Not every fall retail display has to have a Halloween inspired vibe. With a gorgeous color palette of yellows, oranges, and reds, it’s easy to create a stunning fall look for your store. Plus, the bountiful harvest aesthetic means that you can pack every nook and cranny with awesome products. Which one of these DIY fall retail display ideas is best for your store?
Most Classic: Elegant Hanging Leaves
Every year this is the most used fall display idea, and for good reason: it looks great! Choose your spin on this look by sourcing synthetic leaves from a craft store, collecting them in nature, or creating them out of a different material entirely like paper.
The red/orange/yellow ombre looks good in any store, and this decor utilizes a great design trick: it fills a lot of empty space with only a few garlands.
Most Elegant: Hay & Wheat
For a super sophisticated look, try your hand at bundles of monochrome hay and wheat decor. This neutral color palette is great if you want to be impactful without being too loud. Bonus points if your hay and wheat are stored in an interesting and on theme container.
Most Maximalist: Rustic
If you love the look of overstuffed shelves and drawers, this is for you. Pick an accent color or two, and start stuffing! This look also works great if your shelving already has a boho or vintage vibe.
Easiest: Pumpkin Everything!
No produce better represents fall than a pumpkin! Depending on your area, pumpkins, squashes and gourds can be found in a wide variety for pretty cheap. As soon as you start stacking and arranging them, your shop will be transformed into a fall experience.
Freshest Look: Living Plants
If you want to go fully over the top, jam packing your display full of living plants is a show stopper. Anything that has orange and red pops will still read fall, and if you love crafting this high maintainance look is sure to turn heads.
Frasier Award (Best Spinoff): Ombre using Non-Leaves
If you have ombre in your heart but don’t want to deal with leaves, find a substitute and get coordinating! The examples below show that petals, roses, and even geometric shapes can be turned into extremely elegant and impactful retail displays.
