A Roundup of Vintage Patio Decor for Fall

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.

Vintage Baskets

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

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.



Vintage Buckets

Hang a vintage metal pail or bucket and fill it with small pumpkins, gourds, and dried leaves and flowers for a fun look!



Vintage Wagons

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!



Vintage Trays

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.

  1. I’m with Tina. I love Fall colors and decorating for Fall. One year, I bought pumpkins in size increments…one designated for each grandchild. That was fun!

  2. We have the opposite issue in Arizona, JD, where it’s warm and less warm. So the idea of decorating for four seasons is still a good one; otherwise fall would be largely a figment of our imagination.

  3. I’m not much of an outside decorator but a small tub of assorted small gourds on my autumn colored table runner on my dining table just hit me. Thanks for the inspiration!
