Autumn has officially arrived here in Huntsville, which means it’s time to add some seasonal décor to your outdoor deck. Here are a few ideas our Yellowhammer roof replacement team would like to share with you so you can spruce up your deck and make it more festive.
Pumpkins, Mums, and Gourds
Seasonal items such as pumpkins, mums, and gourds are the mainstay of any autumn decorating scheme and the number of ways you can use them is almost endless. A few ways to incorporate them include:
- Sitting miniature gourds and pumpkins on your deck’s railing.
- Cutting the top off of a pumpkin, and then sticking some colorful mums inside. This makes an excellent centerpiece for an outdoor table.
- Placing pumpkins and battery-operated candles on your stairs to help light things up a bit.
- Scattering gourds and pumpkins around potted containers of mums, and then placing them in the corners of your deck to provide color.
Using natural elements such as Indian corn, hay, corn stalks, or even colored leaves can enhance your seasonal décor tremendously. For a somewhat simpler look, place an autumn wreath on the door leading outside to your Huntsville deck, along with an autumn-themed welcome mat. To draw even more attention to this area, place a basket full of gourds and colorful fall leaves on top of a bale of hay along with a few stalks of corn.
Cozy Seating Area
Spruce your deck up to create a cozy seating area for those cooler evenings that are now upon us. Use a bamboo area rug to anchor the space, and then place some bright orange, yellow, or red pillows on your seats for added comfort. Finish by draping a couple of cozy afghans over the back of your chairs, and you have an arrangement that no one will be able to resist.
When it comes to autumn decorating, don’t be afraid to add a few garlands or even strands of single color Christmas lights to help add seasonal flair to your deck.
