mericans love to decorate their homes - both inside
and out. We get ideas for decorating from websites,
social media, pinterest, television shows and magazines, and spend a lot of time and money on décor, to make
our homes beautiful and festive.

And, while the winter holidays are still the primary season
for outdoor decorating, there's an emerging trend of dressing
up our home exteriors for every season - including autumn.
Berks County garden centers and farm stores will soon
be stocked with mums, straw bales, corn shocks, Indian corn,
pumpkins, gourds and squashes, wreaths and other specialty
items to get you started with your outdoor fall decorating.
We talked to the president of one of Berks County's leading garden and gift centers about outdoor decorating trends
and what Berks Countians may be looking for when it comes
to decorating this fall.
Here's what Diane Salks, president of Riverview Tree &
Landscaping, Inc. and Riverview Gardens & Gifts, had to say.

It seems that more people each year are decorating
outdoors for the fall and Thanksgiving seasons. Why
do you think there's so much interest in outdoor
decorating?
People are increasingly social, and inviting friends and
family into their homes for parties and other events. Decorating the front of the home makes it inviting - it makes people
want to come in. We have seen an increase every year. There
is also much interest in seasonal decorating for the inside of
our homes. So many fine décor items are now available.

What outdoor areas are people most likely to want to
decorate?
Entryways, lamp posts, porches, mailboxes, front doors
and outdoor entertaining areas are likely areas for decorating.
You could do a fall-themed wreath for the front door, or a
pumpkin topiary for the porch. Be creative, and place your
creative decorations where they are most likely to be seen
and appreciated, Salks advised.

Your life
at your fingertips.
Helping you keep what matters
most safe and in your control.
