Fall Front Porch

Hello again! I hope your week is off to a great start. 
Today I’m sharing our front porch all dressed up of fall. 
But please ignore the wet concrete as I had just watered the
 plants right before deciding to take photos. ugh. 

Once again, I decided to stick to traditional fall colours this year for
our front porch. I think the orange looks sharp against our black doors.

We’ve had these lanterns sitting in  the garage still in the original
IKEA bag for about 7 years now.  They were for a project that never happened
(you know those!), but I’m kinda liking them sitting on the steps this way.
I also used some of them last year for my Halloween mantel annnddd,
I think they are going to look great in the evening when lit up.

For the planters, I used these beautiful kales as the focal point and then filled 
the rest with mums, some gourds and a medium pumpkin. I also used little grass,
some twigs and even some artificial berries from the DS.  Once mixed in there
with the other elements, you can’t even tell that it’s a Dollar Store cheapie….:) 

The entire arrangement cost me less than $25 each.  Not really 
sure if that’s a great deal but considering that smaller arrangements 
sell for $30 or more at nurseries and grocery stores, I was happy. 

ummm, Brody move!  Brody, move! 
Brody come here. ugh…ok just stay there.

If you haven’t met Brody yet, he is our Australian 
Shepherd, also known as Velcro dogs, for obvious 
reasons.  He’s 5 months old and packed with energy! 
  I know I’m bias, but isn’t he the handsomest? 

And at least he coordinates well with the rest of the decor. ha. 

Funny thing about this dog is that he doesn’t like me taking pictures of him using the view
finder but he is ok if I use the screen or live view to take the photo. Love this crazy pup. 

So there you go, our front porch dressed for fall.

I’m off to spend some time with the pup who keeps 
trying to get my attention as I type this last sentence…

Have a great day ! 

much love,

    Your front porch looks great, Lucy! I love the black and orange, especially with your black front door. Our husky always managed to get into my pictures, too, when I would take pictures outside at our old house. She wouldn’t move for anything so I learned to be quick! : )

    absolutely gorgeous and amazing. super envious-see, I tell the boyfriend, a little bump out on each side would make a huge difference! I don’t have room for anything except lining the stairs. wish there was room for something flanking the door! did you do anything to your pumpkins so they will keep, or to keep animals away or anything?

    and your pup is super cute and coordinated. I have 2 gray cats that “go” great with some of my rooms, too.

    The porch looks gorgeous! It’s so colorful and welcoming – love the lanterns. Especially with your little pup in the pictures.
    Note to ‘the cape on the corner’ I overheard a conversation in which a woman was telling her friend she uses Pledge on her pumpkins so they’ll keep longer on her porch.

    Your entrance looks amazing and perfect for a Fall welcome! I love orange it makes such a statement for this season and the brightness of it it’s fabulous! The handsome fellow in between your arrangements looks regal! Hugs,

    Oh, I am loving it all Lucy, the lanterns, the kale added to the mums and pumpkins, it all looks gorgeous. Most of all, your adorable Brody! So cute! I have a puppy the same age, they are a lot of work, but so worth it! :)
