If you enjoy cashing in on the seasons when it comes to decorating in your home, the transition from summer to fall can be a big one. Summer is typically about bright, vibrant colors while fall is more along the lines of browns and oranges. These warm tones work great in the home and make great complimentary colors for any room. A great piece in every home that can be changed on a seasonal basis is the coffee table.
Typically, most guests are going to see it and it makes a beautiful centerpiece for the living room. If you’re going to place decorative concentration anywhere, the living room’s coffee table should be your first choice. The first thing you want to think about is the table covering. Although you don’t have to, it’s a great idea to head to a fabric store and choose a piece of fabric that you can use and reuse every year for the same season. Choosing a dark brown or dark orange color will give you a nice backdrop to work with.
If you find a fabric with a fall themed pattern or perhaps a leaf embossing on it, choosing that can help enhance your theme overall. After purchasing the fabric, simply finishing the ends on a sewing machine will give your table covering clean and finished result. Once you’ve chosen a table covering, you’ll need to focus on a centerpiece for the table. You’ll want to judge the size of your centerpiece based on the size of your table. Remember you don’t want it to be too large so guests can still utilize the table for drinks or small plates if they have to.
For a fall centerpiece, a quick and easy project that any homeowner can complete is to create a “leafy” ring to place around a scented candle. By heading to any craft store, you’ll be able to find a large selection of fake flowers and leaves. By purchasing a variety of orange, brown, and yellow leaves and flowers you’ll be able to have plenty to work with. Craft stores will also be able to provide you with various sized Styrofoam rings. By inserting your flowers and leaves into the appropriately sized ring for your particular table, you’ll be able to instantly create a beautiful centerpiece.
Once you’ve created your ring, finding an appropriately sized candle for the center is your next objective. If you plan on actually burning the candle, finding a glass container for it should also be added to your list. A simple fix for this issue would be to purchase a jar candle. Jar candles are available in a variety of scents and colors, and purchasing one that gives off a traditional fall scent will help to enhance your theme. Once you’ve placed the ring around your candle, ensure that it fits on your table and allows enough space around it for your guests to place drinks or plates.
