What A Decorated Front Porch Means
Creative Curb Appeal
We find decorating for any holiday or season to be an important practice. It’s a great way to embrace the change that comes with a new season and it gives us a sense of anticipation for what comes next. Here are some other great reasons you should decorate your front porch for fall this year:
- Inspire Neighbors. When they see something new, your neighbors are going to want to try the same. Sharing decorating tips and decor items will bring you and your neighbors together and create a beautiful block all the way around.
- Welcome Guests. Your front porch is the entrance to your home. Make it inviting for guests, family and friends to enter your warm, comforting home by having some fun decor waiting for them when they arrive.
- Add Curb Appeal. Even passersby will want to stop and take a look at your front porch when you’ve decorated for fall. Give your home a quick makeover with fun holiday or seasonal accents that everyone will love to see.
- Welcome Holidays. In the fall season, decorating with pumpkins, gourds and bright oranges, greens and golds make us ready for the upcoming holiday season. There’s much to be celebrated in the fall and winter months. The appearance of fall decor reminds us that the holidays are right around the corner.
Include Creative Containers in Your Decorating Scheme
The containers you choose to decorate with will lend a fall flare to your entire front porch here are some fun options for your fall flowers and other items.
- Crates: Wooden crates piled up with outward-facing openings will make excellent shelves and cubbies for your fall flowers, pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn.
- Watering Can: Fill a watering can with fall flowers as a great way to give a rustic garden look to your fall front porch. Place a beautiful bouquet of flowers in a watering can like our Kalanchoe Watering Can for a fun fall display.
- Pumpkins: Instead of carving faces in pumpkins, hollow them out and place beautiful bushels of lavender inside for contrasting color and lots of fresh foliage.
- Baskets: Choose to display flowers in baskets, rather than ceramic or plastic containers, for a softer more natural fall look, like with our gorgeous Mum Plant. Add instant fall style with designs like this.
