Deciding on the Porch Decor

Now that we’ve had some chilly days here and there, it’s about time I started thinking about my front porch decor.

Here is how my porch looked two years ago, because apparently I never took a picture last year!

And the year before that…

That little white sign is from when we were “spooked”.  You can read about that HERE.

Anyway, this year I am thinking about hanging a wreath on the door…

Maybe something like this…

Curious Country

I think it would really stand out against the black door.  Also, I plan to use the urns I bought this year…

Probably, I will refill them with either pumpkins or mums.  Even though this picture was taken in the spring, the flowers are still alive!  Shocking since I have such a black thumb!  I will also add a few more mums around and possibly a lantern or two.

Pottery Barn

So that’s my plan!  And now that I am finished with my school event obligations, I can get decorating!

What are your plans for your front door/porch?

    Love your decorating plans. I have been toying with the idea of adding lanterns outside for awhile too. Keep up posted!!!!

    I love your ideas. Have you ever seen the lanterns with mini pumpkins inside them? So cute! I don't have a porch in our rental πŸ™

    Great Fall decorating ideas! I haven't even thought about decorating for Fall because it's been so hot! But today is much cooler, so I may be doing the same thing today πŸ™‚

    I think whatever you do with your front porch area will be pretty, because you have such a lovely backdrop with the door and the lovely trim. I've put a few things out but still waiting for it to get cool enough to buy some mums. Doggone Costco already has their huge and very inexpensive mums out in our local store, but it really is still too hot. Hopefully, they will get another shipment a bit later.
