I come from a long line of porch sitters.
There’s no better place to watch the world on an early autumn afternoon, a cup of cider in one hand and a good book in the other.
Now that fall weather is finally here in the deep south, I’m delighted to welcome you to my front porch.
I really like to keep my porch decor simple: a few pumpkins, pansies, mums and gourds and not much more.
That leaves more time for napping and reading and chatting with good friends like you.
I hope you’ll stay awhile, but I also want you to check out my how my blogging friends have decorated their porches for fall. So, be sure to click over to the other fall front porch tours when you finish here with mine. There’s a full list at the end of this post of 25 bloggers who are showcasing their fall porches this week.
Nothing quite says fall mums. And the yellow ones are my favorites.
You can never have too many pumpkins or gourds or ornamental cabbages and kale in your fall decor.
And pansies are always a sign of fall.
I love them planted around cinderella pumpkins.
And I’m definitely not a traditionalist when it comes to pumpkins. I love the dusty blue ones, the bumpy ones and gnarly ones. The “uglier” they are, the prettier they are in my eyes.
A simple lantern fliled with mini pumpkins provides a nice pop of color at the front door.
So does an easy handmade wreath, adorned with faux mums.
Don’t ask me what my favorite part of fall is. I’m not sure I could answer.
It might be the pumpkin-flavored treats or candy corn snacks.
It might be the pumpkins and gourds and flowers and apples.
Or cooler days and brisk nights when you break out a blanket and a piping hot beverage.
Or maybe I love all that fall is and all that it represents.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my simple fall decorating ideas for the front porch. Be sure to check out the other fall porch tour participants for lots more porch decorating ideas.
