A Happy Harvest

Delighting with all the fall feels, a harvest décor theme reminds people of pumpkin picking, corn mazes, apple cider, and bags filled to the brim with fresh-picked apples.  
Layering straw bales, pumpkins, and mums makes the perfect fall scene. For a natural element, add dried corn stalks by your front door. And to top off the harvest theme, a festive wreath and neutral doormat are simple additions to elevate your look. The best part is, most of these materials can be sourced from local Hudson Valley farms, making decorating a breeze.
