Simple Fall Porch
Taking it easy and creating an oh-so-simple fall porch to carry us through until the holidays!
Hello friends and happy Friday!
Today I’m sharing my very simple fall porch. I didn’t add any pumpkins or mums this year. I have gone all out in years past…
but just felt like keeping it very simple this year. This will carry us through till I’m ready to decorate for the holidays.
Before I get to that though, let me congratulate Pam E. for winning my latest giveaway!!
Stay tuned as I am planning something for the holidays too. :)
So…like I said, SIMPLE!
Not only that, I did a bit more muted colors which I’m really enjoying. More plums, and ivories with only a touch of orange.
And an orange that is more in the form of “rust” colored.
Like these pillow covers on our bench.
You can find the pillow covers, here.
That table in the corner had a jar with branches (perfect for fall) so I just added some of the leftover leaves from the autumn wreath I made recently.
Then I added a “fall-looking” harvest basket filled with faux white pumpkins.
The other side table got a big ceramic white pumpkin.
Looking towards the other side of the porch you can see the “hello” mat I recently repainted.
And our favorite rockers.
You can find the black and white rug, here. And similar “hello” mat, here.
OH, and remember I mentioned that I spray painted our faux ferns??
See it up there? Looks so much better.
The edges of quite a few of them had faded to a blue/green shade.
Much more noticeable than I can capture in the photo above.
But I sprayed them with these two colors. (I went to several stores, this was the closest to what I was looking for…greens were hard to find!)
I used two colors to give them a more realistic look. I couldn’t find links for these in Satin, which is what I used. I would have preferred to use Flat but I had to take what I could get/find!
So much better.
I may come back with a light spray of this color (or whatever I can find close to that) to give it even more of a natural look.
The “Hello Pumpkin” sign I shared on Tuesday.
I added two new pillow covers on these too.
Love them, you can find them, here.
Remember this tiled table I made some time back?? Get all the details right here.
And the “chalkboard”-look sign I made years ago. See how here.
I love the subtle fall touches without it being an “in your face” fall decor if you know what I mean.
Simple, I guess really does describe it best.
But hey, sometimes I love the “in your face” fall decor, just not this year! lol
I picked this flag at our local hardware store because the colors were perfect for my porch this year.
How do you decorate for fall? How about this year?? All our or just a bit?
PIN it to save it!
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! For those of us on the east coast, it’s going to be a mess with Ian remnants making their way up. But so much better than what Florida had (and still has) to endure, for sure! Living on or by the coast is a wonderful thing, but can really be treacherous. Praying for them down there.
The fall theme looks awesome Nancy!
Thank you so much, Aunt Jo! xo
You’re welcome Nancy!!!! xoxo
Your porch looks so inviting. I love the way you changed it up. Yes, Simple is a great word to use. Everything looks clean and refreshing. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. South Florida is in bad shape and so is St. Augustine. Jacksonville survived the wrath of Ian. Hopefully y’all will too. Take care. Get your projects ready. See you next time.
Thank you, Kathy! We are dealing with winds and flooding here today on the coast of VA because of Ian but nothing like Florida has endured. So sad! xo
So different for you, but very elegant and ooh-la-la! I like it. Also, once again your shipping from your Etsy shop was so fast: so fast I thought I would see you standing beside my self-delivered package. Thank you and once again I love my goodies.
Thank you, Marietta! :) xoxo
I have always loved your decorations. And I think sometimes simple is good also. My biggest question and problem I have in Ohio is…don’t you have spiders and bugs and webs that spoil the beauty of the porch? I am very serious. If you do have problems, what do you do to keep it so beautiful? Thank you for sharing your talent.
Thanks so much, Diane! And yes, true! Oh, we do have those!! The truth? Good old-fashioned way…broom! I have to come out and broom around the front door, windows, etc., periodically to keep the crawlies at bay. It seems they are worst this time of year. I always joke with my hubby that we don’t even need to put up Halloween with all the spiders and webs and such! lol xo
Maybe I just go with the flow and incorporate the cobwebs as part of the decor! Thanks for the behind the scene ‘tricks’. 🤫🎃
Yes, exactly!! :)
I don’t decorate for the seasons, but what you did here is lovely and inviting. I’m always a big fan of simplicity.
Thanks, Lizzy! Yes, it’s a lot of work to decorate each season…and sometimes I just don’t feel like doing it! lol! xo
Love your fall porch all done up subtly and beautifully for Autumn.
I did the house in neutral all too this year and left my traditional fall deep jewel tones for
Great idea spray painting your fern back to looking real again. :-)
Thank you, Michele! Oh, I bet yours is just lovely too. :) xoxo
Where can I find the buffalo plaid rug you have under your hello mat?
Hi Gail, you can find it here. I also added it to the post along with the “hello” mat. :)
