Decorate Your Hudson Valley Home With Feathers This Fall

In lieu of fall leaves, opt for feathers in a myriad of colors for your Thanksgiving table, mantel, or just because.


In lieu of classic autumn leaves, opt for feathers in a myriad of colors for your Thanksgiving table, mantel, or just because.

People often think of leaves when they think of decorating for fall, but I prefer feathers for their texture, range of colors, and sturdiness (leaves can crumble even with just the slightest of touches). Plus, they’re an excellent option if you’re looking for décor you can use year after year.

Here are some of our favorite ideas for using the unexpected decorating elements in your autumnal décor.

Feather-Filled Centerpiece

Take a simple white pitcher and fill it with fall foliage, flowers, and feathers for a dynamic centerpiece for your table or entryway. This option is eye-catching with both real and artificial flowers.

Statement Art

Look for prints that are stylish enough to keep up all year round and can easily be downloaded and printed at home. I love the idea of framing the feathery artwork in a set of three in gold or rustic wood frames and putting them on display on a mantel.

African Juju Hats

Feathered Juju hats are an ever-popular design trend, and it’s easy to see why. They look fabulous hanging on the wall as a piece of art or clustered together to make a statement.

Gold Wire Feather Wall Décor

Delicate and sophisticated, this gold wire feather adds a bit of glitz and glamour to any room year round. It’s ideal if you want to add a bit of sparkle to your interior.

Gold-Dipped Feathers

Take colorful feathers and dip them in gold paint, then gather them in a centerpiece, string them onto a garland, use them as place cards, or sprinkle them around a table for a colorful tablescape. This is a fun DIY project to do with the older kids as well.
