I’m excited to share how we have our front porch decorated this year with you! Here’s our simple green and white front porch.
Putting together our fall porch decor is always one of my favourite traditions every year. It just always turns out to be so fun and charming no matter what I do, and it always comes together so easily. This year I knew I wanted mainly green and white pumpkins, and white mums, since I did so many traditional bright colors last year with orange pumpkins and brightly-colored mums. I love both looks, but it’s fun to mix it up. 🙂 So let me show you what I did for this year’s green and white fall front porch!
Easy-Peasy Fall Front Porch Decor
I always find that the fall front porch decor ideas that work out the best are also the easiest to pull together and usually the easiest to find. There’s no point in reinventing the wheel here. We only have a few fleeting weeks to enjoy all the good things that fall brings, so just go with the classics and enjoy them thoroughly. 🙂
Since we’re in such a rural area, there are farm stands all over the place selling pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors at this time of year. All you really need to do is drive up, load your car full, and bring them home. I like the look of lining them up on our steps, which takes exactly no effort at all, but always looks so cheerful.
If you remember from back in the spring when I put together my planters, I used these grow bags this year for my planter inserts, so all I had to do was pull those out (with the lavender topiaries in them still perfectly in place) and plunk some mums in.
I had a moment of inspiration for one of my other planters and I did a combo of mums and baby boo pumpkins that I think turned out really cute. I love how it came together and I shared a tutorial for recreating this really inexpensive giant planter insert in this post here.
Fall Porch Decor From the Garden
We always try to use a few things that we grow ourselves, just because it’s even more enjoyable that way. Jack and Chris had so much fun growing pumpkins this summer and they ended up with some really big ones. They loved going out to check on the pumpkin patch every morning and it was just so cute. So of course I had to include a couple of their big orange pumpkins. 🙂 The rest of the pumpkins they grew will go to decorating the side porch, once we get around to doing that closer to Halloween.
We always grow quite a bit of corn in the garden too, so we try to use our own corn stalks to decorate the porch, because why not? The corn wasn’t quite fully dried yet when we put it up and it had a bit of a greenish color to it still, so that contributed to the “green and white”ness of our porch theme this year. 🙂
Some of my favourite parts of this porch are the laziest parts, and actually that happens almost every fall. I usually have some components left over from summer that still look pretty good, so I just leave them in place and work around them. In this case, I left the one urn with the ivy and the little basket full of thyme as well. They just add a little something unexpected and they make my life easier because they’re already right where they need to be.
And that’s how our front porch is looking this year!
Do you have a few fall decorations out yet in front of your house? I have to admit that it was a bit warm last week when I first set it up and it felt just a bit silly, but things have really cooled off now this week and I’m really happy that I have it done because now it just feels perfect. 🙂
