Welcome to my simple fall front porch! I’m a little late with my fall posts this year, but here I am with my first official fall decor post.

I shared my luxe fall tablescape the other day, so if you missed that one, you can see it here. I’m very happy I finally had the chance to get our porch pulled together for the season.

So far, October has been such a beautiful month weather-wise, and I just wish I could bottle up this time of year with all of these gorgeous, rich colors.

I always keep my front porch ideas and decor ideas very simple – I like things that are easy and efficient!

As much as I love decorating our home from the front door to back, I have very little time to do it. Life is busy for all of us – so, here I am with my simple fall front porch in all its glory.

All you need are some vibrant-hued mums in varying colors, a small bunch of pumpkins, a few lanterns and a gorgeous wreath.

I say bring on the color! This fall, I’m keeping my color palette inside the house more muted and neutral (stay tuned for my decorating posts coming soon!), but I wanted our front porch to be layered with rich, vibrant color.

No better way to do that than to pile on the mums!fall front porch

It breaks up all the orange tones and provides a little more punch and depth as I mentioned above. From there, I added the two different orange-hued mums.

I love how the middle plants have a beautiful mix of different tones throughout, from yellow to a soft orangey-pink.vibrant front porch colorful flowers on front porch

    Hi! Unfortunately I don’t….it’s been over 11 years when we built our home! It’s a mix of warm and cool grey stone, and we chose to have the mortar flush with the surface. I hope that help! xox
