While I am not a fan of decorating my house with autumn decor, I do have autumn flowers around (surprise, surprise!) and maybe, just maybe, a few white pumpkins. But that is the extent of it.
However, there is something appealing about an autumn wreath. When done well they can be lovely; but let’s try to keep it in mostly live materials. Some faux berries or a few silk leaves will be tolerated… but dried flowers, berries, leaves and grasses are the best.
Here are a few ideas I’ve gathered for you. Many of the best products are available from vendors on Etsy: there is a huge variety both in terms of price and design. So take a look:
Here is a company I found on Houzz:
The Magnolia Company
How about this beauty, also from The Magnolia Company:
The Turkey Pheasant Wreath!
I’ll close with this lovely, understated and sophisticated autumn wreath from
Leave it to Terrain to come up with something unusual: the Sunset Protea Wreath. Just in case I haven’t told you before, this is one of my most favorite places to shop, either in person (hard to get to…) or on line. To say I like just about everything in this store is an understatement. I had done a post with a slide show all about
my visit to the suburban Philadelphia store.
What do you think? Are you going to order one of these? Are you going to go to the Terrain site? Do you decorate for autumn in your house?
Libby, Wonderful idea for a post. Just went to Terrain’s site – delightful.
Hi Julie: Thank you! Oh yes, Terrain is amazing. Very dangerous to hang out there!!! I will write you more when I have a chance…
What a beautiful way to add a little fall decor to your home. I love the wreath made from dried Pennycress and birch twigs. Happy Monday, Libby!

Thank you, ladies! I like that same one, and then the last one from Terrain. Have you been to one of their stores? Love, love!!
Although fall is my favorite season, I opt to decorate with just a hint of the season. A few white pumpkins, pheasant feathers and pinecones are enough for me. We were so busy this year, I didn’t even put a wreath on our porch. I usually put together a version using dried leaves, berries and cones. I have my eye on that simple grapevine wreath. Great post.

Thanks, Cyndi. Yes, you have certainly been busy. I’ve loved seeing and reading about all your travels…but I’m sure you’re glad to be home now!!
These are sensational!
I love wreaths too but somehow I only get down to putting one together at Christmas time. I usually buy a plain wreath with evergreen foliage from my local garden center, then dress it up with succulent cuttings, berries, magnolia seed cones and whatever else I can find in my garden. If we had anything close to real fall foliage here, I might make one up for Thanksgiving too but we’ve got little to no fall color most years.
BEAUTIFUL WREATHS………ALL OF THEM!I would have a hard time picking JUST ONE!
