Cozy Fall Front Porch
While our current super small front porch isn’t necessarily fitting of that wrap-around-front porch description that comes with a farmhouse, I still love it anyways. I’ve been determined to make it a cozy spot that makes our entire home look warm and inviting from the outside. With your front porch being the first thing someone sees when they approach your home, it’s also their first impression. I’m a firm believer that it’s definitely a spot that shouldn’t be overlooked when decorating – no matter how small it is!

I started decorating for fall slowly in our home a while ago, but I showed some real restraint for decorating our front porch. Georgia had one heck of a second summer these past two months, and it didn’t feel right to bring out the pumpkins to melt on the front porch. The weather finally cooled off this past weekend, so I grabbed a pumpkin drink at Starbucks after the gym and went on a pumpkin-hunting adventure. If you heard about a crazy lady digging to the bottom of the pumpkin bin at my local Publix, it was me.
Fall Front Porch Inspiration
Today on the blog, I can’t wait to share with y’all our front porch I styled for the fall season! Last year when I decorated our front porch, I decorated our bench in the little nook around the corner from our front door. This year I decided to focus on the front door in order to make a warm and cozy first impression when our guests walk up to our home. I’m already taking bets on how long the mums with survive this year. I’m saying a prayer that it’s at least past Halloween!
I’m an heirloom pumpkin girl. I love all of the ugly pumpkins and gourds when it comes to decorating for fall. Maybe it’s the fact that as a Texas A&M grad it’s ingrained in me to hate the color bright orange. But I mean, how could you not love that fall pastel color palette? I found these heirloom pumpkins at my local Publix for only $5.99 each! I love getting my pumpkins from Publix. They are always the most reasonably priced for good quality pumpkins (that tend to last all season!) Meanwhile, they are really good sized pumpkins for the price too. My local Home Depot had heirloom pumpkins that were tiny and twice as much. (I love Home Depot, but I don’t love paying more!)

Meanwhile, now not only is it pumpkin season, but it is also how-long-can-I-keep-my-dogs-from-eating-them season. You’ll have to ask me how they’re doing at the end of the season. Beaux and Willie can’t even walk out the front door without thinking they’re giant tennis balls. We already have some teeth marks, big and small. However, we have no major tragedies yet.
I loved changing it up this year and creating a warm and inviting first impression for our guests for fall. What do you think of our fall front porch this year? I hope it leaves you inspired to jump in the car, grab that PSL, and start rolling out the pumpkins on your own front porch this season. Have you decorated your front porch for fall? Are you also an heirloom pumpkin kind of girl? Tell me about what is inspiring you this season. Leave us a comment below!
