3 Simple Last Minute Fall Ideas.
I love simple.
Especially when decorating for fall.
These are 3 simple last minute FALL ideas to add to your home.
I’m all for less stress and creating a home that isn’t going to add to it.
Decorating can be one of those things that can be looked over because it’s another thing to add to a busy schedule.
I am with you on that.
Get together these 3 things and call it good for fall.
This one is super simple but has the greatest impact.
No. 1 – Pumpkins
For last minute go to a local grocery store and pick up some pumpkins. You can get orange but there are some scary ones with bumps and some white ones.
You can put just one on your porch or by your front door. Just one pumpkin can bring fall into your home.
Other areas to put pumpkins:
- Kitchen counter
- Even the laundry room
Buy faux pumpkins.
I’ve been collecting fake pumpkins for many years. I go to the end of season sale and can find them for 90% off.
If you’re late in getting faux pumpkins, then Amazon is to the rescue.
Here’s a set I’ve bought in the past that has the little burlap pumpkins, leaves and small white pumpkins. For larger pumpkins, you can get these here.
Adding a pumpkin is probably the easiest way to bring Fall decor in your home since it’s usually inexpensive. Plus, if you have kids, carving pumpkins for Halloween is a must.
No. 2 – Flowers, Twigs, Leaves and branches.
Super simple idea that will take you minutes to gather.
Go outside with pruning sheers like these ones. Look for those beautifully colored leaves and cut down a good amount to put in a vase, a mason jar or whatever you have to hold them in.
I’ve made a wreathe with real bright yellow leaves and put it on our front door. Super simple and inexpensive.
Common plants I’ve seen for fall are the pussy willows and cat tails. Local grocery stores are a great place to find seasonal fall plants like these.
While grocery shopping go to the floral department. There are inexpensive seasonal bouquets, flowers and branches. This can take minutes from your day to get FALL décor in your home.
Fall stems from Michaels or Hobby Lobby are another great place to find fall decor.
If you’re like me, and you’re late in getting fall decorations like me, then we’re in this together.
I say that cause I walked into Michaels a few days ago, and the shelves were bare of most anything worth buying. It was a sad moment.
So, I went to my tried and true, Amazon.
I found these flowers below from Amazon recently. They are cotton stems with eucalyptus leaves. The moment I received them in the mail, I was blown away with how amazing they looked. Here’s the link.
I placed them in a Goodwill glass pitcher I spent $5.99. Plopped them in and called it a day.
I share a FALL Decorate with Me YouTube video below for inspiration using the cotton stems.
No. 3 – Pillow covers
Over the years I have invested in really good pillow inserts.
The feather down pillow insert has been my favorite. I love how easy they are to fluff up after being used.
A friend of mine mentioned a pillow she has used in replacement of feather down. She sent me a link. I have since then purchased these solely.
The reason is they are featherless but feel lush and have a plumpness that is very much like a real feather down.
In some ways better.
Now, I will pass this link to you. Hopefully you find these luscious pillows a winner, too. Especially on the sofa watching a movie or football game. These are amazingly soft.
Here’s the link for these featherless pillow inserts.
Every season, I will change the covers only.
They can simply be a solid color like the brown one in the photo below. These are simple pillow covers that easily transition throughout the season of fall into Thanksgiving.
Here’s the link for the pillow covers.
A room can be transformed by simply adding a new pillow on your sofa or chair in a fall color.
Hobby Lobby and Joann Fabrics are also great places to find fall pillow covers.
I love the farmhouse ones like the one in the photo below on my newly painted Victorian sofa.
Of course, if you’re in a hurry to get a Fall pillow cover, here is a link for a quick Amazon one, here.

I hope you were inspired to add these 3 simple things to add to your fall décor.
In another post I share 11 steps to setting my dining room table for fall, here. Here’s the link for that. And a YouTube video below showing these steps.
You are right! Between grocery store ( or farm stand) pumpkins and yard trimming (or again grocery store buys) you are set for fabulous fall decorating! Thanks for sharing.
You are welcome. Thanks for coming by.
