pumpkins and candles and printed pillows, oh my!
Garnishing your home for the holidays and incorporating seasonal décor can be overwhelming and costly, but only if you don't know the right tips and tricks.
Stores like Target, HomeGoods and Big Lots carry discounted decorations at a small cost without compromising quality too significantly. Visiting these retailers is an essential step in decorating your home for the changing seasons, and the fall décor season is currently in full swing.
Whether you like to add traditional orange touches to your home during the fall months or prefer a more neutral palette, there are plenty of inexpensive options that will get you and everyone in your household in the seasonal spirit.
Simply by taking a trip to the Target dollar section, also known as 'Bullseye's Playground,' you can walk away with all the decorations to spice up your home without breaking the bank. With nearly every item ringing in under $5, you're able to mix and match your favorite styles.
This year, Target is offering a variety of decorative pumpkins, including sequined pumpkins for Halloween, large felt pumpkins and even multi-sized black gingham pumpkins. All of these items are in high demand, so it's important to regularly check in on your local dollar section to make the most of the décor deals.
Among other items, Target also offers framed wooden signs featuring seasonal sayings. As always, the brand has hit the nail on the head, with color-coordinated sets of signs that look amazing scattered around the home or paired together on a wall.
TJMaxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods always bring out the big guns when it comes to seasonal décor, and this year is no exception.
The Rae Dunn brand brings a classic and chic look to any room or decoration set up and looks amazing beside other pieces. Most Marshalls and HomeGoods stores carry the brand's items, but if you find some in your local store, act quick! They're a discount decorator cult favorite and never last long on the shelves.
TJX Company stores are known for selling name brand items at a highly discounted price, and although many may look over the cluttered shelves full of pillows and decorations, it's not rare to find multiple gems per shopping trip.
Happy little signs are great additions around the home and can make an empty white wall become beautiful and eye-catching. Similar to catchalls and other trays, these simple additions to a home can really add the perfect touch.
As fall is the season of apple picking, hayrides and cozy backyard fires, many brands take inspiration for their decorations from farmhouses and other rustic styles. Don't be afraid to incorporate rusty steel signs, buffalo check patterns and woven twig baskets into your home — they add a classic homey touch.
