How do You Decorate a Porch with Mums?

Mums are the perfect flower to decorate your outdoor spaces with during the fall for a number of reasons. They can be found in a wide range of beautiful colors and various sizes that will make your porch noticeable from miles away! They grow quickly and are super easy to maintain, so you won’t have to worry about their upkeep. The best thing about them is that their blossoms are so appealing you don’t have to do much in order to create an eye-catching decor.  For a simple rustic aesthetic, you can use metal pots in different shapes and sizes and mix and match mums in two or three colors. If you want to go for a more minimalist look, choose white or yellow mums and simple white pots to give your porch a polished look for the upcoming season! You can incorporate other elements typical for a harvest decor such as:

  • pumpkins 
  • pine cones
  • autumn foliage
  • sage
  • dried wheat
