Yeah, I know. Summer was too short. It always is. How does that happen? Do the Summer’s feel like they are only a fleeting moment to you, too? Seems we go from Winter…. Winter…. Winter…. Winter…. Winter…. Winter…. Spring… Spring… Summer… Fall… Fall… Winter… Well, at least here in Minnesota.
I really (REALLY) wish it weren’t already Fall, but here we are. Time to sit back and enjoy the Fall colors.
Here’s a quick round-up of some awesome ideas for decorating your front porch, patio, or deck for Fall.
Gather a vintage basket and fill it with Mums. You might even be able to find a vintage owl statue at a local thrift shop! Turn an old plaid shirt into a pillow cover, and you’ve got the look!
Vintage blankets in rust, brown, orange, or reds can be draped over your chairs to give them a warmer look. Use vintage fabric to create pillow covers that you can easily change for each season.
Hang a vintage metal pail or bucket and fill it with small pumpkins, gourds, and dried leaves and flowers for a fun look!
Fill a vintage wagon with mums, pumpkins and gourds and park it on your porch or patio. Add additional elements such as a plaid blanket to line the wagon. If you don’t have a wagon, an old wheelbarrow will also work!
Use vintage trays and fill them with a large pillar candle, dried flowers, acorns, small colorful gourds and berries to add a touch of color to your front porch or patio. Set the trays on tables or even on the steps leading up to your door.
