Tuck wool blankets around lounge chairs. Plaid wool throws folded neatly atop the seat cushions of lounge chairs look crisp and cozy. And when you want to enjoy your porch just a little bit longer in the evening, all you need to do is pull up a blanket and snuggle in.


Go wild with candlelight. Why stop with just one or two candles when you can have 10 or 20? Cluster them together on a tray or metal side table, and the glow they cast will instantly boost the evening ambiance on your porch. For safety, consider choosing battery-operated candles some look very realistic!


Cozy up the hammock. Help your hammock look right at home as the leaves begin to fall by boosting its comfort level with a smattering of pillows and a super-soft throw. Then just swap out your summer iced tea for a mug of hot apple cider, and youll be happily swinging and swaying until the first flakes fly.


Display pumpkins in subtle hues. If you want to get a jump on fall porch decorating but its a little early for full-on Halloween, consider picking up some pumpkins and gourds in a more subtle color palette. Silvery green, white and pale orange pumpkins are beautiful and elegant, and they dont scream fall so much as whisper it.
