Enjoy some fall porch decor ideas including beautiful hanging flower baskets, planters and groups of gourds for the entire season.
Like most people, I love autumn and fall porch decor is always on the top of my to-do list. Whenever possible I try to use elements from nature because as I've said before, nothing is as beautiful as nature itself.
This post is sponsored by Proven Winners Direct, however, all opinions are my own.
Ideas for Fall Porch Decor
Flowers are always my first choice. These Lady Godiva orange calendula mono hanging baskets from Proven Winners Direct are big, bright, colorful and lush.
I added some new chains in black from the hardware store to lower the planters for my porch and reused hooks from old hanging planters.
Proven Winners Direct
Back in the spring, I collaborated with Proven Winners Direct to create a beautiful new garden bed by my mailbox.
The convenience of online ordering through Home Depot and Amazon combined with such high-quality plants can't be beat. The plants are delivered right to your door in special protective boxes and packaging so you know they will arrive in good condition.
For this year's fall porch decor, I ordered 2 of the orange-flowered hanging baskets and 2 four packs of Grande Lady Godiva yellow English Marigolds for my planters. I really like the bright cheeriness of these marigolds also known as Calendula.
To give the planters some height I added a couple of simple LED lanterns. Having a little extra light will come in handy as the days become shorter.
Tip: To make the lanterns stand up a little taller than the flowers I used one of the plastic nursery containers that held the flowers. First, fill it with soil and then flip it upside-down and pressed it into the soil leaving a little shelf for the lantern to sit.
Indian Corn Swag
A simple Indian corn swag is all that's needed for the front door. The darker fall colors work well with the bright orange and yellow flowers in the baskets and planters.
Pumpkins Gourds and Pine Cones
Lots of faux pumpkins, gourds, and pine cones surround the planters for a true fall harvest feeling. It's too early for the real thing but I can always add them to the mix.
I can already feel the fresh crisp air of fall. And, I can't wait to invite some family and friends over for a get-together. I think they'll love this cheery fall decor as it greets them when they arrive.

I love that you styled this entryway with green pumpkins. They really tie in nicely with the fresh garden flowers.
Thanks Linda. I wanted to keep it neutral so that the flowers could shine.
I love your front entry decorated for fall!
I have purchased Proven Winners plants for my gardens and didn't know they sell direct!
I need to check them out next year!
Thanks Robin. You should definitely try them!
Such a pretty entry with all the fall decor. Nice selection of plants too.
Thanks Linda, the plants make it.
Love it all and simple enough for anyone to do. I may steal your idea for the lanterns in the pots. Our patio is hid so much by tall shrubs so I'm always looking for ideas to add height.
Thanks Rosemary. Sometimes it's hard to come up with ways to add height, but it does really add to the overall look of the porch.
You did great! I forgot that plant was also called marigold - maybe summer marigold! Earlier this year I saw some beautiful pumpkins in our Dollar Tree. But they were sold out when I went back to buy some. Oh well maybe more will come soon!
Thanks Sandy. Hopefully your dollar tree will get more pumpkins in. You can paint them to the color you want. Also, I noticed that Trader Joes had live pumpkins and gourds in this week.
Your ideas are perfect for my apartment back porch. I love the idea of fresh flowers for decorating for Fall. Proven Winners has always been a favorite supplier for me.
Thanks for the inspiration, Patti.
Thanks Meegan. You are always so sweet. I think these flowers would be perfect for your back porch.
It looks lovely....perhaps consider changing out the white plastic hanging baskets? Maybe the wire ones with the cocoa mats.....no need to even replant.
That's a great idea Elaine. I just may do that yet. Thanks for sharing.
I love this! First of all I'm in love with your door and the color of the flowers and decorative pumpkins all go so well together. I don't have much of an knack for decorating outside so I might have to copy you! That's really cool about how you can order those planters. I have to check those out.
Dee, I'm so glad to hear that you love my front porch decor. Feel free to copy away. Though I think you may be inspired by all the choices Proven Winners Direct has to offer.

Your planters are so pretty! I have never actually ordered from Proven Winners Direct before (bought plenty in stores though). They have the best plants!
Thanks Pam. I agree with you about Proven Winners plants. I've never had a problem with them from the nursery. And I was so impressed at how well they were packaged when I ordered them online. Give it try. It will save you a lot of time during this busy season.
Love your fall porch! Let the cool down begin!!
I am so happy for the arrival of fall temperatures! I love your porch decor! Those marigolds are so pretty, and I love how the hanging baskets draw your eye up to take in the whole scene! Very pretty 🙂
Thanks Maureen. We really needed something to bring the eye up. The hanging marigolds were just the trick.
It's still super hot here and my brain is having a hard time recognizing fall. I'm ready but I don't see things getting cooler till about October. I love these planters and you're going to really like those led lanterns. I have one in my garden and forget I left it on, that was four months ago and it's still working. I was surprised at how much light it actually put out. Also beautiful plant choice and I really like the Indian corn on the door. This is so inviting.
Thanks Carole. Inviting is exactly what I was going for.
