If there were ever a season for sitting on your front porch, it would be fall. The weather is cool enough that you don’t suffer from humidity while trying to enjoy an evening outside, but not so cold that you can’t feel your hands. It’s the perfect season for enjoying sunsets and time spent with friends or family at home. If you’re preparing for a season full of evening occasions, consider these tips for sprucing up your porch for the fall.
If you’re thinking of adding some type of color or life to your porch, may we suggest flowers? A mixed bouquet is the perfect way to bring in some fall colors to your porch without going overboard with décor. Whether you order occasional flower deliveries to always have autumn-inspired bouquets or you’re blessed with plenty of wildflowers near your home, flowers can be a naturally beautiful way to add life to your porch.
Create a cozy seating area
Whether you’re alone at home on your porch or you plan on having guests over every so often, making your porch a comfy place to be is the ultimate way to enjoy the fall season. There are so many different things you can do to make it an inviting place to be. You can make a floor seating area with throw pillows and blankets for a Middle Eastern vibe or install an outdoor swinging chair. You do you, boo!
Because the weather does get cool in the fall, make sure to have some clean blankets for those crisp mornings with a cup of coffee or cool evenings with a mug of tea.
Decorate for the season
With Halloween around the corner and Thanksgiving following close behind, you may want to decorate with the season’s best décor. From fun Halloween vibes to autumn inspired Thanksgiving décor, there are many ways to decorate your porch to fit in with the season.
Set up a table for meals outside
When the weather is nice, no one wants to be inside, am I right? So, instead of eating at the dining room table, consider setting up an alternative, small table that can allow you and yours to enjoy evening meals on your porch every now and then.
With the fresh air and the leaves falling, what could be more lovely than a fall evening enjoying good food, friends, and beautiful weather? Depending on how big your porch is, you can do a long dining table or just a simple outdoor table with a few folding chairs for entertaining guests. The table is a perfect spot for your flower bouquets.
Install romantic lighting
The sun goes down earlier in the fall, so while you may be more than happy to enjoy the evenings outside because of the nice weather, light may be an issue. Whether you’re hoping to spend evenings reading books or you want to enjoy some wine from your favorite wine subscription with friends, setting up enough lighting for you to see well, yet having it remain dim enough to be charming and romantic, can be the perfect addition to your porch during the fall.
Porches are a great area in any home and even better when the weather is to die for. If you are blessed with a front or back porch, what could be better than making it the perfect place to be when it’s nice out. From great fall décor to comfortable seating arrangements, there are plenty of ways to make your porch a place that connects you and yours, or simply allows you to relax at the end of a long day.
