It’s that time of year again where we all start looking for new ways to decorate our home for fall. With that in mind, I thought I’d share some fall front porch decorating ideas!
If you’ve followed me over the years, you know I love to switch out my porch decor and really embrace the fall season. There’s something so welcoming and charming about a porch that’s decorated for fall. It’s the first way you really get to set the stage welcoming family and friends into your home. Over the years, I’ve done several different styles on my front porch, and as I’ve developed my own personal style, I’ve found I like to keep my porch on the simpler side, but that certainly doesn’t mean simple is best!
Let’s take a peek at the past fall front porches I’ve decorated…
In 2013, I built this huge welcome sign! It’s such a show stopper for any season, but it looks especially beautiful with cornstalks! If your porch isn’t quite big enough for this, you can always scale it down to fit your space better.
You can see more of my 2013 porch here, but if you really want to get yourself in the fall, or Halloween season, you can create your own Chalkboard sign pole! Change out the chalk on the arrows, and you’re good to go!
(Apparently, I skipped sharing my 2014 fall front porch. I can’t find it in the archives.)
In 2015, I paired back my decorating to include my huge welcome sign and some cornstalks. Simple, but beautiful, and perfectly fall! Take the tour here.
You can also make your own wreath to hang! It’s easier than you think, and you can really customize it to fit your style or the colors you like best. I shared my tutorial here.
In 2016, I helped my best friend, Chelsea, decorate her front porch. We built her own welcome sign and filled the porch with pumpkins, cornstalks and tree branches. The combination was lovely.
That same year, I decorated my mom and dad’s front porch as well. We filled their porch with cornstalks, pumpkins, cabbage from their garden and several mums. It felt colorful and welcoming!
And that same year, I carried on the tradition of using cornstalks for my front porch. Add in a big wreath and several pumpkins, and you have a perfect fall display.
In 2017, my garden was filled to the brim with pumpkins, so I took full advantage and layered them all over the front porch. This was quite possibly one of my favorite versions of this porch…
I used a large lantern to help to create the perfect backdrop for the vibrant pumpkins and it added such a lovely glow in the evenings.
And that, brings us to today! Since our Willow House wasn’t ready for any sort of fall decorating last year, I’m really excited to decorate the porch this year! I have so many different ideas spinning around, but one thing is for certain… they all involve cornstalks! In my mind, fall isn’t fall without cornstalks on the front porch, and even though I have a smaller area to decorate, I’m looking forward to adding a big burst of fall to our exterior! Stay tuned!
I hope these ideas spark some creativity for you! If you do some fall porch decorating of your own, I’d love to see it! Head on over to my facebook page and share a picture with me!
