While summer is a season with an army of fans, fall has its own crew of die-hards who can’t wait for the cooler weather, changing leaves, and, of course, pumpkin spice. If you’re big into autumn, it’s more than understandable to want to celebrate the season with a little fall decor around your place.

Of course, it’s easy to get caught up in cheesy fall decor, but you don’t have to go there. From adorable wooden pumpkins to the perfect front door wreath, these classy fall decorations help you subtly pay homage to the season.

Mini pumpkins are the ultimate fall table topper, but they don’t last forever. These pretty wooden pumpkins, which come in a set that includes ivory and sage shades, look like the real thing. Display them in a bowl or artfully arrange them down the center of your dining table for a casual nod to the season. Once winter hits, you can pack them away for next year.

It’s a sad but true fact: All pumpkins rot eventually. And, when they’re left out in the elements, things can go downhill even faster. This pumpkin looks just like the real thing, but it’s made of a durable resin. Meaning, it can hang out on your porch or lawn without going bad. Even cooler? You can actually paint it if the mood strikes. Choose between a classic orange shade or white ghost pumpkin look.
