Outdoor Decor: Welcome to Our Fall Porch!

By on September 20, 2012

I had a fun day with my mom today!

After grabbing our first Pumpkin Spice Latte’s of the season, we headed out to Al’s Garden Center. It is such an incredible place to visit and buy plants, year round!

The wreath above, was from a vendor at Aunt Bee’s House though. I just love it.

The one we’ve had the last few years was in desperate need of replacement, and this was perfect.

A bundle of corn stalks for the front entry.

Most of our summer flowers are still doing great and blooming, so we worked with some of the existing colors by doing a mix of purples, greens, yellows, and oranges.

Buying mums with my Mum. (ha, I had to say it.) ūüėČ

I love getting our pumpkins there! $1.49 any size!


Next to the front entry is our porch sitting area.

We have really been enjoying it since it’s mini makeover a few weeks ago.

I think maybe next spring, I will look into a salvage window frame to put between the curtains… just to hide the neighbors roof.

I enjoyed getting out the flannel shirt pillow covers from last year! A mini tutorial can be found here.

I have some red and green ones lined up for Christmas, and another reddish orange one will be added to the fall mix soon.


I bought our first batch of farm fresh apple cider today.

Thank you, EZ Orchards!

All three of us¬†(four if you include Bella) love¬†coming out on the porch to read. I am LOVING the book I just got! Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson- I highly recommend. I have been giggling throughout.

Our little fleur box has some fresh fall flowers in deep purple and yellow.

I love the chippy stool that elevates it to the bottom of the window. When I look out our living room, it looks like a real window box.

When you sit on our porch in the evenings, this is the view. We feel very lucky to enjoy it every day.


I added in a couple more golden mums to the front steps in some galvanized buckets.

And last but not least, I had to share our most recent find: Yesterday I spotted a pair of concrete columns.


The price was great, and I snapped them up. It wasn’t until I was walking away with the price tags that I saw the added detail! Loved it. I’ve been wanting a bird bath or some kind of hardscape in the front yard for awhile, so this is a great, unique addition.

The other one landed a spot in my room at Aunt Bee’s House. (wouldn’t that be nice if all the great finds came in pairs?? Then you wouldn’t have to choose what to let go!)

Do you have your outdoor spaces ready for cooler days?
