1. Decorate with Pumpkins

Nothing says fall like pumpkins! Get your front porch ready for the season by decorating with orange, white, or green pumpkins. You can place them on either side of your door for a symmetrical look or stack them on the stairs leading to your home. These gourds will have your front porch looking like it just came out of a magazine! 

Tip: You can have your kids paint them different designs for a personalized look, or stencil your house numbers right on the pumpkin! 


2. Get Autumnal with Harvest Decor

No one will doubt your love of fall with these harvest decorations! You can go all out with adorable his and her scarecrows or keep it simple with dried flower arrangements. Go with a monochromatic theme for a simple and elegant front porch look! 


3. Decorative Wreaths for Every Occasion

Why wait for the Holidays? It’s a new season and time for a new wreath! An elegant fall wreath is exactly what your front door needs. Be sure to measure the width of door before you start shopping, so you don’t overpower the space with too large of a wreath. You can have fun styling because there are plenty of wreaths to choose from! You can get pinecones, leaves, or even pumpkins. 


4. Get Cozy with Outdoor Pillows

Just because the cold weather is coming in doesn’t mean you have to stay inside! Get cozy with outdoor pillows, throw blankets, and cushions. When choosing outdoor pillows look for durable materials and fall colours like orange, yellow, red, and brown. What are you waiting for? Cuddle up to your favourite person (or animal), grab a cup of cocoa and take in all the gorgeous fall colours! 


5. Keep the Inside of Your House Clean with a Fall Themed Outdoor Mat

Welcome your guests with an inviting addition to your front porch! Available in various styles, outdoor mats are a great way to show off your personality. Fall outdoor mats are thinner than winter ones but are still sturdy enough to handle those autumn leaves. 


6. Show Off Your Fall Gardening Skills

Don’t put your trowels away! While your summer blooms may have faded, fall flowers can look perfect on your porch. Grab a planter and fill them with seasonal blooms chrysanthemums, violas, or pansies. You can opt for a colourful display, like all purple violas, or a chic white selection of mums. Pair them with a few pumpkins and gourds and you’ll have a perfectly styled entryway!
