How to Create the Perfect Fall Porch

Set the perfect fall scene on your front porch with these simple, yet beautiful ideas!

Layered Doormats

Freshening up your porch decor by layering this black and white plaid outdoor rug with a “home sweet home” doormat will make your porch Instagram ready. A black and white buffalo checkered rug offers casual elegance in the form of a classic plaid pattern. If plaid isn’t your style, opt for a different design with a relatively simple doormat.

Fall Throw Pillows

Create a seasonal design by adding fall-themed accent pillows on your porch furniture. Fall throw pillows will refresh your porch and are easy to mix and match with other seasonal decorations for a complete look. You can choose solid colors such as red or orange. Graphic pillows that say any number of fall-inspired sayings such as “thankful,” “hello, fall,” “gather,” or “happy harvest,” are a great way to send a friendly message.

Seasonal Flowers

To add color and warmth, incorporate fresh, seasonal flowers such as mums, and lots of little gourds, to welcome guests to your porch. Large potted plants on each side of the door or steps create great symmetry.

Sets of Three

When items are grouped together in a set of three, it is more aesthetically appealing to the eye. Try to play with varying heights and sizes as well. For fall, consider grouping a large pumpkin with two smaller pumpkins.

Welcome Porch Sign

Add a festive Fall welcome sign to welcome your family, friends and neighbors to your beautiful home. Reclaimed wood or shipping pallets are the perfect base for a welcome sign to adorn your porch.


Wreaths come in a myriad of sizes. Choose a large one to hang on your front door to create a bold, statement piece, or choose a smaller one for a subtler look. A fall wreath with autumn foliage and fruit wealth is the perfect way to tie in all the other décor elements and create a finished and complete look.
