One of my favorite things about fall is to see all of the gorgeous front porches decked out for fall. They are just so warm and welcoming. They make you want to come inside and enjoy a slice of pumpkin pie or a mug of warm apple cider. You can create that same welcome home ambience even if you don’t have a lot of money or even a front porch. You just have to work what you’ve got!
I love this porch (same porch as the first picture). It’s got it all. I love the corn husks on both sides of the entry. Bales of hay,bushel baskets, and the scarecrow (hard to make out in this photo) add to the country harvest feel. The baskets as well as the urns are filled with beautiful mums. You are just drawn up the steps to the front door by pumpkins that are graduated in size as you go up. Everything about this design pulls you in and up to the front door and the warm glowing light within.
This front porch is so balanced. Pots of mums and hurricane lamps line the steps alongside small white pumpkins. Paper lanterns and hanging baskets draw your eye up and the focus in the middle is a beautiful autumn wreath on the door.
It just can’t get any more welcoming than this! Bring out the welcome wagon or wheelbarrow or any type of cart you may have and fill it with gourds, bittersweet and paint a greeting onto a pumpkin. Or grab an old bike and adorn it with baskets of pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns.
Fall branches with beautiful golden leaves, a few pumpkins, and a whispy grapevine wreath make for a simple yet gorgeous entry.
