Since you are decorating outside you can start your fall front porch decor with things from nature.

I’m loving the look of heirloom pumpkins in the past couple of years.

I mean don’t get me wrong there’s nothing better than the look of traditional orange pumpkins.

Especially for carving!

But those can wait until just before Halloween!

For now…

heirloom pumpkins have my heart…

so many colors…


and sizes!

And so much fun to stack!!!

Colorful mums are my favorite flower for my fall front porch decor.

Last year I went with white and purple mums on the porch.

But this year I chose white, yellow and orange mums.

I can’t wait until they finally open up because I just know they will look so pretty with the rest of the farmhouse vibe on my porch.

What’s your favorite color mum?

Adding cornstalks to either side of my front door adds amazing texture!

I haven’t decorated my fall porch with cornstalks in several years because the last time I did every night when I went to let the dogs out there were cobwebs front one side to the other across the front door.

And then one night…

HUGE creepy spider! Eeeek!!!

After that I didn’t buy any more corn stalks.

But I decided it was time to try again…wish me luck and…

Let’s hope the spiders don’t make their home in these cornstalks this year!!

What Fall Front Porch Decor Gives Me A Farmhouse Feel?

Some of the same things you would use inside your home can be used outside to give you that farmhouse feel.

Throws Pillows & Blankets

I’m not sure what says farmhouse more than a few throw pillows and a cozy blanket on a bench to create a comfy spot to relax on the front porch.

The soft textured burnt orange throw blanket is the perfect fall color and just pops against the black bench.

And those tassels! Ahhh!

Now let’s talk about those throw pillows!

Seriously the trio of pillows in plaid flannel, knit cream sweater, and “gather” pillows are great farmhouse style choices.

Don’t you agree?

Hanging Door Basket

The hanging door basket filled will faux fall floral stems is a pretty alternative to a traditional wreath.

I think the wicker style basket also adds to the farmhouse look of my fall front porch decor.

Get all the details of how I created this pretty hanging door basket here.

Decorative Planters

Putting your mums in decorative planters can dress up the simple plastic containers they come in.

And galvanized planters are a staple in farmhouse style decorating.

This galvanized olive bucket used as a planter for the large mum is grouped with other natural elements that give me the farmhouse feel.

And here this galvanized wire planter originally had a white metal liner that looked a bit too modern.

But wrapping it in burlap gives it more of a farmhouse vibe now!

This cute little natural market basket filled with mums brings some additional texture to my fall front porch.

Wood Stools & Crates

Wood is an organic material that is always found in farmhouse decorating.

The planter on the top step is wood and just look at that cute little wood stool on the next step down.

Isn’t the mini wood stool a great spot for this perfectly round white pumpkin I found at Walmart?

The antique white wood stool tucked behind a stack of heirloom pumpkins adds visual height and interest to the fall front porch.

A wood crate used as a riser is a simple way to add a farmhouse feel to your porch.

The neutral colors of the pumpkins with the wood crate gives the beautiful “woods & whites” look!

Lanterns & Doormats

Did you spot all the black farmhouse lanterns throughout my fall front porch decor?

Whether filled with mini white pumpkins like this one or pillar candles, lanterns are a must on a farmhouse style porch.

And how about the texture in this doormat?

So fun right!?
