Fall Front Porch

I finally got around to taking pictures of our front porch this week. There for a while I was waiting to go to the pumpkin patch to finish off the porch. I finally went a few weeks ago, but am just now getting around to taking pictures. There has been a lot going on. But, better late then never right?

So without further adieu, the porch.

I had been dying to find some cinderella pumpkins and finally scored some at the patch this year. These three beauties greet you when you walk up the steps!

Got some pretty mums and pumpkins on the right side of the porch. The mum on the  far right is struggling a bit… I bought it not really bloomed in hopes that it would last longer. Given my black thumb, I think I’m not doing a good job of watering and it may or may not be dying. Oh well, you win some you lose some!

I bought some hay bales from JoAnns and added some gourds, mums and pumpkins all around on the left side of the porch. The burlap plant holders I scored from Pick Your Plum for super cheap!

And just like my fall mantel this year, I didn’t actually fully make my wreath on the front door. I bought the base at Home Goods.

But I added the white pumpkin, mini corn on the cobs and feathery filler. So semi-handmade.

And here’s a view of the entire porch.

I wish we didn’t have that storm door. The glare isn’t very pretty.

I may or may not have gone a little overboard with the pumpkins. But, my excuse is that it’s my first year to have a real front porch so I went all out!

What is your front porch like? Did you go overboard like me, or did you keep it simple?

    We JUST got our house… pretty much a month ago today! That meant that while I was very enthusiastic about decorating for fall, it mostly got pushed back for other things like a dining room table. Pumpkins v. table wasn’t a fair fight. I look forward to next year when I can go overboard with fall decorations!

    I’m thinking about picking up some fake pumpkins and gourds 80% at a craft store after Halloween so I don’t break the bank.

      I agree… dining room furniture is probably more important than pumpkins. 😉 And I think stocking up this year for next year is a GREAT idea!!
