My Porch for the Fall Season


I always love to decorate my front door for the Fall Season. The colors all around me inspire me to have a beautiful welcoming entrance--it is the first thing my guests see prior to entering my home, and I like it to make a simple, but elegant statement. I uploaded the pictures I took of my front porch, dining area, and mantle. Enjoy!


White pumpkins flank the entrance. I sprayed them white (I could not find real white ones!)


My son and I went to get some branches from a pile on the side of the road, and then I hot glued a few fall leaves here and there to make it pretty.


Our house does not have outdoor lamps, and I thought a lantern by the door would do the trick. I bought a battery operated candle (it flickers like the real thing!), and I turn it on when I know guests are coming.



The black wooden cat merges my fall decorations with Halloween just beautifully!




Raffia and fake fall leaves dress up my cute white pumpkins!




I spray painted these unfinished candle holders in a flat white and placed small pumpkins on them. Very simple but so unexpected!


I wanted to make topiaries like these ones since last year, and this year I was able to work on this. Loooove them on my mantle. The pumpkins are from Michael s,  the pots from Joann, and the leaves, corn husks, berries, etc. I just had from previous years.
