How to Redecorate Your Porch for Fall

Can you believe that the (official!) first day of fall is coming up in ONE week?! That’s right, September 22nd is approaching quickly! I’m not sure about you but I am READY to welcome autumn weather, pumpkin spice everything and cozy!

In fact, one of my favourite things to do with the start of a new season is to redecorate our front porch. I replace the wreaths on our front door to something seasonal and swap out my planters with florals and greenery that will adapt to the change in weather. Not to mention, I LOVE adding decor accents to match the time of year (helllooooo pumpkins!). So, today I thought I would share a round-up of where I get my favourite pieces from and how I decorate our porch for Fall!

Grab your pumpkin spice latte and let’s dive in!

How to decorate your front porch

1. Start with the basics

It doesn’t matter what season it is, you can find my Hello Doormat, faux plants, and Happy Place sign by our entryway all year long! I consider these our front porch staples!

2. Add some seasonal decor

It doesn’t take much to transition your porch from Summer to Fall! A quick trip to the pumpkin patch or investing in some VERY real looking faux pumpkins from Wayfair is all it takes. I like to add a mixture of faux and real pumpkins to our front porch. If you are going all out on faux pumpkins the one thing I would suggest is making sure you get a variety of colours and sizes. This makes them look more realistic, even though they are not! A couple of years ago I purchased a number of faux pumpkins from Wayfair, they were a bit of an investment but so worth it as we have already used them a number of times for styling and photoshoots and I can’t get over how real they look!

3. Mix in some foliage

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that Sam from Margaret Valley Landscaping is a total wizard when it comes to helping me plan out our garden beds all year long! Every season we also collaborate on a front porch design! This year we picked out a few Chrysanthemums, Sunflowers, Ornamental Kale, Cabbage, and Pansys. For the finishing touch, I like to add two faux wreaths on the front door!

4. Extend the decor

When decorating the porch area I always like to extend it beyond just the front door. I tend to go a little overboard but I love adding a mixture of plants and pumpkins to each side of steps leading up to the front door. I love the cascading effect and Fall vibes it creates!

5. Make it cozy

Last but not least, I always add a few seasonal pillows and blankets to the swing on our porch. I find that it adds such a cozy touch, especially for the autumn weather! Plus, any baskets that we have left on hand, I like putting a few plants in them! I find this really enhances the cozy vibe and adds some additional texture and warmth!

Well, there you have it! A super simple and easy guide to decorating your front porch for the autumn season!
