Fall is just around the corner so now is the perfect time to transform your porch into a cozy place to enjoy cooler autumn days. Decorating for fall is a lot of fun! Your front porch is one of the most significant places to update to fall décor, as holiday visitors return and trick-or-treaters come calling.
Creating a beautiful, fall-themed porch can be a little overwhelming. Between decorations and color schemes, it can be difficult to decide. If you are looking for some ideas to decorate for fall, you have come to the right place. Let us show you 5 ways to get your porch ready for fall.
Pumpkins are the quintessential symbol of all things fall-related! Ranging from bright orange to white, there will always be pumpkins to suit your style and décor needs. Mix and match large and small pumpkins to create a classic “pumpkin patch” look.
Gourds and other squashes, such as acorn squash, also look fantastic in fall décor. The Pinehurst Pumpkin by Pomeroy Collection is a great addition to any porch. Mix and match natural pumpkins with this faux pumpkin for an interesting fall look.
Warm Color Palette
The world around us naturally transforms in fall, and autumn leaves give us a cue as to what colors we should include in our color scheme. Traditional fall colors such as warm yellows, oranges, tans, and reds are ideal colors to include in your fall décor.
Other colors to consider are whites, off-whites, metallic, and jewel tones. The key is to create a warm, inviting place to enjoy.
Hang A Wreath
Wreaths are not just for Christmas. Fall is the perfect time to showcase a harvest wreath on your porch. Wreaths can be made from natural or faux foliage, leaves, and decorative touches, or a mixture of both.
Opt for wreaths with bright fall flowers and browns. Friends and family will feel welcomed by the lovely front door touch. You can purchase a premade wreath or make one on your own.
Chalkboards bring a touch of nostalgia to any décor set up. You always remember fall and going back to school. Writing on the chalkboard was one of the most fun things to do in school!
Chalkboards come in a variety of styles and can be propped up on easels for a quirky feel. You can create your own messages and personalize your space. A simple, “Welcome” written in your own writing is downright heartfelt and gracious. You can change up the messages for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and any day in between with the Wendy Chalk Board by Cooper Classics
Cozy It Up
Fall’s crisp days and evenings call for some warm and cozy time. Throw a few flannel blankets or throws on your bench, chair, or swing. Add some decorative pillows in fall colors to create a comfy oasis to drink hot apple cider and munch on apple cider donuts, candy corn, and freshly popped popcorn.
Some great patterns for fall include plaids, leaves, pumpkins, and florals. Solid colors also look great in fall décor. The Affinity Knit Throw by Safavieh is perfect to stay warm on cool nights. This dark grey cotton woven throw blends craft art and contemporary style for a versatile look.
