Fall front porch decor

I love the way our house looks in the fall. I personally don’t think you can ever have too many pumpkins or mums. Below I’m sharing some photos of our fall front porch and giving you some tips on how to make your pumpkins last longer.

As always, click the thumbnail photos or links at the bottom of the post to shop.

This year I chose to add lots of heirloom pumpkins in muted tones along the stairs. If you are local, Kleinke Farm in Delmar is a great small family owned farm and spot to snag some of these beauties. (Be sure to watch my video below showing you how to make these gems last longer!).

I also got traditional cornstalks and placed them in some black urns. (Tip – put some rocks in the bottom of the urn to add weight so they don’t tip over).

Instead of doing a traditional fall wreath, I opted for this door basket from Lauren McBride’s QVC line. I added in some faux flowers and some of my own dried hydrangeas. I love that you can keep this up year ’round and just switch out the flowers with the change of the seasons. This basket is currently unavailable (I’m hoping it comes back soon!!!), but I’ve linked a similar one on Amazon at the end of the post.

Every year I get mums for our front porch and every year they’re dead in two weeks time. This year I switched up my game and got these faux mums from QVC. They are a little more on the expensive side but I look at them as an investment you can use year after year. They come in a variety of colors and are super easy to put together.

I had found these solar powered lanterns at Aldi in the beginning of summer. We had them on our back deck but I brought them out front to add a soft glow to our steps. I’m linking a smiliar set below.

Spring Porch Refresh

Spring is here and I have been itching to start decorating! To me, I love a well decorated front porch, it gives such a great first impression. This time of year, I feel like the exterior of my home always needs a little pick me up after the cold winter. So I decided to do a little Spring Porch Refresh, adding some fresh greens and pops of color.  I’m sharing the details of my spring porch decor below plus, I’ve teamed up with some other bloggers to give you some extra inspiration!

And as always, I’ve linked most of the products so that you can shop them too, because sharing is caring.

Here is my Spring Porch Refresh

I started with my welcome mat. I layered it with this blue striped mat to give it another element of color and make it pop against the blue.

I love this magnolia wreath for the spring and summer months.

I had been looking for a way to add some different dimensions and wanted a vertical sign for the porch. A local shop in my hometown called The Familiar Farmhouse made this welcome sign for me. I gave it a coat of poly so that it could stay outside and sustain the weather.

I am all about faux flowers for outside. I used to get fresh potted plants every year but let’s be honest – I’m good at keeping my kids and my patients alive. Flowers and plants on the other hand, not so much. I got these pots and faux greenery/fleurs from Afloral and honestly you could never tell the difference. I painted the pots this blue color, it’s called Crashing Waves by Behr.
