There are so many things that I love about fall decor and the fall season, and every year I get the chance to discover my favorites all over again. I love the apple cider and pumpkin spice everything. I love beautiful fall mums. I love the simplicity that decorative pumpkins and fall decor bring to a front porch. I love that I can put on my thickest sweater and a pair of cozy boots and cuddle up with my kids next to a bonfire.
We have two doors in our house, which sits horizontal to the road, so people can see both our front and back door as they drive through our neighborhood. This weekend I wanted to spruce up my back porch and share with you my fun finds for a porch adorned with fall decor.
About a month ago, we started repainting the outside of our house. Our back porch was pea green before, and now, it’s bright gray wood with a white trim. Suffice to say that I’m in love! I just had to decorate this space to show off all the hard work we’ve done—and make the fall decor match our love for the season!
Great Ideas for Fall Decor Updates
I pulled my white wicker chair outdoors from where it was in the sunroom and laid out plaid throws and a blanket I had on hand from winter last year. I also love these metal Nihal baskets, which is what originally inspired the entire back porch design.
At the local nursery and pumpkin patch, I picked up some pretty decorative pumpkins and a small bale of straw. I put a paint can inside the Nihal baskets and then set my mums on top of them—they fit perfectly! I seriously adore the look of mums and all the gorgeous colors they come in.
I bought a fresh, handmade Magnolia Wreath and hung it on the door. I am loving the combinations of live plants for this design and really wanted to capture all the colors that nature has to offer.
Don’t you just love the antique-looking baskets? They make the perfect vessel in which to hold the decorative cabbages.
I hope you enjoyed my fall porch tour!
