Halloween and Thanksgiving come so closely together that there’s no use getting out new porch decor for Thanksgiving. Instead, learn some time-saving tips to extend your Fall porch decor all the way into Thanksgiving. If you’ve just been letting your Halloween decor hang around until Thanksgiving, things are about to change!
Fall Porch Decor That Extends Into Thanksgiving
With some easy adjustments, your Fall porch decor can go happily all the way from September through November. Here are the easy time-saving tips to get you there.
To help your Fall porch decor extend all the way through the season, complete with its two different holidays, you first need to establish a base. This base is easy to set up. First, consider your favorite things about Fall. For most people, this includes red, orange and yellow leaves, jewel-colored Mums, plus assorted pumpkins and gourds.
Dress your porch in your chosen Fall basics. Add your favorite Mums to the planters, hang a wreath of lovely Fall leaves, and set out some uncarved pumpkins. This base is going to stay for the season. And if that’s all you do, it’s going to look fabulous!
Halloween Fall Porch Decor Modifications
When Halloween rolls around in October, it’s simple to change-up your porch decor by adding some carved pumpkins to the mix. You can also add spookier elements to the front lawn or hang bats in the trees. Wrap some purple and orange solar light strings around the porch railing. But since we’re stressing the easy part here, so feel free to leave it at adding Jack-o-lanterns. It’s all up to you!
Thanksgiving Fall Porch Decor Additions
After Halloween, the first thing to do is take down whatever Halloween elements you added to your Fall porch decor. The Jack-o-lanterns are probably ready to be tossed by now, so that’s an easy change.
I love the idea to take one or two of the pumpkins you set out in September and paint them for Thanksgiving. Use some Sharpie paint pens to add your own design for the holiday.
If you set out a chalkboard as part of your Fall porch decor base, it’s easy to change that up for each holiday. When Halloween comes, change it from “hello Fall” to “Trick-or-Treat.” After Halloween write “Thankful” or “Grateful” and you’re good to go!
With these easy ideas and more, you can make your Fall porch decor last from September right through Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving, come back here for some ideas to decorate your porch for Christmas!
