Fall Front Porch
My Fall Front Porch
I was tickled to be invited by Kendra from Joy in Our Home for a fun Fall Festival Blog Hop. I hope you come along all week and gather some great inspiration for getting your home decked out to celebrate all the fall season has to offer. Come on in and enjoy the tour!The breeze kept blowing the leaves from the sycamore trees onto my walk and stairs, but the crunchy leaves just add to the fall feeling on my porch.
I painted an old Ikea frame a soft brown and added fall florals, leaves and gourds to it.
My husband and I have been enjoying our porch so much since we finished furnishing it this summer and now I have the opportunity to decorate for the holidays! One little secret….my favorite spot is the love seat, because I can stretch out and put my feet up!
My deep blue pots really pop against the orange of the pumpkins.
I am so happy with the blue color we chose for our front door this year and the brown and fall colors.
We will eventually get some cool evenings here in Florida and when we do, it will be nice to have some cozy throws to cuddle under. My little plush footballs are a nod to football season in full swing!
The best times for my hubby and I on the porch are the evenings, when work is over, we can close up our computers, put down our phones, and enjoy the cooler temperatures when the sun has set. My lanterns from Pier One Imports are all aglow with candles that come on automatically every evening at dusk. Even the faux pumpkins in my antique tool box have a special glow under the porch lights. I hope you have someplace as cozy to spend a quiet evening this fall.

I am in LOVE with your front porch and you’ve decorated it beautifully for fall. I can just imagine how nice it is to curl up out there and enjoy the fall evenings!
Thank you so much Jamie! I never dreamed I would have a porch like this and yet here I am enjoying it! Now, bring on the cooler weather!
Very cozy indeed! That love seat is where you’d find me also. The leaves blew in at the perfect time, they really add to the fall feeling. I am in love with the lanterns and bought a few white ones for the summer. My family is hoping that my fondness to lanterns doesn’t grow like my dish fetish!
Thank you Sandra, I do love when I get a chance to settle in on my love seat! I am looking forward to more time out there as the weather cools for us here in Florida! I am loving lanterns, too! I just picked up another one from Walmart last night!
Chloe, I love the orange on your porch because it contrasts so well with your blues. Your porch is beautiful!

Thank You so much! I know we all are ready for those cool fall evenings, aren’t we?
I love blue doors, and you are so right about the fall colors popping against it. Beautiful! Hopefully it’ll start cooling down soon so you can enjoy that gorgeous porch!
Thank you Erin! We finally had a little break in the weather today! Maybe more will be on its way!
I love your ideas: beautiful colors and so festive.
Could you please share the paint color that you used on your door? I love that shade, and I’m looking for something bright and “happy” for my home office.
Thank you so much Carrie, it is Benjamin Moore, Blue Hydrangea. We love that color on our door, too!
