Fall Front Porch Decor

Fall is my favorite season of the year. The weather, the colors of the season and the food are all things that I find comfort in. Even though things are going to sleep in the fall, I have a sense of renewal and awakening on morning with crisp air, sweater-weather afternoons and evenings that have the smell of burning wood in the air. Everything about it makes me feel more alive. 

With this fall being our first at Sugar Maple Farmhouse, I wanted to make sure the fall front porch decor around our home reflected the warmth and happiness I feel this season. And with it being my first season with a covered door and a large front porch that serves as an extra room during the warmer months, I decided to start there.

Front porch goals

I’ve always dreamed of having a front porch like the one we have now. Our old house didn’t have a porch at all, just a stoop. Kevin and I at one point discussed adding a covered porch because he knows how much I loved all the house we saw with them. Instead we moved here and all my dreamy, romantic ideas about front porches have been actualized.

Our first fall 

For this first fall season, I knew I wanted the porch to feel welcoming, cozy and full of warmth. To me that means heritage colors with rusty oranges and reds, soft woods and of course, pumpkins. I layered these up and down the staircase, around the front door and near the two porch sitting areas – the rockers and the swing.

I then layered all that warmth in with some textured greens such as cabbage and ????? To balance out some of the oranges and as a bit of farewell to the greens of summer.

And finally, because I have children, I added in a bit of whimsy with old, gas cans that have been given new life and two heritage brooms that could substitute for witches brooms. Together these things are the perfect touch of Halloween for my kids and will feel appropriate all season long.

I finished it all off by adding a blanket ladder with a picnic blanket for anyone in need of another layer while they’re drinking coffee or coco on the porch.

  13. I love your porch. We went to Walmart to get pumpkins and they were all gone. I’m shocked. Ill have to check other stores now to see if I can find some. I wanted to put them on my porch but was waiting until it cooled off. Our deck is painted dark brown and until recently temperatures were still in the upper 90s. So I didn’t want cooked pumpkins. hahhah
