5 Fall Decor Ideas, No Pumpkins Involved

Happy Fall ya’ll. It’s here. The leaves are turning, Sunday morning football creates noisy neighbors and you can finally bring out that ugly sweater that’s been resting in the back of your closet. If you’re the festive type that enjoys decorating your home to reflect the seasons, then you’re in for a real treat with these Fall decor tips. 

If you’re looking for pumpkins, skeletons and cobwebs, this isn’t the right place for you. We want to focus on the Fall aesthetic, without getting caught up in the spooky. It’s all about elegance.

1) White Pumpkins

“White is the new orange,” says Eva Bowker, home improvement expert for Fantastic Handyman. “White pumpkins can be a great addition to your elegant fall decor since they’re somewhat unexpected and grab attention. Plus, let’s face it, orange is a little tacky and doesn’t go with every home design.”

You can do this with white pumpkins instead of the traditional orange which can be found at any local nursery or home store. 

2. Grass wreaths

“Autumn seems to be the season of nature and so having a little in your home is a fitting addition,”says Neil Partridge of NGI Design. “With a dried arrangement, you're able to include a range of different colors featuring an autumnal tone that brings your interior and the season together.”

There you have it. Source some fall-colored wreaths and situate them on your door. You can also arrange dried items throughout your home to set the Fall allure. 

3. Decorative corn

Decorative corn, otherwise known as Indian corn, is great because it works throughout the Halloween season and all through November leading up to Thanksgiving. 

“The one go-to corn for me is the purple variety,” says Kim Depole, creative director of Depole Design. “Enjoy it as a tabletop arrangement and include ribbon in shades of deep plum or violet for a nice contrast.”

4. Burlap (and velvet)

Burlap and velvet may seem like an oddity but they are surprisingly a solid pairing for autumnal vibes. It’s where rustic and luxe intersect and the result is nothing but pure depth and texture. 

“My go-to material is burlap,” Depole says. “It looks great as a runner on the mantel or a tabletop cover, and the edges can be pulled to add some texture. Adding an edge of velvet trim in burgundy or brown really dresses up the look.”

5. Chrysanthemums

Just because we are trying to avoid orange pumpkins, doesn’t mean your porch has to be devoid of color. Chrysanthemums are available in a wide color spectrum, from lush purple to golden yellow, even pure white. 

“During the fall season, everything is brown and red, and while it is a beautiful time of the year, it can often become a little boring,” Partridge says. “With the addition of something like a purple mum, you'll be able to add that splash of color and produce a focal point that draws the attention of guests.”
