The days of summer parties by the pool are over and the nights of bonfires and scary stories are being ushered in by the cool weather of fall. Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of the gorgeous patio you worked so hard to install last spring.
So, make sure that you take advantage of the crisp, golden Autumn weather by having drinks on the patio, and don’t forget to keep your sweater by the back door so that you can take your socializing outdoors whenever you feel the need for some crisp, fresh air. One thing you don’t want to forget is to decorate your patio for the fall season. A drab patio does you no good and is no fun to hang out on in the cooler temperatures. With that being said, read on below for some tips for decorating your patio for the fall season.
Say it with Lights
Everyone knows that as fall gets closer, the sun dips below the horizon that much faster in the evenings. While you are lighting the bonfire, you can make your patio that much more magical with an autumn wreath of flashing lights. You can also string the twinkling lights along the fences or railings of your yard and steps for an added touch of charm on a crisp fall evening.
Decorate Your Window Boxes
The window boxes above your patio shouldn’t be left bare in the fall season. Instead, you should decorate them with a couple of orange pumpkins. Add a couple of boxes of mums and your yard and patio will be the prettiest on the street.
Create a Bonfire Retreat
Of course, with your patio looking all fall like, you are going to want to extend that atmosphere to your bonfire area as well. The best way to decorate this area is by purchasing a couple of hay bales as seats and keeping some festive fall blankets around so that people can snuggle under them around the fire. The straw from the hay bales won’t go to waste, as you can put them in your flower beds this upcoming winter or use them for a hay ride when Halloween rolls around. Either way, it will spruce up your fire pit for fall and make your patio look that much better as well.
Add Some Fall Patterns
Don’t let that swing on your porch go unnoticed this fall. The porch leading to your autumn patio is just as important as decorating the patio itself. Add some autumn cushions and even a blanket and some fallish feeling throw pillows. This will make the perfect spot for curling up to read on a cool autumn day.
These are just a few tips for decorating your patio and yard for the fall season. Don’t let your patio just sit bare because the summer fun is done. Make sure that you decorate it the right way to ensure that your patio is cozy and welcoming to all your guest all autumn long. Contact Stone Patios today for more information.
