Here is another cupboard idea from Jenn. It is more rustic and traditional, but the tone is set by the cupboard itself.

Pumpkins are the go-to fall decor accents, but if you think them too predictable it’s best to opt for something else like tableware and maize.
For a tasteful look, contain natural elements in vases and decorative bowls. Create a single focal point of your mantel decor instead of a few. It doesn’t necessarily have to be fall-themed either.
