We've reached the point in summer where I spend my days dreaming about crisp fall days, falling leaves, and carving pumpkins. And it looks like the holiday team at Target has the same idea because they just released this year's Halloween collection (even though yes, it's still July). But no matter how hot the weather is outside, I've been busy adding these gorgeous fall pieces to my shopping cart. And if you have plans to stock up on Halloween decor this year, you'll want to do it ASAP. The preorders for Target's new pumpkins, skeletons, and fall decor items are already selling out.

Not to worry: If you have your heart set on decorating with an item that's sold out, all the products will be back in stock mid-August. If you have the Target app, you can opt for reminders about when the item is back in stock, so you can be the first one to grab it when it becomes available.

If you're not quite sure what to add to your cart first, here are a few of my favorite new decor items to help you get started.

Sweater Pumpkins

I look forward to sweater season all year, so this fall I won't just be wearing them, but decorating with them too! The classic pumpkin shape will fit right in with your chic Halloween decor, but it's neutral enough to display for the whole fall season. The new collection feature so many adorable decorative pumpkins, you won't be able to choose just one! This tweed option comes in orange, charcoal, and cream.

Pumpkin Fairy Garden

If you already have traditional fairy gardens in the back yard, use this as an excuse to add a pumpkin-shaped one to our decor scheme. This four-piece garden set comes with a 7-inch hollow black pumpkin and three miniature figures to place inside, and it just $13 for the bundle. Place this on your mantel or use it to decorate a bookshelf ahead of the holiday season.

Decorative Jar

Create a spooky table-side vignette or a festive Halloween centerpiece with this clear plastic cloche. It's neutral enough to use for regular fall decorations (it can transition into Thanksgiving decor, too!), so you can swap out the decor pieces displayed under the jar all season long. The jar retails for just $10, but both this large size and matching Small Cloche ($8) are sold out of the preorder. So if you'd like to add this item to your holiday display, you'll need to opt in to be notified when the item is officially released.

Buy It: Clear Plastic Cloche, $10

White Jack-o'-Lantern

This friendly jack-o'-lantern doesn’t require any carving or scooping out pumpkin guts, which is a win in our book. This smiling face can be displayed indoors or outdoors, and it runs on batteries so you don't have to worry about trying to placing near an outlet. At 16 inches, it's taller than most real pumpkins but costs just $15.

Neon Pumpkin Light

Just in case there isn't a full moon illuminating the sky on October 31, Target has neon lights to give your Halloween decor an instant glow up. The bright decor comes in a variety of festive characters, including this orange pumpkin, a purple bat ($10), and a white ghost ($10). If you can't choose between the designs, purchase a few to create a fun display for your Halloween mantel or front porch.

Floral Halloween Garland

This not-so-scary Halloween decor will add a touch of holiday cheer to your mantel, doorway, or workspace. Display this on its own or use it to accent another Halloween garland you already have for an ultra-festive look. This six-foot garland is made up of artificial flowers and leaves in traditional Halloween hues, so it's pretty enough to be used in a classy decor scheme, but can also be used to accent bright and scary decor too.
