6 Must-Have Props for Easy Autumn Window Displays

Autumn is almost here, and shops around the UK are already planning the switch up in their window displays. It’s time to put the beach balls and BBQ’s back into storage and opt for something a little cosier!

If you haven’t even thought about your autumn retail window dressing, don’t panic – our team at VM Design have got you covered. We’ve put together 6 of our essential props that you can add to any display for an easy Autumnal look.

Colourful Leaves

Not much says Autumn like the changing colours of the leaves, and adding a bunch to your display will instantly make it more seasonal. Shades of light brown, deep orange, and warm gold are a must. We’d advise ditching real leaves though as they’ll start to decompose pretty quickly, which never looks great in a window! Instead, opt for paper alternatives.

Wood and Bark

Bring the outdoors inside with a touch of wood or bark, reflecting on Autumnal walks through the forest. You can use logs as replacement tables to show off your products or create arches of twigs under which your shop’s items take centre stage. Get inventive – there’s a whole lot you can do with them!

Plenty of Pumpkins

Get into the spirit of Autumn and Halloween with pumpkins. No matter what your display is, adding a few, well-placed pumpkins is a simple way to get that autumnal feeling. You can leave them as they are, carve them for a spooky Halloween vibe, or even paint them in different colours to match your brands aesthetic.

Little Acorns

Sticking with the woodland theme, acorns are a lovely addition to a shop window display. Scatter them around your products, or hang them from see-through string from the ceiling, creating a cascade of little acorns.

Autumnal Animals

Whether you use cute stuffed owls, realistic models, or silhouettes painted onto the glass of your window, animals are great for an instant autumnal feel. Hedgehogs, foxes, and owls are all very seasonal, and black cats are wonderful for Halloween themed displays.

Colour and Texture

If you’ve left your retail window dressing until the very last minute and need to add something Autumnal quickly, think about the colours and textures you’re using. Showcase products that are in deep red, orange, and brown hues, and use thicker materials and chunky textures.
