Two weeks ago I shared my fall home tour and I had really wanted to include my porch in that, but I didn’t have it ready in time. Now that it’s all decked out, I wanted to share my front porch ideas for fall with you.

My favorite thing on the porch by far is the vintage milk cans, especially the rustic blue one. Both of these were gifts, from 2 different friends who clearly know me so well. What really triggered my front porch ideas for this year is the trio of beautiful pumpkins I found. The colors are so beautiful in white, soft green and a whitewashed orange color.

I found the cutest little fall doormat* from Kirkland’s this year, it really adds a nice pop of color to the porch.

The welcome sign was a DIY project. I haven’t gotten around to writing a blog post on that yet.

With my small front porch, I try not to go too crazy with the decor. I love mums, but I don’t like the brown and black pots that they come in, so I put this one in a galvanized container that I had. You can find a similar container here. They would also look amazing in one of these olive buckets.

One day last week my daughter surprised me by bringing me home several mums in pretty colors. I added them to this basket (find similar here) on my porch for a colorful display. The ombre mum is my favorite!

I had this galvanized pumpkin inside, but decided it looked better out here on the porch. This shot was taken before my daughter gifted me the mums. Don’t look too close at that cabbage plant, he’s fading fast, lol.

I hope you picked up some front porch ideas for yourself here. I’m really enjoying the simple touches I added this year. Now if only I could get the neighbors directly across the street from me to take down the life-sized creepy clown cutout in their front door I’d be good.

UPDATE! See the updates we made to this porch and more small front porch ideas for fall!

Do you have any front porch ideas for fall? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!


  1. I love your charming front porch ~ thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm! Pinned!

  2. Wow, I love your porch and EVERYTHING on it. I even love the seclusion with the lattice and ivy. And those milk cans are fantabulous! Beautiful job on the basket too. I’d hang there all day if I could.

  3. Love your porch
    Where are Your pumpkins from?

    1. Thanks, Ann. They were from Wegmans.

    2. That milk can is originally green, like the base. It just faded. I have one just like it and it is more green and less rusty. But the paint on mine has faded in places too.

  4. I love your front porch, especially the vintage milk can with the mums on top. Any ideas for finding a milk can like that? Anyway…. love the pumpkins too. Happy Fall!
