Waiting for Fall: Planning an Autumn Porch

In anticipation of fall and cooler weather (please!) I love to plan my porch. Autumn is my favorite time of year to decorate.. the colors are amazing – all the reds, golds, oranges. There are so many ways to add spice and a little harvest love to your home, and what better place to start than your porch, door, or entryway?

Love this porch! The orange pops and makes for a great color contrast. Very inviting.. always makes me wonder what the inside is like..

I love how nature can do a wonderful job decorating for fall all by itself! Using naturals like dried wheat and sticks, corn husks, and grapevine can add a beautiful fall ambiance to any porch..

A cluster of cutely carved pumpkins adds a touch of whimsy to any area – and lit at night? Like a fall wonderland! Not to mention showing off your carving techniques.

A soft seat with a welcoming warm throw is always a nice touch to an outdoor space in chilly weather.

I love this porch! I don’t usually decorate for Halloween, only fall.. but the little crows add just the right amount of “spook” don’t you think?

This is lovely – simple and cozy.. just the way I like it!

I am sure you all have such wonderful ideas for your porches this fall… and I can’t wait to get started on mine! Waiting for those leaves to change and that air to chill a bit more. Happy Autumn ~ soon!

What do you think?
