Fall on the Front Porch
The time has come to welcome autumn into your home. With the rich colors of fall, decorating can be fun and beautiful. A perfect place to begin is at the entrance of your home.
Here are a few tips to creating a beautiful fall display on your front porch.
Choose a seasonal color palate: One way to create that designer look is to use the colors of the season. Utilizing natural fall colors like deep reds, oranges and golds will keep with the seasonal theme in tact. Add foliage for reds, pumpkins for oranges and wheat and burlap for golds.
Embrace natural elements: Nothing says autumn quite like a pumpkin on the porch, but don’t forget about other members of the squash family. Diversify your pumpkin display for a punch of color and surprise. Using natural elements such as pumpkins, hay bales, corn husks, and autumn foliage is a very cost effective way to elevate your fall decor. Add mums placed in tera cotta pots for a polished fall look.
Illuminate your entrance: Battery powered candles placed inside lanterns or paper bags with sand in the bottom create a cozy and beautiful fall ambiance to your entryway as the sun begins to set earlier in the afternoon.
Don’t forget about your front door: Your guests will feel welcome with a fall wreath hanging on a door and the look will finish the autumn porch display nicely. Great choices for fall include a wheat, straw, grapevine or burlap wreath. Add your own personal style with your favorite ribbon or bow! Adding a simple grapevine garland around the door is another way to add impact without breaking the budget.
