Simple Fall Porch Decor + Fall Guidebook!

It’s happening you guys! I’m slowly but surely getting my fall decor out. This weekend I spent some time going through all of my fall stash and it definitely got me excited to start busting out those cute pumpkins. This year I want to be really intentional with my seasonal decor and I’m planning to keep things pretty simple. I’m going to focus on just a few key areas of our home and first up is a simple fall front porch!! I don’t know why, but I LOVE the idea of decorating the porch first for fall. It kind of sets the mood for the inside of the home, right? I don’t know if that makes any sense, but I think it’s a great place to start, especially if you’re not fully ready for fall decor inside. I’m also excited to be sharing my free Fall Guidebook today too! I’ll chat more about that at the end of this post.

My goal with this little spot was to focus on simplicity. Since we’re only into early September, I didn’t want to load it up with pumpkins just yet. So I went for several colorful mums, a cute pumpkin pillow, and one faux pumpkin. Easy peasy and super simple!

This black metal bench is actually from Target and I snagged it a few months ago. Unfortunately it looks like Target no longer carry this exact one, but I did find a very similar option here. I love this bench on our front porch–it’s the perfect size!

    What a great porch! It is the perfect transition for this time of year. I really like the container that you have holding the yellow mums. Is it wood? Did you paint it? Would love to hear all about it…
    Thanks.
    Great Job!!

    Cute porch!! I too started decorating last weekend in the hopes it would encourage cooler weather! Fall is my favorite 🏈🍁 🎃 season. Are your mums real? Are they hard to keep alive? Any tips on real vs live plants, for those who don’t have a green thumb? 🌿🍂🥀
    Have a wonderful day!

    Where did you get the wreath? I love the subdued colors. Most of the leaf garland/wreaths are pretty garish–too orange.

      That is actually from Michael’s. It’s garland that I turned into a wreath!
