5 Ways to Prep Your Outdoor Living Area for Autumn
Pumpkin spice is in the air and clearly, that means fall has officially arrived! While we’ll miss those summer pool days and backyard barbecues, it’s time to bust out the fall decor and cozy up your outdoor living area for a different kind of backyard indulgence.
We’ve got your fall garden inspiration right here!
Dust Off the Fire Pit
It’s bonfire season, ya’ll! And that means pulling the ol’ gas fire pit out of the garage or shed.
Get it set up in the perfect place where it can safely burn away from low-hanging branches and patio furniture.
This is a good time to freshen it up with colorful sparkly Fire Glass to get into the fall spirit!
Instead of retiring your outdoor furniture for the season, deck it out with cozy accessories to turn it into a warm, inviting atmosphere to socialize during those dreamy fall sunsets.
Add throw pillows and fleece blankets, which can be stored in a basket or box on your patio.
Lay down a large outdoor rug and adorn it with floor pillows, then set up a projector for movie nights under the stars.
Bring on the Fall Decorations
This is your chance to be as extra as you please with your fall decorations! Set the mood with garlands and a pampas grass display. Add twinkling fairy lights to trees and pergolas.
And of course, don’t forget the pumpkins and gourds! If a tabletop doesn’t have a pumpkin sitting on it, is it even fall?
Switch up the Planters
Now’s a great time to change out your container plants for the season. Refresh the mulch and soil and choose plants with crimson leaves or beige-colored grasses.
Add shiny black-colored Mexican beach pebbles to give your containers a Halloween feel.
Create Romantic Lighting with Lanterns
When you want to enjoy that soft golden glow of light while sipping your mug of hot cider, consider adding a few standing lanterns to your outdoor coffee table or outdoor kitchen.
Lanterns are easy to use and add a luxe touch, enhancing the overall fall aesthetic of your outdoor living area.
