Looking for some fall porch decor ideas? Wait until you see these simple ways to style your porch for fall.

Isn’t decorating for the seasons so fun?

I just finished decorating my porch for fall and love how it turned out.

Inspired by what I did last year, I replanted my container garden with this new look.

For this year’s fall porch decor, I added lots of garden mums, pansies, pumpkins and gourds.

And I can’t wait to show you how it looks!

I’m so excited to be joining my good friends in the Fabulous Fall Porch Decor Tour. If you stopped by from Amy’s over at the Cuter Tudor welcome to my home and garden. She is such a great friend and has the most beautiful home!

Fall Porch Decor Idea

When we renovated our home 15 years ago, we considered adding a full sized front porch onto our home. It was high on the priority list, but there were other things we wanted to add to our home too.

And it wasn’t all within our budget.

So we had to make some decisions.

In lieu of having a full covered front porch, we opted for rounded brick paver steps with expansive gardens.

Not the same I know, but we opted for other amenities instead.

Someday I’ll have that big covered porch.

But this is what I have now and I love it!

When my kids were little, I used to sit here and watch them play in the front yard. Or watch them ride their bikes up and down the street.

Now I sit here among my cottage garden flowers and watch my dogs run around.

Let’s hope the dogs don’t wreck my pumpkins and gourds like they did a few years ago. You won’t believe what they did!

It’s sometimes challenging to decorate the front porch because the steps are rounded and my gardens are so expansive.

I want to decorate the front porch but keep it balanced with the front garden.

Whatever I do, it can’t compete with the front walkway garden.

Decorating With Outdoor Fall Decor

When I’m choosing my outdoor fall decor, I start with the fall colors that are emerging in the cottage garden.

Some years its purple and burgundy.

In others, it could be reds and oranges.

This year, yellows, pinks and purples are the inspiration.

And since I wanted to do something different from last year’s neutral front porch vibe.

This year’s outdoor fall decor is going a little bolder.

So I started with these gorgeous urns filled with lots of pretty fall flowers and foliage.

Then added several a few bright colored yellow mums.

Tucked in some fun pumpkins and gourds with some purple, blue, yellow and white pansies

And that’s it!

As the gardening season winds down, I’ll transplant the mums and pansies into the ground so they last a little longer.

But for now, I’m loving the look!

    Okay Stacey I know you live in NJ. Give me your secrets. Squirrels have eaten one pumpkin so far. They also ate our neighbors.

    We don’t buy mums anymore because for us they don’t make it and I figured out it’s because they don’t get enough sun.

    How do you get Pansies to not get eaten in the ground either? Rabbits, Squirrels not to mention deer eat ours

    Your gardens are beautiful help this fellow Jersey girl.

      Thanks so much Cindy!! I recently figured out that the squirrels eat the pumpkins but not gourds! I decorated with gourds last year and they never touched them – so far so good this year too! If I put any kind of pumpkin out they hollow them out! I spray my pansies with deer out to keep the deer away and they do really well! They come back every spring! I wrote a whole blog about garden mums – I am not their biggest fan as a garden plant but they are good for short-term decorating and that’s about it! I know they can be planted in the ground and can come back – I’ve done it before. But to me, they aren’t worth the effort or the garden space – they are only meant to last a short period of time (fall) so I buy them in late Sept or October so they will last longer.
