Fall Porch Decorating Ideas
Fall Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch
What better place to welcome the change in season than right at your own front door! Let the natural elements of the fall harvest inspire your front porch décor for the season.
Embrace Autumn’s Color Palette
Vibrant gold, deep rust, pumpkin orange and earthy browns set the stage. Adorn your front porch with garlands of fall-colored leaves, cluster pumpkins and corn-gourds in a flower wagon. Make your house feel like a home with a country crock that calls out your family’s name. Fill the crocks with decorative sunflowers or mums. Add a pretty autumn door mat for a pop of color.
Think wreaths are only for Christmas? Think again. Try hanging a fall wreath or swag on the front door, under a mailbox or address sign, or even along a deck rail.
Arrange rustic painted pumpkins by the front door and down your front steps. Fill planters with firewood kindling, Indian corn, pinecones or seasonal squash. Plant Mexican sage, kale, sunflowers or mums in vintage pots and then arrange them among the pumpkins for a welcoming entrance.
Make it Homey
Pillows and warm throw blanket on your bench or swing chair hammock will keep you cozy and warm on brisk fall evenings. A mix of gourds and mini pumpkins in a country-style basket or classic wooden tray will create a rustic touch on a patio table.
