Fall Home Tour: Front Porch

Friday, October 5, 2018


When I first laid eyes on our front porch when we looked at this house online I had visions of how I would decorate it for fall. I had always dreamed of having a porch like this to decorate! I am so excited to be sharing a tour of this year's fall porch with y'all!

To be fully honest, sometimes I feel silly decorating the outside of my house since we aren't the ones who see it most of the time but there is something to be said for great curb appeal. I know I appreciate seeing the hard work other's put into their outdoor decor so hopefully I've made at least one person smile with this fall porch 😊

It has taken me a couple of years to accumulate all of these items and I'm hoping that by the time I retire this fall porch is a fall wonderland but it's about the journey right? So my fall porch is a reflection of me today. Of a DIY'er on a budget! I hope you will find some inspiration to add one of all of these ideas! Small porch, no porch, front door, side door, house, apartment... these ideas fit everyone!


Let's start with the focal point- the front door. I like to keep this the center of attention because that is what it is!


This berry wreath and welcome sign frame the door nicely.


I like to build layers. I started with the buffalo check rug (bonus: this can transition to winter too), then I added the doormat and I kept building around it


 And how about this adorable doormat I DIY'ed! You can find the full tutorial for that here.


I think it's just the cutest touch!


Here is a tip I have for anyone else out there who is budget conscious. Faux, faux, faux! I am alll about faux pumpkins. Nowadays, you can find faux pumpkins that look so realistic! I've been collecting various faux pumpkins and gourds each year for my outdoor display and while real pumpkins aren't necessarily outrageously priced it's just one cost I can cut! (Except for the annual pumpkins that we carve- that's a different story!).



Another unexpected detail I have loved seeing in fall decor lately is using rain boots as planters.


There are actually functional rain boots that I've had for a few years from Target. I do actually use them in the winter but love to use them as decor for the other seasons! (I have a pair in peach too!)


Let's focus on the other side of the porch!


Fall is all about cozy and I love the touch of comfort a simple blanket draped on the chair adds. I wouldn't necessarily use a fancy throw outside but I picked this one up at Ikea a few years back and it's not necessarily the softest blanket so I feel it's perfect for outside! You could also use a large blanket scarf if you have one!


I love to use pieces in unexpected ways like this glass terrarium I used to hold some small pumpkins!


So there you have it! My fall porch tour! I hope you enjoyed this tour and found some inspiration! Be sure to check out all of the other bloggers participating in this tour! You will not be disappointed!
