Think outside the traditional planter! This year for my front porch I used some large baskets to hold my giant white mums. The weaved texture is such a fun new look for my plants.
Two of my favorite fall decorating outdoor items I love to use are wreaths and lanterns. Even though lanterns are often filled with candles, last year I filled mine with mini pumpkins.
Traditional candles can be pretty as well, as seen on my fall front porch from a couple of years back. The extra twinkle from the candles can really make any fall outdoor decor super elegant and very cozy.
