Fall Decorating Ideas: A Quick Front Porch Makeover

With the first of the fall holidays upon us (Happy Halloween!), you’re right on time for a little last minute addition to your front stoop that will look great for Halloween and into Thanksgiving! Anything in the form of pumpkins, hay bales, mums and pansies will give you that festive feel! This in-town Atlanta front porch has a great symmetrical structure but it was looking a little sad and lonely, so we decided to give it a good aesthetic overhaul!

Here’s what we did for this quick fall front porch makeover, and the thinking behind our fall decorating ideas.

We planted these classic fall flowers that we found at the local Home Depot: mums in orange and burgundy, Cool Wave Pansies in purple and white, Sedum “Autumn Joy”, and one evergreen for height and interest.
