Simple Autumn Decorating Tips
Easily decorate your porch steps for autumn with a bushel basket, a leaf garland and a big beautiful mum. How easy is that. And it looks spectacular on these porch steps.
Frame your garden arbor with cornstalks and pumpkins. A pretty autumn scene - without a big investment or fussing. Just simple and beautiful! The summer flowers still add splashes of color.

It really makes for a nice conversation piece too. Speaking of using color, check out Tress's autumn decorated porch project below.

Although subtle, the leaves add lots of appeal to an otherwise typical autumn decorations. Also note the color and variety of pumpkins and gourds which makes this an aesthetically pleasing arrangement.
No matter your fall arrangement, there is usually something extra you can add that brings it all together. We have a myriad of fall photos throughout our autumn decorating section, so take note of the "extras" you might see.

Must be a delight to relax on their back porch.
Deb tells us that she uses old tablecloths for her cushion covers. No sewing - she just safety pins them on the underside of the cushions and changes them out 5-6 times a year.

Decorate with Plants and FlowersYou can easily arrange your existing plants like in the photo above to create a most curb appealing approach to your front porch.
Intermingle gourds or pumpkins (remember the details we discussed above) to give it the autumn touch.
Don't forget you can paint the pots in fall colors too, for even more appeal!
Pumpkins corn stalks decorate front door to house.
Nothing gets us in the spirit like pumpkins and cornstalks to decorate your front door and porch. Cornstalks are relatively inexpensive to purchase and pumpkins are usually fairly abundant in the fall.
You don't have to encircle every porch column.
Experiment to see exactly what works best on your front porch. Often times, creating a display around just one column will work perfectly.
Mary and I like the idea of investing in faux pumpkins as a cost savings method.
Although initially more expensive, they will last for many years. Wished we would have remembered it this year. Ugh!
You can paint or decorate them over and over as well. (Purchase them at the end of the season to save even more).
