Don’t you just love all seeing all of the fabulous fall porch displays each year? Fall is in the air and bloggers and home decorators are busy cozying up their porches for this glorious season. Today I am sharing tips for creating fabulous fall porch displays using beautiful fall porches for inspiration. *This post contains affiliate links and/or sponsored content.

Fall is the wonderful season when we cozy up our homes and create warm and welcoming interior spaces. Of course it is also a time for our porches and landscapes to really take center stage as they showcase the beauty of autumn’s splendor. Pumpkins, mums, lanterns, Indian corn, bales of hay and corn stalks are traditionally used to create beautiful and welcoming fall porch displays.

Whether you prefer traditional bold colors or the softer and more muted tones that have become so popular in recent years, adding pumpkins to the front porch is a must for creating a fabulous fall porch display. I love the simplicity of pumpkins in urns. Here the addition of some fading hydrangeas add texture and interest.

Fall containers can be absolutely stunning! There are so many different combinations of late summer flowers and autumn plants. Autumn kale and cabbages are my favorites when combined with colorful seasonal mums and annuals. Flanking the front door or stairs leading to the front porch with classic urns filled with beautiful autumn plants is always a good idea.

In addition to mums and autumn kale, purple fountain grass is a wonderful choice for containers either as a filler or a single specimen plant.


Celebrate fall by redoing pots using perennials and shrubs as the backbone, dolled-up with seasonal annuals. Come the snowy or rainy season, when the seasonal color is done but containers still look great, you’ll be glad you chose plants for structure and foliage rather than just bling.

There’s nothing better than a little front porch sitting for a little positive reflection during the crisp, cool fall mornings or relaxing in the late evenings Add a plaid throw or a festive fall throw pillow to an old rocking chair for extra autumn style.

I typically use traditonal fall colors on my front porch, and cooler fall colors on my back porch and patio and garden. To see tons of ideas for fall porch decor, check out my post above. You will find links to 20 other fabulous fall porches at the end of my post.

When your porch is decorated for fall with beautiful fall gifts from nature and cozy creature comforts and a few personalized items, it can almost be like having your own little escape room to relax and unwind. If you don’t have a covered porch check local awning companies for affordable options for covering a porch or deck.

The front lawn leading to the porch is also a great place to showcase seasonal fall displays. Of course you will want to make sure your lawn is still looking great for fall.  No matter how much time you spend on your fall porch decor, if your grass is brown and dying it will certainly take away from the curb appeal! If you need help with lawn care and repair, consider contacting professional lawn care services. *Remember if you are going to be working outdoors in the yard and landscape to use tick repellent and bug spray at all times! You can also treat your lawn to remove pests in order to reduce the risk of contracting Lyme disease.
