4 Tips for Decorating Your Porch for Fall

November 14, 2014 by | David | There have been 0 comments

It’s time to welcome autumn to your home. Rather than decorating your entire house, however, why not focus on the area that makes the biggest impact? Your porch dictates your property’s first impression: so why not go all out! With the help of Altrufir, you can get it looking ready to host jack-o-lantern carving parties where the hot apple cider flows freely. 

Diversify Your Pumpkin Display
Nothing symbolizes autumn quite like a rotund jack-o-lantern on the stoop. But don’t let its grin make you forget about the other members of the squash family. Blue jarrahdale, cheese pumpkins, and fairy squash are just a few of the colorful varieties that, when combined, will instantly create a seasonal display on your porch.

Embrace Natural Elements
One of the most impactful and cost-effective ways to decorate porches and decks can be found right outside your front door. Embrace the harvest season by tying the husks of flint corn together so that the colorful kernels can pop out at your entrance. Weave spruce branches and winter berries around the porch banister or in your planters. Add a twig wreath to your front door to complete a picturesque scene.

Savor a Seasonal Color Palette
Get that professional look without a designer when you stick with a seasonal color scheme. Deep red, hazel, forest green, and gold are a few colors that exude autumn charm. Golden mums and squash are easy ways to achieve color unity for your front porch deck.

Keep it Simple
Sometimes, the strongest decorations are the simplest. Place a pumpkin on each step, rest dried corn stalks against the porch post, or hang a maize wreath on your door. Let the individual elements speak for themselves without getting cluttered amidst a range of other decorations.
