Fall & holiday decor guide

gift guide, home, inspiration comment

Fall & holiday decor | see all the picks at

With Thanksgiving coming up in under 2 weeks, I usually like to change or add things to the house to really embrace the season. I usually opt for little details that add the holiday feel rather than changing out everything. Since storage space is limited, going for pieces that are seasonally appropriate (i.e being able to extend use during the fall and winter seasons), and possibly year-round, makes sense. I tend towards the minimalist (i.e white, hints of metallic) to spruce up a room or table. I’ve rounded up some picks that will add a little bit of flare to your decor below.

The table is always the center of holiday gatherings. I’m drawn to the swirls and glyphs of this table runner. The metallic accents would be well highlighted when put on top of a plain white tablecover. Minimal centerpieces would be required given the intricate nature of the table runner but opting for a few of these metallic pumpkins would add a nice touch. Give the table a contemporary feel with square dishes, gold flatware, and provide a place card by adding miniature white pumpkins with your guests names written on them.

Not having a sit down meal? Tapas or appetizers with drinks are always a hit. This gold bar cart is sure to make a sparkle and will be the central hub for all guests. Place these plates around the house to make various food stations. Set all your drinks on the bar cart and don’t forget to set these metallic drink markers by the glasses so your guests can write their names on it and you won’t have a case of “whose glass is this?”

With the exception of the table runner, appetizer plates, and pumpkins, everything else can be used year round for all your get-togethers. Talk about getting the most of your money!


1. Gold foil fall theme runner

2. Gold accent flatware {also, comes in rose gold color}

3. 4 piece stoneweare appetizer plates

4. Metallic accented pumpkin {lights up, too!}

5. Wine / drink markers

6. Gold bar cart
