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…
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 :)!
I love this pumpkin pillow!! It is available in this lumbar size and a square.
Fits perfectly with my neutral fall decor theme!
The throw is also a perfect neutral cozy addition – you can find it here in the neutral color.
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.
The pillow is on clearance btw and seriously is sooo freaking pretty!
I bought three to put in other places around my house ;).
Okay you guys… if you are following me on Instagram and watch my stories – you will know that I am obsessed with these lanterns!
They are extremely well made and truly quite stunning in person.
I am now searching my home to figure out where I can add more of them.
Found one place in my backyard!!! That post will come later though ;).
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 is new to me this year because when I saw it – I just felt it went perfectly with my neutrals theme this season ahem year…
The garland is also new and was a tad tricky to hang because it comes on a stiff twig base.
That took me a while to solve.
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!!
My new faux mums cannot die! Yoohoo!
I only bought one of them because I had never bought from this company before and they are a tad pricey so I wanted to be 100% certain that I loved them.
And I do.
So now I am trying to decide if I need more…
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 this 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 last year.
Some are a bulk purchase from Amazon (again last year).
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.
Especially if it says Hey There Pumpkin!
Although – I have to say I have found LOTS of cute ones lately….
But no – I do not need another one 😂.
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 sooo perfect for the winter season!
Isn’t that round letterboard from Krumpets so cute?? It’s reversible too! Check it out ;).
BTW- IF I were to get another fall doormat – I kinda love this one below ;).
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!
I know sometimes decorating for the seasons can seem overwhelming and exhausting.
Your only goal should be to enjoy the season! 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 ;).
