Greet Your Guests

Most Lovely Things added a laid-back greeting for guests on the glass pane of this cheerful front door entrance by writing a simple “hello” on the glass with a water-based paint pen.

Glittering Leaf Garland

Red front porch with variety of plants and pumpkins

Fall doesn’t have to mean red and orange. Here, muted shades of cream and gray add a touch of sophistication to this fall front porch. Pile pumpkins, lanterns, and potted fall mums along the steps to create a welcoming front entry.


Sunflower Hanging Vase

Hanging metal flower container on front door

Let a vase of fall flowers do the decorative heavy lifting. Pack “Teddy Bear” sunflowers with rose hips and maple leaves in a watertight, galvanized vase. Then, hang it from your front door, replacing the water and foliage as needed. Or, for a no-fuss fall wreath, create this design using faux flowers.


Tin Basin Container Garden

Outdoor fall décor with plants and corn

Show off your gardening prowess with a tin basin overflowing with fall finds. Set next to your door, it invites color and conversation. To make this arrangement, place pots of croton shrubs in the basin’s center. Surround the front with droopy dried wheat, and fill the back with tall grasses. Lay dried Indian corn beside the display.
