FALL ON THE FRONT PORCH
I’m in full Autumn color mode this year! NO neutrals on my porch allowed! I’m decorating with saturated color… a profusion of mums and lots of colorful leaves! My front door is welcoming fall and anyone who comes by! When I did this photo shoot it was pouring!!! Pouring buckets! Torrents of rain!!!! But I think it just made the fall colors deeper and brighter… and that is just how I wanted my porch to look!
An Indian Corn Wreath makes such a big statement on the front door! You can make this wreath too! Click HERE for the tutorial!
It’s having a bad hair day… just like me! The rain puffed up the husks!
A leafy garland frames the door and little pumpkins sit in the ledge of the transom!
I filled the porch urns and galvanized buckets with mums, flowering cabbage and pumpkins!
This little chair was my grandmothers. I painted it a chippy black and moved my pumpkin totem to the chair.
One of the best things we (and when I say “we” I mean Bobby) did this fall was to put hooks in the ceiling of the porch so we can hang these lanterns!
I have lit candles in them now, but I’ll replace them with battery operated ones on a timer. I love the little glow they give off at night!
Fall, my very favorite season, will be here and gone in no time! I’m going to enjoy every single second of it!

It all looks fantastic Yvonne, and I love the new blog layout.
I have been anticipating this since yesterday’s post. I would love to know where you purchased your leaf garland. This is so much more realistic than other ones. Have a blessed day!
Hi Barbara! I got the leaf garland at A.C. Moore. It was 60% off!
Thank you so much!
Gorgeous and I love the lanterns.
Love love love that wreath Yvonne…the whole porch looks FALLTASTIC!!
Love it! I love fall and you captured it perfectly on your porch!
Yvonne I would love to be walking up to your front porch to join you for a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Your home is so welcoming!

So pretty and welcoming …
Oh Yvonne when I read the title “Fall on the Porch” i immediately thought “She fell down on her porch I hope it wasn’t on the knees” Then I read more and was so relieved. I enjoy your posts so much ,but at 88 years old my decorating projects have slowed down, but the enjoyment for yours hasn’t. Thank you for your time and sharing. Jere
Gorgeous! Yvonne, have you done a post showing us how to make the apron dish rack?
So beautiful with the vibrant colors of Fall. Love your porch, Kathleen in Az
Your porch is lovely! It’s purring here as well, but it looks like a very bright light bulb is shining through it all.The foliage is really showing off this year!
you have a beautiful porch, so nicely decorated for a gorgeous season! thank you for the opportunity to enter the fabulous pillow drawing!
I might have said this to you in the past – but the photo of your porch with the lovely tartan blanket really warms my heart. That happens to be my family tartan. This is the Buchanan antique blend. So pretty – it makes me want to go abroad and roam the hills of Ireland.
Yvonne, The post on the easiest Christmas decorating will not come up — can you help? I love Fall and Christmas too (food, decor and everything!!!) – follow you all along but am anxious to see the easy Christmas post!! Love it all!! Thanks for the inspiration!
What is the paint brand and color on your front door? It looks perfect for my door! I’m hoping to get mine done before I go back to school…
Love your blog. Keep them coming!
Hi Anne. Our paint color was an accident. We got it at Lowes… Valspar. It was supposed to be Graphite Gray, but it must have gotten mixed wrong. We love the color but we have no idea what it is!
I love your porch, it is so warm and inviting!
Love,Love,Love as usual, I too have some lanterns and I never thought of putting my pillar candles on candlesticks, they needed some height and I did use some candle stick candles, which seem to be brighter than the pillar candles, but thanks for the great idea!
So there is your Stone Gable! Very handsome, indeed.
And a pretty porch too! Love the lanterns!
Beautiful… you have me day dreaming for Fall right now!! Love your front porch – so very warm and inviting!
That was very hard because I loved them all. If I were in more of a Christmas kind of mood I’m sure I would have picked a Christmas pillow. But Fall comes first so I pick the HA-53 pumpkin seed pillow.
I always love your posts & have been following you forever! Fall is my favorite time too & will be using your suggestions immediately! Beautiful as always! Thanks so much for your truely inspiring posts!
