Summer has officially passed and the fall season is upon us! As the nights get longer and the air gets crisper, a wonderful season comes. We don’t know about you, but fall is one of our favorite seasons to enjoy! The bonfires, pumpkin patch, apple orchard, and crisp leaves are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. When it comes to decorating for fall, it can oftentimes feel unnecessary when the summer flowers and porch furniture is out. However, adding a few fall elements to your front porch will give a fresh new look that will be sure to invite any guest in! Here are a few of our favorite ways to decorate the front porch.

Chrysanthemums (Mums)

What better way to add color to your front porch than with bright colored flowers? Originating in in East Asia, the Chrysanthemum (also known as Mums) come in a variety of colors such as yellow, burgundy, purple, and red. Find a few mum plants that are just about to bloom and consider transplanting them in a pot for a nice, finishing touch. We also recommend using a plant stand or crate box to have a variety of heights to give some flavor and interest to your space.

Pumpkins and Gourds

Who really could decorate a front porch for autumn without a nice pumpkin and a variety of gourds? Pumpkins and gourds add a wonderful burst of bright orange and warm tones to any front porch. We like varying the size of the gourds to give character and interest to your porch. Consider having them trail down the stair in a variety of directions to give a natural, whimsical look.


Our final recommendation is to add a classic lantern or two to your porch for a classic twist. We suggest purchasing a lantern with a battery LED flickering light to add a cozy ambiance to your porch. This is an unexpected touch that will leave a lasting impression that can be a wonderful final touch.
