Fall Front Porch (plum, ivory and orange)
Sharing my fall front porch full of plum, ivory, and even a little bit of orange!
I’m finally sharing our fall front porch now that we are into October. ;) Oh well, better late than never!
I don’t really do a lot of decorating for Halloween so this will stay up until I get to the holiday decorating so I do still have some time to enjoy it. How about you? Do you decorate for Halloween or only fall?
Anyway, let me show you a little of my fall decorated front porch. The very most I have ever decorated it for fall…ever. And I’m really enjoying it.
I love this mat I picked up at The Home Depot layered on top of the black and white buffalo check rug. (I’ll link everything I used at the bottom of this post…scroll down to get em)
Looks so festive with just those two things alone.
And loving how the “welcome” sign I made recently looks with it all.
By the way, my mums did not cooperate and bloom (the orange ones down front) for me but I figured I needed to share before fall was over! lol
Remember this sign from a few years ago? You can get all the details >>> here.
I found a few branches with leaves on the ground and used those as filler around those small pumpkins and the lantern.
Oh…and the table it’s sitting on is this one.
We found this bench at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago. The pillowcases are new and are just covering my usual spring/summer pillows.
I put two of these wreaths on each side of the porch on the windows. (new windows, yay!)
But first I added more of the small pumpkins. (that started out orange but I painted white)
The other one here and two more new pillowcases. (old windows, boo! haha…these are going soon)
You might remember that table too. It’s the tile top table I did and it sits out here.
You can find all the details on it >>> here.
And how about that basket? Does it look familar?
Yep, it’s part of my recent haul.
Told y’all I’d probably leave this one as-is and just use it for my fall decor…and I did!
I loved the color and just ended up walking around my yard collecting fall leaves to fill it with.
And a close up of these pretty pillows.
Perfect fall colors.
A new fall flag right at the steps of our porch.
I hope you enjoyed a little peek at our fall front porch.
Hoping to have a new front door/sidelites someday soon. It actually doesn’t look quite as bad in the photos as it does in real life..thank goodness! ;)
But 40+ years is wearing on it!
SOURCE LIST for some of what I decorated with:
There are a couple of “similar” items because I couldn’t find the exact ones online.
And I also put a few “fall” things in our home too. Thought I’d just share them here today with the porch.
What a sweet saying. And so easy to just print out and place in a frame for fall.
I just love pulling out this “give thanks” sign I made years ago. It’s probably one of the best quotes ever.
Since we live on the coast and I have a coastal home, I typically just add pumpkins to my regular seashell decor.
The laundry room got this “in all things” sign I made some time back.
I love this sign and need a truck to fill with hay and pumpkins just like that! :)
I hung my coastal fall wreath on the mirror in the kitchen.
And the aqua coffee bar got the “gather sign” and a few pumpkins here and there.
Welcoming guests (but we don’t really have any right now…so just us ;) ) for fall.
A few fall touches and my “hello, fall sign” from last year.
PIN it to save it!
Have a beautiful weekend, friends! We’ll be back at it this weekend with more condo reno. (sanding, painting the ceilings…and maybe even painting the walls…we’ll see! Follow along with me on Instagram to see what we are up to.)
So inspirational. Your ideas help me focus on those touches that really make the difference between a house and a home. In these crazy times, thank you for all you share so generously.
Thank you, Tina! I’m so glad it’s inspiring you. :) xoxo
Nancy, your porch looks so warm and welcoming!! Beautiful everything! I can’t think of one thing to focus on. Beautiful!!
Thank you, Christina! I am enjoying it so much. I have no idea why I’ve never done a fall porch like this before. :) xo
Hi Nancy! Everything looks so pretty. I choose fall over Halloween anytime. I love your potted flowers. It all looks so welcoming and adorable.
Thank you, Cheryl! Yes! xoxo
Hello fellow Virginian,
Love your style. Elegant, yet simple and understated. It just shows that a few touches goes a long way.
Hey there!! Thank you so much, Lisa. :) xo
Lovely porch! You managed to combine Autumn and coastal so tastefully. I have company coming almost every weekend and need to get my porch ready. Hunting season down here is always full of visitors ;) It’s like living at the beach and everyone wants to come visit when summer begins!! I’m keeping up with your condo progress!! It’s coming along so nicely!
Thank you, Cecilia! Oh wow, yes, that makes total sense! Yes…we were at it again this past weekend! :) xo
Coastal gone Fall….that’s the new title I’m giving to you. For someone who really hasn’t decorated a porch too much you’ve done it so beautifully and no worries about the door….that wreath looks fabulous hanging on it. Question….did you put a zipper in your pillow cases or use velcro to close them up? Or just sew them shut? They are darling. And, yes….I decorate for Fall first in Sept. and then Halloween at the beginning of Oct. Then replace the Halloween with Thanksgiving treasures. Good luck with the condo rehab this weekend. It’s still so hot down here in Jax. Fall hasn’t shown up yet but I’m sure it’s just around the corner.
Aw, yep!! Love it! Thank you, Kathy. :) No, those covers came with zippers. I bought them on Amazon and they are great because you can just slip them on to give your old pillows a new look! Then take them off and save them for next year (or change out to something else) Still warm around here …for now. Mostly 70’s which I’m very okay with. (I hate cold weather!) xoxo
Beautiful. Just beautiful. Fall is my favorite time of year.
Thank you so much! xo
Love your porch! What a pleasant combination of fall colors. I am not much of an orange fan and your small touches were just right! I also love your cute signs. I downloaded several. They are an inspiration to me. Thanks as always for sharing your talents.
Thank you, Sue! Yes, same! I’m so happy to hear that…truly. xoxo
