Isn’t decorating for the seasons so fun?

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

How Do I Decorate My Porch For Fall?

Whether its covered with a roof or open with a small roofline like mine, there are so many ways to decorate a porch for fall!

Adding traditional fall decor such as pumpkins, gourds, wreaths, plants and lanterns are great decorating staples.

Depending on what you have, think outside the box and add things you love.

That may include vintage items, blankets, cozy outdoor furniture, and area rugs.

How Do I Decorate My Front Door For Fall?

There are a few ways to decorate a front door for fall.

Wreaths are always a good choice.

Whether you DIY or buy new, wreaths add so much color and texture to a front porch as well as bring your outdoor fall decorating style together.

In addition to wreaths, door baskets filled with faux flowers or swags are a beautiful options too.

Fall Decorating Ideas for Porch

When we renovated our home 15 years ago, we considered adding a full-sized front porch to 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 fully 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 walkway 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 an autumn color palette that are emerging in the cottage garden.

Some years it’s 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!

  7. Oh Stacy what a stunning Fall entrance you have created! Between all the pumpkins and flowers I could stare at it all day! Crossing my fingers your dogs stay away this year!😆 Pinned!

    1. Thanks so much Kelly!!! It was so fun hopping with you again! They are too much – I’ve seen her sniffing around them! LOL! Have the best weekend!!! xoxoxo

    2. Your porch always looks so pretty.

      We haven’t taken the leap with the front porch yet.

      I have been waiting for it too cool down a bit.

      I gave been drying hydrangeas.

      Sadly because if the heavy rains we recently had, it may be the first time in 7 years. I may not have a ton of limelight hydrangeas to dry.

      Enter sad face. Your gardens truly amazed mr

  8. Stacy – your porch is gorgeous and blends seamlessly with your beautiful gardens. I love your rounded steps … they’re bring a uniqueness enhances the charm. You’ve inspired me to get out in our 90+ heat and buy pumpkins to add to my porch! xo

  9. 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.


    1. 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.
