When it comes to fall decor, I like to go big or go home. I like incorporating seasonal decorations that seamlessly fit with the style of my home but make a big impact. You can read my rules of thumb for Classy Halloween Decor That Won’t Make You Cringe.

Large-scale fall decor

I saw this setup in a catalog and had to recreate it in my fireplace. Rather than sprinkling little items throughout my home, I chose to create a big display scene in one area. Similar to the big installations that department stores would do for the holidays, I tried to recreate this at home. I love the big impact of the multitude of pumpkins and oversized art. The faux pumpkins I used are affordable, lightweight, and last year after year. The oversized art above the fireplace is in fact digital art that I displayed on my Samsung Frame TV. I foraged these branches from the Japanese maple tree in my backyard, but you can read about my favorite faux florals here.

Then I recreated the same large-scale pumpkin set up outside for a fall decor display by my front door. Paired them with baskets of mums and a seasonal wreath. I have had most of these pumpkins since last year and they have lasted exposed to the elements without cover.

On the inside of the front door, I used black glitter butterflies instead of the traditional Halloween bats. It’s an unexpected yet totally spooky fall decor item.

Element of surprise

Remember when big bat flocks and life-size skeletons made it to your Instagram and Pinterest feed a few years ago? They were cool new decorations that surprised and delighted us all. This is the 2.0 version of that – black glitter butterflies instead of bats and a black skeleton instead of the traditional bone-colored one.

Dual purpose every day items

Think of ways to incorporate fall decor within everyday items. It is less obtrusive and also incorporates the element of surprise from my previous tip. These metal bird leg and spider candle holders are the perfect subtle Halloween and fall decor items. They fit seamlessly with my existing shelf styling.

  1. Hi, Stefan. Love your site!
    My question is about the King of Christmas artificial tree ratings. Is it really possible all their trees have 5-star ratings? Seems sketchy to me. Thank you.

    1. I don’t have any insight into this other than falsifying reviews is an FTC violation and I doubt a reputable company would engage in illegal practices. If you suspect foul play, maybe you can file a report with BBB or FTC.
