I finally, finally got a chance to put this fall porch post together…it’s taken me a while since I posted this sneak peak on Instagram.
I guess life just gets in the way, and the next thing you know it’s October and you’ve almost missed the internet boat on fall decor! If you are on Pinterest at all you know that it’s all Halloween and all Christmas now! Yikes. I’m ok with that though because I’ve just decided to be one of those bloggers that stays on season, if only because I’m always trying to catch up on things, and blogging is no different! Plus I like to be in the moment too…if it’s fall, I’m in fall mode.
Speaking of fall, after our Snowtember episode, we’ve actually had an amazing fall! The temperatures have been warm, the skies sunny and the trees gold and red. It’s gorgeous here and we’re trying to soak up every moment of it! Because it’s been so nice out we are able to enjoy our fall porch and sit out there with a tea and enjoy the sunshine and fall colours.
Come take a look!
Let’s start at the front door! I couldn’t resist posting this picture…I was sitting on the step with the door wide open and I looked back and our kitty was hanging out in the sunshine. Even she loves this part of our home. 🙂
Anyway here is what you see when you come up to our front door. I hung my new fall wreath that I made and love…it looks so pretty against the soft yellow door. Then I added a new rug and a couple of planted mums. Just simple and clean, yet perfectly fall!
And because I can’t put together an autumn porch without pumpkins, I bought a few to line my steps. Then they will do double duty by being our carving pumpkins for Halloween.
But my favourite part of my porch is this little nook off to the side where I put together planters and boxes of fall plants, herbs and squash.
I just really love the look of ornamental kale and gourds together…it’s rustic, colourful and so pretty!
I kept things really simple this year, but I love how it all came together. It makes me feel happy to come up my front steps after being away for the day, to see a pretty piece of autumn on my porch. Sigh. I love fall.
