To go modern with your fall porch decorating, add new and different colors to your fall and holiday decor. Mid-century modern-inspired aquas work well, or paint your pumpkins in matte black or white. Trying a new color palette for the holidays is the perfect way to freshen up your fall decorating.

Make the front door the main attraction

One of the simplest ways to decorate your front porch for fall is to make the front door the focal point. Add a modern wreath and flank the front door with matching oversized planters that can display pumpkin topiaries, tall grasses or a collection of colorful foliage.

Use pots to create holiday-themed displays

Fall and winter weather makes it nearly impossible to keep your garden blooming. But a pot or two or three of flowers, vegetables or grasses can last longer. When creating a holiday-themed container garden, choose a large and attractive pot in a bold color. Layer the plants and items inside at varying heights and textures for visual interest.
