Fall Ideas for Your Arkansas Patio Decorations

While in many regions of the country fall is a time to pack up all the patio furniture for the season, Arkansas is lucky enough to get some extra time outside during the fall months. Warm days and cool nights make for a perfect time to be outside on the patio with friends and family. If you are looking to spruce up your outdoor living for the fall, here are some Arkansas patio decorations you can use.

Fall Plants

While most people think of plants as something for the spring or summer, there are plenty of beautiful fall plants that you can use to bring vibrant fall colors to your patio. Mums and marigolds are two that give lovely shades of orange, gold and red to your patio, evoking a feeling of fall. You can get these plants most places, already potted, as a ready-made accent for your patio.

Fall Fruits and Vegetables

Pumpkins and gourds make wonderful fall patio decorations in Arkansas. The great thing about them is that they come in a wide range of colors and sizes. You can even forgo the traditional pumpkin look for some of the more funky shapes and sizes that get left over by the Halloween shoppers. The odd shapes can actually add to the personality of your patio.

If pumpkins aren’t your style, there are plenty of other fall foliage ideas you can use. Turn a used apple basket into a place to hold your patio candles or display jars of homemade (or store bought with the label removed) jellies and preserves.

Fire Pits

Nothing can drive away the chill of a cool autumn evening that gathering around the fire. That’s what makes it the perfect time to purchase a fire pit for your outdoor living space. Fire pits come in all shapes and sizes so you can choose one that matches your taste perfectly. You can even use the things that go with your fire pit as decorating ideas. A tastefully placed stack of wood with fire pit tools leaning on it can make a fun fall statement for your patio. Not to mention the mesmerizing flames that will come off of the fire pit once it is lit on a cool night.

Patio Furniture

Since you aren’t going to be putting the patio furniture away, maybe it is time to change up the cushions. Store away the summer tones for more subdued fall oranges and yellows. This can change the entire feel of your patio from a summer gathering place to one for fall relaxation. It will also bring out different accents in your home that can evoke the feeling of fall.

Harvest Celebration

Fall evokes the feeling of the harvest, so decorate with things like hay bales or grain sacks to give the feeling of the fall harvest in your home.
