Amazing Ideas for Fall Outdoor Decor
Today I’m sharing some amazing ideas for outdoor fall decorations.
Farmer’s markets, gardening centers, hardware stores, and grocery stores are loaded with pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks, and more. Take advantage of the fall goodness readily available and make your outdoor space look amazing for fall.
I’m sharing my DIY outdoor fall decorating ideas for this month’s Thrifty Style Team project hosted by Julie of Redhead Can Decorate.
You’ll find links to all of the projects shared this month at the end of this post.
Outdoor Fall Decor Ideas
All of the ideas that I’m sharing today are from the Vermont town of Woodstock, our favorite Vermont vacation location.
Line a Wall with Pumpkins
Every fall, The Woodstock Inn lines the walls in front of the inn with large pumpkins.
Last year the pumpkin colors were shades of orange. This year in addition to shades of orange, they used white and green pumpkins.
Most homes in the town of Woodstock are beautifully decorated outside for fall. This home lined their wall with small orange pumpkins.
Stack a Trio of Pumpkins
Pumpkins look wonderful stacked in a trio. This trio is especially pleasing using pumpkin of varying colors and patterns.
These pumpkin trios are on two columns lining the walkway leading to the entrance of The Woodstock Inn.
The Woodstock Inn has huge gardens that grow not only food to serve in the inn, but also gourds and pumpkins used to decorate both inside and outside of the property. Read more about their amazing gardens here.
This wall in front of the inn features another pumpkin trio along with a line of orange pumpkins on the wall.
A flower bed is decorated with a trio of green pumpkins.
Use Pumpkins to Line the Edge of a Flower Bed
Pumpkins along this edge of this landscape bed along with colorful mums makes a wonderful fall display.
Large white pumpkins line the edge of this perennial bed.
The Ardmore Bed and Breakfast decorated a perennial bed with a row of pumpkins.
The Kedron Valley Inn lined the edges of the perennial beds leading to the inn with pumpkins.
Use Groups of Pumpkins for Outdoor Fall Decorations
The inn replaced flowering annual plants with a group of pumpkins along with mums under a Hydrangea.
Gourds are used in this landscape bed.
Add a Pumpkin to a Flower Pot
No need to reinvent the wheel for a fall flower pot, simply keep the usual perennials growing in the pot and add a pumpkin for fall decor.
This Woodstock home must not frequently use the front door. Note the five pumpkins on the front steps.
A Woodstock business added a pumpkin and some Bittersweet to the planter below their sign for fall decor.
Window Box Ideas
Fill a window box with mums, ornamental cabbage, a pumpkin, and gourds for fall.
Add twinkle lights to a window box for extra charm.
Every year I intend to use cornstalks on the columns on our front porch but I have yet to do so.
Keep it Simple
This Woodstock home kept the outdoor decor simple by adding pumpkins to their front porch and to their window boxes.
Decorate a Bike for Fall
A Woodstock chiropractor decorated their porch for fall with a vintage bicycle. Note that their Magnolia wreath left over from last Christmas is the perfect brown color for fall.
Filling the bike basket with pumpkins is such a unique fall decorating idea!

Thanks for sharing this beautiful location and all their pumpkins! Loved it!
So beautiful! Thanks for sharing the lovely sights!
It’s interesting how many people and businesses there simply ‘line-up’ their pumpkins. Wonder if there is a significance to that, or if it’s just the way they do things there? Glad you are having a wonderful time! Did you take your camera equipment, or are you just using your phone?
So many pretty pictures and such wonderful autumn inspiration! I really liked everything but that sign with the planter beneath it with the bittersweet and a pumpkin may have been my favorite. Now, I’m trying to figure out a way I could do something like this at my house. Thanks for sharing the beauty, Paula.
Thank you for taking us on this beautiful fall tour, Paula! It’s on my bucket list to one day travel to Quebec and then over to the northeastern states during Fall. Then end the trip in November in New York City to see the holiday displays. I do hope one day I get to see this dream realized.
Thank you so much for sharing this Paula! I’m gearing up to (finally!) decorate my porch for fall and I’m loving all this gorgeous inspiration!
So many wonderful fall ideas, Paula. Loving the gourds with the purple mums…but that bicycle has to be my favorite! xoxo
Oh my goodness, Paula! I feel like I’m there! There are so many great decorating ideas in here. I especially love the way they line some of the beds with pumpkins, and I definitely want to try adding a pumpkin to some of my urns. Vermont is a spectacular place to spend fall. When I lived in New England, I took advantage of making fall foliage trips throughout the area. This post really took me back in time.
Thanks for the eye candy fall tour! I really enjoyed it as I’m stuck inside right now after surgery on my foot (and in a cast for 2 months). It was nice to go outside with you.
So many simple and yet beautiful ideas for fall decor using natures bounty!
Beautiful photos! I really like the green pumpkins. They definitely add a different pop of color for the season. The homes there are beautiful so I can see why you enjoy the area so much. Thanks for sharing some great inspiration.
Looks like an absolutely beautiful place. Thanks so much for sharing and so glad you enjoyed your visit.
This town really knows how to do fall decor! This year I tried the pumpkin stack & it looks so good. Thanks for sharing all these fun ideas.
I really liked the green stacking ones and the window boxes! Thanks for the suggestions!!!
I love all these natural decorations. Thank you for sharing them! I’m visiting from the Embracing Home and Family link up. Have a great weekend Maryjo!
Looks like such a cute town! What pretty pumpkins, and I’m always a sucker for a pumpkin stack!
Oh, I love all your pictures! I didn’t realize you go to VT so often! I’m so glad you had a nice trip.
I have never been to Vermont but here it is beautiful! I hope to make it there someday. I love that they line their fronts with pumpkins. Thanks for showing us the beautiful decor and giving us that Fall
I just told my husband that we need to go to Woodstock next fall! Thanks my friend…ever consider a travel blog?
There are some wonderful ideas here. Thanks for sharing.
So much inspiration here! I love all of the different creative ways to decorate with pumpkins! Thank you for joining us at Embracing Home and Family!
