My Fall Decorations on the Front Porch

| | | | |
Most of you are probably way ahead of me and have had your outdoor Fall decorations put out for quite a while.  I just recently completed decorating my front porch and am finally ready to share it.  It really took me a long time to get my Fall decorating mojo on this year.  I had planned to get it all done over Labor Day weekend, but it’s so hard to be inspired to decorate for Fall when it’s 90+ degrees outside!

But, we finally had some cooler days and even cooler nights and that really revs my Fall engine, especially when it comes to decorating the front porch.  Knowing that I had a group coming to go shopping for Furniture Market samples in High Point was a big incentive too!
I was so tickled when I found this outdoor flag.  I’ve been looking everywhere for a cute one for Fall.

I hope it helps to make you feel welcome when you approach the house.

Fall front porch

My pumpkin wreath has seen many a Fall season on my front door.  Every year I think it will be its last, but I spruced it up and here she is once again.

My front porch is long and narrow.  Plus it is surrounded by railing and shrubbery.  It makes it impossible to get a shot of the whole thing that isn’t obscured by the railing, even with a wide angle lens.  So I’ll show you one end at a time.

To the left of the front door, sits an urn with the grapevine pumpkin that I added this year.

And here’s the little sitting area off to the right.

Totally off topic, but want to know a little secret about me?  I have trouble with my left and right.  I know which is which, but I have to stop and think which hand I write with – that would be my left.  Can’t tell you how many times I’ve given people the wrong directions!

I would sure love it if you’d come set a spell!

I just had to show you a picture of it at night so that you see the grapevine pumpkin lit with its orange lights.

  9. Suzy, your wreath looks great on your door. My wreath is seeing another year, too! Love the lighted pumpkin in the urn, and I may have to steal your idea if I can work up the courage to take the sweet potato plants out of mine. Can’t wait to meet you this weekend.

  11. This is so welcoming and pretty Suzy! I love the fabric on your chair pillows and the grapevine pumpkin is perfect. Have a good time at the conference this weekend…you have worked so hard!

  12. Have trouble giving directions?…and maybe navigating! Really!! Remember the time we headed out for a weekend in MB, got so lost we had to turn around and come back to Greensboro and start over!!! And we weren’t even “seniors” then! Thanks goodness for GPSs!!!
    Loved your porch…it IS so welcoming!

  13. Gorgeous fall decor around the house, pretty Suzy!! Yes, I love the cute flag too and all those pumpkins and mums outside to greet us! Great porch!! I am not good at the navigation thing, lol..I get lost easily and never seem to get anywhere the first takes me usually three X’s..unless it’s like around the corner, LOL!! Take the plunge with the fridge, it’s so practical with the freezer in the bottom, you can see immediatelly what you have and don’t! Thank you for your visit and big hugs,

  14. Your porch looks great — so inviting! I have that left/right problem, too. I think I was to be left handed; but I write with my right — screwed my whole brain up. Sally

    Your porch is gorgeous, Suzy! Love your pretty patterned pillows in the sitting area, too!

  16. As someone who got to see this fall front porch in person, I can attest that it is definitely welcoming. I thought the entire vignette was gorgeous, and so festive.

    And remember, Suzy, Left is the one that makes the L. A college friend always had to remember that way!

  22. Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) says:

    I think your wreath looks great and it should be good for more years! My daughter has the same right/left problem as you do, and she also has the talented eye for color and styling, so maybe those things go together! Your porch is very welcoming. I would sit and visit gladly. Linda
