Fall Decorations for a Harvest Festival on the Patio

Looks like we pushed Rachel Pereira of Shades of Blue Interiors out of her holiday decorating comfort zone with our Harvest and Halloween Style Challenge. We sent her a mystery box of Home Depot fall decorations to use on her patio. It was full of faux pumpkins, cute Halloween scarecrows, and other such fall decorating items.

Turns out Rachel is not so much of an “orange” person. So, this certainly was a challenge for her! You certainly would not guess that looking at the fabulous backyard harvest festival she put together, though. It’s orange and yellow and red, and it’s bursting with fun details. From her fall tablescape to the hay bales around the fire pit, you’re bound to see some fall decorating ideas you’d like to use in your own home.

Front Porch Fall Decoration

The centerpiece of these front porch fall decorations is a cool DIY copper pipe table. We have the tutorial for the copper pipe table, and a look the rest of this cozy front porch all dressed up for autumn.
