Depending on where you live, it might still be too warm for chunky knits and tall boots—but that doesn't mean you can't get your home ready for fall. We're all about low-lift swaps that will make your space a little cozier without breaking the bank. Think: trading in fresh blooms for dried wreaths and arrangements in muted, moodier colorways, swapping out breezy linens for heftier materials like flannel or corduroy and peppering in plenty of pieces that pay homage to autumnal motifs (pumpkin garland, anyone?). As for where to find these affordable fall decor items, we're turning to Target to help us ease into the new season in style.

From jewel-toned kitchenware you'll rely on for holiday baking to festive tabletop accents that make entertaining easy, these 30 picks are already in our shopping cart. (And yes, there are even a few candles for those whose fall decor is not complete without some pumpkin spice.)
