Decorating a Front Porch for Fall

Fall is upon us, and even though the weather where I am is unseasonably warm, I still got in the mood to decorate for Fall.  I will probably be adding some Halloween decor soon, but this is how my front porch looks for now.

I picked up this magnetic chalk board from MD Hobby & Craft at the Haven Conference, and am just now putting it to use.  I used chalk pens to write a welcome message for my guests.  I can't wait to change it up for the different seasons.  I stuck a couple of command hooks on the back of it to hold the glittery orange ribbon.

I brought out one of my cozy, plaid blankets and leaf pattern pillow (made by my Mother-in_law) to add to the bistro set.  Speaking of this set, it desperately needs to be repainted next spring.  Do you think I should keep it green, or go with my favorite turquoise?  Comment below then check back in a few months to see if I picked your idea!

I usually get several colors of mums, but this year I decided to go with yellow to match the door and keep the color scheme simple.  I picked up some assorted colors and sizes of pumpkins and gourds to accent the pots of mums.

I moved my metal lanterns from the back deck to use with these orange flameless candles that I picked up on our last trip to Home Depot.  I made the letters on my pumpkin out of vinyl, using my Cricut machine.


Here is another shot of my mums and pumpkins.

  2. LOVE your yellow door! Such a pretty front porch. I have my mums potted, but I need to add a little bit of my fall decor to it. I like the idea of using a plaid scarf! And, my neighbor uses a chalkboard that she has hung up on her porch and I LOVE it. I sort of want to copy of her... lol!

    1. Thank you! Painting the door yellow has been one of the best decisions I ever made! I love chalkboard decor too! I wish I had better lettering skills.

  3. I just love the color of your door, and the mums look fabulous with it! I think the table would look great in cobalt blue next to your door. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  4. We don't do this in the UK. I might shock my neighbours and have a go though. It would be a talking point.
