Generally by November 5 in Northeast PA, we are bringing in our flowers and thinking about how to winterize our gardens. This year we are lucky enough to enjoy a few more weeks of nice weather. So let’s celebrate by making our porches and front entrances festive! Here are some of our favorite ideas for fall.
Pumpkins as House Numbers
Cute idea the kids can help you make! Paint a pumpkin white or purchase white pumpkins. Paint your house number on them or use felt or foam numbers.
Add a rustic touch
Plant your seasonal flowers in a rustic pail or pot. Repurpose whatever you find for a rustic look.
Go opposite with color
Fall is FULL of colors so make your porch or walk way calming with cool tones like white and pale blue.
Cornstalks add great character
Large cornstalks are definitely eye catching as people walk or drive-by. What could make your porch look more falltastic?
Monochromatic pumpkins make unique displays
Once thought of as strange, the white pumpkins are very popular for designing this year. You can create a pretty scene using jewel-tone flowers and monochromatic pumpkins for an elegant look.
Repurpose an old wagon
At Edward’s Garden Center we love to repurpose old things. In fact its one of Diane’s specialties. One of our favorite ideas is reusing an old wagon to create a pretty scene.
We hope you enjoyed seeing some of our favorite ideas for decorating your front porch. Enjoy the unusually warm weather and create a beautiful entry way into your house!
