It’s not quite time to deck the halls, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo holiday decorations between Halloween and December 1. And if you want to set the scene for a Friendsgiving, or just make things feel a bit more autumnal, you don’t have to settle for fake leaves. Etsy’s marketplace is a great place to find cozy, seasonal decor that will look great year after year. Not sure where to start? We asked their head of trends, Dayna Isom Johnson, to share with us nine of her favorite fall buys perfect for this time of year. Bonus: Many will flow seamlessly into winter decor as well (and maybe be great year-round).
Below, find Dayna’s picks, just for AT readers.
“Lighting is key to decorating a cozy home, and shoppers can set the mood with these modern candle holders”
Fall Wreath, $30 at 1st Street Finds
“Make guests feel welcomed from the moment they walk in by adding a modern, fall wreath to your entrance.”
“Add an air of sophistication to your tablescapes by pairing autumn motifs and patterns with gold accents.”
“It’s time to break out the fall recipes–leave your guests wowed by your signature dishes when opting for a hand-painted serving ware like this ceramic pie plate.”
“The holidays are all about gathering with the family and friends you cherish most, so surround your space with accents that speak to that”
“The modern farmhouse style is trending this fall, and it’s easy to get the look with a few rustic-yet-refined pieces, like this tea light holder that can also be repurposed as a holiday centerpiece.”
“A festive serving tray is an essential for holiday hosting. Use it for the cocktail bar, serving desserts and goodies at the end of the night, or even as the centerpiece for your tablescape.”
