Incorporating Vintage in your Fall Decor
As the hot summer months begin to fade, one of our favorite seasons begins! The colors of fall inspire and remind us of home, family and celebrating. Adding vintage to your fall decor can be easy and inexpensive.
- Keep the color palette simple.
When decorating a table scape, incorporate metallics. Grandma’s flatware is the perfect addition to the neutral decor. Mix the metal with different textures in the same color family to add warmth and a little sparkle!

2. Use Vintage textiles to bring in fall colors.
Pillows and throws are easy and inexpensive to switch out seasonally. Vintage pillows are easy to find at thrift stores and vintage markets and a great way to bring in the colors of fall. Look for ones with tones that match your home decor so they blend seamlessly.
3. Use vintage vessels for flowers
There are so many options when using vintage vessels for floral arrangements. A few of our favorites are old vases, pitchers, beakers and tea pots! Use one large arrangement as a center piece, our group together a few smaller ones to make a big impact.

4. Don’t shy away from bright colors in the fall.
We love mixing fall tones such as oranges, reds and yellows, with bright pinks and blues for an unexpected vintage flair. Bringing in vintage mis-matched chairs in these colors adds a fun and vintage vibe to your holiday table!

5. Shop your house for fun fall displays.
You do not have to go out and spend hundreds of dollars decorating for each season. Re-thinking what you have around your home is a great way to save money and have your seasonal decor flow with the rest of your decor.
6. Create a focal point.
A large vintage table creates a beautiful space for family dinners, games and memories shared around the holidays.
7. Collect vintage crates.
Vintage crates are a great way to mix in warmth and character. Use it as a tray for a center piece to display beautiful fall foliage. Crates can be used all year long and in every room of your house, so they are the power house of vintage decor!
8. Get Crafty
Vintage frames make great chalkboards! This is a cheap and easy way to add fall decor into your home. It’s also easy to change out for each holiday!
9. Use vintage scales to display fall decor
Vintage scales are a great way to add a little vintage charm to your decor! We love using them on a table with a vintage pitcher and wheat for the perfect center piece!
10. Add fall colors in unexpected places.
Children’s bedrooms are often neglected when decorating for holidays. I love adding the unexpected decor in our boys room! Switch the sheets out to a fun fall color and have your kids help make decorations for the walls.
