FALL DÉCOR

Welcome Fall! Today is the first day of fall and although I still enjoy the sunshine I am getting the “bug” to decorate for fall. One of the friendliest ways to decorate is to accent your front door. If you already have a color painted on your front door then use that color to display more decorative items on your step or porch. An autumn wreath is always a friendly addition to your door. If you can’t nail it on the door place it eye height on the wall at the entry. Autumn leaves can be wrapped around posts or poked into a bale of hay or pots. Pots can be cleared of dying plants and an evergreen plant changing colors or fall plants can be used to fill the pots. Pumpkins can be placed on steps whether artificial or real they are welcoming. Choose a variety of heights when decorating, use can use boxes, crates, bales of hay, anything that elevates. Other interior decorating items can be used too as long as the porch is covered. Don’t forget the beautiful doormats available for fall. Fall is all those beautiful orange and brown colors but you can add greens, black, reds and other accessory colors- just stay with a theme. It is always hard to decorate for fall without including Halloween, but if possible start early and then after the first week of October you can add your “spooky” items to include the holiday!
