What Houzz contributors are saying:
10. Make a porch a fall destination. If your outdoor table is under the covering of a porch — or can be moved there — take the time to make a few seasonal changes to get the space ready for fall. First, add lights, if you don’t already have them, to create a warm glow. Next, bring out blankets and purchase a few fall-colored throw cushions to make the space feel cozy. For finishing touches if you’re eating outside, bring out candles or a bouquet of flowers from inside the house, and your porch will feel like a true extension of your home.MoreThe Artful Garden: Enchanting LightingEnjoy the Romance of Dining in a Classic Gravel GardenBrowse outdoor dining furniture
3. Set up an outdoor dining space. Eating al fresco is even more pleasant when you've taken care to make your space as comfy as possible. Start by using a table as big as will comfortably fit on your porch — ample room is best for leisurely meals. Add plump cushions to chairs, line your table with lanterns and hang string lights overhead.
