Decorating your front porch can be a fun project to take on during the fall season. There is only so much you can do with your yard as the weather begins to cool off, but the decor options for your front porch are seemingly endless. This review discusses several fall decoration ideas for your front porch.
4 Fall Decoration ideas for your front porch
There are numerous ways to decorate your front porch for the fall season. We recommend using fall-specific decor items such as pumpkins and plaid throw pillows, along with lanterns for lighting. You can also place hay bales, scarecrows and other common accessories that are considered to be more appropriate during the fall season. The following is an in-depth review of our four favorite decoration ideas for your front porch this fall season.
Pumpkins, lanterns, and flowers for a warm and inviting feel
There is nothing that says fall is upon more than pumpkins, lanterns, and colorful flowers. This is an easy and affordable way to add a fall feel to your front porch. This guide has some great flower choices to consider that work well for the fall season. Lanterns, rather than porch lights, are a much more fall-appropriate option as well.
Front porch furniture with plaid pillows and blankets for throws
You can do a lot with front porch furniture during the fall season. Implementing two comfortable chairs and a table on your front porch is a great option. Be sure to add fall elements to the furniture set, such as plaid throw pillows and quilts. You can also add a lantern on the table and a book nearby. The weather is typically warm enough during the early and middle parts of the fall for you and your family to sit outside and enjoy the cool weather.
Turn the front porch into your back porch with a fire pit
This is a much bolder idea than the previous two, and it works better for larger porches than for smaller ones. However, you can turn your front porch into the perfect place for a bonfire. This particularly works well for later in the fall season when the weather starts to become cold. Be sure to remember to bring plenty of marshmallows and chocolates to roast by the back porch fire pit. However, it is strongly recommended not to place your fire pit directly under the porch, especially if you have a low roof on your porch.
Prepare your front porch for the Fall holidays with a Thanksgiving theme
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and decorating your porch with festive decor items such as a scarecrow, an orange colored wreath, and pumpkins can give your front porch a true Thanksgiving feel. Be sure to use Thanksgiving colors, especially orange. You can also use hay bales, rather than traditional front porch tables, to hold your pumpkins, photos, and other decor items to give it even more of a true fall feeling.
