Every year Erin from White Fig Designs helps us creates a beautiful fall porch. This year we incorporated copper and colorful plants. It has a more rustic, moody vibe to it that we love and will transition beautifully into Halloween.
Ideas for How to Style a Fall Front Porch
It goes without saying that pumpkins are a must for a fall porch. Incorporate different varieties of pumpkins. Pumpkins come in so many textures, colors and styles and they’re all beautiful. We love really bumpy green ones and the giant fairytale pumpkins. The more unique the better!
Use hay bales to add height to the porch. They can also be used to fill in holes and as a filler around plants.
Flowers are the easiest way to add more color and create a beautiful porch. Mums are traditionally used and they come in different colors like yellow, orange, white and purple. However, there are many other plants and flowers you can use too:
Pampas Grass – Use this to create height on the porch.
Fresh flowers in a copper vase are perfect for fall too. To keep them fresh, water them every other day and trim the bottoms each week.
Dried flowers work really well too. Create a beautiful dried, fall flower arrangement to keep on the porch.
Dried garland is great to drape over doors and hay bales. They add texture and coloring to the fall porch.
To create height, use clear fishing wire to attach pompous grass and taller plants to the house. Also, large buckets filled with water can hold taller plants too.
Wreaths add more texture and work great for fall decor. Traditionally wreaths are hung on doors, however they look beautiful resting against a chair or a large pumpkin.

Use large copper or galvanized pots to hold flowers and pumpkins. If the pots are really large, add hay to the bottom to boost the plants up. We also like to add hay around the top to fill in any holes.
Lanterns are beautiful and can be used for lighting and decor. One way to decorate them is to fill them with pumpkins and hay or twinkle lights. We also love the flameless candles that turn on with a timer. They look so real!
Tips for Styling a Fall Porch
Make sure to water the plants and flowers every other day.
Keep the area clean by sweeping and removing rotten or eaten pumpkins.
As the season goes on the porch will start to dwindle, however with proper care, you should be able to keep it somewhat festive until Thanksgiving.
Use dried flowers if you’re unable to water fresh flowers.
