Fall Front Porch Beauty

Loving My Fall Front Porch

In the quest for a beautiful Fall front porch, I decided it was time to make my annual trek in search of the perfect pumpkins. In years past, our family would all venture to the local pumpkin patch and each child would choose their pumpkin. Sadly, this year no one wanted to pick a pumpkin…I knew the day would come when they felt that they had outgrown that family tradition. So alone and a little heavy-hearted, I ended up picking out some pumpkins at Kroger. Not very romantic or sentimental, but it got the job done!

Last year, I created some “pumpkin topiaries” and I loved them so much, I knew I had to do them again. Using my planters from the summer, I simply stacked the pumpkins. You need to try to get the short, fat pumpkins for the bottom so that the top pumpkin will sit on it and be steady. You can stack them three high, which is what I did last year, using one orange, one white and one green.

For my front door, I chose to use a flower arrangement instead of the traditional wreath. I love the way it looks. The colors are vibrant and the fullness of the flowers looks great on the door.

 With the flowers and the topiaries, here is the result…

Now for the front porch, you remember that I have my wicker settee that got a makeover back in the summer. I added to that, my stenciled burlap pillows and got this…

To create a more Fall look, I added some little pumpkins and gourds that I got at Walmart for $.97 each and some Indian corn. I also had this old cornucopia that I’ve had for years!

For the doors, I went out on a limb…What do you think?

It’s a covered porch, so everything is somewhat protected from the elements. I like the overall look. I think the candles are a fun alternative to your typical door decor, plus I like that it varies from the front door. The ribbon used on the candles and the planters have a touch of red in them, which bounce off the red pillows.
