Fall is more than a season, it is a feeling that takes over all your senses. For some of us, it’s the cool crisp breeze, crunching leaves beneath your feet, the smell of pumpkin spice in the air, the cozy & cute blankets to keep warm, and the taste of hot caramel apple cider. For others, it can be the chilling wind at night before the sounds of a scary horror movie, entwined in cotton webs while decorating, the taste of candy corn, and the smell of a haunted-themed candle. In many cases, autumn can encompass their entire personality. Admittedly, Paper Source is home to many of these people.
To celebrate this year, we have divided our Autumn Personalities into four categories that our team is simply falling for this upcoming season. Take it or leaf it.
- Whimsical Goth
- Halloween Clutter-Core
- Harvest Hostess
- Cozy Cottage-Core
Find out about what each of these Autumn Personalities and their favorite seasonal product picks are below:

Anna is absolutely falling for the:
Tarot Journal: Reading tarot is a daily ritual for me, and I love to keep track of readings so I can look back and reflect on themes during different phases of my life. This journal is gorgeous and provides a lot of great how-to pages for beginner tarot readers or more experienced readers looking for new ideas.
Skull String Lights: One thing about me is that I never like using the big light. I look for garlands and lamps with a bit of whimsy to add personality to my space, and I love these skull lights for the fall season!
Magic in Your Bones Tote Bag: You can never have enough tote bags, especially when they’re covered with a beautiful whimsical design! Whether I’m out shopping or taking work on the go, a tote bag like this is the perfect accessory.
Roni Laity, your Halloween Clutter-Core personality.
Roni is definitely falling for the:
Haunted House Advent Calendar: I love the idea of taking something from another Holiday and making it Halloween. The art on this is so great and has so many fun details. I also love the pops of purple and the little ghost is so cute.
Ghost Mug: Did I need another Halloween mug? No. But how could I pass up this cute little ghost? I love that it has little hands and the cutest face. Also, its a pretty big mug so it will hold a lot, even soup. The handle is nice and big so you don’t have to worry about burning your fingers when you hold this.
DIY Miniature House Kit- Dark Castle: This has so many details and so much dimension its crazy. This was such a joy to build and I love that it lights up. It brings such charm to my bookshelf. This will definitely be staying up all year long.

Megan is completely falling for the:
Harvest Tea Towel & Spoon: I love this set because it functions as both a kitchen necessity and cozy Fall decor. The tea towel is great for pulling cookies out of the oven and for adding a decorative moment to the kitchen. The spoon is also perfect for baking year-round!
Wine Bottle Apron & Chef Hat: This is my FAVORITE because not only is it adorable, but it makes for a great hostess gift and is a fun conversation starter. It makes for the perfect centerpiece to any kitchen table or bar cart.
Fall Pumpkins & Foliage Wreath Craft Kit: I love this craft kit because each element can stand on its own and doesn’t have to be made into a wreath. You might not have fall foliage at your disposal outside so this is an easy way to make any tablescape feel more festive.
Simone Paton, your Cozy Cottage-Core personality.
I’m totally falling for the:
Racoon Ceramic Mug: I am a huge fan of collectible mugs and cozy critters. My decorating starts in ‘Augtober’ and lasts all the way through Thanksgiving. This mug was the perfect addition to my cabinet and coffee table.
Vanilla Chai Pumpkin Lidded Candle: The scent of this candle is exactly what you’re looking to fall for this season, but it’s the container that really ‘gets me’. I love a good upcycle and I know that as soon as I am done with its original use, I’m going to reuse the lidded pumpkin for some extra fall flair on my mantel.
Mushroom Tissue Garland: These iconic little toadstools are an adorable addition to your decor for the season or cottage-core tea parties. Mushroom hunting is my favorite part of a nature walk and now I get to keep these cuties across my autumn-inspired wall.
