I decided to to use traditional fall colors to decorate our porch and the contrast with the black door is making me so happy. I’m also sharing several front porch decor ideas from my talented friends so make sure you
check them out at the end of this post.
I took this photo right after his grooming. Look at those perfect little ears. He wasn’t too happy because we had just gotten home and wanted to go in and greet the rest of the family…lol
I’ve been so inspired by the warm tones of fall this year and decided to embrace them. I bought this little basket at the nursery for $5 and I knew it would look perfect filled with mums and such.
I bought a few pumpkins and gourds also from the nursery and even though I LOVE the look of tons of pumpkins lining the steps, it can get pricey so I set a budget and I didn’t go over it.
It’s funny paying university tuition makes you reconsider your money decisions…lol
I decided I was going to use some of the faux pumpkins that I had from previous years and they look perfect, except when it’s windy and I have to chase after them down the street. Not a good look when you’re wearing pj’s and slippers. lol
I have since brought them in.
I decided to fill the planters with discounted perennials and keep the palm trees and potato vine.
I also used these beautiful pansies which are super hardy once it gets colder.
I meant to keep the tags for all the flowers so I could speak to them by name but I lost the tags. But that pretty fiery plant in the middle was also discounted and it’s perfect for a fall planter, in my opinion. I used my old magnolia wreath but added a couple of little pumpkin picks I got from Michaels. I didn’t even have to use wire I just interlocked it within the wreath. It’s a great way to update wreaths for any season.
I’ve used these same wreaths at Christmas and Summer as well. HERE.
Our home is almost 15 years old and though it’s not old at all, the stairs were builder grade and they’re starting to look pretty rough. I’m hesitant about painted them because I don’t think they go with the look of the house. I’m hoping to save some money to do a little landscaping next spring.
I took this photo a couple of days later, after it had rained because I loved how bright everything looked…
And thought it would be cute to have him wear his yellow raincoat, which I bought this spring . But it’s a little humiliating isn’t it? haha. He’s such a good sport nonetheless.
And usually amazing when taking photos, until he spots a squirrel in a tree…no amount of bribing can get him to look at me. haha. He’s such a joy in our lives this guy.
Well, that’s it for now. Please don’t forget to check out the rest of the beautiful posts below. Thank you so much for stopping by and thanks to my dear friend Krista for putting this together. xo
Today I’m excited to be joining a group of 25 bloggers who are also sharing their fall porch tours today! Hop around to take in all this stunning inspiration…
