Happy Tuesday, sweet friends!!! Today, I am joining a wonderful group of blogging friends to bring you our fall porches. This spectacular gathering is being hosted by the very talented Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home. Amber has a gorgeous home decorated with lots of wonderful vintage finds. You will find a list of all of the participants at the bottom of this post. If you are visiting from Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate, welcome!
After decorating my porch for Autumn, I almost wasn’t able to photograph it in time for the tour. We have had scattered showers daily followed by cloudy overcast. In fact, I tried to wait for a sunny day, but the sunshine never appeared. Therefore, I had to go ahead and take photos with the clouds looming overhead.
I placed bright yellow mums in my vintage olive buckets, and perched pumpkins at the base. I will have to let you in on a little secret. This year, I chose to use faux pumpkins outdoors. Last year was our first autumn in this house, and I soon discovered I had visitors who loved to eat my pumpkins. I worked so hard decorating the outside with live pumpkins and gourds only to have some little acorn loving creatures like my pumpkins, too! No matter what I tried, those tiny squirrels would not leave my pumpkins alone. They practically ate them to the ground! So this year, I decided to save my money and opt out of the real thing.
A wreath of fall berries embellished with a bow graces the front door.
Flanking the door are more pumpkins along with a birdcage covered in a fall berry vine.
With the money I saved by not buying real pumpkins, I purchased these pretty metal ones that have flameless candles that light up at night.
I made the garland a few years ago that surrounds the door.
Thank you so much for visiting and for your kind comments. Next up on the tour is, Virginia Sweet Pea. A complete list of all of the participants is listed below. Enjoy your day, dear friends!!!
