Looking for ways to spruce up your outdoor living spaces for fall? Wait until you see how I decorated the deck for fall. Here are some outdoor fall decorating ideas that you don’t want to miss.
Living in New Jersey, we get to experience the beauty of all seasons.
We watch our landscapes green up and bloom.
Enjoy our outdoor living spaces in the warmer months.
And get to see the foliage change before winter arrives.
Since I live in the northeast, it gets cold here pretty quickly in October.
So I want to enjoy our outdoor living spaces as much as possible before we go indoors for the winter.

Outdoor Fall Decorating Ideas for the Deck
One of my favorite outdoor living spaces to hang out is our deck.
We call it the outdoor oasis.
And this year, I decorated the deck for fall.
Because the season won’t last long out here, I spruced up some of my planters that were petering out with some mums, pansies and millet and tucked in a few pumpkins.
Since we covered the dining area on our deck with this gazebo, I can created this centerpiece using faux plants, pumpkins and greens.
I didn’t want to risk real pumpkins rotting on my farmhouse table, so I opted for faux everything here to keep it simple.
One of the things I get asked about all the time is this outdoor area rug.
I bought it last year and love it so much I bought a second one for the lower deck.
It’s held up really well and anchors the outdoor dining space.
I keep all of my houseplants out here until the first frost. They love the warmer months spent outdoors and thrive from the extra light.
Because late September/early October can get cold pretty quickly, I keep an eye on the weather to watch for thirty degree temps.
When the nights start dipping to the mid-upper thirties, I will start moving my houseplants back inside for the winter.
In addition to the deck, have you seen the outdoor fall decor on my front porch? I love how that turned out.
Before it gets really cold here, I’ll plant all of the pansies in the borders.
Did you know that they overwinter and will bounce back again in spring?
Pansies are not fans of scorching summer temps, so they’ll get leggy and finish up next summer. But I always plant them in fall so I can enjoy them in both fall and spring.
And you might be thinking, why don’t you plant the garden mums too?
I don’t go out of my way to plant them because they don’t always come back so it’s not worth the effort to me.
For me, I use garden mums with intention. And my intention is not to incorporate them into my borders where they’ll take up extra space and potentially not come back.
I’d rather plant these plants that are high performers, easy-care, look gorgeous and give you more bang for your buck.
