Saying goodbye to summer doesn’t have to be so sad. Especially when fall, and decorating for fall, is as fun as these ideas. From the front porch to inside the home, these creative tips will have you forgetting all about those delightful dog days of summer.

The Mantle

For starters, get your fireplace in the mood for autumn. After all, you’ll be spending an awful lot of time here (hopefully with hot chocolate) when the weather turns colder. If choosing colors isn’t your thing, consider this easy monochrome look. The white pumpkins really stand out, especially with those little pops of color.

No worries if you don’t have a fireplace. You can still decorate like you do. A shelf looks just as lovely as a mantel. And a little chalkboard paint can go a long way if you’re really dreaming of that fireplace look.

The Porch

If you’re just itching to get your front door and porch in the autumn mood, we’ve got you covered. Think beyond the standard jack-o-lantern and door wreath. Instead, swap out the wreath for something a little more…juicy. This apple display will do the trick, and you can even let the apple theme flow indoors as well.

Leaves make a great door decoration, plus there’s no raking required. Leaf garland is stunning, especially when contrasted with a more rustic look. And strategically placed mums are an absolute must for fall–we just love how this look comes together:

The Pumpkins

Lastly we couldn’t forget pumpkins, but we love the idea of branching out with the pumpkin creativity. These white pumpkins with glitter letters (yes, glitter!) are just too fun to pass up. Use the monogram of your last name, or let each kid pick a glitter color and represent the whole family.
