Autumn Window Display Ideas

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons. The weather starts to cool down, leaves are changing colours, and temperatures are perfect for more cosy activities. You might also picture pumpkins and the trees leaves turning orange. Whatever comes to mind when you hear the words "autumn" and "fall", know there are plenty of ways to incorporate these elements into your window display this season.

If you’re looking for ways to bring the beauty of autumn into your space, then you’ve come to the right place! Here are some ideas on how to design an autumn window display that will be sure to impress.

How to Create an Autumn Display

When designing an autumn window display you may want to use natural materials such as leaves, twigs, pinecones and other flora from outdoors. Using real plants instead of fake ones adds a bit of realism and authenticity to your display.

Bring the Outside, Inside

If you want to create a window display that will immediately let passers-by know that autumn has arrived, try using plants, flowers or other organic materials.

Leaves are not only beautiful with their autumnal colours but they can also be used to create an attractive display too. You can make them into arrangements on their own or use them as decorative accents for other displays.

Use twigs and branches to create a tree inside the window, with leaves attached to them. If making an arrangement of branches isn't possible due to space constraints, try hanging them from the ceiling instead

You may even be able to collect foliage and branches from your own garden! Not only is this a cheap and inexpensive way of creating a display, it's also much more eco-conscious than purpose buying autumnal decorations.  

Warm Colours

The next step in creating an autumn window display is choosing warm colours like reds and oranges. This will help create a cosy atmosphere while also adding a pop of colour against all the browns and golds outside during this time of year. Combine a selection of orange, red and yellow to create a striking display.

Wood is Good

Woods are often used to create a rustic or natural feel. This can be achieved by using wood grain and knots for texture, and by varying the colours of various types of wood. 

There are multiple kinds of wood that you can use for your autumn window display: oak, maple, pine... just to name a few! Each kind has its own unique characteristics that should be considered before deciding on what type will best fit your theme. You should also consider how much texture will be added by the different types of knots in each piece (and whether these add value or detract from).

Keep It Classic

Halloween and Pumpkins are autumnal classics. Use them to create a focal point, whether it's where you're placing them or how you display them. Vary the sizes and shapes of your pumpkins. The more variety you have, the better! Make sure that they're different sizes and shapes. For example, if want to use smaller ones on top of larger ones, then go ahead!

Drama and Light

You can also use lighting to highlight certain aspects of a product or create drama with shadows and lighting effects. While warm white lights will give your display a cosy feel and LED battery operated fairy lights are a great way of achieving this.

Give It Some Space

Space is one of the most important elements in a window display. 

Too much space? No problem: fill your windows with an abundance of items and accessories. Just remember to keep them organised so they don't look too crowded or messy. However, if there's not enough space on your windows, it's better to leave spaces blank than to cram in too many things.


And so, with a little bit of planning and a lot of creativity, your autumn window display can be as beautiful as the changing leaves outside. We hope you enjoyed this post and found some inspiration. If you have any more ideas, please leave them below in the comments.
