Decorate Your Space for Fall With Our 55 Plus Communities in Texas

From Pumpkin Spice Scents to Red and Orange Hints


Decorating for fall, or any season, can be a fun, yet intimidating task. With so many options to choose from to accessorize your space, it can be overwhelming. Some people prefer to go for a more literal style of decorating, featuring items with fall quotes or pumpkin designs. On the other hand, some people prefer to create an atmosphere that evokes feelings of fall by simply using colors and patterns that reflect the season.

If you’re considering adding some fall decor to your space to make it feel like home, a good first step is understanding which style you like and items you may be interested in using. Consider using colors such as yellow, red, brown, tan and orange, and incorporating autumn-themed pieces like pumpkins, gourds, fall foliage, and scarecrows. You may also want to consider if you want to go for timeless decorations that can be used year after year, or a mix of trending decorations. But the biggest tip? Add the decor that makes you happy!

At Sunshine Retirement Living 55 plus communities in Texas, we love to decorate for the fall–and every other season! Keep reading for some of our favorite additions to decorate for fall.

Complement Your Space With Candles

Not only do candles smell delicious and provide an inviting ambiance with their flickering light, but they are also great decorative pieces to add to your space. These look great on bathroom counters, side tables, coffee tables and any other place that needs to be spruced up. Fall-scented candles often include hints of apple, smoke, cinnamon, vanilla, pumpkin, and caramel, as well as jars that feature colors or patterns that match a fall aesthetic. There are plenty of local candle companies in Texas, as well as stores that sell them, but here are some examples of great candle options that will be pleasing on both your eyes and nose:

Balance It Out With Blankets

Sherpa, knitted, chenille, fleece, wool and waffle weave are a few of the many types of cozy blankets you can choose from to elevate your space, whether you plan to place them on the end of your bed, over a chair or on the back of a couch. To achieve a fall theme, look for blankets that feature shades of red, yellow, orange or brown, and designs such as plaid or pumpkins. Here are a few blankets that we love:

Finalize With a Friendly Fall Wreath

A fall wreath is a simple yet effective fall decoration to make your space feel inviting. There are plenty of online tutorials if you’re feeling crafty and want to try to make your own wreath, but if you’re not feeling that adventurous, there are many stores you can purchase them from. Here are some beautiful options:

  • Multicolor Berry Wreath
  • Heather and Eucalyptus Wreath
  • Pumpkin and Pine Cone Twig Wreath
  • Light Up Pumpkin Wreath

Implementing even just a few of these decorating tips is sure to put you on the right track to creating a friendly fall feeling in your home. Some other decorations you can consider are garlands, pillows, table runners or even wall art. At our 55 plus communities in Texas, we’ll take any excuse to decorate. Whether it’s for a season or a specific holiday, we love to create an atmosphere that reflects it, and always encourage our residents to participate by making their own decorations for display!
