Fall Front Porch

Happy Monday, sweet friends! The temperatures are finally getting cooler, and that has me ready to adorn the outside of my home with touches of fall. I love to decorate for autumn as much as I do Christmas.  This year, I have been really busy working on the new house. Therefore, my decorations are simple, but welcome the beautiful season that abounds.

Yellow mums are added to my antique urns. Mums are the perfect fall touch. They come in so many beautiful colors and can make such a pretty statement.

Antique European olive buckets filled with faux pumpkins and autumn foliage flank the sides of the front door.  Pretty fall ribbon tied on each handle adds another splash of color.


I have had these blue and white pots for years, and they were the perfect containers to hold a couple of more mums.

 Last year’s fall wreath is updated with a new bow that ties back to the ribbon on the olive buckets.


Pumpkins are grouped and placed throughout the front flower beds. They are an easy way to add more fall color to the front of the house.



I hope that you are enjoying this glorious fall season.  Check back Thursday, because I have a pretty fall tablescape to share with you. Happy fall, sweet friends!!!

    • Thank you, Carol, for the sweet comment. The blue front door and shutters are one of the first things that attracted me to this house. It is finally starting to cool down here. It is supposed to get down to 29 tonight. We seem to go from one extreme to the other. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Fall!
