Having just bought my first home, I’m spending a lot more time looking at home decor than ever before—and spending my money on items to make the house more “my own”!
The transition from summer to fall is one of my favorites.
Because the weather doesn’t shift too much in Southern California, creating a cozy fall front porch through more muted hues, pumpkins, and flowers is a fantastic way to create the autumnal feeling.
Here are my tips for decorating a cozy fall front porch!
Decorating Your Front Porch with Fall Foliage
This will be our first holiday season in our new home so I’ve never been so excited to decorate. Most garden centers have a pretty good selection of perennials, plants, and decorations for the holidays.
I’m SO in love with my mums!
If you want to add some more “fall” to your front porch or even balcony, here are some of the best things to include to give it that cozy autumn feel:
- Chrysanthemums (Mums), Amaranthus, and Marigolds — they come in beautiful oranges, yellows, reds, and whites
- Pumpkins + Gourds — artificial, carved, uncarved
- Sage, Ornamental Cabbage, and Kale — add a little greenery to the mix
- Crotons or Ornamental Grasses — beautiful fall-colored foliage
- Solar Lanterns + Candles
Be sure to check what types of foliage grows best in your local climate, too!
