Cheerful ceramic pumpkins make a delightful trio on the patio ll The Home Depot Garden Club

If you’re all about pumpkins and chrysanthemums when decorating your indoor or outdoor space, then you prefer the classics for Halloween and harvest decor.

You prefer the textures of orange and ghost pumpkins, gourds and mums mixed with all the elegance and beauty that the season offers. The classic Halloween and harvest style is timeless and never goes out of style. 

Whether you’re decorating around the fire pit or fireplace or on your covered porch or entryway, it’s the beauty of fall that attracts you to this style.

 

Mums on Porch | The Home Depot's Garden Club

When decorating, begin with mums, a fall favorite annual, in colors ranging from sunshine yellow and deep magenta to garnet red and harvest orange.

Drop mums directly into containers or urns in your outdoor space, such as at your entryway or balcony. You could also pick up a ready-made fall planter with a mix of flowers and other plants at The Home Depot Garden Center.

Prefer a DIY project? Then create a decorative farmhouse-style cone to hang by your entryway or front door.

 

Classic harvest style for your indoor or outdoor space ll The Home Depot Garden Club

Whether inside or out, stacks of decorative or real pumpkins become topiaries next to the fireplace or in your outdoor space.

Try stacks of pumpkins atop urn planters for added height and add mums, pinecones, ornamental peppers and other live plants for a beautiful harvest display. Gather pinecones and display in a vintage bowl or container.

 

Add a wreath and garland of faux leaves around your mantel ll The Home Depot Garden Club

Fall just wouldn’t be complete without a harvest wreath. Besides hanging on a door, try other places to hang your wreath. Decorative wreaths, faux or live, look amazing hung above the mantel or from a mirror, on an inside wall or on the deck. 

Pair your wreath with decorative garland and string it around your indoor or outdoor space.
