Decorating a fall front porch: Day 10 of 10 days of fall vibes

October 10, 2023

THE BEST FOR LAST

The best compliment anyone could EVER give me is for them to say they feel AT HOME in my home.
I want people to feel like they can come, be encouraged, receive nourishment in body & soul and relax in our space.
Since the front door is the first place people encounter, I want our front porch to say “Come inside – we’ve been waiting for you.”


While this doesn’t require elaborate decorations to create this, I simply think decorating our front porch for the holidays is SUPER FUN. So for me, it’s part of it.

SOME OF MY FRONT PORCH DECORATING TIPS

THINK IN ODDS

Think in odds (threes, fives or ones) – you’ll notice I have 3 mums, 3 lanterns in a cluster, three pumpkins….. or I have one standing lamp stand, one large orange pumpkin, etc.

VARY HEIGHTS


Vary heights – Here I’m using an old bench, a hay bale, the stairs and the standing lantern to create different platforms that are interesting to the eye.

ADD TEXTURES


Add textures – On the bench I have a fall blanket, the mums are in rattan baskets, the entry rug and the leaves add that layering affect and the hay bale also brings in an earthy element.

HAVE FUN!


Most of all – HAVE FUN with your front porch. Why do we take things so seriously? Play with it and make it fun to YOU and your people.
