"Fall" on the Porch

Hello everyone!

I've been working on my front porch for a few days now.  I've been trying to give it some color for Fall and use things that I already had on hand.  


I brought out my pumpkins and gourds along with some fall foliage, sticks and hay. My old crate came in handy for holding some of them too.




I hung a basket on my front door and filled it with ornamental grasses.




My rocking chairs are ready, if you want to join me on the porch!


I moved my geraniums to the bottom of the stairs for now.  I may eventually replace them with some yellow mums.  



So, that is my front porch this Fall!  I have been enjoying the amazing weather we've been having here in GA this week.  I wish I could bottle it up and hang on to it forever!  

Thanks for stopping by.

The floor on the porch looks amazing as well. I would love to sit there and sip on a cup of coffee...or hot chocolate

Very pretty! It's been getting chillier in NJ these past few days so I am getting excited about decorating my porch too. I would love a nice large porch like yours to be able to sit. Love the rockers.

Hi rocked for an hour yesterday to benefit Alzheimer's so I think I'll pass on the rocking chair. Your porch looks lovely. Happy fall.

I love what you have done with your porch.

I have a bench on the side of the garage that I am thinking of doing a fall vignette on. I guess that I need to get to the pumpkin patch.

Your porch is lovely! I like how you were able to use the crate too. The only thing I did to my porch was add a fall wreath on the door. You're making me want to decorate it a little more though. :)

Your porch looks amazing - really late this year decorating my front porch, maybe this weekend. It is going to be cooler. I don't do much when it's so hot.
Have a great weekend.

Your porch looks so festive and inviting, Kelly! I haven't done a thing outdoors yet, but I'm hoping to get to it this weekend. I love the arrangement you've hung on your front door!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Your porch looks so wonderful! I wish I could decorate for Fall, but it is just too hot for pumpkins and mums here. I am starting to dream about Christmas decorating though! :)

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

A great porch Kelly! I love yellow mums too! I'm ready to buy a pumpkin. If the weather would just cool off a little more. Pretty front door too.

Looks so pretty, Kelly. I love that piece on your door. When we still lived in our old farmhouse, I used to bring my geraniums in for the winter. And they continued to bloom! I don't do it in our current house (no place for them). It was so nice to have that little taste of summer all year long, though.

Hi Kelly,everything looks so pretty! I love your gorgeous staircase!
