Want an inexpensive way to decorate your home for fall? You’ll love these unique ways to use fall floral decor in your home!
There’s something amazing about sunflowers, isn’t there?
You’re driving along the road, minding your own business one summer day, and up ahead you notice something gorgeous:
A whole field filled with gorgeous golden sunflowers!
Turning themselves towards the sun and soaking in the end of the summer’s rays.
To us, seeing that sunflower field always signals that the long, lazy days of summer are coming to an end.
It’s almost time to turn our minds to all things pumpkin.
But as much as we love pumpkin everything (especially this pumpkin spice shake!), we’re usually not quite ready for it all in August.
Which is exactly why we love using fall floral stems in our homes!
They’re the perfect way to transition from our lighter and brighter summer decor.
It’s so simple to bring in the warmer colors of fall.
Without going all in on the pumpkins.
Do you love to change out your home’s decor with the seasons?
We do too!
Today we’re sharing our favorite ways to use faux fall floral stems to decorate your home for Fall.
For your convenience, we’ve included some of our favorite fall stems in a shopping resource gallery at the end of this post!
Ways to Use Fall Floral Decor
We both love using fall floral decor in our homes!
Before pulling out all the pumpkins, we start with adding some fall color with faux fall floral stems.
The best part is these faux stems can be found inexpensively, and they last for years!
But we’re not talking about your grandmother’s fake flowers.
The flowers we’re sharing today are both natural and realistic!
Let’s take a look at some of the ways we’ve used faux fall florals over the years.
Fall Florals On Our Doors
This gorgeous door basket arrangement is perfect for fall, dontcha think?
Door baskets are such a fun alternative to hanging a wreath on your door.
Of course, if wreaths are your thing, you’re bound to fall in love with at least one of these fall wreaths that AnnMarie found.
Or you can follow Anne’s easy, step-by-step instructions to make a fall floral wreath in the color scheme of your choice.
How to Use Fall Florals Inside Your Home
There are so many ways to use fall florals inside your home.
Obviously you can make gorgeous autumn flower arrangements.
But you can tuck some in just about anywhere for a soft and pretty touch.
Anne incorporated these tiny white flowers into a neutral fall centerpiece.
One of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions is AnnMarie’s Thankful Tree.
This bucket filled with pretty fall branches is such a stunning way to greet all visitors to her home!
But fall floral stems aren’t all colorful!
These neutral fall branches in Anne’s front entry are a great way to add some height to her antique sewing table.
But the neutral leaves don’t detract from her family gallery wall.
Fall branches are a great way to add height in a room with high ceilings.
AnnMarie used some colorful branches along with some vintage amber bottles for a pretty fall statement in her family room.
If you live in an area where the trees change colors earlier, you could get fall branches from your yard!
But in NC we don’t see much fall color until the beginning of November, so faux branches are the way we go.
Anne used some faux branches similar to the ones in AnnMarie’s Thankful Tree on her front porch to add some more color to that space.
And can we talk about that fantastic vintage bucket?
Be sure to play around with all kinds of containers!
Decorating with Faux Fall Grasses
We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. We love that faux florals and grasses can be re-used year after year.
But even if you’re using the same faux florals, that doesn’t mean your home will look the same.
Check out these gorgeous fall grasses on AnnMarie’s bar cabinet this year.
They look completely different in that galvanized bucket from last year.
Check out how they look in a large glass jug instead!
And hellooooo, sweater pumpkins!
We love using these budget-friendly pumpkins in our fall decorating.
Fall grasses don’t have to just be brown and green!
Look at how colorful these grasses are.
The variety of dried grasses are mixed with some gold flowers for a nice pop of color on top of Anne’s refrigerator.
AnnMarie found some golden wheat last year that looks gorgeous on top of her fireplace this year.
Have you seen how she decorated her fireplace by shopping her home?
It’s so fun to challenge yourself to give an area a new look without spending any money!
Have you noticed something?
Because it’s popping out to us!
We’re both definitely drawn to faux fall florals in the gold color family!
These tall grasses are dotted with tiny yellow flowers and help to draw the eye to the top of Anne’s built-in book cases in her family room.
You can really tuck faux flowers anywhere.
How sweet are these pretty autumn stems spilling out of a market bag from the Magnolia store in Waco?
Decorating with Old Faux Flowers
Over time, faux flowers will start to show their age.
But don’t think that means you need to get rid of them!
These fabric magnolia blossoms used to be bright white with supple petals and leaves.
However after 14 years, they’ve become discolored.
And a little brittle.
They might not look right during spring and summer.
But they’re perfect for fall!
How to Store Your Faux Flowers
Have we convinced you that you need some fall floral decor in your home yet?
Now you may be wondering the best way to store them.
After all, you want to be able to reuse your pretty autumn florals!
The most important thing is to make sure they don’t get crushed.
If you’re using large plastic tubs, avoid putting anything heavy on top of the faux stems. Instead, place your florals on the top of the tub.
Of course, if you have a lot of faux florals, you might want to consider storing them in a tub all their own.
Another great option is using the tubs meant for under bed storage. Since they’re more shallow, the stems are less likely to be squashed.
