If summer is for entertaining, then fall is for getting cozy – and, much like fall fashion, the best porch décor is all about layering. From cozy sweaters and soft flannels to apple pie and pumpkin spice, Williamsburg Wicker Patio & Home can help you capture all the fall feels with these expert decorating tips for your front porch, deck or patio.
Pick Your Own
We can hardly mention fall without thinking about pumpkins and gourds, but apples also make an elegant fall decoration. Place a bushel beside your front door, scatter them on tables alongside mini pumpkins and gourds, or use faux apples to decorate a grapevine wreath.
Mums the Word
Chrysanthemums are the quintessential fall flower, both because they are hardy enough to last all season long and because they come in a variety of fall hues. Add a pop of natural color to your porch, patio or deck with potted mums or hanging baskets.
Instead of turning on overhead porch lights, use lanterns or string lights to create a warm glow on those crisp fall nights. Strategically place lanterns of various sizes on either side of your front door, on top of tables, and on stairs for both lighting and aesthetics.
Step it Up
If your décor is feeling one-dimensional, use hay bales or vintage crates to create depth. Place pumpkins, mums, lanterns and other fall décor in front of and on top of bales and crates for added visual appeal, or, if your porch has wide enough steps, try stair-stepping your décor.
Snug as a Bug
Outdoor rugs really help tie a space together, but they also instantly warm up your porch or patio. Consider placing an elegant fall plaid beneath a welcome mat that reads, “It’s Fall Y’all”, or layering a black and white checkered rug with bright red braided rugs in the shape of apples.
Nice and Cozy
Create a warm and inviting seating area by adding textured blankets and pillows in a variety of fall colors and patterns to outdoor furniture and porch swings. You can even drape a blanket scarf over your hay bale, or wrap one around pumpkins and other décor to give your display movement.
