Fall Decorating Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining
With autumn quickly approaching, it’s time to spruce up your alfresco areas to match this time of year. Whether you’re planning on creating a seating area so you can enjoy the fall foliage or just sprucing up your front door, here are several simple ways you can prepare an elegant outdoor space for fall.
Outdoor Tablescape in Fall Colors
For a fall-inspired outdoor table, decorate with warm colors complemented by burnished metallic accents. These bronze, copper, and golden hues are a natural complement to earthy fall tones, and create an elegant tablescape perfect for the season.
Paired with a fall foliage centerpiece, these warm metallic table accents will make your table setting shine.
Outdoor Seating Area with Wooden Furniture
Classic wooden outdoor furniture is a natural choice for fall, since wood tones are the perfect complement to orange, yellow, red, and brown hues. Wooden furniture is also resistant to extreme temperatures, so you can use it all year round.
For a fall look that is as comfortable as it is beautiful, simply add some cushions, pillows, and throws in fall colors to your wooden furnishings. Arrange your tables and chairs in front of your outdoor fireplace so that you and your guests can stay warm even on the chilliest of nights.
Fall Decorating Ideas for the Front Yard
If you don’t have an outdoor entertaining area but still want to spruce up for fall, adding a few autumnal touches to your front porch is also a great way to celebrate the season. Decorating with fall wreaths is a very popular way to add warmth to your front door.
