No Fuss Fall Porch Ideas

Once the first orange leaf hits the ground you’d think we lived in a Tim Burton movie. There are inflatable ghosts dancing on the front lawn, glittery spiders crawling up homes, garlands of leaves snaking up posts, bushels of hay seating friendly scarecrows and unnaturally large pumpkins and pots of mums in galvanized buckets. For the same reasons why I don’t prepare my Christmas decorations in August, I take a no fuss approach to autumnal decor.

It begins as all decorating exercises begin, be inspired by the signals of the season. Like getting excited over a new variety of grape (hello Cotton Candy!) I soak in the colors and shapes of pumpkins and gourds offered at the local nursery. Once the staples are in place, flourish with dependable accents, like buntings and flowers, and start layering.

A simple gathering of pumpkins creates an outdoor vignette.
