Fall Porch Decorating Ideas

With fall fast approaching, it’s obvious from all the blog posts and pinterest pins out there right now, that everyone has fall decorating on the brain!
Including me!
I’ve been getting some ideas together for this season, and came across these photos of my porch from a couple of years ago.  I used these same pots in my fall porch last year, and I’m debating on whether I will be using them again this year.  
But I’m leaning towards a different theme all together…we’ll see how it goes.
In the mean time, here are some photos for a little more fall inspiration!

Happy fall decorating!


  1. The mix of squash and pumpkin is gorgeous- lots of colour and lots of size range. The twigs and pussy willows add another dimension. I like it. Change your theme if you must – I am sure I’ll like that too! :)

  2. Nice as always, Jo-Anna. I do LOVE Fall, could we keep it Year round?

  22. I like simple – very much! Just today, I noticed a wonderful variety of gourds and different pumpkins at the grocery store. Oh, I wish I’d had the time to dig through them and pick up a few for the porch, but I was on an “in and out” mission. Soon, though, very soon. The height and texture of the branches are the perfect finishing touch on your potted pumpkins!

  23. Hi Jo-Anna, Just wanted to let you know that I loved your Fall porch so much that I’ve featured it in my post.
