Today I am sharing how I decorated our front porch for fall without breaking the bank. As much as I love decorating for the seasons, I don’t love spending a lot of money to do so. One of my favorite ways to stretch my decorating budget is to mix a few new pieces with items I already have.
Another way to make your decorating budget go a little further is to go with faux. Using artificial blooms is a great way to save. Not only do you eliminate the risk of the real stuff dying before the season is over, but you can also reuse them year after year. That’s a savings that keeps on saving! 😉
TIP: Mix in some real stuff with your faux pieces to keep the look fresh! (Example: real pine cones and pumpkins mixed in with artificial flowers and garland.)
