Decorate for Fall with Nature-Inspired Accessories
There are many easy ways to capture the spirit of the Fall season in your outdoor spaces – following are some great ideas:
Flowers and Plants
The easiest way to decorate outside is by adding fall flowers to your patio, porch and yard. Probably the most popular seasonal flower are Mums. Mums come in endless arrays of colors and look great on porches, outdoor tables and even planted in your garden. Update other containers with favorites such as ornamental peppers and kale.
And if you are a gardener, consider growing classic late-season plants such as calendula, purple fountain grass, nemesia, coral bells, sedum, sunflower, aster, ornamental kale, black-eyed Susan and pansies in beds around your house for dazzling fall color.
Forage materials from the wild, such as dried rushes, grasses, flowers, and berries; or harvest them from your own garden.
Decorate with corn stalks: Gather the stalks in bunches and tie them to porch posts with rustic jute or colorful ribbon.
Stack it up with hay bales: Feed stores or farm stands are a good source for hay bales. Stack them up and decorate with pumpkins, gourds, potted plants, and accessories.
Adorn with apples: Use those extra apples to adorn wreaths, garlands, and table centerpieces, or make them into unconventional candle holders.
Celebrate the harvest: Take advantage of the rich harvest season by dressing up the porch with pumpkins and gourds. Arrange along the steps, or embellish window boxes, railings, and tabletops.
Add finishing touches to your décor with things such as seasonal signs, door mats and outdoor rugs, solar lighting, blankets and pillows, recycled wood crates, and galvanized metal accents for rustic appeal and farmhouse charm.
