Fall Decorating Ideas Made Easy

Now that the weather is beginning to cool off, it’s time to freshen up your landscaping and décor with the colors of fall. Joe’s Market Basket has gourds, pumpkins, fall mums and more to complete your look. We have a great selection of fall items that are sure to please your family and guests this season. We also founds some handy tips from Country Living website offering ideas for getting your porch and home ready for the fall.

  1. Creative pops of color. If the warmer colors of orange, brown and yellow don’t suit you, it’s easy to incorporate your favorite color scheme into the overall look with the use of ribbons, paint and more. Love the color blue? Tie a blue ribbon on your front porch pumpkin and create blue bows for your front door’s wreath.
  2. For the Love of Plaid. It’s hard to not embrace the plaid trend...it’s everywhere! Incorporating plaid into your decorating scheme, whether it’s a plaid blanket on your front porch swing for cuddling up during those cold evenings or plaid pillows on your deck furniture, fall plaid colors do wonders for any space.
  3. Calm, cooler hues. Softer shades of blues, white, pinks and peaches can also be used when decorating with pumpkins and mums. The pastel shades are a nice contrast to the traditional orange and browns, creating a look that is unique and subtle. Ways to achieve this look include painting the pumpkin on your front porch a cream color, putting out a light blue welcome mat, or adding planters to the mix with pastel colors.
  4. Corn stalk décor. Reasonably priced corn stalks can transform your front porch into a welcoming fall-themed entrance. Stalks can be used on both sides of the front door, strung with orange or white mini-lights, surrounded by pumpkins and fall mum planters. Cornstalks can also be easily adorned with ribbons and glittery bows, making them a perfect complement to your landscape décor this season. Corn husks can also be used to create wreaths and garland!
