Autumn is hands-down my favorite time of year. The crisp air, the drifting smell of wood fires, the stunning colors of the leaves as they change, drift, and fall. There’s just something about this time of year that feels cozy, inviting, and wonderful.
So, that means I love to decorate for the season! Inside my home, I put out the orange pumpkins and turkeys. But outside, I like to dress things up, too. From banners to garden stakes and garden flags, I love it all! But not everyone wants to spend hours shopping for the best outdoor fall and Halloween decorations as much as I do. For you, I’ve created this great list of the best choices to decorate that front porch, garden, and yard.
There’s something about sunflowers that whispers “fall!” in such a lovely way. And what better way to celebrate the season than a fun garden flag like this one? This beautiful little flag is easy to install, too – just post it right into the garden or lawn.
One of my favorite pieces of décor is always the door sign. And this fun little sign is so pretty! It will help your guests feel welcomed as they walk in, thanks to the lovely touches. Just hang on a nail on the door for a super-easy touch to welcome the season.
Another twist on leaves and lights is this darling light garland. The leaves add that autumnal pop, but the lights do, too, thanks to their pumpkin shape! So much fun while also being elegant enough for a nice last-of-season dinner party by the firepit.
For a nice touch on the picnic table outback, grab this faux pumpkin “vase” filled with lovely autumnal flowers. It’s a super simple way to dress up the area in less than 2 minutes. Or, place the vase on the stoop, the windowsill, or anywhere to bring that special touch of Autumn.
Fun Décor for the Best Season
The best way to decorate your landscape for any season is by using many pieces that all say something to you. So, whether you’re into cute stuff like me (gnomes!) or go for more elegant touches, combine things for the perfect look.
I’d doll up that front porch with the gnome welcome mat, engaging visitors directly with a cute invite that shows off some whimsey. The mat also, of course, provides some functionality for your doorstep as those storms roll in and autumn turns cooler and wetter.
Additionally, I’d especially recommend the maple leaf pumpkin light strings for that extra special autumn touch that works for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. The lights pop at night and the leaves during the day.
I’d also recommend the faux pumpkin vase in particular, because, well, it’s a warm, inviting décor piece you can use on the stoop, the table, on a shelf by the door, or just about anywhere for a seasonal touch you don’t have to mess with.
