Fall Front Porch 2019


It’s the first day of October and finally starting to feel like Fall here in New Hampshire. We’ve had an unseasonably warm September and I couldn’t get motivated to start decorating for Fall wearing sandals and capris!

It was so beautiful out this past Sunday so I hauled out my bag-o-fake pumpkins and other outside decor to try and get inspired.

I bought this adorable wall basket on my Christmas Tree Shop haul last month and I couldn’t wait to use it for Fall. It’s nice and long and was only $7.99!

I like to use a mixture of textures and natural elements when decorating. I used a rattan pumpkin nestled between two burlap pumpkins that I had painted a light green. I filled the rest of the basket in with a mixture of Fall leaf picks and dried hydrangeas. I finished it off with a draping burlap bow and a little wooden pumpkin sign. If you have vinyl siding you don’t have to make a hole to hang things; they make these great vinyl siding hooks-seriously, they are amazing and easy to use. You can get them here:

Fall Display

I decided to go a little bit rustic this season the porch. I brought out a $2 chair I bought a few years ago at Savers and topped it with a very old galvanized tub. I filled it with a Fall garland and added a faux white pumpkin in the middle. I added the ceramic pumpkins and a big rattan pumpkin near the chair and hung the metal welcome sign using a vinyl siding hook to finish the little display. The ceramic pumpkins have strings of battery operated fairy lights that are on timers to illuminate my porch in the evening.

I added a pretty Chinese lantern wreath on the door

I went for a simple look this year on my porch and I’m pleased with how it all turned out. I love how the muted colors play against the gray house and light blue door.
