Ideas to Dress up Your Front Porch for Fall

Ideas to Dress up Your Front Porch for Fall

Looking for great decor ideas for your front porch for fall? Even though summertime is coming to a close, you don’t need to say goodbye to spending your days outside just yet. Fall is one of the best seasons to truly take in the beauty of Mother Nature as she moves us closer to the winter season.

Your porch is where you get to see all this take place. What better way to watch the leaves falling from the trees and the majestic sunset than from your porch? 

Decorating your porch with the new season in mind is a great way to enjoy its weather even more.

However, it can be difficult to dress your porch in a way that’s seasonal while not being cheesy. That’s why we’ve rounded up the 10 best porch ideas to help you dress up your front door this fall season. 

Mix and Match with Different Colours 

Fall is an array of different colours. You want your fall-inspired porch design to incorporate that. Mixing and matching with different colours is a great way to achieve this. 

Make your porch stand out by collecting flowers in every shade you can find. Yellows, peaches, oranges, and dark reds are all great.

You can then add these pots of different fall flower arrangements around your porch or back swing. From here, arrange pumpkins of varied colours and sizes around the arrangement for a wild display of colour.

Thiessen Orchards has a variety of mums, pumpkins, gourds, straw bales and more for all your fall decorating! The orchard is located directly beside The Flower Shop at Thiessen’s (open September & October only).

Go for a Minimalist Design 

Maybe you don’t want to be too extravagant with your porch decoration scheme.

Keeping it simple with small elements can help you achieve a minimalistic design that’ll have your guests smiling as they walk into your home. However, some minimalist designs sometimes look too plain and boring.

You can prevent this by adding a small display of pumpkins and white accent chair with a basket full of stalks. A burst of colour with some carefully placed autumnal decor is a great way to balance out your minimalistic design while still keeping your porch balanced. 

Add a Fall-Inspired Wreath 

Adding a wreath on your door isn’t only for Christmas. Make your own beautiful fall wreath with some seasonal decor like mini pumpkins and cornstalks.

This fall-inspired wreath is a perfect addition to your porch decor when paired with a pumpkin patch arrangement. Although minimal, this design adds a great torch to your porch and can make it feel cozy. 

Create a Symmetrical Arrangement 

You can never go wrong with a symmetrical arrangement. Decorate your porch with a muted color palette, white pumpkins, a plaid blanket, and some corn husks. One side of your porch should reflect the other to create balance. 

Add Autumn Hues 

Autumn colours are the best way to add a pop of colour to your outdoor space while still blurring the lines between Mother Nature and your porch decoration. A cute simple way to do this is use a ceramic pumpkin as flower pot, and fill it with autumn flower colours.

This achieves an autumnal palette while also including more natural elements in your outdoor fall decorations. 

Let Mother Nature Shine 

Cover your porch with earthy accents. This will let Mother Nature shine across your porch. When you want to achieve this design idea, add rough texture and rich colours to your decorations. Dark wood, bold colours, and seasonal plants are great additions.

Get Creative with Some Cornstalks or Rye 

You can add some wood crates that include cornstalks or rye next to your porch door. You can dress up the scene with some wildflowers and tiny gourds to create a cozy and festive mood.

If you have a porch swing, you can also add some cornstalks next to it with throw blankets and outdoor pillows.
