Make the most of the crisp, autumn weather by creating inviting spaces outside your home. Welcome the beauty of the harvest season with easy outdoor fall décor ideas to spruce up your porch, patio, yard, and fire pit.
1. SHOWCASE FALL COLORS WITH BEAUTIFUL FOLIAGE
Create a vibrant display with FALL FOLIAGE featuring rich shades of yellow, red, orange, and brown. If you want something subtle, choose neutral-toned fall greenery. Crisp whites matched with muted orange, green, and brown make a sophisticated fall color palette.
Draw attention to your entryway by displaying a fall garland and wreath on your front door. This is a quick way to transition from summer to autumn. It instantly creates a warm welcome for guests. Make a statement with minimal effort by using the same type of garland or wreath as the centerpiece for your al fresco table setting. Apart from these popular fall porch décor, dress up exterior spaces with potted mums, TOPIARIES, and artificial fall flower arrangements. Choose ones that match your color scheme.
2. DISPLAY COZY TEXTURES
Natural elements such as wood, woven materials, and metal give your outdoor space a rustic feel. Softer textures like thick-knitted wool or flannel blankets make for a cozier atmosphere.
Rearrange your outdoor furniture for comfortable lounging. Add cushioned seats or a rocking chair, then lay out some pillows, chunky throws, and plaid blankets. These make your outdoor spaces more inviting and keep you warm on chilly evenings.
3. USE PUMPKINS AND MORE
Pumpkins are an essential part of outdoor fall décor. Highlight your front door, steps, and pathways with clusters of pumpkins in different shapes, sizes, and textures. Stack them on the floor, a bench, or a table. ARTIFICIAL ONES last you all season through Halloween.
Arrange pumpkin décor together with your fall foliage, corn stalks, and hay bales to create a harvest-themed display. Create your own pumpkin patch at home with a variety of gourds and greenery.
4. ACCESSORIZE WITH WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE
Add interesting details to your fall porch and yard décor with things you have lying around. Mix and match pieces that fit your decorating theme, such as a rustic bucket or watering can filled with dried stalks. Turn a crate upside-down and use it as a side table. Fill a bowl with an assortment of autumn leaves and use it as a centerpiece. Or fill a basket with a mix of pumpkins and apples.
5. USE WARM LIGHTS FOR COOL NIGHTS
Create a cozy autumn atmosphere with the right type of lighting. An easy way to liven up your fall display is to use pre-lit wreaths, garlands, pumpkins, or twig trees.
Give your patio a welcoming ambience with warm LED lights. These illuminate up your evening gatherings. When dining al fresco, create an enchanting table setting with LED CANDLES AND LANTERNS. Flameless LED candles radiate the same glow of real candlelight. There’s no need to worry about the mess of wax drippings or hazard of an open flame.
Set up an outdoor fire pit to warm things up as evenings get colder. This creates the perfect setting for bonding moments with the family. Make them even more memorable by toasting marshmallows and telling stories around the fire.
