Home decorating magazines filled with fall inspiration have arrived in my mailbox. And stores like Pottery Barn are stocked with cable knit blankets and plaid pillows. So I guess it’s not too early to share a few fall porch decorating ideas, is it?
The steps above are overflowing with brightly colored pumpkins and gourds. But what I especially love about this look is the use of green vines as an accent. Rather than typical mums, I think the greenery creates a nice contrast. You could create this same look but scale it down so it’s more economical.
Speaking of scaling down, the porch below looks equally charming with just a few small pumpkins leading up the steps.
While most people decorate the steps leading up to their porch, don’t forget the area beside the steps. If you’ve got room, consider adding some adornment outside of the porch and step rails.
I love how the owners of this camping RV decorated their deck for autumn. Who says you have to have a porch to get creative when the seasons change?
Sometimes (well, oftentimes) simplicity is best. A pair of large pumpkins make a statement resting on vintage wooden chairs.
Or you could go the other route and fill a wheelbarrow with miniature pumpkins!
If you grew zinnias in your garden this year, you’ve probably still got plenty of them blooming. They’d look great in a basket on your fall porch.
I still love this cabin porch in southwestern Michigan. We stayed there a couple of autumns ago when we visited my sister’s farm. Do you see the lone, gray pumpkin at the end of the porch?
And then there’s my fall porch from several years ago. I set up an al fresco dining area to enjoy a bit of Indian summer we were having.
