Fall Decorating in Full Swing
So let's look at some stylish fall decorating ideas that add a touch of elegance without breaking the bank or taking up your porch sitting time.
And then we give you suggestions (with some product links) that will help you replicate the look of these pretty porches.
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.

Add your family's initial to personalize your fall door

Quaint and charming autumn decorated porch
Drape two pieces of inexpensive fall fabric along with autumn berry garland on the back of a bench, add a bright red cushion,
and hang outdoor artwork on your porch to create a most welcoming seasonal array.
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.
