Fall Home Decor on a Budget

Labor Day starts off the fall season, and there is no better way to kick it off than decorating and celebrating! I went shopping this weekend for some fall decor that can fit easily into my apartment and stayed within a strict budget with many trips coming up, and today I am sharing some of my finds with you!

My first change for every holiday or season is my doormat. Doormats are easy to swap out and are relatively inexpensive. The ones I see are typically under $30 and you can find even better deals on sites like Etsy. I love how sassy and funny the sayings are!


Pillows… can you ever have too many?! I am a firm believer that you can just keep piling them on! I have a pumpkin spice pillow from last fall and just got a “hello, fall” pillow from Target 🙂


You can make your place smell like fall for as little as $5 with a candle! Whether it’s a spruce forest, a pumpkin spice latte or a pumpkin pie, candles are a very easy way to bring the season in.

Placemats + Runners

I change my placemats pretty frequently as I buy cheaper ones and choose to replace them as they are dirtied. Fortunately, this normally coincides with the changing of seasons! Adding new placemats or a runner is a big change but at little cost.


This *technically* isn’t decor, but fall mugs are the cuuuuuuutest. I love having one sitting on my coffee table!

Accent Pieces

Pumpkin EVERYTHING with some “grateful” quotes thrown in 😉 I love the new velvet pumpkin trend going on right now! I just got the polka dot pumpkin for my side table.
