Fall is one of those seasons that makes it so easy to love. I’m not really a huge fan of hot, humid weather, so I welcome those first cool, milder fall temperatures.
It’s also easy to find inspiration in outdoor decorating for fall because nature is pretty much screaming, “IT’S FALL!,” all around you.
From the bright colors of the trees’ leaves changing, to the orange pumpkins and yellow cornstalks…there’s no mistaking when its fall.
I pulled from nature’s vibes with my front porch this fall. And a little bit in our back pergola space too.
Finally the bugs – mainly mosquitoes – here in Wisconsin have mostly all died and it is tolerable to be outside for longer than 30 seconds.
It’s really a treat when I can relax out here in this space without swatting anything!
With a good book, cup of cider and a blanket, it’s still a very nice place to unwind.
I’m trying to soak up as much Vitamin D as I can before the winter blues kick in.
The front of our house also got a welcoming transition for fall. I love using anything in nature that nods to the season. It also helps carry you further into Thanksgiving if you don’t specifically try to decorate for Halloween. (I’m not a big fan of the scary stuff anyway, so I am not super disappointed to skip it.)
The recent red paint job on our front door has been holding up well.
Adding a fall welcome mat with some corn stalks, pumpkins and mums really helps dress the front entry naturally.
I hung a simple rustic berry wreath to the front door.
And about those pumpkins…Cinderella, gourds or carving…
Do you usually wait to carve your pumpkins until the end of October? Or right away? I’m excited to try out a new pumpkin carving kit I found at Target.
Hopefully we get to carving before it gets too cold and our pumpkins turn all mushy. Cause is there anything worse than a mushy pumpkin? Oh well, at least my chickens will get a treat!
Hope you enjoy all of your outdoor spaces this season as much as you can!
