terrela...do you know if the birds are perching on the decor directly, or is there a convenient perch overhead? I ask because we noticed a lot of bird droppings just outside the back door at our last house, and we realized that the birds were perching in a convenient nook over the doorway. Once we filled this in with a wedge-shaped piece of wood they couldn't perch there anymore and the poop disappeared. If you had a way to eliminate potential perches then this might solve your problem without hurting the birds.

Also, painting the ceiling of your porch sky blue will keep birds away. The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan uses this to keep birds from the huge porch area

Go from fall theme to winter theme rather than a specific holiday. Gets me through til spring.
