add to the beds.
Since it’s a little too hot here to start fall plantings yet, I’m not sure how I’m decorating yet. But I LOVED my rust-colored palette from last year.
I’m a HUUUUGE fan of centerpieces and love to make them with either faux florals, real plants or both. To save money on florals, I think ahead to how I can use the same centerpiece through the seasons without changing the whole thing.
Are you Team Fall or Team Christmas? Can I be both? I entertain the family on Thanksgiving so I prefer to keep a lot of my fall decor out. Last year, I found a way to decorate for both and the result is amazing!
My Favorite Ways to Set a Fall Table
I entertained quite a bit last fall. From dinners with friends to celebrating birthdays and holidays with family, we did a lot of celebrating.
While we might be scaled back a bit from our celebrations this year, it’s still fun to set a pretty table and make a meal special for our loved ones.
Here are some of my favorite ways to set a fall table.
I am NOT a fan of using folding tables when I host family gatherings. The tables are all different heights, widths and lengths. They wobble. And it never looks quite right.
