You could do this on your autumn porch!
Simply combine pretty mums and pumpkins on your porch steps. Leave room to walk. Instant autumn and charm. Then if you got hardy mums, you can plant them in your garden for color year after year (for most planting zones).

Ooooh! That red retro mailbox and wicker chair. Create this look...

How to get this look: Drape an attractive fall garland over your door and add a complementary wreath. Stencil "Welcome" on the front door for a most inviting touch.

Mary and I use an outdoor lamp and timer on our porch to create a sense of warmth for fall evenings. It's remarkable what a difference the soft lighting makes on our porch in the evenings.
