Everyone's favorite season is finally here.

OK, so some of us love fall and some people want to chuck their pumpkin spice lattes on the next person who posts another pumpkin muffin recipe, but for those of us who fall firmly in the #fallforever camp, I can't help but dream up a few new ways to make my house festive for my favorite season.

1. Pumpkins & gourds

This sign from Angtiques pretty much sums up the reason for the season. (Angtiques/Etsy, $45)

2. This banner

Give thanks to creative people who make gorgeous Thanksgiving banners so I don't have to. (OneTinyHeart/Etsy, $17)

3. One perfect pillow

A throw pillow is my favorite way to do the lazy mom's seasonal decorating. On a related note, serious question: Is there ever a point when one has too many pillows? Asking for a friend. (janes2daughters/Etsy, $10)

4. A genius reversible sign

I love the idea of going from fall to winter by just flipping over this sign. Because honestly, that's how fast it will feel like the holidays are here anyways. (WhiteAspen Studio/Etsy, $23)

So maybe edible cupcake toppers aren't exactly decorations, but I can pretty much guarantee that they will instantly spruce up any home. Preferably mine so I can eat them. (TopCupcake/Etsy, $8)

8. A festive table runner

Do I ever host elaborate, home-cooked dinner parties? Nope. But a festive table runner never hurt anyone, you know what I'm saying? (fourbugsinarug/Etsy, $15)

9. Autumnal inspiration
