Get Your Front Porch Fall Ready with These Fun Ideas

October is here! And while the temps are still toying with our emotions, you may have noticed it’s getting darker earlier, which means one step closer to fall! October brings with it a fresh start and a new season. So why not give your front porch a fall makeover? 

Fall Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch

Not ready to commit to changing your interior decor just yet? Flex your creative muscles on your front porch instead with these fun tips from CountryLiving.com

Long Garland 

Frame your front door in a stunning, oversized garland. It may be the only added element needed to dress up your porch.

Cozy Cute

No need to break the bank, a few white mums and a trail of pumpkins up your steps or along your porch will do the trick! 

Simple & Stately

Wreaths aren’t just for the holidays! A natural-looking one that features seasonal greenery and flowers is the perfect way to liven up your porch for fall.

Cotton and Muted Colors

A cotton wreath and a lush arrangement of dried reeds and flowers are captivating.

Letter Wreath

Stake your claim to the season with a fun initial wreath like the one pictured here. Surrounded by faux white pumpkins and burlap, it’s the ultimate fall porch accessory.

Fall Crate Display

Add height to your porch pumpkins and fall plants by painting and stacking a few wooden crates. Align them however you please, then line with the bottom with hay.

Seasonal Symmetry

Matching cornstalks, an array of pastel pumpkins, and a charming door wreath bring this neutral color palette to life. 

Go Bright and Metallic

Plain orange pumpkins are classic, but you can also brighten up your front steps with cascades of copper, off-white, and gray. Bonus points if you have lanterns on hand that are fit to match.

Pumpkin Cart

Give your outdoor bar cart more time to shine this fall by stashing pumpkins and gourds on each shelf. Add more flair by interspersing a bit of greenery.

Orange Mums and Gourds

Use fresh flowers and lots of little gourds to welcome guests up the steps of your home.

Pillows and Plaid

Plaid pillows and blankets not only add a cozy look to your porch, but they’ll also keep you warm on chilly autumn nights!

Create a Defined Color Palette

A neutral color palette doesn’t have to be boring! Use spray paint to coat pumpkins in white or metallic gold for a modern but simple scheme.

Skip Out on Carving Pumpkins

Instead of spending hours carving or painting pumpkins, add some flair by tying a patterned ribbon around them.

Plant Seasonal Blooms in Rustic Planters

The summer days of tending to your garden may be dwindling, but garden lovers rejoice: Thanks to their late growing season, mums are the perfect floral for fall. Flank your door with olive buckets (search Etsy to find ’em) stuffed with these bright flowers.
