Need ideas to style the prettiest fall porch? Get lots of fall decorating ideas with pictures to help.
Today let’s talk about fall porch decorating ideas! These are ideas that will work no matter what size of porch you have. But, I think small porches do have their share of special needs so I’m sharing lots of ideas with a small porch in mind!
While I’m up to my eyeballs in fall decorating I thought you would like ideas and inspiration for your fall porch! This is last year’s porch but this post is filled with so many easy and doable ideas you can use!
Look for a fall porch and patio tour later this month!
I’ve decorated our front porch for fall with lots of fall’s natural beauty! White pumpkins and mums are the stars of this year’s decor!
You don’t need a big front porch to make is attention-worthy!
Here are some tips that will help fall porch decorating a lot easier!
DRESS UP YOUR FRONT DOOR FOR FALL
One of the first things I do at the beginning of any season is to hang the biggest, fluffiest and prettiest wreath on my front door!
This one thing will make your front porch looks so festive!
I dug out a burlap wreath I made a few years ago to hang on the front door. I like how the color of the door and the color of the wreath work together.
You can see how I make this big NEUTRAL FALL WREATH HERE.
Making your own wreath instead of buying one can save you lots of $$$ and you can coordinate it with your color palette.

Did you notice the “hello” decal on my front door? You can see this decal and other front door decals HERE. Also, I have step by step directions about how to apply it! SUPER EASY!
LAYER FALL INSPIRED RUGS WHEN YOU DECORATE A PORCH FOR FALL
How cute is this doormat layered with a black and white striped rug?
Adding a new seasonal doormat is one of the best fall porch decorating ideas!
We probably don’t think about our doormat too often but I bet most of us could use a new one!
I love to buy a doormat for different seasons. It is such an inexpensive investment and will create such a pretty welcome when paired with a rug under it!
You can see lots of fall doormat and pretty rugs to put under them in my post DRESSING UP A DOORMAT.
ADD SEATING TO A FALL PORCH
Even though our front porch is small, I was able to add a black bench to it.
I think adding a bench or rocker or attractive chair to a front porch makes it just so welcoming!!!!
So if you have room on your porch add a little seating!

USE REPEATED COLORS AND OBJECTS ON YOUR FRONT PORCH
Repeating color and elements is an interior design trick to create a cohesive room so this tips will also work in your outdoor spaces.
USING COLOR TO PULL DECOR TOGETHER
Because my front door is a light color and so is quite a bit of the front of our home I used black to ground it a bit.
A black bench is not only a great place to sit or have packages dropped off it is a great decor choice!
So was a tall black self-watering planter placed opposite the black bench.
I filled the planter with white mums, ornamental peppers, flowering kale and cabbage, and other flowers that will do well when the weather gets cooler.
The other color you see repeated on the porch is white! I love black and white together! It creates a crisp look!
USING OBJECTS TO PULL A LOOK TOGETHER
The best things you can use to create a cohesive looking porch this time of the year are natural fall elements.
Repeating the same ones over and over on your porch will make your porch looks pulled together!
White pumpkins in various sizes dot my front porch this fall!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE pumpkins and use them liberally!
White mums are another repeated element and so are the leaves that the wind blew in!
EXTENDING DECOR OFF YOUR PORCH
Another great fall porch decorating idea, especially for a small-ish porch is to extend fall decorations off the porch!
Instead of keeping all the fall decor on just the porch, I added a large round planter with the same kinds of flowers in the tall planter to our front garden. Actually, I put it right in the mulch!
And I added a grouping of white pumpkins in front of it.
You can see the DOT SELF WATERING PLANTER HERE.
Also, white mums and pumpkins were added to the walk in front of the porch.
It gives the illusion of extending the porch!
Your front porch is prime decorating real estate!
No matter how big or small or in between your front porch is all these porch decorating tips will work!
Let’s decorate our front door and porch for beautiful fall!
Love the ideas. What paint color is the front door?
It looks greyhound Grey to me!
It’s really more of a clay color.
Doreen asked the same question. See my answer there. Hope this is helpful
What is the name of the paint color on your front door?
Hi Angela, I think it is Manchester Tan by Benjamin Moore. The door was painted when we moved in and this color was the closest match.
Love your porch decor of black and white, one of my favorite combinations.
What a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a cup of cider and reflect on the beauty our Lord has created!
I’m so excited about cider weather! And I always marvel at God’s creative handiwork.
Amazing! It’s very atmospheric and cozy in an autumn way. I especially like the wreath
How do you hang the wreath on your front door? Thank you.
We screwed a hook into the door and painted it the same color as the door. If this is something you do not want to do, try Command Hooks for outdoor use. Hope this is helpful.
I love the basket!! Where did you purchase it from?

Thanks for all the ideas – especially love the white pumpkins.
When do you put out your fall decorations? I have relatives coming into town for my daughter’s wedding on the first official day of Autumn. But is the end of September too early? I made your burlap wreath a couple of years ago! And I use faux pumpkins on my little porch and in my window box, because the squirrels eat the real ones! Thanks!
Put out those fall decorations! They will add to the festivities! Congratulations on your daughter’s wedding. Many blessings to the couple.
Suggestions for where we may find a bench like this? It is lovely, i haven’t seen one like this around my area. thank you ~
Hi KH, I found my bench at Wayfair but it must no longer be in stock. However, I found a gorgeous bench by Polywood. Polywood is THE BEST product for outdoor furniture. Check this one out:https://rstyle.me/+MsIliQyZcwtvBOf_0xeo8Q
Gorgeous, gorgeous & gorgeous. Not ready for the fall yet, but your front porch idea is a winner with me
