Festive and colorful fall porch decorating ideas.

Decorating my fall porch has become one of the hallmarks of the season that I really look forward to. With a few flowers, such as mums and pansies, and of course some pumpkins, you can create a beautifully decorated outdoor entry.

We had an unseasonably hot start to the fall season here in Cincinnati. The temperatures have finally cooled down a bit and put me in the mood to redecorate our front porch. In years past, I’ve kept our porch decor simple with a couple of mums and pumpkins. But last year, I got the itch to do more, and that same itch returned this year.

I repurposed a few items I’d bought and made last year to create our 2017 fall porch, and I love how it turned out. I’ll include links to my DIY projects and similar products where I can!

I made the oversized “Welcome” sign last year. It was really easy to make, and the perfect project to complete in a day or two. Click here to learn how to make a large porch sign.

If you’re a frequent reader, you know I’m no stranger to color. I apply this philosophy to my outdoor decor and gardening, too. I love having a mix of colorful flowers and plants on our porch. This year, I selected a palette of orangey-yellows, whites, and hot pinks. And of course my signature purple makes a few appearances, too.

I was really drawn to the yellowish-orange gourds this year. And there is something about the knobby, bumpy ones that draws me in! I like the added texture.

I made my own “pumpkin patch” complete with my childhood toy wheelbarrow. It’s the perfect size for a few small-to-medium pumpkins!
