Since this past Thursday was the official kickoff to fall, and the fact we’re coming off a beautiful fall weekend, I’m ready to start accepting everything fall. One place that you can really make a statement for fall is your front porch/entryway; and this can be accomplished simple or on a more grand scale. Here is some inspiration along with key pieces and tips to consider as you put your fall front porch together!
First You’ll Want to Determine:
- Your color pallet – if you want to go with the deep oranges, reds, and yellows or if you want to keep it simple with white pumpkins and pops of one color.
- If you’re going to keep it simple and understated or if you’re going all out.
- Halloween specific or fall; personally I learn towards for fall since this will last you up until your pulling our your Christmas decorations. Halloween only lasts a month. CONSIDER: If you’re leaning towards Halloween, because you have kids or are hosting a killer party, think of ways to switch out key pieces after the 31st so that you can keep it up through Thanksgiving.
- A sign or focal point
- Mums – remember your color pallet!
- Wooden crate or old windows
And wah-la! You should have a fabulous, inviting front porch for the next 2-months! I still need to finish a few DIY’s and crafts, but I’ll share my finished front porch here in the next few weeks.
