Fall Entryway Decorating Ideas

Nothing makes a great first impression like a beautifully decorated entryway! It’s also wonderful to come home to at the end of the day. Fall entryway decor adds warmth to your home and serves as a stylishly subtle reminder of the season’s themes - like giving thanks and enjoying family. Here are some fall entryway decorating ideas that will pump up your home’s invitation factor.

Dress Up Your Entryway Table

Fall entryway table decor is so easy when you decorate with natural elements like pinecones, pumpkins, gourds and branches. These organic accessories can instantly change the feel of a room, letting you know fall is here. Adding small pumpkins and long branches to a clear vase provides a festive centerpiece for your table that takes only a few minutes to create. Group together pinecones and gourds on the entry table for added color and visual interest.

Do you want to add a pinch of glam to your entryway? Pumpkins, gourds and pinecones painted with metallic spray paint offer added shimmer. Mix metal tones for extra warmth. Consider placing fall leaves and a flameless candle in a clear hurricane candle holder. You can put this look together in just a few minutes.  When fall is over, simply take out the leaves. The candle and the candle holder can accessorize your entryway year-round! Looking for even more visual impact? Hang a mirror on the wall behind the display to double the candle’s glow.  

Baskets placed under the table offers space to store cozy blankets for chilly evenings. Consider storing a couple of your favorite books there as well. It can be your go-to spot to head to first when it’s time to snuggle on the couch with a good read.       

Accessorize Your Door

Wreaths are just as beautiful inside as they are outside. Those that include fall colors, pinecones and gourds offer a classic feel that everyone’s sure to enjoy. For a more dramatic look, consider hanging three identical wreaths from one another with craft wire. This look is stunning in a two-story entryway with tall doors. Alternatively, wrapping a wreath in battery-operated string lights is a quick way to add sparkle. Fall garland draped around the door's frame complements your wreath and provides a pop of fall color.

Get Ready for School

With fall comes school. Fitting your entryway with functional furniture like a storage cabinet and bench helps keep your entryway orderly and ensures everyone’s ready to go on those busy mornings. A bench provides a convenient place to sit when your little ones are tying their shoes. Placing utility baskets underneath the bench gives kids a place to store their daily must-haves. Consider assigning a basket to each child, so everyone knows where to find their things when it’s time to head out. Storage cabinets offer extra space to store gloves, scarves, coats and other seasonal necessities. With everyone organized, your mornings are sure to go smoothly.
