This was my fall front porch from last year. I used a variety of flowers to bring warmth and excitement to my porch. Shades of yellow, magenta and orange clearly welcome fall while allowing summer to live just a tad bit longer. I also added some vibrant sunflowers to my hanging door baskets to make the yellow pop. Lots of baskets and even wicker pumpkins create a warm country look.

Fall Porches: Pumpkins Galore

We love how Liz from Liz Marie Blog went all out with her pumpkins. Having steps leading to your front porch certainly makes this easier. She made beautiful use of the space by lining the stairs with an array of pumpkins, mixing unique colors and shapes for a freshly-picked-from-the-farm look.

We love how Robin from All Things Heart and Home added rustic hay bails on her front porch for a classic fall feel. She certainly brought the pumpkin patch home with her. Robin even added a cute fall wreath garnished with miniature pumpkins to complete the look.

You can’t create a fall look without festive pumpkins. It’s simply not done. Get the family involved and take your kiddos on a fun-filled adventure to the pumpkin patch where they can pick out their own pumpkins. Go for a variety of sizes and shapes to mix it up a little. Don’t be afraid to choose a variety of colors. Use white pumpkins like Taryn Whiteaker does to create a cleaner, tranquil look.  Orange pumpkins will give you classic fall vibes. Either way you can’t go wrong.

We are in love with how Kimberly at Serendipity Refined found the perfect balance between flowers and pumpkins. She even managed to pull off a light blue door in the midst of the orange and yellow accents surrounding. So adorable!

Fall Porches: Floral Inspiration

Another must-have for an inviting fall front porch are flowers! Fall is the perfect time to bring in a wide range of colors to your front door. Go for all shades of yellow and orange, and don’t be afraid to add some white flowers and leaves like Heather and Vanessa from At the Picket Fence. What a great way to welcome guests.

This is Jodie’s front porch from last fall and she really went all out with the flowers. The floral inspired wreath and the array of flowers beneath is a great way to mix the beauty of summer and fall seamlessly. She clearly wanted summer to stay just a littler longer. Just because summer is over, doesn’t mean flowers are out of style.

Fall Porches: Corn Husks for Days

Who said corn was just for the dinner table? Create the feel of the corn field right at your front door with towering husks on either side of the entryway. Jodie and I love how Susan at Between Naps on the Porch went all out and created a door garnish with sunflowers and corn. Add a warm, fall-inspired paint color to your front door to complete the look.

We absolutely love how Diana at Our Vintage Home Love didn’t hold back with her vintage farmhouse fall porch. She created a back-country, authentic farmhouse look with her rustic hay bails, distressed wood door and towering corn husks. It’s simply gorgeous.

Inspired Wreaths

Tracie from Cleverly Inspired adorned her beautiful glass front doors with fabulous fall leaf wreathes. Huge mums beautifully frame the space. It’s not overdone but perfectly welcoming.

Laura Trevey did a great job of creating a memorable fall front porch that is classic and unique all at once! We are loving the pumpkin and leaf filled wreath and matching garland.

Jodie and I love how from Martina from Northern Nesting created a simple and understated look while still making a fall statement. The pumpkins scattered along the porch and in the wreath really catch your eye. The grey door contrasts beauitfully with the vibrant orange as well.

Fall Porches: Door Garlands

If you’re looking for a clever way to incorporate fall to your front porch, try draping a corn garland across your door frame like Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict. Symmetry with her flowers and pumpkins complete the frame creating the perfect fall welcome.

Emily at Décor Chick added a vibrant red leaf garland around her sleek black door. Towers of orange pumpkins and a fun fall wagon create the perfect fall welcome.

Fall Porches: Chalkboard Art and Signs

Send your guests an inviting message before they even enter your home by adding a chalkboard sign to your front porch. Create a simple message like Daune from Cottage in the Oaks. Add pumpkins, leaves, and other fall foliage to create the right mood. If you aren’t particularly skilled at chalkboard art, don’t worry. We love using chalk pens and stencils to get just the look you want.

Vibrant Color Schemes



If you are going for more of a bold, fall look gravitate towards warmer shades like reds, yellows, oranges and dark greens. This will turn your front porch into a classic fall oasis that will make your neighbors envious. In my front fall front porch from last year, I used vibrant flowers to warm up the look. Don’t be afraid to take risks when it comes to color. Fall colors never have to be boring.

Fall Porches: Neutral Color Schemes

If you want a more subtle take on fall choose cooler tones like shades of white and blue together. Think white or tan pumpkins paired with light blue and neutral accents. This will give your front porch a tranquil, understated look that is still perfect for fall! We love how Beth at Home Stories A to Z created such a unique look with her pale blue front door, white flowers, and array of blue and white pumpkins.

Fall Porches: Cozy Seating

Welcome guests by turning your front porch into a cozy destination, perfect for chilly fall nights with a cup of hot cocoa and a warm blanket. We love how Yvonne from Stone Gable Blog turned an ordinary porch swing into an inviting retreat. Her neutral pillows blend easily with her plaid throw making it an ideal spot to relax and take in the beauty of fall.

We love how Shayna from the Wood Grain Cottage cozied up her front porch by adding plaid pillows to her adorable white rocking chairs. Corn husks and plenty of fall details create an undeniably fall mood that wows visitors and passers-by.

Rustic Lanterns

Add rustic lanterns to your front porch to create a relaxing mood lighting or simply fill with miniature pumpkins or leaves. Here are two examples we love. Ann from On Sutton Place filled her lanterns with yellow and orange pumpkins. Christina at The Frugal Homemaker filled her lanterns with simple white candles. We can’t choose which we prefer.
