7 outdoor fall decorating ideas to celebrate the season

Fall has arrived, which means it’s time to welcome the harvest season. Start by updating your exterior decor. Decorating your porch and yard for fall creates a warm atmosphere. Perfect for welcoming friends and family. Plus, it brightens up your entire neighborhood.

Seasonal designs for your porch and yard include festive wreaths. Enjoy fall garden flags adorned with pumpkins and colorful sunflowers. Plus, you’ll find colorful cornucopia flags filled with autumn bounty. That doesn’t mean things have to be predictable, however.  There are many ways to use your decorations to show off your personality.

Celebrate the season with these 7 outdoor fall decorating ideas to adorn doors, porches, gardens, and more!

1 Add fall color

Each season has a signature color palette. As fall sets in, swap out the cheery, bright colors of summer. Use gorgeous, rich colors including vibrant oranges, golden yellows, bronze and copper tones, and warm maroons.

You can select one dominant color to feature or create a palette of complementary fall colors. Even try a nontraditional combination, such as white and forest green.

2 Refresh everyday details

Cute fall porch ideas such as stacks of pumpkins and gourds, corn stalks, and wreaths always abound. Refreshing little details like mailboxes, doormats, and address signs adds something special to the mix.

Start with an attractive and festive design that can carry through the whole season. Thinking from when the first leaves drop through Halloween and Thanksgiving. Adding scarecrows, leaves, autumn florals, or cardinals as inspiration that can work until the first snowflakes.

3 Coordinate your decor

It’s helpful to have a theme or some other unifying element with your decorations. This will ensure the overall appearance isn’t a mishmash effect. We think a rustic or shabby chic design shouldn’t be confused with a lack of direction or decision.

Coordinating items such as mailbox covers, garden flags, and door decor is an easy and fun way to tie it all together. Then it’s a breeze to simply add a few additional touches to finish the look.

4 Think outside the box

Do you find yourself wanting to break away from traditional patterns and themes like gingham and pumpkins? Discover seasonal elements that still embrace the feeling of fall. Including themes with succulents, feathers, or a nontraditional color palette can be helpful.  Unexpected patterns like geometric prints look great outdoors. Think of other out-of-the-box ideas. Perhaps emphasizing a fall activity you enjoy such as apple picking or watching football.

Flags that highlight your local sports team are another fun way to show some personal flair and community support.

6 Keep it fresh

Don’t feel like you have to stick to one design for the entire season. Changing up your decor will give your home a fresh face. Updating your decorations a little or a lot as the season moves along to acknowledge different events. Perhaps just refresh your theme or color scheme.

Flags, door decor, doormats, and more can be switched out as the weather continues to change or as different holidays approach. Get as creative as you want and have fun with it!
