As I mentioned, today I’m sharing my Autumn Porch Decor with ways to keep it simple:
Even though we’re not expecting many guests these days, it’s always fun to decorate a festive fall porch. In my opinion, there’s no need to go crazy with elaborate decorations. For my porch, I like to keep it simple with a few seasonal items.
Autumn Porch Decor with Pumpkins:
One of the easiest ways to decorate a fall porch is to add some pumpkins.
In fact, I’ve never decorated an autumn porch without pumpkins!
Since my front door is black, orange pumpkins really stand out on my porch.
This year, I threw in a few white ones too. As Halloween approaches, we’ll be carving up some of the pumpkins and turning them into Jack-O-Lanterns. That is, if the deer don’t get them first! If you want to see how I transitioned my porch decor to Halloween last year, check out – From Fall to Halloween on the Porch.
Not only do I love to decorate my porch with pumpkins, but I also love adding the mini pumpkins to the ledge above the door!
This is one of the simplest ways to give a festive fall look to my front door. Every year, my neighbors mention how much they love this look. Though, I can’t take the credit since I “borrowed” the idea from an Instagram friend.
Autumn Porch Decor – A Black Background.
If your door is black, a colorful wreath really stands out.
When choosing your porch decorating colors, it’s always helpful to consider the background.
For a cohesive look, carry the black to other areas.
As you can see, my large urns are black and so are the glass lanterns. All the black accents make the colorful pieces feel more grounded.
Add Simple Festive Touches to the Autumn Porch Decor:
This year, instead of using candles, I filled my lanterns with mini pumpkins!
In the past, I’ve seen other bloggers do this and I love the look. Plus, the mini pumpkins in the lanterns coordinate with the mini pumpkins above the door. In addition, I had some black and white gingham ribbon so I tied simple bows on each lantern.

Autumn Porch Decor Essentials – Mums!
If you want to keep your porch decor simple yet seasonal, mums are the way to go.
After all, you can find mums in practically every farm stand, home improvement store or grocery store this time of year.
Plus, mums are inexpensive, they come in a variety of colors and you can make them last through Thanksgiving if you’re lucky. Of course, I am not usually lucky. Between the deer and my black thumb, I’m thankful if my mums last through Halloween!
But each year, I try…maybe this will be my lucky year! Then again, 2020 hasn’t been lucky for anything else!

So, I’ll enjoy my autumn porch decor while it lasts. We all have to live in the moment these days, don’t we?
And when I walk down the stairs each morning, I get to see my cute little pumpkins in the transom window…a reminder to appreciate the “little” things.
Hopefully, I inspired you with my fall porch decorating ideas!
