Fall is upon us and with the season comes a myriad of new ways to decorate your home. Who doesn’t love mixing things up now and again? One of our favourite places to makeover in fall is the front porch; with good reason too! There’s so much room for creativity and originality, which makes this project so interesting (and fun). In this article we share with you the five aspects of porch decorating we just couldn’t live without!
Pumpkins, Pumpkins and More Pumpkins
Nothing quite says fall like a huge, orange pumpkin on the stoop. That being said, this fall try a new spin on the old classic. Spray paint your pumpkins gold, white or black to make them stand out or use several different sized pumpkins for a less uniform look. The possibilities are endless.

Rustic is the New Chic
The ‘rustic’ trend looks like it’s here to stay, so why not incorporate it into your porch decor this year? Adding rustic pieces can accomplish a homier, more relaxed look that will welcome just about anyone! Use natural pieces such as hay bales, dried cornstalks and pinecones or include some bigger items like distressed urns and furniture, apple baskets, or even a straw welcoming mat.

Lead the Way with Lanterns
Whether they are paper, metal or glass, lanterns always pull together a porch space beautifully. Try hanging the coloured paper lanterns in all sorts of shapes and sizes from the roof above your porch to create depth in the space and catch the eyes of your guests. Glass lanterns look wonderful with candles or sticks inside. Place these on your porch beside your pumpkins or hay bales to make the space look polished.

Wreaths are Vital
Your door is what every person sees first when looking at your porch. Make sure it's looking its best by putting a festive wreath on it! You can find wreaths made of almost everything that makes us think of fall, from leaves to pinecones, to mums. If you're craft-oriented, try making your own. Just make sure it ties into the overall theme of your porch before spending much money; things can get pricey!

Don’t Forget to Leave Some Leaves
Coloured fall leaves are arguably the first things on everyone’s mind when fall is mentioned. Bring your childhood nostalgia of jumping through piles of leaves to the forefront of your home by adding a scattering of leaves across your porch. Add them to baskets or bouquets for the perfect finishing touch to any space!
