Fall Front Porch - Embracing the Colors of the Season!

Although we don't use our front door very often,
I love to decorate the porch for each season.

This fall, I added a ton of color!

The boots and sunflowers are basically a prop for the photo shoot.  Not realistic to keep them out there when my crazy golden retriever runs around stealing things all the time.  Plus the boots will get all wet inside with the upcoming weekend forecast...ugh...I guess I will be wearing them!

Front Porch Decor

I never really know what direction I will go in.  In fact, I had planned to use a wheat wreath and some lanterns...but then that never happened.

I did make sure I used my black urns though.

I couldn't find a wheat wreath I liked (for a good price) and I don't have the skills to make one myself, so I went with a wreath I bought on sale at the end of the season last year.

I love the bright pop of color against the black door!

And speaking of color...
Yellow mums for fall

I took a chance with my not-so-green-thumb and bought some mums that hadn't fully bloomed.  I figured if all goes well (I don't kill them), they will slowly bloom during the month of October and be big and full and colorful for Halloween!

Fall Decorating Ideas for Front Porch
I love the way they look in the urns 
and the yellow flowers are really starting to stand out from far away!

Hopefully, the weather will stay chilly for the next few weeks so the pumpkins don't rot and the mums don't droop.  I also have to keep the deer away from those mums.  Crazy country living...

And although the boots were fun to add for pictures, 
this is how my porch really looks everyday...

Plaid Boots - mine are old but these boots are cute!  
Black Urns - I think mine were from Home Depot.
Leaf Wreath - (old) but this wreath has a similar look.
Trellis Door Mat - Old also but I might end up replacing it with this door mat.

I'd love for you to follow along so you don't miss a post!

  4. Looks great, Shelley! Love the boots, even if they are just for the picture ;) I hope your mums do well this year. Mine are already a bit dried out. I am sure the rain will help.

  9. I love little touch with the wellie-planters/vases :) But I agree, better to wear them, than let them be stolen by fluffy thief ;) Your mums are gorgeous- so big !
    I would love it if you share your front porch with my fall themed party-Big Autumn Bash:

  10. Your porch is so pretty! I love it when the color comes from mums and pumpkins. :)

    My mums are just now starting to bloom.

  11. Oh, Shelley, I think your front porch is so pretty -- with or without the cute boots! The mums are gorgeous. I'm hoping our Costco has gotten in more of their nice big mums, so I can get a couple this week. They had them a few weeks ago when it was still way too hot. No deer around here, just geckos, roadrunners & the occasional coyote!

  13. Love your front presentation! The boots are a cute addition even if temporary! The yellow mums look fabulous in those planters -just keep them watered and they'll do great! I think the wreath looks great- the combo with the orange pumpkins and yellow mums makes for a very eye catching look!

  14. It all looks so festive and pretty. Adore the wreath on your front door - - love how it Pops!

  15. I love your front door area all decked out for Fall! It's classic and colorful. I don't know if you'll ever find a wheat wreath that is affordable. Wheat is expensive! I happen to have some leftover from years ago, thankfully. I went to buy some more, but then changed my mind when I saw how expensive it was for a tiny bunch. Maybe faux wheat would hold up better outside anyway.

  18. The boots are so cute, but be glad you didn't leave them out there. I left a darling plaid pair out on my porch last Christmas and they got sun faded. I wore them now and then and now I can't. I'll probably spray paint them and reuse them. The yellow Mums really do pop against the black urns, beautiful! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

  19. I love the books! I would usually just think of them as spring decor. I think you should keep them out! Also, love the black front door :) Lindi @ www.lovecreatecelebrate.com
