Dave and I discovered quite an array of decorative items for both your porch and home this fall season. We were pleasantly surprised at the variety of aesthetically pleasing decorations that can easily be incorporated into your decorating scheme. Here's but one example we thought you'd enjoy, autumn designed pillow covers to use inside or out!

Incorporate These Three Components Into Your
Outdoor Fall Decorating Ideas

Use Color

Whether mixing colors or working with only one, use color abundantly to create massive appeal. Autumn isn't the time to add a splash here or there. Mary and I recommend you explore color this year and make a statement.

The autumn color palette offers a myriad of wonderful colors from which to choose. Purples, rusts, golds, yellows, oranges, deep greens, and browns can be used in your outdoor rugs, outdoor door mats, cushions, and decorating accessories.

On a budget? No worry, you can add color by using inexpensive painter's cloths (see Mary's pillow toppers in the Projects Section below). You can also purchase inexpensive paint remnants at your local home supply store.

Include Natural Elements

Add a bit of nature into your front porch or yard fall decorating scheme. Branches, corn husks, berries, and other materials can be easily added to planters, vases, etc., to enhance the overall appeal.

natural elements added into fall decorating array

Outdoor fall decorating is meant for natural elements like wicker, rattan, dried floral arrangements, and of course pumpkins, gourds, and corn stalks, that will enhance the overall look of your outdoor decor.

Wrap porch columns with corn stalks, raffia, or even straw. Embellish with colored ribbons in colors mentioned above.

Add Texture

Almost anything with depth will work, from old tools to a set of antlers. B e creative and use everyday items you may have in your home, garage, or attic.

And don't forget your plants; they can be added to almost any fall array. It need not cost you a thing!

Comfortable throws on your chairs or porch swing will keep you warm on those cool fall evenings. Use baskets filled with pumpkins and gourds for added effect.

Fall-themed napkins and cups with cider and cinnamon sticks make for fun times on your fall porch. Use fall garland around your front door.
