14-10-20 Style Your Patio Fall

Growing up I always loved decorating the big front sun porch with my Mom, we’d drag out all the old decorations and buy a few new ones to get into the spirit of the changing season together.

Since moving to Vancouver I’ve had to get a bit creative because we live in a condo and there are rules about having anything in the common hallway. So last fall I decided to take matters into my own hands and instead of putting all my summer furniture away, I left a couple chairs out and created a little seating area under the overhang on my patio. Bonus is, when I’m sitting inside I can enjoy the pleasant looking autumn decorations from my couch.

All I did to create my cozy seating area was buy a bunch of different sized pumpkins and a few fall plants like hardy colourful grasses and bright fall coloured mums. Then I grabbed a wool blanket to cuddle underneath with a good book and hot drink.

This is a great way to extend your patio season while keeping your patio looking nice because it’s usually in a very visible location when you live in a small condo. Have fun decorating and enjoy your new seating area!

  1. Very inviting…puts my front porch to shame, but you’ve inspired me to dress it up before my pot luck group comes for lunch on Thusday.
