Simple Fall Porch.

I like to keep things simple with Fall decorating and what is more simple and fun than a few pumpkins?
Although I must say, when buying them, I thought for sure I was being scammed.. anyone else find them expensive this year or is it just me? The price is the same everywhere I went so I guess that's what they cost! They are kind of irresistible so that's how they get us!

I also love potted mums and don't mind forking out for those. The yellow ones I picked up are the best ones I've been around. So full and healthy! They were only two for $12 at Kool Breeze.

Here is what I came up with for the front porch.


The black containers were galvanized buckets from the floral studio at a local grocery store. They were getting rid of them for 50 cents a piece. A couple of coats of black spray paint and they are perfect pots!




These photos are reminding me that I still don't have house numbers. 
I also want a nice welcome mat and a wreath. It will come in time!




The weather has been so wonderful that we've enjoyed a couple of evening glasses of wine out here. I was hoping for the same this weekend but it look like lots a rain for the next lifetime few days....

Cross your fingers that the lovely teenagers of our community leave my pumpkins alone! Although, it's entirely possible that I may have been guilty of that crime back in the day... Young and foolish, we were! In my defense, I was just the getaway driver. :)

I'm linking up to the It's Fall Y'all Door Decor Party.

  1. Your porch looks so welcoming. The mums are a great compliment to the green door. I can see myself relaxing in one of those chairs drinking a cup of coffee.

  5. Your front porch decorations look just so inviting! I am especially jealous that you got those great buckets for fifty cents each...you did a great job painting them...they look like they cost thirty times that much. I hope your pumpkins get to stay with you through Halloween at least. I saw your post over at "Southern Hospitality".

  6. Love the combo of yellow flowers with your lovely green door. I envy the porch. I have a concrete slab basically. One day I will dress it up with an outdoor rug and a white railing (if I can talk my husband into it--he doesn't think it will work on our house). One day...

  11. Everything looks just beautiful! Love the fall mums!

    I think I would like to see your door painted black or the color of the yellow pillows. Black would be my first choice and for the address numbers, it might be nice to see those black numbers on the window of the door in lieu of a wreath. It would be a classic, modern asthetic. With all of that black, your flowers and pumpkins would pop. Just a thought:)

  12. I love fall decorating because it's so easy. The pumpkins are no maintenance and the mums are very low maintenance. Unlike the summer decor that wilts and dies. Your porch looks great!

  14. Looks so welcoming! I heard there would be a shortage of good pumpkins this year - hence the price.
