The season of pumpkins and mums is here! That means it’s time to style your front porch for the fall. The typical fall porch decor combines beautiful pumpkins and gourds with mums and other fall pieces. You could change things up with creative pots and vases, or even candle holders and lights. We highly recommend getting one of these adorable doormats and layering it with a fabric runner underneath. The combinations are endless so we’re sharing some of our favorite fall front porch styling tips below. Definitely use these gorgeous porches as design inspiration during your festive fall styling process!
Fall Front Porch Styling Tips
Head over to your local farmers market to find interesting pumpkins in different shapes and sizes. We’ve learned that imperfect pumpkins actually tend to look better here, and there’s no need to carve them! You could either find reuable plastic options or fresh ones, but mixing and matching is the way to go.
Mums are everywhere this season and the best part is, they come in every color imaginable. Combine different shades for a colorful entryway. When you’re looking for mums, try to find a plant with the most buds, even if they haven’t all bloomed. The more buds, the fuller the plant will look eventually.
