Do you feel it? Fall has arrived and it’s time to decorate, both inside and out, for the season. Bring the warm colors of fall into your home and your porch or garden with the help of pumpkins, gourds, mums, pansies, violas, corn stalks and hay bales.

At the center of your fall decorating are pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins! Jump start your fall decorating with pumpkins. These versatile beauties help you celebrate fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Pumpkins come in all sizes, from smaller than a handful to about the same size as a straw bale to enormous prize winning pumpkins. There are white pumpkins, multi colored Cinderella pumpkins and even edible winter squash.

You can stack them, carve them, paint them, add them to your planting beds, put them in a lantern or bowl. You can also use window boxes and container gardens you have – just plant fall flowers and add pumpkins there. The possibilities are endless!

Outdoor Fall Container Displays

An outdoor fall container display is one of the most popular ideas for any porch and garden. Such a display is easy to make yourself, and there are so many options to try. First of all, about the base: it can be a plant pot, plant stand, basket or anything you desire.

Fill your container with pumpkins, gourds, fall flowers, faux leaves, vegetables and flowers. Add hay, husks and lanterns filled with corn or pumpkins. Create rich and bold displays with lots of colorful potted mums, pumpkins, burlap and ribbon, add fall veggies from your garden if there are any.
