For those of us who live in the US, Fall = October = Halloween. More or less. However, over here in Europe live is a tat different. And while Halloween is celebrated to some degree, Fall treats as decorations mean tasteful & elegant displays of the season’s abundance. And that means: … food. Europe is all about food. It has been so for centuries as vintage paintings show us. So, today I am going to treat you a range of Fall Decorations with Fall treats. Shall we… ?!
Fall… all just browns, yellows and warm reds.
Here are 2 ideas for easy displays of Fall Treats:
Fall Treats – Great Decoration, Great Taste
Simple Bowls of Fruit
Fruit has just the right colors for Fall displays. What I like about fruit displays is that it has a place to live and I can strategically place it in a corner of the home where they will be eaten as well. Win-win. Over the years, I have created Fall fruit displays in many ways, and my to-go-to design is on a bed of pretty Fall leaves. Collected on a morning walk.
Modern interiors become humanized with a glass bowl of green apples. Add some wooden sticks for height, surprise and a hint of nature.
If you have a country kitchen, perhaps you might like to insinuate your garden is bestowing you with abundance. A superfast and cute farm look is created by lining a basket with a cottage tea towel fill it with a mixture of fruits.
Fall Cookies, Candies & Cakes
Again, most baked treats are naturally Fall tinted. Now it’s just a matter of finding Fall leaves cookie shapes, and red, orange and yellow sugar sprinkles. Other displays can be individual pumpkins pies on a tiered cupcake stand. Perhaps interspersed with some decorative mini pumpkins? Candy-corn shaped treats are always a winner, as are pretty packaged cakes in Fall-themed and Fall-colored wraps.
