Each year, I love experimenting with different color combinations of mums and pumpkins on my fall porch.  With all that color, I usually keep the basics neutral so I can use them over again…

Decorating Your Porch for Fall – with Doormats:

This fall, layer your doormats or just use one…

As you can see, when I decorated my porch for fall last year, I used neutral doormats.  Since I like to stretch my items from season to season, I didn’t buy a “fall specific” door mat.  You can still find mine in some Target stores and it sells out a lot online.  Maybe they’re phasing it out…who knows?…

Although, I think this adorable door mat is an even cuter version of the older one I have on my front porch!…

But if you love season specific door mats, this is a pretty one for fall.  Plus, it’s neutral enough so it would work with all colors.

Decorating Your Porch for Fall – with Pumpkins:

What’s a fall porch without pumpkins?…

Since we all love pumpkins in the fall, I included some of my favorite faux pumpkins!  If you’re like me, you mix real pumpkins with artificial pumpkins when you decorate.

Some Essentials for Decorating Your Porch for Fall:

Instead of focusing on one season, use items that work all year!…

Basically, I couldn’t decorate my porch for fall…or any season for that matter without these exact black urns.  Even though they look like stone, they’re actually fiberglass.  Mine are 21 inches high but this urn also comes in a 29 inch version.

If you’re like me, you love the look of lanterns on a fall porch and these lanterns are just perfect for fall!…

Several times in the past, I’ve decorated my porch with lanterns and battery operated candles.   I’ve also seen people fill them with mini pumpkins for fall.  Such a cute idea!


If you want a more rustic, European look, these indoor outdoor lanterns are gorgous!

Decorating Your Porch for Fall – with Wreaths:

When decorating your porch, don’t forget the door!…

In recent years, I’ve decorated my porch with a wreath similar to this one.

Now, if I decide to go with more red on my porch this year, this red apple wreath would be stunning…

If you like a more neutral wreath, this dried wheat wreath is very pretty and would look great against a black door…

  1. Growing up in MN I love this fall inspiration. Now living in Tx for many years I probably won’t decorate until October 1– especially since our front porch faces west 🤯! The best news from my dr today is that I am cleared to go IN (instead of float on) the pool💦. Hugs from Waco 💚💛🐻!

    1. Thanks Diane – normally I wait a little longer to decorate…maybe I’ve been home too much! Congrats on the good health news – now get in that pool! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. I love the mums and the pumpkins! The way you staggered the heights gave it a nice flow. My porch feels so boring to me right now and I want to try some of these tips!

    1. Thanks – this was last year’s porch but this year’s will probably be similar. I’m glad I gave you some ideas – thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great inspiration, Shelley! I love the black and white checked rug. Have to see if that can work for me. I do have a big lantern on my porch, and love it. I’m holding off to end of Sept to buy mums, and decorate the porch for fall. My summer flowers are still going gangbusters!

    1. Thanks Amy! Gotta love black and white checks! Yeah, I think all the summer flowers are getting a second life with all this rain! Enjoy your day!
