Christmas isn’t the only chance you get to create great outdoor light displays. Add a little magic to your fall front porch decorations by incorporating a few of our favorite ideas to illuminate any outdoor space. When it’s time to gather together, decorative porch lights provide the perfect ambiance to welcome both the season and your guests.
Whether you want subtle patio accent lights or a bright display that spans your entire entryway, get the inspiration you’ve been looking for with five of our favorite, easy front porch decorating ideas.
1. Make a Soft Statement with Ivory LED Candles
Flameless LED candles add a subtle, soft and sophisticated touch to your front porch, without the risk of real fire. Arrange several sizes together to make a more natural looking display, or let large models stand on their own to create a stronger statement. Keep your votive holders and lanterns gleaming all season long – our cream-colored flickering LED candles mimic the lifelike glow of traditional candles, last longer and create a counterpoint for more traditional, warmly colored fall porch decorations.
2. Layer in Enchanting, Illuminated Glass Orbs
Sometimes a touch of sparkle can summon all the magic you’ve been seeking. Battery-powered products like our gorgeous, incandescent pre-lit gold mercury glass orbs shine from within to deliver a romantic glow in one of the season’s hottest finishes. Captivate your guests and even strangers strolling by with these stunning glass orbs. Cluster small, medium and large pieces together to clearly draw the eye, or scatter them across your porch for a more luminous look.
3. Add Vintage Charm with Mismatched Lanterns
Lanterns add a touch of delicate nostalgia to front porch decorating ideas, while producing a soft and serene glow to light the way for welcomed guests. Plus, our lanterns are easy to mix, match and move around to create the perfect look and feel. First, decide which areas of your porch you’d like to accent with a lantern or if you want to make an entire display full of different sizes, shapes and designs. Keep the look classic yet contemporary by pairing different lantern styles and finishes together.
4. Light up the Night with a Selection of String Lights
Your front porch can truly come to life with our selection of spectacular string lights, from classic strands of white to multicolored and themed designs. Make your space sparkle with our copper wire LED string lights to take advantage of this season’s hottest metal trend. Hang them high so neighbors can see the subtle show as daylight fades, or wrap them around a few of your other fall front porch decorations to make them truly shine. You can even use strands of string lights to fill lanterns and other objects with a warm glow all their own.
5. Elevate Patio Plants with Pre-Lit Branches
Make bright and beautiful porch decorating as pain-free as possible when you stick a set of shining pre-lit branches into your existing porch decorations, such as flower pots or large, free-standing decorative vases. By combining the natural look of plant life with modern, micro-lights, these branches make a great focal point or accent item for a festive fall porch. Simply place them in your plants, plug them in and enjoy the soft effect they add to your front porch.
