We tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen this time of year. Between baking seasonal treats, prepping Thanksgiving dinner, and every comfort meal in between, fall is a popular time to get cozy around food with loved ones.

If you love fall as much as we do, you'll want to be sure your kitchen is fully decorated and ready for the entertaining season. Bring out the pumpkin décor, fall-themed cookware, and holiday appliances—it's time to go all out and embrace the season. Here are some pieces of pumpkin-themed fall kitchen décor we think are worth adding to your cart to make the most out of autumn.

1. Le Creuset's pumpkin cocotte

Le Creuset's Pumpkin Cocotte is here just in time for cozy dinner parties.

Who can resist a piece of cookware that doubles as a seasonal centerpiece and high end dutch oven? Certainly not us. Iconic French cookware brand Le Creuset launched its first pumpkin cocotte this year, following the lead of brands like Staub in years past.

This enameled cast iron pot is made with the same high quality materials as the brand's traditional dutch ovens, so you can rely on its trademark heat distribution, stick-resistant interior, and long-term durability.

It's great for those cold-weather soups, pot roasts, homemade bread loaves, and pumpkin-flavored desserts. Plus, it comes in three colors to best match your kitchen's aesthetic: Sea salt, meringue, and persimmon.

2. Dash's pumpkin-shaped waffle maker

This little appliance can turn your breakfast into a photo-ready experience.

Picture this: It's a crisp Saturday morning in the fall, a Halloween movie marathon just started, and you're sipping pumpkin spice coffee with homemade pumpkin waffles. Does it get any better than that?

Dash's pumpkin-shaped mini waffle maker takes you one step closer to that reality. This highly rated appliance is perfect for making small batches of waffles, and it's small enough to stash away after regular use.

Plus, it can do more than just waffles: Try it with homemade hash browns, cookies or, even, chaffles (a low-carb option made with cheese and eggs) to make every fall meal feel a little more festive.

Dinner always feels extra special with designated napkin rings.

For those special occasion dinners that seem more common this time of year—Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, and the like—you'll want your dining room table dressed to impress.

These little pumpkin-shaped napkin rings are an easy way to upgrade your table décor. They make it easy to serve dinner with fancy cloth napkins—like these fall botanical napkins—without having to take up napkin origami.

Take your pie game to the next level with this high quality (and adorable) pie dish.

A dessert rendition of the pumpkin cocotte, this dish is the dream vessel for all your seasonal pies during the fall months. It features the same durable stoneware that Le Creuset is known for, and it retains heat evenly for crispy crusts and perfectly browned bottoms.

It comes in the same three colors as the cocotte, so you can coordinate if you decide to take the leap with both.

$125 at Sur La Table

5. A pumpkin-shaped board for charcuterie

Your fall grazing spread is only as good as the board it's served on.

What's a holiday dinner without a cheese board? (Not anything we want to be invited to.)

This pumpkin serving board was handcrafted in Hungary with pieces of reclaimed wood. It has a rustic yet modern look, with a white surface and strips of oak that help prevent warping. It's great for serving cheese and charcuterie, desserts or other snacks.

6. A harvest-themed loaf pan

This pan will make your loaves (almost) too pretty to eat.

The only thing better than a fresh, homemade loaf of pumpkin bread is a homemade loaf of pumpkin bread with a seasonal design.

This 6-cup pan will transform your everyday pumpkin loaf, pound cake or banana bread into an autumnal masterpiece. It features a nonstick coating and cast aluminum build that provides evenly baked results, easy releasing, and a headache-free cleanup.

$33 at Amazon

7. A pumpkin-shaped beverage dispenser

Fall-themed sangria, anyone? If you're hosting a Halloween party—or any other fall gathering this year—you'll need a vessel to keep the drinks flowing. Because we can do better than single-use cans of beer and seltzer!

This glass dispenser has a charming pumpkin design that's inviting and convenient for guests. It's large enough to fit two gallons worth of cocktails (or apple cider), and it's dishwasher safe for easy post-party cleanup.
