Fall porch decor staples 

#1: Festive pillows 

Some fresh pillows can completely freshen up the look of your porch and we love these super cute plaid pillow covers to do just that. We also love this gray plaid pillow that honestly could work year round on your porch. This pillow is more of a taupe based gray so it can seriously pair with just about any other print, pattern or color. These inserts are also super affordable at just over $12 for a two pack. If you’ve caught yourself thinking in the past that decorative throw pillows can get a bit expensive – this is a way more affordable route and seriously just as cute, if not cuter!

#2: Faux pumpkins 

Okay, we love a pumpkin patch moment but fresh pumpkins can be spendy! We love these foam ones for a longer lasting option. If you’re looking to create a cascading pumpkin entryway this is a cost effective way to accomplish that look! You seriously can’t beat the price at just over $7. We love the classic white pumpkin for an elegant look that goes with any type of decor you have. So go to the pumpkin patch and create the memories but save on the overpriced pumpkins for decorating and just get one to carve with the fam!

#3: Fresh doormat 

Welcome mats get a lot of wear and tear throughout the year and honestly need refreshing fairly often. We love this under $12 option that would look so cute layered on top of a larger, print rug. You don’t have to spend a lot on a cute mat that really is meant to wipe your shoes off but should also give people a warm welcome to your fall ready home! 


#4: Spooky wreath 

This wreath is spooky done right! The white web and spiders are on point for Halloween but aren’t too creepy. If you’re in the idk if I love the ultra scary Halloween decorations camp and are just looking to get your feet wet, start here! This wreath is still a subtle neutral and is dare we say even pretty with the white puff branches and cobwebs?! Seriously so good at just $22.97 and the perfect touch of Halloween that your fall porch decor needs.  


#5: Giant skeleton

Okay, the grand finale! We’ve all been seeing these ALL over Instagram and we’re obsessed. People legitimately track these down in like August every year and drive to their nearest hardware store for one of these if they’re lucky enough to catch it in stock. Well we found one, that’s a BETTER price (by at least $100), in stock and practically identical. If you’ve been on the hunt for a better deal on the viral giant skeleton, don’t miss this one. Total hidden gem – your kids will flip over this
