When it comes to front porch simply some seasonal plants and planters can get the stage set. However, I like to add details to get the creativity flowing. This idea is so diverse you can actually set it for any season just by changing the plant or flower with the seasonal variety.

  • Invest in some high planters
  • Use seasonal decorations
  • Add cafe lights or fairy lights
  • Have an inviting number sign
  • Add floor mat that matches the theme
  • Hang DIY Fall wreath
  • Replace planters with seasonal varieties
  • Make wind chimes they bring charm to the space
  • Add bird bath for thirsty friends
  • DIY birdhouses or bird feeders to give food to birds
  • Add comfortable chairs and table to enjoy the space
  • Hang some waterproof frames



Here’s a beautiful view of the front porch by my friend cherished bliss that talks to my suggestions most closely.


What are the best places to shop for seasonal Fall decorations?

In my honest opinion seasonal Fall decorations for front porch are so short lived and every year we grow and our taste changes. So, I would high recommend checking out budget friendly places like:

  • Costco – where you can find bulk in good quality for a reasonable price.
  • Dollarama or dollar store – this place is best for artificial flower arrangements and pumpkins. It also offers any trendy front porch Fall decorations for the best price.
  • Home Sense – You can sometimes score great value items for home decoration
  • Walmart – good price but I am not always convinced with the quality. However, it can get you into making a great DIY project for front porch Fall planter given the great variety of craft and garden supplies.
  • Michael – I love this place. It’s a heaven for creativity. It’s a little on the high-end side giving you comparatively higher prices but coupons can make you happy. This place is best for finding unique items that are for keeps for years to come.

Without any further a due, let’s get started with this project. I was all set to arrange the porch but due to construction it is very dusty. I had a party at home so I quickly fixed what we know is a dusty and abandoned planter that had been lying there hopeless. Knowing that after a week this planter will be left in dust again, I decided to only work on this project and after the party I moved it back to my patio. One thing that hurts the most is if my flower is unhappy.



This is the before look of the planter without summer plants and some artificial garden decorations. No matter how much I clean it, the construction site factor is unavoidable. Anyways, there is always a time for everything.
