10 Tips for Easy Fall Front Porch Decorating


1. Choose your fall color palette
The first thing you need to succeed in your autumn decorating is a color theme. Go traditional with typical autumn colors like maple leaf reds, warm yellows, oranges or tans, or use non-traditional colors such as white and gold pumpkins. Jewel tones are also in style for 2017 fall decorating trends, such as jade, or even metallic colors such as gold and brass.


2. Rotate flowers and gourds

Get floral this fall and use flowers that bloom in season, like garden mums. Choose flowers that boast autumn hues and rotate your arrangements with classic fall gourds like pumpkins or squash. If the exterior of your home has stairs, this works especially well with alternating between flowers and gourds on each stair.


3. Tie festive bows around pumpkins

Using unexpected décor will make your home exterior pop this fall. Fill a basket with apples and hang it from your door. Use a picnic basket as décor by placing a flannel blanket inside of it and stuffing it with gourds, signs or other decorations.


5. Place cornstalks anywhere

Cornstalks are a great way to keep your home in harvest style. Lean them up against the doorway to create a harvest entryway and welcome guests in style.


6. Hang a harvest wreath

8. Place window clings in your front windows

This trick is perfect for the low maintenance decorator. Find simple and seasonal fall window clings or decals to hang in your windows for a simple touch.


9. Use objects already on your porch

Do you have rocking chairs or a front porch swing? Integrate items that stay on your porch all year into your fall theme... Place a flannel blanket over a rocking chair and set a gourd next to it. You can easily create a relaxing, and cozy space placing decorative fall pillows on your porch furniture.


10. Display your house number on pumpkins

Paint or place wooden numbers onto pumpkins and stack them up in the correct order next to your door to display your house number this fall.


So, try out these fall exterior decorating tips this season and make your house stand out. Keep your harvest décor trendy all season long by adding a few spooky decorations when Halloween comes around.
