Fall Porch Tour

Amazingly, our flowers survived most of the brutal summer heat only because September brought a ton of rain. Today I’m showing them off for a fall porch tour, as I join a fabulous group of bloggers sharing their fall porches and patios. Whether I’m your first stop, or you’re joining me from White Arrows Home  on the blog tour, I’m thrilled to have you here.

It doesn’t take long to decorate a tiny porch, which is almost big enough for two people to stand on. Well sort of, but that didn’t stop me from squeezing in a few pumpkins.

My plan of going all monochromatic with the pumpkin decor didn’t happen this year. I was so overwhelmed with the varieties of pumpkins, that I ended up with a round-up of the ones I liked best. I guess that’s the way it should be.

Big pumpkins in orange and gray with flowers in the background.

 

Every year I pick a favorite pumpkin and this year the pale yellow pumpkin was the big winner with the mini stripped hybrid ones coming in a close second.

Stacked pumpkins and vines create a cozy porch vignette.

 

I couldn’t decide on one color for flowers either. At the beginning of summer I planted lots of impatiens going for a splash of color. Coleus and hostas are also in the mix because I love their interesting green leaves.

Being able to mix summer flowers with mums maybe a first for us. It must be true that great things happen in nature when summer meets fall.

My eucalyptus wreath has now moved to the front door. Doesn’t it look great with those gray pumpkins? They are almost the same color. Love it when things like that happen. For details on how I made it, click on Simple Eucalyptus Wreath.

Just for fun, I saved one yellow mum tucking it between the urn and front door for a little pop of color that everyone can see coming and going.

Finishing up the tour is my handsome lantern which is a nice balance to the urn holding ivy. I usually don’t put accessories like this outside because there is little protection from the elements, but I figured short term will be alright.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, there’s more fall porch and patio inspiration only a click away.

      I think it was more luck than a green thumb with the flowers, but thank you Shannon. So happy to be on the tour with you! Happy Fall!

    Michelle,
    Your front door is stunning. All of the pumpkins and garden flowers make your entry so inviting. Footed urns filled with ivy always make me smile. Beautifully done!

    Happy Fall,
    Judith

      Thank you Heather! The mums are getting lots of rain today so hopefully they will last a little longer. Great touring with you!
