Looking for ways to make your fall porch cozy and inviting? A welcoming fall porch is a perfect first impression for your home!
“But I think I like fall most of all.” ~ Unknown
Yup – same.
Well and Christmas.
Okay – I guess I just love all the seasons!
But seriously – why not?
It’s a reason to change up your home and of course – a reason to have a gathering with friends and family.
Whether it’s a summer BBQ, a Friendsgiving, a Christmas celebration, they are all worth our adoration – aren’t they?
And of course – we are all well aware that our front porch is literally our home’s first impression!
So why not make a welcoming fall porch?
Even if it’s just for the UPS delivery person! Which I have accidentally opened the door before when they are dropping off the “occasional” package and been told – love the decor from (insert company name on package 😬)…
So there’s that ;)!

Items to Help Make your Fall Porch Cozy and Inviting
A Rocking Chair
I am pretty sure priority number one for making a welcoming front porch is a rocking chair.
Do you agree??
They don’t have to be expensive or fancy.
Heck – they are outside in the elements so I would hope they aren’t expensive!
Wanna know where our front porch rocker is from?
A garbage bin…
When we were in graduate school in New York.
We painted it and had to add a new seat to it but still – it was NOT expensive ;).
And is now 28 years old ;).
So keep your eye out for that cozy and welcoming rocking chair if you don’t already have one.
Cuz it’s out there waiting for you ❤️.
Fall Pillows and Throw Blankets
Fall pillows and throws are such an easy way to add coziness to ANYWHERE in your home!
And most are actually pretty reasonably priced too ;).
The pillows and throws below are all new this season and will most certainly be used for years to come :)!
The pumpkin pillow and throw above were fun fall finds last year.
The exact throw in the above photo from last year is not available anymore and I actually changed it up to currently be this throw (seen in photo above last) but there are also some other really cute ones this year – check out this collection below:
On the other side of my small front porch, I have a pretty white bench that I got last year when I painted the porch Sherwin Williams Pure White.
I put another fall pillow and throw on the bench too. I have found additional fall pillow options below for you to see what you like best ;).
Isn’t the round letterboard from Krumpets so cute?? It’s reversible too! Check it out ;).
Okay you guys… if you are following me on Instagram and watch my stories – you will know that I am obsessed with these lanterns that I found last year.
They are extremely well made and truly quite stunning in person.
I use them for my Christmas front porch as well so they are a worthy investment ;).
And one even made it to my backyard table…
Told you I love them!
A Wreath and Garland
Wreaths and garlands are EVERYWHERE!
I think I may have said that exact same thing in my fall kitchen post 🤷♀️.
But it is 100% true.
And I may or may not have about 5 or 6 fall wreaths.
This one was purchased last year when I was just starting my neutrals trend.
The garland was also a 2021 purchase and is a tad tricky to hang because it comes on a stiff twig base.
That took me a while to solve (which I did with fishing wire wrapped around the ends btw).
Please don’t look too closely ;).
But again – it is so pretty – it was worth the efforts!
Faux Flowers and Pumpkins
I do not have a green thumb.
In fact, I have the opposite of a green thumb – what is that? A black thumb?
Unless it is a succulent or on a sprinkler system, I cannot be responsible for any plants.
Thank goodness faux plants and flowers have come a long way!!
And these faux mums cannot die! Yoohoo!
Now I am just trying to decide if I need more in my yard…
The apple picking bucket was an Etsy find btw!
There are sooo many good vintage finds on that website :).
It is also where I get most of my vintage crocks.
Although my peanut butter one actually came from a local San Diego vintage store…
My faux pumpkins are literally from all over the place.
Some are super old from Pottery Barn that I actually spray painted white a couple of years ago to align with my neutrals/white attraction ;).
Some are a bulk purchase from Amazon.
That’s the best part about faux flowers and pumpkins – they are reusable year after year!
Now storing them is a whole different ball game…
Doormat and Rug
We all have doormats on our porches right?
And a fall doormat is a perfect way to make your fall porch cozy and inviting.
Have you also joined the doormat layering look with a 3×5 rug?
I have been doing it for a few years now ever since I saw it on the McGee and Co website and I no longer like the look of a doormat all on its own when I see it… It just doesn’t look right anymore to me 🤷♀️.
I change out my front porch rug about 2 or 3 times a year to match the season as well :).
My current rug is perfect for the winter season as well…
I hope you were able to find a few tips and/or inspiration for how to make your fall porch cozy and inviting with this post!
A welcoming front porch is the perfect way to greet your guests (or UPS/Amazon drivers if you are like me and they come every day ;0).
I know sometimes decorating for the seasons can seem overwhelming and exhausting.
But your most important goal for the season is to enjoy it! Whatever you do to your home – be sure it brings YOU joy and happiness.
Because in reality – life is short and joy is all that matters ;).
