Finally, it feels like fall in the northeast! It’s funny how the change in temperature suddenly makes us in the mood to cozy-up our homes for the fall season.
Today, I am sharing my fall front porch decorated in seasonal colors!
Since, fall is such a vibrant season, it only made sense to use orange when decorating my porch.
Every year, I think about possibly going neutral but I always return to colors. In fact, when I bought the door basket, I was heading in the neutral direction.
Then I took a turn and bought colorful mums!
Orange mums and pumpkins really pop against a black door.
Hopefully the mums in the black urns will be fuller and even more colorful over the next few weeks. Though, I might have to move them forward to get a little more light.
The orange mums in the baskets are already blooming beautifully. These simple harvest baskets give some extra texture and help tie in with the neutral door hanging.
This year, I decided to display some mini pumpkins above my door…
Last year, I noticed a few people doing this and I loved the idea. Luckily, I happen to have a little ledge below the window so the mini pumpkins fit perfectly. They might be my favorite part of my front porch decor! It’s amazing how the little things can make such a difference.
Not only are they cute from the outside, but we get to enjoy them from inside too! I smile every time I walk through my foyer now!
The mini pumpkins coordinate with the orange mums.
A couple lanterns add some coziness and will be pretty at night.
Though, I have to remember to switch these candles for battery operated ones for convenience.
A new doormat freshens up the porch and makes it feel welcoming.
After too many years of wear and tear, my old doormat had seen better days. In fact with all the rain, my porch has seen better days as well. A good power washing is definitely in order around here! That’s one reason I clustered my decor closer to the door this year. In previous years, I have spread the plants and pumpkins out a little farther. Always another project to add to the list…
Instead of buying too many fresh pumpkins that I’ll eventually throw out, I mixed a couple faux pumpkins in with the real ones.
Before long, we will be adding more carved pumpkins to the mix. My front porch definitely takes on a new look as Halloween gets closer.
Home sweet home…yes that pretty much sums it up!
