Our Fall Front Porch

Pin It!
Don't you just love when you open a seasonal bin full of Fall "stuff," only to find a forgotten bag from "Michael's" containing garland that you scooped up after the season last year for 75% off?!  I sure do!


Thanks to that forgotten purchase, our front entry got a colorful Fall addition this year!  Of course, I couldn't stop there ...


I had to add in our pumpkin topiaries (that take less than 10 minutes to make) ... they've become part of our Fall family, as I keep bringing them back year after year.  



It wouldn't be Fall with a few mums and scattered pumpkins now would it?  And, since this wobbly $8 ladderback chair would undoubtedly collapse if I tried to sit on it, I decided to bring it out here to be part of this simple Fall vignette:


Soon, little trick-or-treaters will be ringing the doorbell (hope they don't attempt to sit on the wobbly chair ... the trick will be on them ... oops)!


And, while I love real pumpkins, I'm liking our faux ones, since they'll last all season (annnd, can't get squished in the road if a Halloween prankster decides to try and be funny)! 


Of course, I had to add one of my crazy mesh wreaths for the season ...



which, for a few weeks, has been replaced with a Halloween wreath I made ... gotta have mesh ... and LOTS of it!



Love the garland lit up in the evening!


Oh, and my apologies to our corn stalks ... I had every intention of adding Fall bows to them, BUT, when I went to do so, two large lizards (which, to me, translates to huge dinosaurs) jumped out of one of them, thus, preventing me from wanting to get too close to them ever again (ha).  Maybe next year! 




Thanks so much for visiting our Fall front porch!  



And, thanks to the gals who invited me to be part of a fun "Fall Porch" tour, where 24 other bloggers and I  are sharing our seasonal entries!


Be sure and visit the other gals ... you're sure to be inspired!!

Becca, it's perfect! I love all of it, but I have to say I'm an especially big fan of the mesh too! :)

Christy Our Southern Home said...

Becca, I just love your porch! The pumpkin topiary in the urns is just gorgeous! What a warm way to welcome friends and family!

Laura @ Top This Top That said...

oh you big whimp! it's just a lizard. :) I am afraid you take the crown in the wreath category. Beautiful! I just love everything you do!

Brandi said...

Looks beautiful!!!!!

Judy said...

I love it all! And I know what you mean by those happy surprises when you open those bins...I found some things this year I forgot I bought last year!

I always think of you when I see the mesh in stores, you make such pretty wreaths.

And yes, I HATE those lizards too...a baby one was in my bathroom the other night and when I yelled for hubby it scooted out into our bedroom...now i'm constantly looking for it!!!

I love your fall porch! It's always fun when you find that stray bag from Michael's isn't it?

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Great minds think alike. I have a chair on mine, too.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Becca! Love your pumpkin topiaries. I do that, too, buy something on clearance and forget about it by the time it rolls around the next year.

Oh my Becca, I love your wreath and your porch is so beautiful. Great decor. Hugs, Marty

Pat said...

Beautiful Fall porch Becca. Loving the chair. The wreath is amazing.

Linda Goudelock said...

Your entry is so lovely and inviting!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Ok-I have you beat! There was a small snake on the table on our deck this weekend, right where I was going to do some "fluffing" before taking photos! Yikes! I shot some wasp spray at it and it shimmied away! Your porch is beautiful and I keep intending to make those pumpkin topiaries. Oh well, maybe I'll find a deal on the pumpkins like you did on your garland!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

BEAUTIFUL my friend!! Love the wreath...love the pumpkin topiaries...and love the chair, what a nice touch to your front porch! Let's just say I love it all!!

jackie collins said...

Love your porch and especially the wreath. I would love to make one but since I am not very crafty, it looks too complicated for me. I pinned it to my pinterest board, so maybe someday I will give it a try!

Suzy Handgraaf said...

Oooh - I just love it Becca! Your mesh wreaths are to die for and I love the pumpkin topiaries too. I think this just might be the last year that I invest in so many real pumpkins. The faux ones have gotten so much better looking so why spend all that money for something that is so temporary. Great job on your porch!

Carol said...

Love, love, love it, Becca! It is so fun and festive! Your wreaths are fantastic. Don't blame you about the cornstalks and lizards. Lizards, to me, are pretty much "wanna-be" snakes & I steer clear of both!

Barb @ The Everyday Home said...

I will not let my boys come around you because they take the lizards and wear them as earrings. LOL (I don't like them either btw) Your mesh wreath is one of the prettiest that I have EVER seen. I love that it has so many layers and layers. The garland added the perfect finishing touch. So pretty, pretty - but I would not have expected anything less from my sweet Becca. Glad you and your porch could come out to play with the rest of us. xxoo

LISA C. PARSONS said...

It's beautiful and I love the black door! Mine is stained brown! oh well, it matches our home.

LOL about the lizards they scare me to death and I have had one on the front porch and one on the back patio and they get me everytime. I do not sit out long bc I fear them!!!!

Lauren TheEndearingHome said...

Beautiful! Just wondering, how do you hang the garland and corn stalks? I have always wanted to hang things up on my porch, but I have no idea how to get them up there to stay!
