I’m thrilled to share our 2023 fall front porch ideas with you so that you can achieve a beautiful and sophisticated fall front porch at your home.
Let’s dive into how I achieved this gorgeous 2023 fall front porch at my home. Typically, I wait until later in the fall to decorate my front porch, as I prefer using real pumpkins and live plant material.
It adds a natural and beautiful quality to the entrance of our home. Luckily, our local garden center, Good Earth, had a fantastic selection of pumpkins, mums, fall grasses, and kale.
The first step was choosing the perfect pumpkins. Cinderella-style pumpkins are some of my favorites due to their muted colors, such as sage green, white, and soft oranges.
I recommend going to the garden center early for the best selection. I selected pumpkins that complemented each other in color and size to ensure balance on both sides of the staircase.
I ended up with 22 pumpkins of various sizes and colors. Some were placed traditionally, while others were propped up, stacked, or tucked in, creating a visually appealing composition. This adds a natural and elegant touch to the display.
I utilized some summer plants for fall plants like asparagus fern and Chaste trees since it’s still warm in the South. Additionally, I incorporated purple fountain grass for a pop of color and texture.
When choosing mums, I opted for burgundy and copper varieties. Selecting non-blooming mums in early September is essential, ensuring they bloom during the desired fall period.
To enhance the composition, I intertwined the draping tendrils of the plants with the pumpkins, creating a cohesive and sophisticated look. This integration makes the display appear seamless and elegant.
The finishing touch for our 2023 fall front porch was the addition of beautiful grapevine wreaths. In a previous tutorial, I demonstrated how to create these dried natural wreaths, providing a warm and welcoming touch to the front doors.
The wreaths feature colors that tie into the mum blooms, creating a harmonious transition. I also added velvet eyelash fringe ribbon for a pop of color and charm, completing the wreath’s look.
