What a pretty approach! Pumpkins and potted mums lead guests up the stairs, where simple natural wreaths dress the front doors. A trio of lighted grapevine pumpkins illuminates the landing.

Blue and white is a timeless color combination. With blue shingles and a cobalt blue door at this home, it is a natural choice. We love the unexpected twist white pumpkins and mums provide to this autumnal scene. (And we never tire of a canine greeting, either!)

A live door arrangement complete with dramatic trailing vines makes a stunning welcome. Placed in urns atop a bed of hay, orange pumpkins are the perfect contrast to a purple door.

A trio of big plaid bows in harvest hues ties this front porch scheme together. Dried cornstalks in planters draw the eyes up, while a variety of pumpkins all around nods to the bounty of the season. Bonus: A magnolia wreath is equally stunning in the winter as it is in the fall. Get the most out of your decor by simply switching the bow to transition into the winter season.

Sometimes, more is more. An abundance of gracious garland intertwined with miniature pumpkins and autumnal leaves frames this front door, where an equally full wreath is tied with not one, but two cheerful bows for maximum impact.

Mums, dried cornstalks, pumpkins, and gourds are all perfect for fall. The skeletons add a festive Halloween touch.

Pretty flowers in warm fall colors fill the abundant wreath on this front door. Mums and pumpkins nod to fall and a turkey figurine is ready for Thanksgiving. Of course, a sweet pup always makes the best greeting committee!

A bale of hay works double duty here to both infuse some texture into this harvest scene and help create levels for the various sizes of pumpkins on display. Tall grasses in the back complete the look by adding height.

There's hardly need for additional decor when the turning leaves on the trees provide such an exquisite show. Here, two doggos take in the beauty of their surroundings while a small arrangement behind them carries fall colors onto the porch.

This festive entryway is ready for Halloween! The color palette, limited to mostly oranges and blacks, is a treat for the eye. Gold-painted pumpkins infuse a touch of glam, while a jack-o-lantern, swooping bats, and two skulls on display are ready to spook trick-or-treaters.

We love the variety of pumpkins on display on these stairs. Different colors and sizes and even some carved pumpkins show off the abundance of fall's harvest.

Rustic texture welcomes at this home, where mum-filled wood planters and nubby woven rug frame the front door. Plenty of pumpkins serve as accessories, of course!
