The Fall Front Porch

Yeah, we finally have a front porch. The house we bought last year has a front porch and I so love to decorate it. I find that decorating the front porch can be so much fun and it makes a home very inviting. I especiall love Fall decorations because the colors are so beautiful. You can keep Fall decorations up pretty much from the beginning of October through Thanksgiving (or until you put up your Christmas decorations). I found several photos that helped to inspire me with ideas for my Fall front porch. I hope you get inspired too!

Pumpkins, gourds, fall leaves and fall berries all give great color and decoration to the porch. They each last a long time on the porch as long as the aren't carved (note: when you carve a pumkin it only lasts a few days). I love using vintage pieces that add character to the porch, like the one shown here. 


 I love black mixed in with the fall colors. Black provides such a great contrast to the orange of the pumkins and the other fall colors. Mental note: I really want a pair of those rustic urns in the back :) I think I want that front door too... Imagine how pretty this porch would be at night with all of those candles lit.  Love it!


Scarecrows and hay are often used in fall decor. Above is a great example mixed with pumkins and some nice fall flowers. Decorating the steps is a nice way to add layers and depth to the porch decor.



These lantens with pumpkins would also work well on a table both indoors or outdoors.
Fall leaves would also look amazing filling a lantern or sitting below the candles.


If you have a rear porch or back yard that you frequent, remember you can decorate it too.
Have fun with it... and Happy decorating!!!
