Outside Fall Decoration Ideas
Pumpkin Vase: The ultimate piece of fall flair, pumpkins serve as the most stylish vases for your front step. Carve out a pumpkin or gourd (white ones look great, too) and place containers of your favorite fall flowers inside, whether warm-colored mums, pansies, or more.
Cotton & Muted Colors: Adorning your front door with fall-themed decor is nothing new, but this season, it’s all about light, serene colors. Whether you’re a sucker for a good wreath, pumpkins on your step, or trendy lanterns and candle holders, opt for more subtle hues like cotton to create an ethereal front-door vibe.
Fruit Bowl: Adding a seasonal touch to your relaxing porch just makes it that much cozier. Incorporate the sweetness of fall into your favorite space with warm-colored fruits like apples and pears. Find a beautiful bowl — copper is always fall-approved — and fill it with the season’s natural gems.
DIY Wreath: Do you fall head over heels for a seasonal DIY project? You’re going to want to make a new wreath every week… These festive wreaths incorporate things like plaid, fall fruit, flowers, harvest wheat, eucalyptus, puzzle pieces, pinecones, letter boards, hydrangea, autumn berries, and much more.
Door Mat: There’s no better time than fall to place a fun and festive mat at your door. Whether you go for a spooky-themed piece for trick-or-tricking or a timeless autumn design, your family and friends will love walking up to your door as they visit you this season.
Pumpkin Cart: Bar carts may be all the rage inside your home (is it time to break out the delicious autumnal red wines yet?) but pumpkin carts are making their way to the outside. This porch-front bar cart is given a new look when it’s filled with an autumnal crate and green oak leaves between beautiful white pumpkins.
Barrel Planters: Fall flowers and textures create a lovely vibe in your yard that make coming home even sweeter. Barrel planters give off a rustic aesthetic that pairs perfectly with yellow, orange, and red flowers. Try several planters of different sizes, and get creative with your flower arrangement.
From all of us at Frank Betz Associates, happy fall and happy decorating!
