Creative and Crafty Decorating Ideas for a Fall Harvest Party!

Raffia napkin ring star by Bellenza

A fall harvest party can be such a heartwarming occasion. But one sure way to amp up the charm even more is with rustic decorations and table elements that you’ve made yourself! So we’re thrilled to share these 5 creative ideas gathered from our own styled sets for fall (links will lead you to each post for all the details). We guarantee these accent pieces will make your Thanksgiving gathering extra special, plus impress family members and guests with your crafting skills!

Think Eco-friendly Details with a Crafty Spin!

Fall harvest party decorating ideas. Includes a DIY Napkin Ring, Rustic Table Elements, and a Welcome Wreath for your Porch.

1 – Our DIY napkin ring (also shown in the table setting in #2) is full of eco-friendly details. Its core is a recycled cardboard roll covered in dried corn husks. For decorations, it has empty pistachio shells and a piece of star anise as an eye-catching topper! Like to give these a try? Go here for the how-to.

2 – Here, we proudly showcase a whole grouping of eco-friendly DIY pieces you can include in your rustic theme. Spot them in the photo, then check out the tutorial links for each: a corn husk charger, a cork coaster, decoupage bottle favors, a seeds-and-beans table number, and a nutshell-and-spice napkin ring!

3 – This DIY twig wreath extends a warm welcome to arriving party guests! Notice how we displayed it on an entryway couch rather than on a door or wall, plus we paired it with a tray of candles (seen in the full post) spelling out “Welcome”!

4 – Surprise each guest with a colorful bundle of treats wrapped in organza on every place setting. Again, the look is homegrown and organic with a rich burnt orange color matching the overall table decor, and quaint corn husk favor tags (seen here). Tucked inside could be a crunchy assortment of nuts, a jar of pumpkin pie or cinnamon spice, or a pack of freshly-ground gourmet coffee.

5 – The lovely thing about fall is how natural elements make the perfect decorative accents for the season! Check out our twig table number, raffia napkin ring, and leafy menu card ideas that you can easily DIY just in time for Thanksgiving.
