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