Fun Fall Porch
Not only is designing a beautiful front porch a fun way to introduce fall, but it’s also an important way to embrace the change that comes with a new season. There are plenty of great ways to decorate your front porch for fall, and plenty of great reasons to do so, too. Here are just a few:
- It’s an easy makeover. Even when it’s not efficient to redo your entire home, a few fun accents and fresh fall flowers like the daisies and mums in our Country Pumpkin Fall Bouquet are easy ways to give your home a seasonal makeover.
- It adds curb appeal. When your front porch looks good, your whole neighborhood looks good. Add curb appeal to your home’s look when you dress up the front porch for fall.
- It might Inspire your neighbors. Once they see how great your fall front porch looks, your neighbors will want to create their own fall porch-scapes. Share ideas and encourage creative thought for a festive, colorful neighborhood up and down the block.
- It will help you prep for the holidays. The appearance of pumpkins, gourds, hay bales and fall flowers like our basket of Fall Mums brings thoughts of the upcoming holidays. Help friends and family, as well as yourself, anticipate the approaching holidays when you decorate for the current fall season.
Choose Festive Containers for Your Front Porch Decor

Festive Fall Porch
Choosing fall-appropriate containers and vessels for your fall porch will make a difference in the appearance of fall all around you. Natural woods and metals, harvest-fresh accents, and rustic farm accouterments all work together to create a festive, unique fall look.
- Wooden barrels: Display fresh fall plants like the crotons in our Mixed Fall Planter atop wooden barrels. The rustic ribbon, terra cotta pot, and colorful fall hues will be a gorgeous addition to your fall porch.
- Little red wagon: Bring back thoughts of childhood visits to the farm with a little red wagon filled with a variety of pumpkins and gourds. Add a unique touch by including non-orange pumpkins, in colors like blues, grays, whites or greens.
- Haybales: Stacks of fresh hay are a great place to add a flannel blanket or balance a hand-painted sign for fall.
- Rocking chair: A classic rocking chair with matching throw pillows, blankets, and welcome mat in warm fall hues can tie the entire look of your fall porch together.
Add Some Creative Elements For Fall
Fall Decorated Porch
Choose a few fun and interesting ideas to mix into your fall porch decor for a fun flair you’ll love. You’ll be excited to spend time on your front porch enjoying the cooler weather, and your friends and family members will love the extra touches you included. Here are some fun ways to think outside the wooden crate:
- Chalkboard: Hang a chalkboard on your front door in place of a wreath or stand in the front window, on a ledge, or across the arms of your rocking chair with a fall message that inspires your guests.
- Painted pumpkins: Instead of carving faces into pumpkins, try painting them. Make silly faces or create elaborate designs in matching colors. Hollowed pumpkins make excellent containers for Russian sage or other blooming fall plants.
- Gourds and succulents: Mix these hardy plants with the season’s finest gourds on a tabletop tray for an abundant display of color and texture.
- Wreath of corn husks: Use Indian corn to create a fun front-door wreath or gather with colorful ribbon and tie to front porch posts for a festive look.
