Decorate Your Door and Entryway For Fall
Celebrate the start of harvest season by sprucing up your front door.
You only get one chance to make a first impression. And by first impression, we mean the front door and entryway of your home. For the most part, we think of the entrance to our home as the perfect place to greet loved ones—and store coats, shoes, umbrellas, and other gear we grab before leaving the house. But a front stoop or hallway is also an area begging to express your unique style! Try switching out your decor seasonally to keep things fresh and make a fun, inviting statement.
Here are our favorite ways to give your home’s first impression a homey harvest vibe.
Place Some Plants
If you think of plants as being solely summery and green, think again. Your front stoop will look great with some flowers in jewel tones fit for fall. No shame in your artificial plant game, either. They look pretty, are seriously low maintenance, and can be reimagined next season.
Wreaths are most common around Christmastime, but we like to use them year-round. Choose one with earthy, autumnal colors to welcome the season and your guests.
Use Your Words
Nothing says “welcome” quite like literally saying “welcome.” The harvest season brings warm, fuzzy feelings of gratitude, and what better way to express them than with some whimsical, on-theme decor? Pair the signs with hay bales, bundled corn husks, or a scarecrow. Add in string lights to show off your handiwork!
Let There Be Light
Outdoor lighting is always a good thing, and that’s especially true during the fall and winter when it gets dark earlier. Make the entrance to your home easy to find by brightening things up! Plus, if you’re going to put up all those lovely decorations, you may as well make them easy to see.
Your entryway probably isn’t the biggest room in your house, but it undoubtedly gets a lot of foot traffic. Don’t get bogged down making big furniture swaps or putting huge decorative pieces in the room. Instead, focus on small changes you can make and little seasonal tweaks.
A small accent rug is a key swap to express your fall feelings. We love these versions from Bee & Willow™. They’re pretty, understated, and neutral enough to complement any scheme.
Candles and Lighting
Another name for autumn is fall, and another name for both of those things is Pumpkin Everything Season. That means pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin-scented everything is in your near future. Don't fight it—embrace it! Freshen up your space with a few scented candles. They’re festive and super easy. For something flameless, these LED Lighted Glass Pumpkin Sculptures are fun. Place them next to the base of this 3-Stack Cornhusk Pumpkin Decoration for an eye-catching look.
Welcome, fall. We’re ready for you!
