This morning, I woke up to cool air rushing through my back windows. It was such a happy feeling it got me really excited for fall weather that is headed our way. One thing that everyone does in the fall is sprucing up their front porch! Even if it is just to add pumpkins and broomsticks, their front porch does get some attention...which doesn’t always happen!
So, since I know that a lot of you are in the market for a dressed up porch, I wanted to give you some tips on how you can dress up your front porch easily! Here are a few things that you could do:
Add A Touch Of Coziness
When I think of fall, the very first thing I think of is perfect weather (re: cool weather blowing through my windows). Not too hot, not too cold, and just right for sitting on the front porch with a blanket, a cup of apple cider, and a good book or daily devotional! Of course, to make this experience as great as it sounds, you don’t want to be sitting on the hard floor of your porch. That’s why every great front porch needs a comfortable chair for sitting in on those perfect days. Add a little table for sitting your fall necessities on and you are good to go!
For Halloween this year, if you are participating, you need to think a little more practically. That table can sport Halloween goody bags so that kids can just grab and go instead of digging their hands in bowl after bowl.
Welcome Mat A welcome mat is just the thing to tie together everything on your front porch, and greet any visitors you might have throughout the fall season. Try to select a welcome mat that is fall-themed (for example, one that has pumpkins, leaves, etc. on it) to get your guests in the spirit of the season. Not only will it welcome your guests, but it will keep your home and floor nice and clean!
How cute is this one ???
Y'all know I love me some wine so this one is calling my name and would match with any decor!
Clean Off Your Porch Furniture
If you already have outdoor furniture on your porch, make sure it is all ready to go for fall by cleaning it. While this can be a tedious task, it will be well worth it when your porch looks clean and inviting on those crisp mornings when you just want to relax outside. Having a neat, organized, and clean front porch can make your house look overall cleaner and more inviting to bypassers.
Don’t Forget the Plants and Flowers
There is nothing that I love more than a pop of color on a porch. Greenery, fall plants, or other subtle color looks great. Here are a few ideas:
-Place an urn (or two if you've got the space) on the porch filled with flowers. In the winter, you can exchange summer greenery for winter displays.
-Use hanging baskets full of summer flowers to add a burst of color.
-Dot the porch with potted plants and flowers. Use a variety of container and plant sizes to create visual interest. Be sure not to overdo it and clutter things up though. Choose containers that blend in with the surroundings.
-Attach flower boxes to windows and railings and fill them with vibrant flowers.
-Buy a variety of pumpkins and gourds and stage them.
