It’s easy to get caught up in decorating with fake spider webs and ghoulish window clings, but in a little more than a week, Halloween will have come and gone and you’ll have to put those decorations in your designated orange and black storage bins until next year. Why not start getting some fall decor that can carry over into November as well? Two months for the price of one sounds good to me! Plus, we all know deep down, no matter how cute it is, it’s way too early for Christmas decorations.
A staple no matter the season – these are fantastic because there are so many fall scents to choose from. My favorite this season has been “Harvest” by Ashland – although Yankee Candle has one by the same name as well. I got Harvest and Pumpkin Spice from Michael’s because they were selling two for $8, neither has burned out yet – and I light them a lot.
Okay, we are all “adults” now, so that can only mean it’s now cool to have themed kitchen towels to match the season. Pottery Barn, of course, has a great selection of good quality kitchen towels that will make you the envy of all your friends. Host a dinner party just to show these bad boys off!
You can never really have too many pillows, and what better way to bring a little of the season into your apartment than a couple new throw pillows for the couch?! These are inexpensive and there are a ton of cute options at Target – of course. Interchanging a few pillow throughout the seasons is a quick way to change the look of your room a bit and give yourself a seasonal boost of joy!
These provide just the right amount of charm and/or kitsch for your apartment. The great thing about magnets is that they allow your wacky personality to really shine through. It’s a little thing that can add a lot to the feel of your place. You can find a bunch of cute, unique options on Etsy!
The good thing about these items – they’re not terribly expensive, they will last and look normal hanging around your apartment. These subtle fall decorations are the right way to keep your fall seasonal spirit going until the inevitable Christmas madness.
