Interior designer and blogger Lorri Dyner shares her favorite fall décor for getting your front door suitably festive for autumn.

I love it when my neighbors decorate their front doors for fall. When I run (okay, more like walk) through the ‘hood every morning, all the wreaths and pumpkins make me feel grateful that a new, beautiful fall season is here.

But I also know how intimidating it can be to decorate your front door for fall. Who has time, right? And where do you get all that stuff, anyway?

I totally get it. But I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. There’s a simple formula for getting your front door fall-ready in a snap: All you need to do is choose from three elements.

1) Pumpkins and Mums

Let’s start with the easiest idea. (I’m lumping these two together because they go hand-in-hand.)  Here are places where you can find pumpkins and mums: Your local grocery store, Trader Joe’s (for the best prices), Costco, and Home Depot.

Here are the instructions: Bring pumpkins and mums home. Pile them along the sides of your front door. Done! Seriously, does it get easier than that? And look how pretty it is.

2) The Wreath

If you want to take it slightly up a notch, I suggest adding in element number two, the wreath.

In the photo below, what really makes the scene say “fall” is the wreath (okay, and the pumpkins). But doesn’t that wreath really make the scene?

Of course, online shopping makes all of this easier. Here’s a great one – reasonably priced – that has that fall look:

3) Corn Stalks

This is one of my go-to fall decorating tricks! Buy some dried out corn stalks, prop them up, and call it a day. The stalks add autumnal flair without feeling too dramatic. I even did it on my own front door a few years ago and got a great response from passers-by:

I found my corn stalks at the Home Depot! They are so inexpensive!  You can also try a local nursery.
