Decorating a Friendly or Frightening Front Porch

Decorations are the most important part of getting ready for Halloween! Luckily, you’ve got a spacious covered front porch to fill up. A classic fall look will welcome guests all season, and can easily be turned to a Halloween theme with a few key additions. Start by wrapping fall leaf garlands around the pillars with lights, hanging a fall wreath on the door, and creating a pumpkin arrangement to set the scene. Then, when it’s time to decorate for Halloween, the jack-o-lanterns can come out – check out our Pinterest page for inspiration! Pin spooky bats to your fall wreath, or spread some cobwebs all over the door, and if you have furniture on your front porch you can invite a scary guest to sit out all night, greeting trick-or-treaters. After the festivities, it’s easy to convert your porch back to a welcoming fall scene – ready for all the cool-weather gatherings you’re sure to have in your new home.
