Fall decor can be a little tricky. The whole dried gourds/wheat/pinecones/orange/tartan thing…it’s very easy for it to feel dated and excessively fussy. Below are some modern, minimalist takes on traditional fall decor that’ll make your home feel autumnal, and anything but average.

If you’re into the pink-and-white pumpkin pile pictured above, surprise: That isn’t paint! It’s just pink and white balloons with the ends snipped off, stretched over mini pumpkins.

Obviously these pumpkins win fall. They’re like the pumpkins at school who are so cool they won’t even talk to your pumpkin.

How to make them: just paint an assortment of small pumpkins in different shades of matte chalkboard paint, and glue on studs and spikes (you can find inexpensive ones at Jo-Anns or Michael’s).

More traditional – but still nice and simple – is this fresh-looking twist on a gourd centerpiece. Wood box, succulents, white pumpkin, a couple of pinecones. Done.

There are elements of this display that would be totally easy to incorporate into a party (the framed “Happy Thanksgiving” print, for example, or the white cake plate dessert displays). It’s a nice way to save space – the food itself becomes the centerpiece – and the staggered heights of the plates create a really beautiful, striking arrangement when they’re all grouped together.

And finally: If you want to try this look and have trouble finding white pumpkins (or just think they’re too expensive, which they can be), you can always spray-paint regular old orange ones or faux craft-store pumpkins.
