Ah, the joys of fall. The changing leaves, the moody decor, and all the excuses to whip out cozy sweaters — we’re obsessed with it all! And we’re not alone: One scroll through Instagram and you’ll find friends and influencers alike posting nods to autumn non-stop. We’re channeling this excitement by rounding up trends for the season inspiring us now. First up? The outdoor look that’s so gourd, its been hash-tagged thousands of times (and more!) — cascading fall porch decor. Think mums, pumpkins, and, of course, gourds scattered along multi-level steps in one appealing setup. Scroll below to see the gorgeousness we’re talking about!


1. @dashlifestyles: Tiny additions line these steps for one photo-worthy arrangement. We’re especially loving the metallic accents here.

2. @unplugsoycandles: When a candle company tries their hand at autumn decor, you know it has to be good. Their trick for this project? Repurposing their jumbo jar stone candles as planters.

3. @littlefrontporchfarm: Those mini-pumpkins you love make the perfect addition. Group them in little trios for a more dramatic display.

4. @tatertotsandjellow: PSA: Cornstalks actually can look stylish. This lineup is proof of just that.

5. @juliaengle: This one is festive, fresh, and uses all the harvest colors. Paired with a southern-style white porch, everything just pops.

6. @frenchbydesign: If you can look beyond that stunning, cheery barn door, you’ll find a sea of pink mums waiting to welcome you home with open arms.

7. @gina.marie.home: We’re lovin’ this lush ensemble. The oversized greenery really makes an impact on this two-stepped entry.

8. @paigewinnphoto: Hello, violets! These flower bunches really bring the trend home.

9. @steele.eclectic.farmhouse: We have a bit of an ombré sitch happening here. By working with warm hues only, you’re left with one color-tastic scene.

10. @shirinaskari: Layering pots at different levels creates a cascading effect — even if you only have one step to work with!

11. @ourlittlefoxhouse: When you don’t have any dimension, it’s still possible to give your entry a staggered feel. Simply layer outdoor mats with decorative accents (like these lanterns) for a multi-faceted look.

12. @cindimc.ivoryhomedesign: Excuse us over here while we pretend this home is ours.
