Fall Porch Ideas

No matter the size of your porch, you can decorate it with style.  Today we’ll discuss easy ways to embrace fall on your front porch. Most of the porches everyone loves are loaded with pumpkins.  Sometimes it looks like there is little room to walk into the home because of the amount of decorations. I personally prefer a simple approach, but we all can pick and choose what ideas we use. Just a reminder that it isn’t safe to put pumpkins and flowers in front of the door or filling most of the steps. That’s a trip hazard.   The goal is for a welcoming entry with easy access. Now, let’s explore some beautiful ideas.

October Autumn Table

It’s fall in central Florida, and the big cold spell that went across the country brought slightly lower temperatures and a low humidity.  It’s been really beautiful days with highs in the low 80’s and maybe even 79 degrees F with blue skies.  We’re getting a little rain from the tropical stom in the Gulf going over Mexico, but it’s nothing bad.

End of September Home

My home is filled with coastal colors which is not easy to change for fall. This year the seasonal changes to my coastal Florida home are the addition of more wood, textures, and neutral color.  My front door opens directly in the living room.  I made a gallery wall last year at the entry with a vintage farmhouse sign, a framed piece of art by my father, a framed house blessing, and a white wooden hook for seasonal changes.  This fall on the hook I have a vintage thrift store wreath I got a couple of years ago.

Autumn Picture Ledge

For fall I am adding texture, natural materials, and rustic details. My goal is a rustic coastal home with lots of tans, textures, and browns.  I wanted my heron printable from the classic book, Birds of Australia, on the dining room picture ledge. I put it in a new aged white frame and added a shabby chic dollar store pumpkin on each end.  I made those a few years ago.  I measured a length of jute against it for size and adjusted the length.

Dollar Store Fall Candle

I’ve been adding fall to various parts of my home – the futon, flower arrangements, and wall art.  I wanted something a little special to add to my planter of green vines.  A visit to Dollar Tree and I came home with an LED candle and a packet of fall sticker of pumpkins and maple leaves. The stickers have a wood look to them which is perfect!
