You remember from an earlier post Updating your Front Porch, the door is now washed with my favorite color, coral. With the change of season, I’ve made a few tweaks, that I think look great with the new door color. Here are my Fall Decor Ideas for the Front Porch .
Fall Decor Ideas for the Front Porch
- Mums or other Fall Flowers
- Pumpkins – white pumpkins are elegant, but my favorite is the Cinderella pumpkin
- Fall Wreath for the Front Door
1. Mums or other Fall Flowers
The door tends toward, shall I say BOLD color. Therefore, I chose the softer shades of green, plum and white to usher in the autumn and fall season on the front porch. These mums had me a “blush”.
2. White Pumpkins
The steel topiaries welcomed white baby boo pumpkins, tucked in and around the succulents that survived and thrived through spring and summer.
I managed to “skinny-in” (a favorite phrase adopted from a dear friend, and Kindergarten Teacher extraordinaire, Miraculous Marsha, (if you’ve ever watched how she works in a classroom full of Ks you would agree with the name)), a wicker rocker! Tom the Great and I have to take turns as there is just room enough for one on my teeny-tiny “mid-west” porch!
The pink petunias that cascaded from the twig basket this summer were replaced with soft blush pink mums and a ruffly decorative kale plant. I think Annalisa the Beautiful’s bunny prefers the kale.
3. Fall Welcome Wreath
I updated the wreath on the door for fall as well. By swapping out my spring-themed “Welcome Friends” sign for a wooden white pumpkin, and exchanging the pink flowers for of a couple of glitter sunflowers, I’ve easily transformed the wreath for fall.
I tried to stick with the softer shades of fall. But, who in the world could blame a life long lover of orange for purchasing a couple of these stunning Celosia?
I hope you’ve enjoyed the close-up look at our Front Porch. Please come back as I will soon be giving a tour of the living room and my master bedroom with their own touches of Autumn!
