Welcome Fall With These Deck-orations
September 8, 2017
Can you believe that fall is almost here? It seems like the year has flown by! It’s already time to start thinking about what kind of deck-orations you’re going to adorn your deck with. Here are just a few of our favorite fall deck decorations to try out this year.
Outdoor String Lights
Christmas isn’t the only time of year when string lights can come in handy. Fall also calls for a subtle, ambient glow that can beautify chilly nights. These can be simply added by wrapping inexpensive fairy lights around the posts of your deck.
You can also make this decoration more extravagant by draping modern, decorative lanterns across your deck. This is particularly simple if you own or install a new gazebo which you can string the lights through.
Update Patio Furniture
Your patio furniture is a big part of appearance. Swapping out your furniture cushions for shades of brown, red, and orange is a sure-fire way to welcome in the fall. Stripes are also the perfect pattern!
If you’re feeling particularly daring, and your furniture needs an update, try repainting or restaining with a warmer tone. Fall colors will soon match the changing leaves, creating a cohesive, gorgeous design.
Pumpkins and Plants
Head over to your local nursery and find some fall-specific flowers that will make your deck pop with color. Pumpkins, while cliche, can add that extra umph of fall feeling. Tiny additions like this will add together to create an amazing sight when paired with the rest of your deck decorations.
Lounging outside during fall can be made that much better with decorative, properly scented candles. Cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg are great options. As the mosquitoes disappear, these candles are a fantastic alternative to those sickly smelling bug-repelling ones. If you are without a fire pit, the subtle flame from multiple candles lends to a fantastic fall feeling. Just make sure you’re being fire safe!
