Welcome to Our Fall Front Porch!

I am sooooo excited to show y’all how I decorated our front porch for Fall!  I’ve had some Fall decorating ideas floating around in my head for a while now, and it was fun to have it come to life! We don’t have a big porch or anything, but I try to make the most of it and I’m thrilled with how it came out. :)

Decorated Wagon

I got that little wagon a few weeks ago when we went to a city-wide garage sale, and I snagged it right up and knew what I was going to do with it right away.  I envisioned some hay in there, so I got the straw bales at Hobby Lobby. So cute!  And that metallic pumpkin is from Hobby Lobby too and it’s the only fake one.  The rest I got from a local nursery that’s AMAZING!

I stacked some pumpkins to make a pumpkin topiary on top of the big pots I already had.

They just stacked right on top of each other. Me and my mom hand picked the perfect ones so they were even. I considered spray painting them a metallic shade of something, but the orange was just so vibrant and pretty against the house…

Fall Porch

Ack I love it!!

I hung up the garland using command hooks…

So easy and worked like a charm.  I did double up the garland to make it thicker and more substantial, so there is a total of 5 strands of garland up there.  And to connect the strands, I just used floral wire. Easy peasy.

The wreath I had from last year, but I just added some red leaves to it to blend in with the garland.  The wreath was primarily yellow and orange before.

Now just enjoy the rest of the photos. :)

Fall Decor

What do you think?!  Sometimes I walk out of the house just so I can walk back in to check it out.  But I also do that to make sure no one has stole my wagon or pumpkins. ;)

It’s so fun coming home though and walking up to our decorated porch.  I think the Fed-Ex man was even impressed today, and that’s always a good sign. Now, if I could just get the little girl to stop picking up a pumpkin (or 2) on our way in or out of the house, all would be right in the world. :)

What have you done to your outdoor spaces for Fall?  Anything yet? Better hurry and buy your pumpkins!

I’ll be sharing this post at Rhoda’s Door Decor party on Thursday. I’ll also be sharing this post at Tidy Mom’s I’m Lovin’ It Party, Between Naps on the Porch, Sarah’s Outdoor Party and Hooked on Houses Fall Party.

  28. Love the vibrant colors…. very festive. The wagon is so cute! You should add a little scarecrow to it. LOL

  29. Hey, I’m new to the whole blog world and I am just discovering all these wonderful sites. You’re blog is one of my tops and for good reason I LOVE YOUR BLOG! You have such great ideas. Love your front porch it looks awesome. Do you by any chance know what font they used for your “welcome” I would love to tell my local sign shop so I can own one myself. Thanks for all your time you put into sharing to help give me good ideas as well! Happy Fall!

  30. Your entrance is so colorful and welcoming! The wagon is so cute, wish I could find one at a garage sale, great find!


  31. Your porch is just lovely!

  32. What a beautiful and inviting entry way!! So Welcoming!!


  33. Looks Awesome!!! you are soooo talented! :)

  34. I love it! The little wagon is adorable! Its very welcoming!

  35. Hi Decor Chick! I’ve been an avid reader for over a year. That’s why when I received a little blogger award, you are one of the blogs I am passing it on to! It’s on my Rolo Cookies post today. Thanks for all your great ideas and pics!

  36. My entry is so similar to yours that I can picture what mine would look like with an arrangement like yours. Thanks for the inspiration!

  37. great job….looks like something right out of BHG…stand back Martha Stewart!

  38. It looks great Kim. That wagon was a great find. How much fun will that be to seasonally decorate? I love the plant too, perfect colors. Awesome job!

  39. I know it is not specifically part of your fall decor but I love that “welcome” decal on the door! (and the pumpkin topiaries!) Nice Work.

  40. Looks great. Like the door mat, too. You should give your little one some of the fake pumpkins (like at Dollar Tree) before you go in/out the door so her hands will be full and she can’t pick up the real ones; plus, they won’t splat. ;o)

  41. VERY NICE! I LOVEEEE the black door! It makes it really pop! Great job!

  42. Absolutely beautiful!!!! Love the wagon!!

  43. Love the pumpkin topiaries! So cute!

  44. I LOVE it!!! I need to do my porch!

    Thanks for linking up Shaina! I featured your post in my wrap up http://tidymom.net/2011/great-fall-ideas/

  45. Emily Emily Emily………..lol…….sorry, my bad, I was just on Shaina’s site and still had her name on my brain!

  56. Its looks like fall and there is just enough stuff without being to much. Very well done.

  57. Hi Emily,

  58. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my
    apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  59. The porch looks great! What I love is that you took the time to hand pick the pumpkins so that they matched, it was a nice touch!

  60. i love pumpkin pies!

  61. Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger,
    and I was curious about your situation; we have created some nice methods and we are looking to swap methods with others, please shoot me an email if interested.

  62. Appreciation tto my father whoo shsred with me regarding this weblog, this web site is in fact

  63. Wow, amazing blog layout! How lengthy have you been blogging for?
    you make blogging look easy. The full look of your
    website is excellent, let alone the content material!

  64. Do not be afraid to ask for clarifications until you are satisfied
    that you are getting the best. The bureaus make money from the resellers making these corrections.

    Seven years will almost certainly leave you in even worse shape.

  65. Where did you get the door matt?! I absolutely love it.
