The front door is set back and she likes to keep everything symmetrical in that area of her porch. Don’t you just want to knock on that pretty black front door Anne painted last year?
Displaying pairs of mums, pumpkins, and lanterns on both sides of her entryway create a beautiful welcome for you! You have to go check out how she created her simple fall floral wreath for a fraction of the cost of buying one!

She gave that vibe to her front porch with some great farmhouse decorating elements. Using the steps and area next to the sidewalk to display pumpkins, mums and lanterns makes her small front porch feel bigger.
She recently updated her front door so she switched up her usual fall wreath for a farmhouse style flower basket for something fresh. I bet you have flower pots that you plant annuals in each spring and summer.
Anne painted her baskets black to coordinate with the other planters and decor items on her front porch. For fall, AnnMarie pulled out a galvanized olive bucket she already had to use as a planter for her mums.
That’s the planter that’s always on the porch and gets changed out seasonally with different plants or flowers. But adding some burlap to wrap the liner gives AnnMarie all the farmhouse feels she loves! Using a variety of flower pots adds visual interest and makes it look “upscale” when you’re decorating your porch for fall. Anne added a colorful coleus plant with a small mum in a $2 basket she picked up from our local farmer’s market.
Farmer’s markets and garden centers have beautiful heirloom pumpkins, but they come with a pretty high sticker price. But if you dig through that big box outside the supermarket, you’ll find some great pumpkins like we did. We wanted to fill our porches with pumpkins but even at half the price that can add up quickly.
Anne mixed some faux mini pumpkins from her stash with some real grocery store gourds in an iron planter. Using wood crates and boxes adds lots of texture and more visual interest. That little pumpkin would look lost between the large mums and lantern on AnnMarie’s front steps.
Another way to add some visual interest and height in your fall porch decorating is with a tall statement piece. Anne uses this tall, three-tiered iron planter on her front porch and changes how she styles it seasonally.
So that little Z tucked in between the gourds is the perfect personal touch for their family’s fall porch. What fall front porch wouldn’t be complete without some candle lanterns?
We love lanterns in all different sizes, shapes, colors and styles. This traditional black lantern looks super cute filled with little faux white pumpkins (less than a dollar a piece!
