Let the natural elements of a fall harvest inspire your front entry decorations for the season.
Stuff the bottoms of vintage harvest baskets with newspaper and fill them with fresh apples. Attach dried cornstalks to porch posts with a wire hidden under burlap, then use Indian corn, gourds, vintage rakes, and pitchforks to add to the harvest theme. Pots of red mums and red fall leaves add vibrant color, straw bales add layered height, and the front door wreath — a head of kale surrounded by faux apples, seedpods, and leaves secured with florist’s wire to a foam base — brings the natural look together.
Your front door becomes its own decoration when you hang a fall-dried wreath.
Your summer urn does double duty in this quick and easy fall decor idea. Just fill the urn with gourds, squash, and small pumpkins for a pretty front porch accent.
Scatter and stack roly-poly gourds around your front entry for a pretty autumn accent in soft, creamy colors. Try placing them in country-style baskets, antique-inspired metal carts, or classic industrial bins for a fun, rustic touch. Pots of ornamental kale and fall flowers complete the look.
Using a wire-tiered plant stand or rustic bench on your porch for display space. Add a variety of fall decorations, such as pumpkins, gourds, foliage, and fruit, using reclaimed metal roosters and vintage bird cages to add interest.
Mums in Containers
Garden mums also make great container plants. They’re just right for popping into a clay pot, lining up in a row in a window box, or placing in the center of a mixed container with trailing foliage plants all around. Many landscape plants can provide a backdrop for groupings of mums. For texture, choose ornamental grasses or the neon purple berries of the beautyberry shrub (Callicarpa). You also can pair mums with a smoke tree (Cotinus), variegated sedum, the deciduous dwarf Fothergilla gardenii, or almost any conifer.
To get the most from your mums, choose cultivars according to their bloom times. It also helps to coordinate bloom time with the length of fall in your location. Most garden mums will withstand a light fall frost, but finding the right cultivars will provide the longest possible amount of pleasure
Think outside the box when it comes to floral displays for your front porch. Kale isn’t just for eating. The flowering varieties, available at the farmer’s market or flower shops, make beautiful additions to flower arrangements. Group purple kale with purple mini calla lilies and globe-shaped yellow billy balls. White kale makes a statement against orange ranunculus and pincushion flowers.
Seasonal freshness comes courtesy of live hydrangea and hypericum in a vintage galvanized watering can. Simply attach a decorative hook to your door and hang an antique watering can fill with water and the fall blooms. The seasonal display stays fresh for a few days — enough time for your big fall gathering or for greeting unexpected fall guests. If you don’t have a watering can try a vintage hanging basket.
A topiary of pumpkins adds a touch of drama to your front entrance. Look for pumpkins in different sizes and colors, then rest the largest pumpkin on a planter. Use wooden skewers to secure each smaller pumpkin to the next, and place it in a vintage large urn near your front door.
This year, carve personalized pumpkins to welcome your friends and family to your home. Buy a small, medium, and large pumpkin, then etch your monogram into each one. Try using different fonts and styles for a fun fall touch. Rest your masterpieces on an old chair or hooked fall stool to show off your work.
Place a vintage milkman basket or old market basket near your door and fill it with a cheery mix of fall gourds, berry vines, and pumpkins. Then, use paint, permanent marker, or sticker letters to decorate the pumpkins with a friendly fall welcome.
