Fall is quickly approaching and although Summer has still got a few more weeks, it won’t stop me daydreaming about crunchy leaves and hot apple cider. The general rule of thumb I live by when preparing to start the holiday decorating is to wait until September 1st, but with the stores busting out all the holiday decor already I figured the planning (and buying) could start now. I’m so excited that for the first time ever I have a porch that can be decorated, and I love that it’s such a fun way to welcome visitors to your home. I spent some time on good ole Pinterest to get some inspiration for some porch decorating ideas and I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below.

6. Leaf Garland

Leaf garlands make a super easy Fall decoration and a big statement. You can pick them up at any craft store, or even the dollar store for relatively low cost. Add in some pumpkins and a wreath and you have a fabulously decorated porch for the holidays.
