Falling Into Early Winter: 5 Decorations That Make For A Cozy Sunroom Living Space


With leaves twirling gently to the ground, families gathering around football games, and pumpkin patches bursting with color, fall is breezing in as a welcome respite from the humid days of summer.
From sporting events, to holidays, to the invigorating autumn air, fall brings so much to celebrate. As loved ones gather to reconnect, you'll want to make your home a haven. Here are 5 easy decorations to make your sunroom or living space cozy for fall.

Orange & Clove Centerpiece

Gather 16 oranges and a jar of whole cloves. On a round plate or cake plate, arrange 7 oranges, with sides touching, in the center of the plate. Top with a second layer of 5 oranges, then a layer of 3, followed by 1, to form a tower of oranges. Press whole cloves into the oranges in a decorative pattern for a sunroom centerpiece with striking aromatic appeal. For added beauty, tuck fall-colored silk or fresh flowers into the spaces between the oranges.

Pumpkin Topiary

Select 3 pumpkins (a small, medium, and large), and a 3-foot-long wooden dowel with a 1/2-inch diameter from your craft store. Slice the stems off the medium and large pumpkins, leaving the smallest pumpkin's stem intact. Press the dowel into the top of the largest pumpkin, and slide it through to the bottom. Set the medium pumpkin on top of the dowel, and press it through to rest on the large pumpkin. Trim your dowel if needed, before adding the smallest pumpkin, so that the dowel doesn't poke through the top, and then press your small pumpkin on top. For extra charm, tie a ribbon around the small pumpkin's stem, or set your topiary in a planter for an elegant sunroom display.

 Naturally Scented Candles

Place a rubber band around the middle of a wide unscented pillar candle. Tuck cinnamon sticks into the rubber band around the perimeter of the candle, until the candle is completely wrapped with cinnamon sticks. Tie a piece of twine or burlap around the rubber band to conceal it and secure the cinnamon. Light several of these candles in your sunroom for irresistible ambience.

 Cozy Faux Fur 

Is there anything more cozy than cuddling up in faux fur? Whether it's a fluffy fur throw, a nap-inducing fur pillow, or a fur rug to warm your toes, this trend for fall is as chic as it is soothing. Gray is trending for fall, and is stylish year-round, so grab a fur accent piece to enhance your sunroom. With cozy surroundings, you can open those windows and enjoy the crisp fall air.


Festive Firewood

Bundle a stack of firewood and tie with a fall ribbon or a pretty swath of burlap. Drop several droplets of essential oil onto the logs in scents like cinnamon or pine. Place in a corner of your sunroom for rustic charm, and add oil droplets as needed. For unique interest, consider white birch logs or tuck a sprig of pine into the ribbon.

With just a few minutes and simple supplies, you can welcome fall into your sunroom. From spiced scents, to soft throws, to soothing centerpieces, you can enchant all of your senses while making memories with the ones you love.

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
