My front porch is decorated for Fall. Our weather is cooler than it has been, but certainly not “cool” by the standards of most of the United States. For us in Florida, however, we are enjoying a break from the unbearable heat. It is nice to sit out on the porch again, and I am really enjoying my front porch decorated for Fall.

I didn’t bother to take my pots of Sansevieria out of my urns for Fall, I just added Fall leaves and floral picks and some wheat to the pots to give them a touch of Autumn and some color for the season.
I have tried to keep pretty chrysanthemums on the steps, but alas, the combination of the heat and the yucky soil they pot them in, I have lost too many of them in just a few short days, so I decided to take advantage of the great sales at Michael’s and filled a couple of galvanized tubs with an array of faux Fall florals and leaves. Each side of the front steps displays an array of faux pumpkins topped with the tubs of Fall florals. I strung together Sycamore leaves to make garlands for the railings. Adding some Fall floral picks to your collection of pumpkins is an easy way to add a little more interest to a Fall display. The cornucopia on my wreath is overflowing with the fruits of the harvest. For a detailed tutorial on how to create this wreath, you can see it at: Cornucopia Fall Wreath. A Fall leaf garland is easy to make stringing fallen leaves on yarn or string. This was the first time I tried this, and was happy with how they turned out. They would probably be really beautiful up North with pretty colored leaves! Here is how the garlands looked as I was working on them. I thought perhaps they would crumble and fall off the yarn, but they have held up very well in both the rain and the wind.I added a wash to some of my pumpkins to make them look a little more realistic. I was happy with how they turned out!Lots of Sycamore leaves have decided they are going to join the decor on the front porch, even if I sweep them off, they seem to re-appear! The final addition is a plaid Fall throw, just in case those nights get cool enough that I need a wrap! One can dream!
