Hello, again! I’m back with another blog tour- this time, we have a group of ladies sharing how to decorate a front porch for fall. I don’t do a lot of decorating for the changing seasons, but I do like to change out the décor on the front door.
As you can see, I still have the scroll thingy on the door. I love just attaching different arrangements to it for a quick new look.
Here are the other looks this scroll has received:
- Hydrangea and Seed Packet Wreath
- Fall Decorating Without Using Orange
- Frosty Purple Christmas
- Summer Porch Décor Wreath
This wreath started out as a dusty Christmas wreath found at a thrift store (where else?), complete with raggedy, balding styrofoam berries. I hosed it clean, yanked off the berries, and added rattan balls and a burlap bow. It still looks a little Christmas-y, but I think it also works for fall. Simply add a few ornaments closer to Christmas for a super-quick makeover.
One key to making a room porch look cohesive is to add similar elements throughout the space. I added rattan balls to the bistro table.
And also beside the flower pot.
I brought the look into the flower pot with bits of swirly grapevine salvaged from a wreath. Curly willow branches also add to the natural “woodsy” look. I love the feathery asparagus fern, and of course I had to add a touch of purple with the pansies. I hope they can survive my forgetfulness….
Our front porch is small, so I don’t like to add to much to it.
Plus, I’m lazy and cheap, so I like to decorate as much as possible without spending more money.
Oh, and I have a bonus tip for you- don’t use your car to “trim” your bushes. It does a terrible job and then you have to figure out ways to hide the damage. A rock and some asters just don’t do much to hide the gaping wound, do they? Yeah, I’m a lousy backer-upper. ~sigh~
What is your favorite thing about fall? Or is there another time of year more to your liking?
