Welcome to Happy Happy Nester if you’re new to my blog!
My porch is all decked out for you, and I hope you can stay a bit and soak in the fall vibes.
Let’s talk about decorating your porch for fall. Do you struggle with how to what to display on your patio? What color themes to use? What decor items to use?
I know exactly how you feel, and the decisions can be super overwhelming. I’ll deconstruct some fall porch ideas for you, but let’s start with the flowers first.
Fall Mum Display Ideas

What Colors to Use
Since I used orange and white pumpkins, it’s a no-brainer that I chose the same colors for my mums.
I did buy a few burgundy mums to match our front door, but the three colors were a bit much. So I scaled back on that color and mainly used the white and orange color combination.
I think that if you feel overwhelmed with your front porch decorating, keep it simple and restrict yourself to one or two colors.
How to Display Mums – Containers
Be creative when it comes to displaying mums. Hollow out a faux pumpkin and plop a vase in it. I lined my cute bushel baskets and placed one mum in each.
I also brought out my old baskets and plopped my mums in them, too, and I love how they look. Just remember to line time with some plastic, and I used a large garbage bag to line my baskets.
Fall Mum Arrangement Ideas
I love the old basket that I found at a thrift store. I placed a liner in it and then put big rocks on the bottom to lift the plants. Next, I set three mums side by side with a few mini-pumpkins in the front. I tucked some branches from my Nadina bush to add color and organic movement.
Of course, the striped ribbon is bold and crisp and is such a fun accent.
More Thoughts on Decorating a Fall Porch
Besides fall mum display ideas, I considered a few more things when decorating. Let’s take a look at some of these key elements.
I bought these white pumpkins from our local Ace Hardware. I have never seen these mini pumpkins with their cute stems, and I love the size and how perfectly round they are. I placed some on our front porch as well on my dining room tablescape.
So, if you have an Ace Hardware in your town, make sure to check out their pumpkin supplies!
I bought this black beaded garland a while back at either Target or Homegoods. I love the look, but I don’t know who else carries it. As an alternative, this pretty black maple leaf garland is stunning. The leaf garland is your standard autumn accent, and I love to combine garlands for the most significant impact.
Our local Ace Hardware carried these fun cornstalks this year. They weren’t expensive, $15 per bunch. If you buy some, make sure to place some towels or plastic down in your car. The stalks love to shed lots of their leaves and husks.
I bought this cute sign from Amazon of all places. It is my first Harvest sign for my porch, and I love it!
Door Mats and Outdoor Rugs
The grey birdhouse was originally a bright green, and I got busy and painted it with Annie Sloan’s chalk paint. I love her color graphite since it makes things so dramatic and pretty.
So, add birdhouses, wooden stools, tree stumps, and hay bales to your front porch decorations. Have fun and enjoy decorating your porch for the fall.
