5 Fun and Simple Autumn Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch

One of the best ways to celebrate fall is by highlighting with festive decorations on your front porch, door, and steps. Decorating for autumn will make your house look cheerful and welcoming for the season. Use these fun and fast decorating ideas from our design experts at Rose Hill Flowers to instantly boost your curb appeal and impress all your Nashville neighbors.

Mums and Pumpkins

Fall Flowers

The deep, bold colors of fall are part of their appeal as the weather cools and the general look of days is a bit more muted than the hot, bright days of summer. Chrysanthemums are undoubtedly the most popular type of flower for fall decorating. They bloom in just about every color found on the rainbow, including all the favorites for fall like yellow, red, gold, and orange. Plus, they’re in-season, so potted varieties will continue to bloom well beyond Thanksgiving Day. Mums look stunning with their bright, warm colors adorning a doorway or front porch. We recommend pairing them with other fall flowers and foliage like sunflowers, potted kale, croton plants, goldenrod, marigolds, and lantana.

Front Door Focus

However, you choose to decorate your front porch for fall, be sure to make your front door the focal point of the entire design. You can highlight the main entrance to your house with a creative take on the traditional wreath, like this welcoming basket of freshly picked apples, or you can stick with the elegance of a floral wreath. Look for one featuring fall foliage and other autumn embellishments like miniature pumpkins, pinecones, and festive ribbon. If your door won’t accommodate a hanging wreath or basket, decorate with a seasonal garland draped over your doorframe.

Pile Up the Pumpkins

Of course, no fall decorations would be complete without pumpkins! Choose a variety of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures and toss in a few unusual-looking gourds, too. Then create interesting groups around your front door or along your steps. To make sure your pumpkin display lasts through Thanksgiving Day, refrain from hollowing your pumpkins for Halloween. Instead, add a bit of playfulness to your design by painting your pumpkins with cute patterns or festive critters. Spray them gold or silver for a more elegant look or paint your house numbers on three or four to help guests find their way.

Cozy Cushions

Don’t move your outdoor furniture into storage just yet. Switch out your cushions and pillows featuring summery colors and designs for cozier versions. Look for plaid prints in cherry red, deep green, navy, and cinnamon, and opt for warmer fabrics like flannel and wool. Stack up a few warm blankets and brew a mug of hot apple cider to enjoy outdoors. The texture of Autumn is always welcoming and warm.

Autumn Accents

Use a variety of autumn accents to transition your seasonal display from October to November. Start the season with spooky elements like bats, spiderwebs, and ghosts. After the trick-or-treating has ended, trade them out for harvest decorations like owls, cornstalks, bales of hay, and scarecrows, and always include some of fall’s precious gem flowers.

Bring Autumn Indoors with Festive Floral Arrangements

You can bring the beauty of the season inside with fresh floral arrangements, bouquets, and centerpieces specially designed for fall.
