Fall is officially here, and whether you're planning for trick-or-treaters or hosting family and friends for game days or holidays, it's the perfect time to give your front porch a refresh. Think updated lighting, some extra seating and simple harvest decor that won't break the bank. Make a good first impression with these stylish, budget-friendly finds that will make your home look like the most inviting one on the block.


Greet your guests before you even open the door with this simple "hello" coir outdoor doormat. The textured surface will scrape dirt and debris off the bottom of shoes to help keep your entryway clean, and since it's not seasonal or holiday-specific, you'll be able to keep it out all year.

As the days get shorter, good lighting can have one of the biggest impacts on your home's curb appeal in the fall and winter. Brighten up your outdoor space with classic cafe string lights like these weather-resistant, incandescent lights that extend 48 feet.

Decorating for fall doesn't mean everything has to be overly fall-themed. Throw pillows are a great way to change up decor with the seasons. This braided cream-and-gray lumbar pillow from Walmart's MoDRN line that looks like it could be made from your favorite sweater will add just the right amount of coziness to any outdoor seating area. Plus, it'll look great through winter, too.

Finely crafted with all-weather wicker, e-coat and powder coat steel finish that resists rusting during inclement weather, this lightweight piece combines long-lasting durability with chic design.
