Nothing says “cozy” in autumn quite a like a beautifully decorated front porch or entryway. Decorating your front door for autumn will help you get into the spirit of the season every time you come home. With these seasonal refresh pointers from our design experts at Al’s Florist & Gifts in Hollywood, you’ll add instant curb appeal that is sure to impress your friends, family, and neighbors all season long.
1. Flowers in Autumn Hues
Mums and Pumpkins
Deck out your front porch with loads of potted s in popular autumn colors. Potted chrysanthemums are a must-have for fall. They’re available in an almost infinite amount of varieties and colors, and they’ll continue to bloom throughout the season. Other autumn favorites include lantana, goldenrod, and potted kale in deep green and purple hues that’ll perfectly contrast sunny marigolds and cheerful, golden suns.
2. Front Door Decor
Nothing looks more cheerful and welcoming than an inviting entrance created with a beautiful autumn wreath. Go for one featuring autumn leaves, s, miniature pumpkins, or fall-theme bows. Whatever your front door wreath features, we recommend selecting colors to match your other fall decorations or that will delightfully stand out against the color of your front door.
3. Go for the Garland
This front porch has almost everything for a complete autumn look: a variety of pumpkins and gourds and an arrangement of lovely s in a beautiful rainbow of colors. Everything decorative autumn, however, is placed on the ground. An autumn garland draped around the doorway, would create a more welcoming facade and dynamic display, as it would better draw the eye upward, toward the entrance.
4. Gourd-a Have Pumpkins
Fall wouldn’t be fall without pumpkins, and there’s no better way to add a pop or several pops of color to your front porch, steps, or doorway. We recommend gathering up a variety of shapes, sizes, textures, and colors of pumpkins, gourds, and other squashes. The more, the better!
If you love baking pumpkin pie, then carve up a few to use as floral containers or jack-o-lanterns for Halloween. Your display, however, will last much longer, if you leave your pumpkins intact. To add more drama, try painting them with autumn designs or in glittery, metallic hues. Tie their stems with plaid ribbons or top them with other fall embellishments.
5. Autumn Accoutrements
When it comes to adding autumn embellishments to your front porch, the cornfield’s the limit! Look for beautiful stalks of corn in a variety of jeweled colors. Add cattails and hay bales. Then, prop up a few friendly scarecrows to welcome all your guests with a straw smile. With the addition of a few spooky elements for October, a display like this will last you from Halloween through your Thanksgiving Day feast.
6. Touchable Textiles
The final step to creating a cozy front porch for fall is switching out your outdoor textiles. Put the flamingo and pineapple pillows into storage and bring out the flannel and plaid printed blankets and pillows. With these, all you’ll want to do this autumn is sit outside, snuggled up with a cup of hot apple cider.
