This year there is a snowstorm of pumpkins on my fall front porch! This space is usually filled with saturated colors of the season but this year I found the most beautiful white and green pumpkins at the local farm stand and was inspired to create a fall front porch “white-out”!
Every season I try to stretch my creativity and think up a different look for the front door and porch! This year the white flat Boer pumpkins at a local Amish stand nearby were just so pretty I could not resist bringing home several. Especially when they were four dollars each!
Pumpkins are grown here in Lancaster county and we don’t mind “not so perfect” pumpkins that are leftover for the locals. I think those little nicks and scars add to the story of each pumpkin! Not unlike me!
Did you know Boer pumpkins have very bright orange flesh and a delicious, distinct pumpkin taste perfect for pies! This year I’ll be cooking with one or two of them! Oh, yum!
Both sides of the porch are lined with white and green pumpkins and white mums.
This handsome green pumpkin with an orange blush is called Fairytale. Don’t you love that name? I think our resident Fairytale looks like one the Grimm’s Brother might have written about!!!
A porch rocker was pulled up closer to the front door to become part of the decor! I really love to add a chair near the front door when I’m decorating for fall. I don’t do this any other time of year. A chair, or a rocker this season, is a great place to add for a throw and perch a pumpkin!
The right side of the porch has pumpkins and mums too! I put the mums in one of my favorite square baskets! And I added the white pottery containers that I use all over my home to the mix!
Another Fairytale pumpkin rests next to the basket of mums. The green pumpkin above it is really a blue pumpkin that pretends to be green. It’s called a Kabocha. Another great pumpkin choice to use in fall recipes!
Decorating the porch at StoneGable is one of my favorite things to do!
I hope I have inspired you to try to decorate your home in a new way this fall!
