Fall will be upon us shortly, make sure your porch is ready! The front of your home should be center stage and displaying the bounty of the season for all to see. Make your home the envy of the neighborhood by creating one of these three autumn designs created by Better Homes and Garden!
Farm Stand Fresh
This plentiful porch displays the array of wonderful products you can find at your local farmers market. Surround your front door with beautiful dried cornstalks and farm tools such as rakes and pitchforks. Fill vintage farm baskets with fresh picked apples, gourds, leaves and Indian corn. Combine these items with a few pots of rust red mums and you will have completed this wonderful fall themed porch!
This simple and natural front porch display is anything but boring. With an arrangement of tall branches, leaves, pumpkins and long grasses-it’s as if Mother Nature herself is living there! Make sure to incorporate the vintage feel by attaching skeleton keys to a few pumpkins to spell out the word of your choosing. Don’t forget to dress up your door by creating a wreath that includes twigs, seedpods, nuts, berries and leaves!
If decorating for Halloween is more your forte, this is the porch design for you! Move away from the fall feel and into the spooky! Make a bold statement by placing a large tree decal on your front door and surround it with faux ravens. Add texture and color to its surroundings by painting pumpkins different seasonal sayings and patterns. Give your porch a feeling of the past by adding old tattered chairs and vintage fabrics!
