Simple Fall Porch Decorating Ideas With Big Impact
Fall Porch Color PaletteSelect the color palette for your fall front porch decor. Do you love traditional autumn harvest colors such as oranges, rusts, burgundy and yellows? Add orange pumpkins, yellow mums and ornamental kale. Or do you prefer neutrals like white, beige, black and brown? Choose the autumn hues you love best and repeat them for a designer look!
Front Door WreathThe wreath is the star of the show for curb appeal to welcome guests and family to your home! It adds charm, style and an inviting, welcoming look to a home. Use a wreath you already own and add a few new fall stems to it to make it feel new! It doesn’t get any easier than using a wreath you already own and adding a couple of new fall decorations to it! I’ve had this glam fall wreath for a few years and I added 4 new metallic leaf stems to give it a bit more layers and sparkle.
Potted Flowers and PlantsPick your favorite fall plant or flower and add a couple of them to your front porch! My favorite fall flower are white mums with yellow centers so I added one big pot onto our front pillars. So simple! Here are some fall foliage, plant and flower ideas: Ornamental cabbage, sedum, purple fountain grass, mums, asters.
Corn Stalks and Hay BalesA bundle or two of corn stalks is a pretty way to add a fall look to your porch. Prop them up in a corner or place them in tall planters! NOTE: remove any cobs of corn that may be on them! I bought corn stalks one year, left the corn cobs on them and the raccoons and crows devoured them and made a huge mess! Add a couple of hay bales if your porch is big enough for that autumn fresh from the farm feeling.
Faux PlantsWant simple? Use faux plants and flowers in some urns by your front door! There are so many gorgeous faux leafy branches and faux flowers to choose from and they are typically inexpensive. They can be used year after year so your decorating dollar goes so much further! I added these faux maple branches in silver, bronze and gold to my tall black planters that I’ve raved to you about before! Mix them with real birch branches for a festive Fall look!
LightingAdd extra lighting to your porch for a gorgeous glow at night. With the days getting shorter its so pretty to have extra lighting add a twinkle to your porch to increase your curb appeal! Along with my battery operated candles in my lanterns I have spot lights in my favorite planters that come on at dusk! They shine a gorgeous light up into the curly willow and its so pretty at night!
LanternsIf you have space add some lanterns decorated with fall leaves, acorns and mini pumpkins! I bought a leaf garland and cut it into 4 pieces, placing each piece around the candle in my lantern. Then I tossed in a few white acorns and mini pumpkins. You could also add some fall garland around the top!
Pumpkins or GourdsNothing says fall like pumpkins and gourds! I love my faux white pumpkins and scattered them around my front planters. You can use real or faux gourds and pumpkins in baskets or spilling down your steps to welcome fall to the exterior of your home. Heirloom pumpkins in shades of blue, green and peachy pink add a fun look too!

Layered Front Door RugsAdd a small area rug under your front door mat to add some color and pattern to your fall porch! I love this 30 x 40 gray and white rug that I added under my welcome mat! You could use a neutral color like I did or add a rug in a fall color like rust, goldenrod yellow or merlot.
Fall Pillows and Blankets:Add some pretty fall pillows to a bench or a couple of chairs! A throw blanket or two will add ambiance, texture and style. Your front porch will be decorated in style from the first day of fall until Thanksgiving with these ideas! Tweak the decor a bit for Halloween by adding a few black accents.
