The autumn season inspires the most striking decor ideas, often with very little creativity involved. Just look to nature for bright fall colors, interesting shapes and textures to spice up your front door or dining room table. Here are some quick and easy ideas to help you welcome the fall season with open arms.

Pumpkin Centerpiece: Take an interesting tray or rectangular platter and add small pumpkins or gourds, mums and clusters of berries. Make it appear as though you are serving up tidbits from the garden.

Maple Wheat Wreath: If you are crafty and want to purchase individual wheat sheaf's and make your own wreath, good for you. For the rest of us, purchase a ready made wreath fashioned from wheat sheaf's and go look for the most colorful maple leaves you can find. You may want to stick to one color, or vary them slightly.

Assemble a small cluster of leaves at the bottom right, and then add individual leaves here and there. Glue gun the stems into the spaces between the wheat heads so the entire leaf is displayed.

Autumn on a Window Sill: Choose one item, such as gourds or pumpkins and display two or three along a shelf or window sill. Wind beaded or leafy garland, around each or scatter pinecones or nuts along the shelf.

Wheat, Wheat, and More Wheat: Purchase a bundle of wheat heads and place in a rectangular container half filled with sand. Tie the bundle with a decorative ribbon, and cover the top of the sand with Spanish moss. This is a striking centerpiece for a dining or entry table.

Nature Vases: Some of the prettiest vases can be found outdoors. Hollow out a small pumpkin and proceed to fill with flowers, branches with berries and interesting leaves. A larger pumpkin also works as a great plant holder for a bunch of mums.

Fill the Scene With Green: This centerpiece made with crunchy Granny Smith apples makes an eye-catching autumn display. Take a clear, glass salad or punch bowl, and place a large green candle in the middle so that it protrudes quite high out of the bowl. If the candle is too short, simply elevate it with a can or other object. Fill the inside of the bowl with Granny Smith apples, hiding the candle base.

Fall Planters: This idea works well with the large cast planters, but it can be adapted to suit smaller ones as well. Start by placing a large pumpkin in your planter. If it drops to low, fill the bottom with wood or rocks to raise the pumpkin well above the rim. Collect branches, leaves, or grapevine, and place under the pumpkin so they appear to be spilling out over the edges. This looks pretty at night with some tiny white lights.
