‘Tis the season to festoon our fall porches with the abundant accents that the harvest season brings.  Autumn offers us a chance to change up the decor on the front porch to welcome friends and neighbors during this favorite time of year.   If you’re looking for inspiration for ways to embellish your entry in original ways, consider these ten festive ideas for adding seasonal accents to your fall porch! 

1.  Tiered Pumpkins.   A fall porch isn’t complete without a pumpkin or two.  Whether placed along the path or layered in an urn, stack these favorite fall accents vertically for a dramatic effect.

2.  Extra or Unexpected Orange Accents.   You’ve got the pumpkins, now think about the extras!  Incorporate additional decor in shades of orange to complement your pumpkins such as pillows, end tables, colorful chairs, and paper lanterns!
