This fall classic has been around long before the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. Cornucopia’s are a traditional decorative piece that bring back fond memories for many. These have long been associated with the fall season and symbolize the bountiful harvests that come with it.

Fall Luminaries

Setting up fall luminaries outside your home lights up the walkway to your door and graciously welcomes your guests into your home. Flameless candles work great with decorated Mason jar’s and paper bags cut into festive shapes double as Halloween decorations!

Go Rustic

The traditional rustic look is quickly coming back into style as more people opt for farm style designs in their home. Adorning your home in reclaimed wood to create an old-timey feel will remind us of where many of our fall traditions started and where they are going.


Plaid has long been the fashion choice of fall. this pattern is generaly associated with the falling of the leaves and the nights finally getting colder. This comes back into style every fall so you won’t have to worry about not getting any use out of your decor after this year! You can use plaid via bedding, curtains, and throw pillows to relax on.

Throw Blankets

You don’t have to just carve them either, here are some fun hacks you can use instead for decoration to present your yearly pumpkins!
