My Fall Front Porch

Welcoming Fall Porch Decorating Ideas kellyelko.com

What says welcome better than a welcoming front porch?

My porch may be small but what it lacks in size it makes up for in charm and it’s strutting it’s stuff all decked out for fall.

You’ve seen my fall home tour – now it’s time to see the outside.

 

Wreath – check!

Vintage – double check. A huge metal bin is the perfect container for these fun plants that remind me of cattails that grow around lakes.

  1. Love the Porch!! Perfectly pleasing in every way!!! πŸ˜‰ if given a choice it would be a tough one, but either Sylva or Poppyfield. Thank you for sharing and giving!

  2. Gorgeous front porch! Love all your antique containers. The gnome looks great there too! Thanks for the contest. I like the Lakewood autumn oats and the Poppyfield.
    Happy Fall Ya’ll!

  3. Your front porch looks great, I love the wreath and the metal bin. I’d have a hard time choosing which wreath I would get from Wreath Depot but I do really like the Pumpkin Patch one for Halloween.

  4. Oh my gosh…what a lovely entry to what clearly is a warm and welcoming home! It makes you want to linger on the porch and just visit awhile. Very nice. If I were to pick one of the wreathes, I think (and this was really hard to choose because I have about 11 favorites!) would be the Sunflower Medley. Just lovely. Thanks for your post…now I’ve got to get busy with my porch!

  5. Love the front porch. Very welcoming. Hard to pick a favorite wreath, but I guess I would have to say the All Seasons Adirondack Silk.

  6. I love and adore your blog. I have never heard of the The Wreath Company. hard to pick just one but if forced to I would go with the FALL CINNAMON AND BERRY WREATH.

  7. It would be very hard to pick just one favorite thing about your porch. Everything blends so well together and really says, ( its all about fall.) I guess if I had to choose a wreath it would have to be the Lavender Fields.

  8. What a pretty blend of color, texture, and shapes. I love the look of antique containers filled with fresh flowers. The cabbage and concrete finials add to the design as well as the surprise factor of the gnome. I really love the Lavender Fields wreath. Thanks for the inspirations in your designs.

  9. Your fall porch is quite inviting and the beautiful wreath welcomes and invites people in. I strive for that look on my front porch. I like the Lakewood Autumn Oats Wreath and the Fall Cinnamon and Berry Wreath. They all are beautiful. Thanks for an enticing wake-up.

  10. Thank you for such a great giveaway, I would choose the Windsor Silk Spring Door Wreath so I could use it year round if I wanted to. Your porch looks great too!

  11. I would choose the Sunflower Medley – I find that time of the year between summer and full-on fall a hard one to decorate for. Sunflowers are the perfect flower to transition between seasons!

  12. Your fall porch is lovely and the mums wonderful. My favorite time of year is autumn – while I now live in SW GA, my family were from the NE and Midwest and I love autumn days, crisp evenings and the colors of fall. I fell in love with the 22″ Maple Leaf Fall Silk Door Wreath – it reminds me of my family!

  13. Autumn love…what a marvelous greeting your porch is for visitors! I own a traditional red brick ranch but use pops of teal (my front door), red-orange and yellow so I would pick the Sylvia or the Valencia to blend with my russet hanging lantern, yellow mums…

  14. Thank you so much for sharing your love of antiques and creative and fun ways to decorate and display them! Thank you also for the wreath contest! I like the Winding Brook Silk Tear Drop Swag. Thanks again for the opportunity and chance to win, and to the Wreath Depot for their generosity, whoever the winner may be!

  15. I just started filling your blog. I just love your ideas, you have inspired me. My favorite wreath is Lavender Fields….I can almost smell beautiful lavender looking at this! Thank you for all your wonderful ideas, your work is beautiful!

  16. Lakewood Autumn Oats wreath would be my choice. The subtle green gives it a southern autumn look and would blend nicely with my new door on order to provide a bit more light into the foyer. This is a great website for year-round door dΓ©cor – thanks for sharing it!

  17. The Cottage Garden wreath would be perfect on my door. All of these are equally lovely. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas.

  18. Your porch is beautiful! Perfect touches – the gnome, pumpkins, gourds, containers…al of it!
    I love the Maple Leaf wreath. It was very hard to choose a favorite!

  19. Hi,

    Your porch is amazing and I am inspired. I like the exact same one you have on your porch. I did go to the site and I am going to bookmark this for future shopping!

    Thanks,
    Marsha

  20. It was so much fun looking at all of the wreaths. I would love any of them, but I think Lavender Fields is the one I would choose. I look forward to reading your blog, you give me inspiration!

  21. I love the Fall Maple Leaf Wreath, but it was a hard choice! Fall is a fun time of the year to decorate especially with all the natural and dried items found right outside our door. The rack in the old tin bin was great and must find an old rack…do you think my husband would mind if I dismantled ours?!!!

  22. Oh my…the beautiful choices!! We live in a condo and a wreath is our only ‘outdoor’ decoration. The lovely Maple Leaf wreath would celebrate the colors of our ‘indoor’ space! Thank you for the opportunity to own one!

  23. Your porch is beautiful…definitely inspiring. All the wreaths are lovely, but my favorite is the Orchard Bounty πŸ™‚

  24. Abbington Berry Wreath with out a doubt… Just look at it ..on that gorgeous vintage door!!! yep…. that’s the one!!! Soooo happy to see your post this morning… My porch is small like yours.. so now.. I have new inspiration!!!!! πŸ™‚ Beautiful!!

  25. Your porch is beautiful! So welcoming and inspiring. I love the mix of elements and that cute little sparkly gnome makes me smile. I spent some time on the website looking at wreaths, and it was a very hard choice. I would be thrilled with any of them, but I especially was drawn to the Fall Glade. That touch of blue and yellow would just sing against my yellow house! Thanks for the chance to win! LOVE your blog – first thing I read each morning!

  26. What beautiful wreaths — so hard to choose! Thank you so much for sharing your porch with us and an opportunity to own such a lovely wreath. I would definitely go with a fall one and I think my favorite is “Maple Leaf Fall Silk Door Wreath 22 inches”. Thanks!

  27. Your front porch is amazing and I love the simplicity (and cost effectiveness) of using clay pots for your mums … The Wreath Depot is a find and I love the Renaissance Harvest front door wreath.

  28. Love decorating for the seasons. My favorite is the Abigton Berry Silk Door Fall wreath. I have bookmarked their site, what a great selection. Happy Fall!

  29. Such a pretty porch! And so many great wreath choices. I’d pick a fall wreath, maybe pumpkin medley!

  30. I like the Sunflower Medley or the Liberty Rose. They aren’t exactly fall wreaths, but it’s definitely not fall yet here in Texas!

  31. Your porch is beautiful. It’s so inviting. I love it. My favorite wreath is the sunflower medley. It’s so perfect for my home. Thanks for the giveaway. πŸ™‚

  32. I just love the “Poppyfield Fall Front Door Wreath 22 in” and it would make my house the most gorgeous on my block!

    Your posts are always so wonderful, I have taken lots of inspiration from them, thanks so much Kelly!

  33. Your porch is amazing-I’d like to put out mums & cabbages but the deer would finish them off overnight!
    I really like the Poppyfield wreath-I think it could be added to for each season-like little snowmen for Christmas,etc!!

  34. I love the porch! I wish I could do something like this, but our road is closed for construction. No one would see it! πŸ™ it’d be a hard choice, but it would be between the Maple And Sunflower Natural Fall Wreath and the Sunflower Medley Decorative Wreath 22 inch.

  35. These are wonderful! So is your porch! I would probably choose the All Seasons Adirondack, but there are so many that I would love.

  36. You made an interesting use of plants, vintage planters, and the wreath. The wreath wonderfully ties it all together. Beautifully done!

    Tough choice between Red Oak or Highland Fall, love them both.

  37. Your front porch makes me feel cozy and happy! I love everything about how you are welcoming fall! I would love to have the Abingdon Berry wreath, but every single one is gorgeous. Thank you for the inspiration πŸ™‚

  38. I love what you did with the porch. It is unique and not one that you see on every house in the neighborhood. You are extremely creative and your style is unique. Too many beautiful fall wreaths, but if I had to choose my favorites, I would go with Amelia’s Hydrangea or the Nantucket Autumn.

  39. I love your porch ! The little gnomes are adorable and add such a sweet touch to your fall decor. All the wreaths on The Wreath Depot are beautiful. I would have to say my favorite is the Hudson Holiday Winter Wreath.

  40. I love the Valencia Red Berry. It would look perfect on my glass front door. I will bet every one that walks by your house has to stop and admire your fantastic front porch. My front porch is really small, but I could put a couple of things on it. I hope who ever wins it will use it year after year with a smile on their face.

  41. What a welcoming entrance into your home! I love the Sweet Hannas sunflower Wreath, it reminds me of my Step-Mom!

  42. It looks lovely! We are moving and our door will be a dark red. I like the cottage garden silk wreath, I think the white flowers will look nice contrasting with the red.

  43. Evergreen and Berry Artificial Wreath but they are all so beautiful that it was hard to pick! Love you blog too!

  44. I love your porch. It is so warm and welcoming. I would love to have the same Valencia berry wreath you have. Thanks for the opportunity to win this giveaway. Have a wonderful week.

  45. I love hanging a new wreath for each season. there are some gorgeous choices for fall here! But I love the lavendar wreath for late winter.

  46. I love the wreath on your porch… Has it all. I would give the wreath to my daughter and her husband . They just bought a fixer upper and have worked so hard to make it a home. Thank you on advance. shirley Maxey

  47. Hi- this is my first time here and it was a picture of your front door on Pinterest that got me! I love the wreath you chose because it looks like it belongs on just such an old oak farmhouse door. I scrolled through the other wreaths and liked the Highland Fall one almost as much as the Valencia you chose. Our house is the only one visible from our small country road and I like sprucing up the porch for my neighbors to enjoy. They would love your porch, I am sure!

  48. The Abingdon Berry Silk Door Fall Wreath (18 in) caught my eye. It has a “vintage appeal” and would really POP on my white door.

  49. There are many lovely wreaths to choose from… I chose the Nashua Fall Blossom Silk Wreath.
    I love the rich colors; it will be a compliment to my living room/dining room color scheme when guests enter into my home.

    Happy Fall, Y’all!
    Bobbi

  50. Man, so hard to pick just one! The pumpkin patch silk is really cute! And I really like the Lakewood autumn oats wreath too. Front door and back door door maybe πŸ™‚

  51. I love the wreath on your door. I would also choose the Valencia Red Berry Silk Door Wreath. Perfect for fall.

  52. I would choose the Renaissance Harvest Front Door Wreath. I love the fall colors and the touch of sunflowers in it. It would look fantastic on my door! It’s my favorite time of year.

  53. So many lovely wreaths to choose from, but I choose The Bewitched Halloween wreath. I really need to update my front door wreath and this one is absolutely stunning! it would just set off my fall and Halloween decorations.

  54. I love the one on your front door. I would choose that one and give it to my daughter and son inlaw because they bought a fixer up house and worked so hard making it a home. Thank you , Shirley Maxey

  55. Oh my goodness!! So many beautiful wreaths it was truly hard to choose just one. But since that’s what we need to do I’ll have to go with the sunflower one on the 1st page. Can’t remember the official name, kept flipping back and forth so much! LOL

  56. LOVE your front door. It is so welcoming.

    Valencia Red Berry is the wreath that is my favorite. It is everything I think of when I think of autumn!

  57. The Abingdon Berry wreath is my choice, although they could all be my favorites! They are all so lovely. Your front porch looks fantastic! Thank you.

  58. It was hard to pin down one, there were so many cool ones in those warm red tones. But I think the Lakewood Autumn Oats or the Valencia Red Berry

  66. I am in love with the Nantucket Autumn Harvest Swag and thank you for the gorgeous porch inspiration.
    I am going to use this gorgeous Fall weather weekend to get my porch and planters ready for Fall.

  67. You have really outdone yourself on the outside decorations! They are beautiful and so creative. What a tough decision to make with all those beautiful, but my favorite would have to be the Glenwood Harvest wreath. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  68. Inviting entrance! Feel as if l could step inside for cider & donuts! If chosen l would enjoy Grey son Meadow Silk for our cabin. Just love all your creative touches!!

  69. That was a tough decision but I think I would choose the Sheffield. That would be the first step in getting a beautiful front porch like yours.

So, if the powers that be choose my number, could I please, please, please have a few extra days ??? I’d REALLY love that lavender wreath!

  73. Nothing says warm and inviting more than fall, the colors are my favorite. I would love the natural maple autumn leaf wreath for that special place on my door to welcome all my guests. Thanks……

  74. Oh the Nature’s Harvest Fall Wreath is just divine! I’ve always admired pretty seasonal porches and just haven’t been able to pull it off! Love the little gold hat on the gnome, very cute.

  75. I love your front porch!!!! Ours is small as well so I understand your challenge. It was hard to narrow it down to one wreath, but I love the All Seasons Adirondack Silk.

  76. I have pick just one favorite?? All are lovely, but I do like the Sheffield Fall.

    Your porch is just lovely and perfectly composed–I love the use of the metal bins!

  77. So many pretty wreaths to choose. Love that The Wreath Depot offers silk and dried floral. I really love their Marvel Hydrangea Wreath. It’s gorgeous. Thanks for the giveaway, Kelly!

  78. The Maple Leaf Fall Wreath is beautiful and with the cooler weather it’s a lovely reminder of holidays just around the corner. What a gorgeous way to welcome guest into your home! Love your blog and the ideas I get from it!

  79. Your porch is really beautiful! And so many gorgeous wreaths to choose from! I’m just building my Halloween decor, so the Bewitched Halloween would be perfect!

  80. I love your front porch. Especially the vintage folding chair! The Wreath Depot is amazing, too. I really like the Poppyfield wreath.

  81. After much debate (with myself) I chose the “Magnolia Blossom Silk Door Wreath, 22 in.” There were so many gorgeous wreaths, it was hard to decide on just one. But I have been fascinated by the idea of using Magnolia leaves and blossoms for a wreath for the last year. A silk wreath would last much longer. My grandmother gave me a Magnolia tree to plant in the front yard of our first home back in 1967. Today it is a beautiful specimen. I have had a soft spot for Magnolias ever since.

  82. There are some really gorgeous wreaths featured on the Website! My favorite one that I would pick is the Rose Blossom Seasonal Door Wreath.

  83. I found your blog in a furniture search for a client. Your content is wonderful. I love adding vintage pieces in my designs, the character just can’t be obtained from the new pieces.
    I am not real big on silk flowers but I do really I like the Abingdon Berry Silk Wreath, It looks very natural and I like
    the looseness of the design. Your porch decorations are beautiful!
    Thanks!

  84. LOVE your ideas..LOVE your porch! I have 3 boys, including identical twins!! My oldest is 28 and the twins are 24. I’m a single mother and live in an apartment..but I love to decorate the front porch and my neighbors seem to like it..I also decorate our hallway..look forward to the change in seasons!!!!! Thanks for all your great ideas! I find decorating to very therapeutic!!! xox
