I'm finally able to start jumping on the fall band-wagon when it comes to decor!!It has just been so HOT here that it hasn't felt like fall at all.
I finally dragged out some fall decor a few weeks ago so the front porch could at least fall like it was supposed to be fall. I wasn't brave enough to drag out real pumpkins though because. Hot. They'd become really soft, gooey pumpkins really quick. Not so much the look I'm going for.
I was so excited to get to decorate the new house for fall for the FIRST time. The thing I fell in love with first when we first saw the house was the entry way. I LOVE the staircase & the gorgeous front door entry.
I knew it'd look gorgeous all dressed up for fall.And I was right!!
The blue door, the brick stairs, all the pretty fall colors!!! Make my fall loving heart sing
I wanted something simple but full of fall layers for the front area.
I found that piece of barn wood lying in the garage leftover from a recent project and knew it'd be perfect for a quick sign.
It was a very quick & rough sign- I wanted it to look old & worn so no worries on making it perfect!
My favorite part is the leftover hinges that would never come off anyways.
I have a thing for hardware.
I layered several pieces of worn barn wood in the back and then leaned my quick & easy “blessed” sign at the front.
The wooden shutter & sign are propped up on an old ammo crate I had in my stock pile.
If I couldn't have live pumpkins, I knew I wanted some mums and these didn't disappoint!
They bring all the gorgeous colors to the whole set-up.
I popped a yellow mum into a square basket I had, threw a scrap of linen in & strung a tiny plaid banner I threw together across it.
I drove a nail into one of the pieces of barn wood so it could hold my charm wreath from a few years ago.
The makeshift broom was one of my most favorite DIY projects from our Harry Potter Party we did a few months ago. Check out the full DIY here.
Several more mums line the brick stairs as you're walking up.
The faux pumpkins are from lots of places- I love collecting them
The tiny white one is a Target dollar spot find.
The twine & rope pumpkin was from Big Lots & the glam pumpkin is from Hobby Lobby.
Now for fall weather to decide to come & stay.
This girl would be so happy!!
And maybe, just maybe, I could throw in a few real pumpkins if it would cool down!!
I hope you enjoyed my quick fall porch tour- hopefully I”ll be motivated soon to get the rest of the house glammed up for fall too!!
