Fall Porch Decor

I had the pleasure again this year to decorate my friend's porch for fall. (I decorated for winter last year too here). I barely have a space to decorate at my house so I'm thrilled she lets me have fun and create on her gorgeous porch. It's win win for both of us! Nanette will be filling in with mums and pumpkins soon, so the decor is not complete but I was too excited to not share. 

So much space to work with! I love it!

 The crocks will be filled with mums


 More mums and pumpkins in the wash bin and pretty light up sticks for the olive bucket.



Nate whipped together two of these small tables. He constructed them exactly like Anderson's pallet table, but obviously on a smaller scale.








Have you decorated for fall yet?

  7. I love all those pumpkins and corns. I can't keep pumpkins out b/c squirrels will eat away at them.

    Hi Melissa,
    So happy you came by, because it brought me to you/your site.
    I love your Fall porch photos. I'm looking forward to decorating for the new season after my trip to Colorado this month. I'm hoping the temperatures will be cooler when I come back!
    Have a beautiful weekend,
    Suzanne

  20. How nice you can work out your decorating on your friends porch. I'd sure miss not being able to decorate our front porch. Not a big one but enuf to have some fun with it. You did such a great job. Love all of it. Like that caddy, we might have to make one like that to put fall stuff in. I have lots of Fall decos from years ago, hauled it all over the country with us, keep adding to it much to hubs chagrin.
    The first couple years we had our dog (black lab/border collie) I didn't dare put anything out as he'd get it to chew up all over the yard. He's grown out of that (mostly) now I guess, he'll be 5 in Nov. I still have to watch the faux pumpkins or something he can get in his mouth or I find it all over the yards, guess he figures they're fair game, lol. Love decorating for Fall, the colors are so gorgeous. Happy week

  21. Pretty porch and pretty pillows!
    I like the idea of light up sticks for the bucket. The basket of harvested corn...wonderful touch under the bench.
    Nice to have a friend lend you her porch for decorating.

  22. What a beautiful spread! So naturalistic (love), but still elegant! It's been 96 in CO recently, but today was rainy and only 65 degrees. I'm sure in the mood for a little fall decorating...Thanks for sharing!
