As the summer heat fades and the colder season sets in, it's the perfect time to brighten your desk with the colors of Fall. Push aside your boring nameplate, your everyday pencil holder, and your summer-smelling candles. Everyone knows Halloween ghosts and Thanksgiving pumpkins are far superior to boring old brass anyday.

We’re here to help you jazz up your office space with fun fall decor. We’ve chosen our favorite desk decorations to help you transform your spot at work into a the fall day of your dreams. Just be careful, your space might become the office photo opp!

1. Tiny Festive Figurines

These miniature pumpkins are both adorably small and spookily inexpensive. They’ll give you that fall feeling without overcrowding your workspace. If you don’t like pumpkin spice everything, opt for these tiny ghosts instead.

2. Skull Plant Holder

Tap into your spooky side with this skull plant holder. Fill it with an air plant or turn your office into a campfire with a scented s’mores candle. Perfect for both Halloween and fall.

3. “The Witch Is In” Nameplate

What could be more fitting for Halloween? This time of year is probably the only time you can call yourself “that witch” while at work. Replace your boring, everyday nameplate with this festive announcement. Then, leave it up all year round if you’re truly feeling carefree.

5. Autumn Mouse Pad

Put your plain black mouse pad in the drawer for the next few months and replace it with this perfectly fall patterned mouse pad. It’s not Halloween-specific, meaning you can keep it up until Thanksgiving. Or heck, keep it up until Christmas! I'm not judging.
