Porch Decor For Fall

I have really scaled back in what I am doing inside and out for fall decor this year. I don’t know, but I think I sort of got burned out by being a new blogger last year.

Back then I was all excited to do decorating for the seasons and sort of went all out. This year it’s much more laid back. And honestly, anything that I put out for fall will have to be put away again and that in itself is a drawback to me.

So I just added a few key fall items to my summer porch and called it a day.

The planters on either side of the door are what I had planted in May. They each have two Electric Lime Coleus with one Purple Fountain Grass plant in the middle. Sort of like a grass sandwich. But you don’t have to eat it.

Gourds that I picked up at the farm market are sitting in my planter box along with a lid to an apple basket.

Normally, I am not a fan of warty things, but I just love these bumpy gourds.

The rocking chairs and pillows have stayed the same.

I have added the clay pumpkin. Because, of course, I didn’t have that out all summer. That would just be silly.

The cornstalks were a huge splurge this year. I have a hard time spending money on something that I could just as easily grab from a nearby cornfield. I mean there are probably 14 bazillion cornstalks in a square mile radius of us. But that would be stealing. So I bought them at the farm market for $5.95 per stalk.

I really do love the look of the cornstalks on the porch pillars though.

along with my vintage 1950’s Structo dump truck.

The scale of the pumpkins is a little too large for this truck, but you’ll just have to imagine they were grown at the nuclear power plant.

Hope you are enjoying your fall. Indian summer has hit Ohio and it should be a wonderful weekend to get out and enjoy the last of the warmth before the snow starts flying.

    Your porch looks amazing. You did a great job for someone who really didn’t want to do it in the first place. LOL!

    I just love your truck. It’s such a great addition.

    Your house is just adorable. Love that porch. The little truck and it’s pumpkins……I feel the same about cornstalks.(Like I would be stealing.)

    Are you going tomorrow. I am going to try to be there early. I hope I run into you.
    And next week-end…..will you be going?
    So much fall goodness going on. Love the temps and the colors and the pumpkins.

    I think it looks great! I would love to see what the all-out looked like. I can’t believe what those cornstalks cost you! I could have made a small fortune if I could charge that out here.

    Your porch is just delightful. I especially like the 1950’s Structo dump truck. Everything is so cozy. Makes me want to join on the front porch.

    I told your BIL that I was wondering where you were yesterday and now I know, you were decorating your porch. It is so cute and inviting – Nice Job!!!

    Looks great the way it is. If you scaled down its still beautiful. And as I am sure everyone will tell you, that truck is fantastic! I also made myself sick with debating on paying $6 for 3 cornstalks (that’s $18 worth of flea-market money that’s going to be gone on the day after Thanksgiving!) but in the end, the porch turned out really nice so it was worth it.

    I did the same thing last year and went ALL OUT with Fall and Halloween so I would have those fabulous photos for my blog. Scaled back and am enjoying a little more simplicity this year. And that is really okay! By the way, I love the toy truck filled with tiny punkins…too cute!

    Your porch is just beautiful, Pam! It is so welcoming, I would love to sit out there and visit with you! Love the pumpkins in the truck…I’ll have to visit the power plant and get a few for my truck, too lol!

    I adore your home!!! The style is so country and beautiful!! I used to plant coleus and purple grass all the time. Love that old truck.
    You mean you couldn’t knock on some old farmer’s door and ask for some corn? Lol!

  10. says

    Oh I love it…just the right amount! Thank you for giving me the idea with the old truck…I’m going to get Mr.CC’s out and play with it…well really decorate with it:)

    I think the clincher for your pretty porch is the little metal truck filled with mini pumpkins! So adorable, Pam. I’ll talk to ya soon. ~ Sue

    Thank you for visiting and following Red Rose Alley. I love your front Fall porch, and the orange mums are beautiful. The truck with the pumpkins are so cute, and adds a special touch. I will be back to visit with you often, and I hope you have a fun Fall weekend.

    Very cute, Pam! I agree, the corn stalks look perfect on the pillars. The mum, gourds and pumpkins add a pop of fall color. And those 2 black rockers look spectacular on your porch! And they go well with the Halloween theme, too. :-)
