(Our door – it doesn’t count in the 20. 🙂 )
The other day when I was getting my porch and front entry all ready for this wonderful season, I spent some time on the computer looking for ideas. I ended up with a large number of pictures for my files, and I am putting them together in one post for easy reference next year. You may have pinned many of these, but hopefully some will be new to you. I was amazed at all the creative souls out there!
Let’s begin with this home in Savannah. I thought I had a lot going on with my front steps, but this one really takes the prize!
More pumpkins on steps here, but a scarecrow has been added by the door. I used to do a scarecrow every year in our previous home. We had a giant very old hickory tree out by the road, and my scarecrow would sit out by that beautiful tree.
If you don’t have big steps, here is an idea of what to do with pumpkins and mums for a smaller area.
A bench by the door can be a great place to have a display. Isn’t that arrangement in the pumpkin wonderful?
This one is one of my favorite fall doors. I like the simplicity of the grouping, and of course, that arched door looks so cottage-y. Who could resist?
If you have giant urns by your door, you can add gourds to them to give it a seasonal element as has been done here.
You can’t really see a lot here besides a pumpkin, some mums, and a wreath, but I included it because I love a red door.
I laughed out loud at the cleverness of this one. Who doesn’t have leaves in the fall, and what better way to use them than in a door display? (and with the rake too!) Very cute.
Pottery Barn puts on the leaves in their display too.potterybarn.com
And the door at Mary Carol Garrity’s home (Nell Hill’s) looks in the mood for fall with its leaves and branches. The architectural elements by her door are amazing!
Here is another house that uses branches of leaves for their autumn display.source
Or perhaps you have cornstalks that you can use. They always add a big impact.thistlewoodfarms.com
I thought the hanging bats were a creative idea in this one from Martha.marthastewart.com
A table on the porch would be super handy for setting up a display, and aren’t those pumpkins spelling out “fall” a cute idea?
I found this door at bhg, and I adore it with its little side windows. Of course I love the mums and the white pumpkins marching up the steps.
And then, I found the same house decorated a little differently at the Lowes’ site. How about that?!
Now let’s go in a different direction…something simpler. Susie Harris’ wreaths are beautiful, and she made them herself. You can get the full directions at her blog if you would like to make one like hers.
Even more simplicity here. The double doors with bundles of twigs and other fall items is very pretty too.lessthanperfectlifeofbliss.blogspot.com
And finally, we are looking out this door from the entryway inside, but you can see that they have a lot going on with their porch…a table, cornstalks, mums, pumpkins…the whole gamut.
I hope these will help you next year if you have already done your door for fall. If you haven’t, maybe something here has sparked your creativity. Then you can get busy on it this weekend!
