Looking for fresh fall porch ideas? Read on as I share my 25 favorites for 2016. They’re guaranteed to put you in the fall spirit!
Hello, friends. Yes, it’s that time of year when we trade our flip flops for boots and our petunias for mums. Although summer’s my favorite season overall, fall is my favorite season for decorating–especially sprucing up the front porch. I guess it’s because I know in just a few weeks–on Halloween–dozens of little ones and their parents will be coming up the steps to be greeted at our front door.
This year my fall porch is going to look a bit different, though. Rather than hauling out all of my usual autumn décor, I decided to peruse Pinterest for some fresh fall porch ideas. And I found so many it was hard to narrow the field down to just 25!
Every one of these ideas is unique and beautiful. And all are guaranteed to put you in that warm and welcoming frame of mind that seems to go hand-in-hand with autumn.
