Decorate Your Dorm For Fall

The leaves are changing color, the air is getting cooler (kind of, right?), and the pumpkin spice latte has finally returned to the Starbucks menu. You know what that means… Fall is coming! School is officially back in session and if you’re living in a dorm, you’re probably looking for ways to make it feel more festive. Dorm restrictions can be tough, but there are so many décor options that fit the dorm regulations! Here are a few ways to decorate your dorm for Fall.


  1. Pumpkins



Pumpkins are one of the easiest, go to fall decorations that you can purchase anywhere. Pumpkins look cute on windowsills, tables, desks, and more! Real ones can be used for decorating, carving, even baking. If you don’t have a place to get real pumpkins near your dorm, fake pumpkins look just as cute, especially ones with glitter!


  1. Wreaths

Wreaths are a dorm-friendly, easy way to bring the fall spirit into your space. You can gravitate towards nature-based wreaths, filled with colorful leaves and branches, or you could get a Halloween-themed wreath and bring the spooky vibe into your dorm.


  1. Flowers

I know flowers are more likely to be associated with Spring décor, but flowers are one of the simplest ways to decorate a room, and fall has some beautiful flower choices. Sunflowers start to bloom in September, and are the perfect way to add sunshine and happiness to a room. Though most people keep mums outside, a small bunch would be perfect for any table or desk to radiate fall vibes.


  1. Dishes



You’re probably thinking this is the most extra thing ever, but if you’re a true fall lover like myself, it is one of the easiest ways to incorporate a little fall into your dorm. Even eating gets to be festive, especially if delicious fall treats occupy this plate!
