As the crisp air rolls in, it’s time to bust out your broomstick – but not for costumes just yet! Give your front stoop a refreshing sweep and prepare to unwind on your brand-new porch during those brisk fall evenings. Read on for five ways to elevate your outdoor living spaces this season.
Lighting sets the mood and fall’s atmosphere is just right for a touch of moody charm. Arrange lanterns, vintage dishware and even buckets around your porch and fill them with the warm glow of tea lights or small candles. Create an air of autumn mystery by swapping your regular porch lights for bulbs in shades of orange, red and a dash of purple.
Relax and Reset
Autumn strikes the perfect balance – outdoor enjoyment without sweltering heat or chilly extremes. Create a haven of relaxation on your porch, complete with ample seating for everyone and extra-plush cushions boasting fall-inspired colors and patterns.
Pile up with Pumpkins
Celebrate the essence of fall with an array of pumpkins adorning your front steps. The staple of fall time decor, these iconic gourds come in diverse shapes, sizes and colors, allowing you to infuse your porch with limitless creative flair that’s sure to spark neighborhood chatter.
Recycle Summer Seasonals
Don’t say goodbye to your summer blooms – repurpose them! Embrace the subtle beauty of dried hydrangeas, amaranth and other summer flowers to craft exquisite wreaths and potted arrangements. When these flowers are dried, their faded hues seamlessly blend into the autumn festivities.
Don’t be Scared to get Spooky
Extend the thrill throughout the season for many’s favorite excuse to decorate: Halloween! Add delightfully spooky decor that dresses every corner of your porch. Fashion miniature bats from black construction paper and let them flutter along walls and doors. Populate your porch with cleverly dressed scarecrows standing guard over your street. The possibilities are endless!
