Seasonal touches make your porch a more inviting spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Here are fall decorating ideas that add instant curb appeal and get your space ready for the harvest season.
1. Decorate with Fall Colors
A wreath and garland on your front door is a quick way to transition from summer to autumn. They draw attention to your entryway and create a warm welcome for guests.
Choose foliage in red, yellow, orange, and brown to get a classic look. For added drama, use accents in complementing colors like white, purple, or blue.
2. Display Cozy Textures
Rearrange your porch furniture for lounging and cozy gatherings. Add cushioned seats or a rocking chair, then lay out plaid pillows and throw blankets. These make your porch more inviting and keep you warm when evenings get chilly.
3. Use Pumpkins and More Pumpkins
Cluster pumpkins of different shapes and sizes on the floor, a table, or even your porch steps. Arrange them with green foliage, corn stalks, and hay bales to create a harvest-themes display.
4. Accessorize with What You Have
Add interesting details to your display with things you have lying around. Mix and match pieces that fit your decorating theme, such as potted plants and a watering can set on a wooden ladder. Turn a crate upside-down and use it as a side table. Or, fill a bushel basket with a mix of pumpkins and apples.
5. Show Off Your Decor
Place decorations where they’re visible but not in the way of people passing. Highlight your front door and steps with potted topiaries or stacked pumpkins. Arrange decorations in uniform order for a cleaner look or mix them up to add whimsical flair.
6. Place Warm Lights for Cool Nights
String warm LED lights over your porch to create a welcoming ambience. Pre-lit wreaths and garlands work, too. When dining al fresco, set the scene for a warm atmosphere with candles on tables and lanterns on the ground.
Set up an outdoor fire pit to warm your as evenings get colder. This creates a perfect spot for bonding moments with the family while toasting marshmallows and telling stories around the fire.
