Simple Fall Front Porch

Only 22 days until Thanksgiving and 53 days until Christmas!

Have  you started your Christmas shopping yet or am I the only slow one? Maybe you are already done?! I have started... but just barely :o)

I'm not quite in the Christmas spirit yet... I'm still getting used to fall! I mentioned the other day that I didn't decorate for Halloween and how disappointed I am with myself for that... I had new Halloween goodies and everything.

Oh well... no sense beating that dead horse any longer... I decided to go ahead and decorate my front porch a little bit for fall... better late than never right? This will be good through Thanksgiving.

Fall decorated front porch

My garage is such a mess I can't get to my decorations but I did manage to find a couple of things to create a very simple fall front porch.

I pulled out a pretty fall colored afghan that my grandma made and draped it over my $5 black yard sale bench.


I made the rake display several years ago. It will hang  up but I decided to just prop it up on the bench instead.


This is not my real mailbox but just a decorative one that I filled with some fall flower picks.


I put some branches from my twisted filbert bush in the boots along with a leaf branch.


And wrote a quote on my chalkboard.


"Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower"...


I added a couple of pumpkins... the leaves scattered around are from Mother Nature :o)


And that's it! I actually really like the simple look of it all, what do you think?

Did you decorate for fall?

    Your porch is perfect. I tend to like a simple decor.
    I threw up a few Halloween decorations at around 4:30 Halloween afternoon then took them down at 10 that night.
    I hope to get a Thanksgiving " look" done this week, but it has been to hot here to really be thinking Fall.

  3. I really like your fall porch decor. That little bench will be great for decorating during the different seasons. I did a little fall decorating outside but we had snow, then rain so now everything is drying out before I can pack it away.

  6. I love it! Its so simple, inviting and very festive. Your grandmothers blanket is too beautiful to be outside. You should be cuddled up with it on the couch. As a side note your penmanship is very beautiful. You should do some more arts/crafts that showcase it.

  7. Thank you so much Amanda! I agree about my grandma's blanket but it needs to be washed anyway so I thought it could be outside for awhile first and then I'll wash it, plus is covered on the porch :o)

  8. Lovely decorations, Tania. Your bright afghan makes a real statement and your wellies with the leaves tucked in are the perfect accent. Thanks so much for sharing your decorating with us at Vintage Charm :)
