Simple Fall Outdoor Decorating Ideas – Woodstock, Vermont:
On my recent fall trip to Vermont, I spent an afternoon in the quintessential New England town of Woodstock. With the temperatures in the seventies, I picked the perfect day to meander through the charming streets. As you’ll see, fall decorating inspiration was everywhere!
Okay, who loves this as much as I do?!! For fall decorating, you can’t get more simple than lining up mini pumpkins on fence posts. Sometimes, the most basic ideas are the prettiest!
If you have a fence in your front yard, this is an easy way to add some fall curb appeal to your home. Against the white fence, the orange pumpkins really stand out. To me, it feels like such a warm welcome.
Down the street, I spotted some simple orange pumpkins on a front porch. Since many of these older homes have ledges above the doors and windows, the homeowners line mini pumpkins on them. Such a cute idea – and so New England.
By the way, I need to mention that the name of this street is Pleasant Street. How perfect is that? Obviously, the street is living up to it’s name!
Simple Outdoor Decorating – Classic Homes:
On the corner of Pleasant Street, sits this brick beauty. Once again, it’s another example of simple fall front porch decorating. Although, I really just took this photo because the house is pretty and you could see the Pleasant Street sign!
Though not technically a fall decorating idea, don’t you love the way the black shutters stand out against the brick? Lately, so many people are painting their brick but I still love this classic look as well.
While we’re talking about black shutters, here’s a gorgeous stone house in the center of town. And speaking of gorgeous, how about that window box?!! With the pumpkins, mums, and greenery cascading over the edges, it’s really all this home needs for fall outdoor decorating!
If you aren’t able to hang a window box on your home, you could still recreate this look. Simply, display some wooden boxes filled with pumpkins and fall flowers on your deck or patio. If you’re spending time outside this fall season, why not make your outdoor living areas pretty?!
While many exteriors were simply decorated, some houses were more dressed up with their outdoor fall decorations…
Believe me, I’m not the only one who stopped to take pictures of this fall porch decor! Between the corn stalks, the hay bales and all those pumpkins and mums, this home is bursting with fall front porch ideas! Once again, this was another example of mini pumpkins displayed on window ledges.
Isn’t it pretty how the black rocking chair ties in with all the black from the shutters, door and even the stairs? In this town, there were so many great fall ideas to steal! Now, I’m thinking about adding corn stalks to my front porch…I’ve never tried that look.
By the way, this lovely home used to be a bed and breakfast known as The Ardmore Inn. Unfortunately, it’s closed now so it’s nice to see the homeowners are taking great care of it. Obviously, they enjoy decorating for fall!
Here is another gorgeous front porch decorated for fall. As you can see, the orange fall wreath stands out against the pretty dark door…I’m not sure if the door is black or dark green. Either way, the homeowner kept their fall decor simple yet festive.
On this porch, there are two ledges to display those mini orange pumpkins. Yes, I think I see a trend here! This is a great fall decorating idea to copy in your own home…if you have a ledge on your front porch.
For the past few years, I’ve been decorating with mini pumpkins above my front door as well. Originally, I discovered the idea from Instagram and then I started noticing the pumpkins when I would visit Woodstock in the fall. Such a pretty yet simple idea!
If you don’t have any outdoor ledges, create the same look inside. For instance, here are some easy kitchen window sill decorating ideas to try.
Simple Fall Outdoor Decorating – Nature’s Beauty:
Speaking of pretty and simple, I had to take a photo of this gorgeous red tree during my walk.
With stunning fall foliage like that in your front yard, there’s no need to add more fall decorations! This historic brick home, known as the General Lyman Mower House is located across the street from the town green.
If you want to take a peek inside this beautiful home, I just happened to find some interior photos shared by the Woodstock architect.
Sometimes, just natural elements are all you need to decorate for fall.
Take for instance, this side yard…look at those vibrant leaves! Seriously, do you need anything more than a pumpkin and two Adirondack chairs?
Speaking of Adirondack chairs…
As I wrap up this tour of the beautiful Woodstock exteriors, I can’t forget about the iconic Woodstock Inn! Since this lovely property is known as “Vermont’s Most Beautiful Address”, it’s a favorite place to take photos in the fall…or any season!
As you can see, it was a lovely day to sit in the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the view! Gee, I wonder how many photos those two people ended up in? Haha…
This year, the Woodstock Inn kept their fall outdoor decorating simple…just their annual mums at the entrance and some pumpkins along the brick wall. Sometimes, less is more. Though, I guess the architecture steals the show anyway!
Hopefully, my tour of Woodstock gave you some ideas to decorate your front porch or outdoor spaces for fall!
