A timeless and welcoming fall porch decorated with mums, stacks of heirloom pumpkins, plaid with rustic vintage accents, and the warm glow of candlelight in classic lanterns.
Up until a couple years ago, our porch was something that I would rarely decorate for the seasons. I grew up in a home with expansive porches that my grandpa built by hand. They were one of my very favorite things about our home. This home’s small porch just didn’t seem big enough, so I went almost a decade without doing anything out here.
A couple years ago, our garden produced a bunch of pumpkins and I decided to put a porch together with them and loved it! I have been doing a fall porch ever since.
This year’s porch is a mixture of cozy lanterns, mums in antique buckets, and stacks of pumpkins- some from our garden and some bought locally. I think pumpkins are so cute. Its like they each have their own personality.
I used the antique chair I stole from my mom out here on our porch, draped with a flannel blanket I made. I will share the tutorial for it here on the blog tomorrow.
This old train schedule sign is my latest favorite thrifted find. I can’t decide if I want to keep it out here or hang it in my boys’ room. It is such a fun antique!
I also made this preserved maple leaf wreath. I took some pictures, so I will share the tutorial soon. I love how organic and natural it is. The large scale and extra texture feels so welcoming on our door.
Lets hope I can keep these mums alive longer this year than I did last year.
I am so excited to share 14 more beautiful Fall outdoor spaces as part of our Seasons of Home tour! I know you will find some beautiful inspiration.
