When is it acceptable to start decorating for fall? For me, I wait until September. August is just too early, and even early September seems too hot to go full-on Halloween. But one way you can decorate your space during that in-between time — without going overboard — is with pumpkins.
I prefer a neutral-toned pumpkin in my home since it matches my decor aesthetic (white pumpkins and darker or more muted oranges). When it comes to the material, I’m down for almost anything — fabric, ceramic, wood, or event the real thing!
It’s no surprise that Target is killing the game when it comes to fall decor yet again. Here are some new arrivals of decorative pumpkins from Target that will match just about any home decor style. Which one is your favorite?
Decorative Ceramic Pumpkins
Ceramic pumpkins are the closest to the “real deal” as you can get (and they won’t rot!) I’ve had a few pumpkins similar to these and they’ve lasted me over the years. I love the color scheme of the ones offered at Target, whereas other retails only carry the typical bright orange shade.
Decorative Glass Pumpkins
If you have a more feminine or modern style, then these decorative glass pumpkins may be a better fit. These have a shiny gold and silver effect for a fancy finish. Be sure to safely secure them in storage so they don’t break!
Decorative Straw Pumpkins
IF you have more of a farmhouse or rustic home decor style, then you’ll love these straw pumpkins. The neutral shades go with literally everything, so you can keep them up even after Halloween is over. The straw construction adds a layer of texture and depth as well.

Decorative Fabric Pumpkins
These fabric pumpkins would look so cute in a nursery or child’s room. If you’re a fan of neutral and whites, these will pair nicely with your home decor.
Ways to Decorate Your Home with Pumpkins
- Use pumpkins to add dimension to shelves, bookcases, or mantles. This is a nice way to decorate your home for fall without going overboard — just replace a tchotchke or two with a pumpkin.
- Use smaller pumpkins as vase or jar filler. For added flair, add some wooden beads or fake acorns into the mix. They also fit nicely into dough bowls.
- Place pumpkins under a glass cloche for a beautiful centerpiece.
- If you have a bar cart, add a few pumpkins between the spirits and mixers.
