Fall Decorating Ideas –
Get Your Front Porch Ready for The Fall Season!

The official start of fall is nearly upon us! While some of us may be sad to see the summer end, there’s always a fun and stylish lining: it’s time to decorate your front porch or outdoor living space for the fall. We’ve collected the “best of the web” for you to enjoy as you contemplate bringing the outside of your home into the fall season!

Outdoor Fall Decorating Idea #1: Use a “fall-themed” wreath to decorate your front door.

An autumn-themed wreath can add a pop of color and bring a seasonal flair to your front porch. Here are a few standouts (just click the image to view more details about these fall wreaths!).

Outdoor Fall Decorating Idea #3: Change over your plants and planters to reflect the fall.

Even though fall is coming soon, there’s still plenty of time left to plant fall foliage. Hardy flowers in fall colors and autumn-hardy plants can help your outdoor space change with the seasons. Worried that your flowers will be short-lived due to the oncoming fall weather? Don’t be! Many garden centers offer annual flowers at a steep discount in August – making these bright, cheery plants a great investment!
