Creating Fall Ambiance with Embellished Lanterns

Pin It
The Autumn season is {almost} officially upon us.  A chill is in the air here in the upper northeast, the tips of the leaves are just beginning to dot the horizon with little licks of color against the blue sky.  Pumpkins are popping up in front of stores on street corners everywhere as the hint of smoke from fireplaces burning scents the air.  Soon the aromas of hot apple pies and cinnamon scented treats will fill houses as we settle in for the season.

I love to decorate my home with accents that bring about a certain ambiance to convey my love for each season and Holiday.   Fall is the perfect time to tickle the senses with smells and sights that bring about a sense of coziness as daylight hours become shorter.  Filling candle holders and lanterns with candles in every size, color, and scent are a perfect way to make that transition to a new season.

A collection of lanterns in different sizes and textures along with inexpensive candle holders can be grouped to create the warm textural ambiance the Autumn season is all about.  Here, I've grouped 3 on a bookshelf that sits in our living room.  The warm copper tones of the lanterns mixed with bright autumnal colored ribbons and floral sprays give the sense of sight a little show.  The cheetah print runner in it's warm and welcoming tones give the display a bit of playfulness.

Grouping lanterns can be a great way to create a fun and eye catching centerpieces on a dining room table as well, especially when embellished with floral sprays and ribbons, nixing the need for a traditional centerpiece. 

Lighting with embellished lanterns is beautiful both indoors and out.  Welcome Holiday guests before they get to the door by lining your outdoor walkway with weather safe LED Lanterns wrapped with colorful ribbons, floral sprays and lush foliage this season. 

Grab a lantern or candle holder and come on back, next week I'll show you how to quickly and inexpensively embellish them!
