For many homeowners, one of the joys of fall is decorating in the rich colors of the season. The front porch is one of the best places to start because there are so many options available to express your personal style. We’ve tracked down some great buys that will help make your porch more cozy so you can enjoy the cool, autumn nights outdoors.

In a new fall-themed slideshow, the home experts at BobVila.com suggest the following eight items:

  • Warm Tartan Blanket: Stay warm while enjoying your porch with this timeless outdoor blanket.
  • Boot Kick: This throwback from a time when the roads were paved in dirt is perfect for keeping your floors dirt-free.
  • Planter Box: Fill it with the colorful foliage of fall to add warmth to the entrance of your home.
  • Seasonal Door Hang: The options on fall-themed door and wall hangs are endless. Check your favorite home store or order online to shop an even wider selection.
