Fall Front Porch Decor

Growing up, my mom had at least two giant plastic totes of decorations for each holiday and season. From Fourth of July to fall to the month of January, there was a decoration for everything. And it wasn’t subtle decorations. No. This was all-out, looks like you walked into said holiday or season’s Mecca.


When I started college, us roommates would do a slightly half-assed version of Christmas decorations, but nothing really stuck.

Last year, in the townhouse with Brett, I threw out two stockings for Christmas, but kind of left it at that.


I assumed my attitude towards seasonal and holiday themed décor would be about the same – ‘meh.’


Little did I know, there is this switch that goes off in your brain when you move into your own house.

It’s like all the pent up décor opportunities explode from you and you have this incessant need to decorate with the season and holidays.


Pre-house, a bale of hay was something that I would see while driving past a farm. Now, I use it as a pumpkin holder.


Speaking of pumpkins, they used to be things to carve funny faces on. Fast forward to now and they come in every shape and size and color and I feel like I need to have them all. I don’t know where this is coming from, but I have fallen in love with seasonal and holiday decorating.


I think there is a part of me that feels like I am doing a disservice to the house if it’s not festive.


Which brings me to my attitude as of today: if it doesn’t look like the seasonal or holiday décor actually exploded in your house, you’re not doing it right.

  1. Love your decor and your “new” attitude! Your porch looks beautiful and festive. we love that galvanized bucket with the mums…vintage perfection. Happy Fall!

  2. Your fall front porch looks great Kelly! Looks so cozy and welcoming!!! It’s true when I moved into my first place I started to go bananas when it came to decorating for each holiday too :). Thanks so much for sharing your fall front porch!!!

  3. I love your porch all festive for fall! It looks so beautiful! I know what you mean, I never really decorated much until I moved into our house! It’s that switch! I am telling you I already have two bins for Christmas and one for each of the other seasons. You’ll get there faster than you think!!

  4. Hi Kelly, your front porch is so inviting and cozy! I love all the color and the fall decor you’ve incorporated into this space. I wish I had a covered porch so that I can have rockers out front too! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, Kelly! I just want to snuggle right up. And I COMPLETELY agree–if it doesn’t look like the holiday decor exploded, you’re not doing it right. LOL! Great job 🙂

  6. I love your porch decor! Everything looks so colorful & festive. I know exactly what you mean about that switch flipping; as soon as we moved into our current home, our “forever home”, I started getting the itch to decorate for all the seasons!

  7. I jut love the mums in the galvanized buckets – actually, I love most anything in galvanized buckets, but I think they look awesome on your front porch! Have fun decorating for Christmas in your new home, too!!

  8. Seriously, what a fun front porch design! I loved it when I saw your wheelbarrow, but I love it even more now, probably because Halloween will be there before we know it. The concrete paint on your porch floor looks awesome!

  9. Your porch is lovely and love all the fall touches! The rockers are perfect! So fun to do this tour with you!

    1. Thank you, Kendra! The rockers are great for sitting outside and enjoying the view 🙂 I agree, it was so fun to do the tour with you! Next up, Christmas 😉
