Fall Front Porch

Wanted to decorate the porch for the company we had over this weekend. I took the pumpkins I had, some galvanized things from the garden and a few extras and made a little fall vignette.


My hubby and kids like to decorate it all scary so I am sure that is coming this weekend. I prefer cute but I stay out of the outside decorating and let them have their fun.
The trick or treat sign is from Country General Store.


Fall pansies are a favorite of mine.


Happy Fall from my SoCal porch.

Love your vignette, love fall's colors! And if you're telling me you have a front porch swing, I am on my way to SoCal and we are going to do some swinging!!! Mary

Great vignette! Looks very welcoming :)

I prefer cute over scary too, but at least it sounds like your family has come up with a good compromise to have a little bit of both.

I love galvanized pieces in decor, and your painted pumpkin is very cute. Have a great afternoon Elaine.

I am definitely going to miss my fall pansies, as I plant them every year. Can't get out to do it this year. Always enjoy their impish little faces!

Elaine, your porch looks festive and inviting. I love that painted gourd. I looked Covina up on the map and see that it a bit of a distance, but might make a fun field trip one day! Ann

What a festive way to greet visitors and trick or treaters! Love the banner!

Michelle said...

So cute. I wish we had a porch to decorate.

Melanie said...

Very pretty! I've never seen that color of pansies before. Here in northern IL, we usually only see pansies in the spring and they're more typically the purple ones.

Happy Fall Elaine!
Love your Fall porch.
I finally got all the chickens in the coop...so no more spraying off the porch. I hope to get some fresh paint on there ...before REALLY COLD weather sets in...and hopefully get something pretty up there!

...have a great wrap up to your week, Pat

Angela said...

Looks great. Love the banner. And ohhh to have a porch swing. There was always one in my life as a kiddo ...at home, at my grandma's ... sweet memories. Maybe one day I'll have a porch that's just right for a swing =)

Your front porch helps me get going in the right direction ( a little late, I might add). Thanks for your comment on my blog. Diane

Your front porch is perfect. I love the mixture especially the galvanized items. Thank you for sharing. Saw you over at 2805. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House which goes live at 8am CST on Monday. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

Peace, Victoria Lavender

Love the painted pumpkin. We did that last year but painted a haunted house and cut out the window parts so that the glow came through there. Easeiest and cooest jack-o-lantern we've ever done! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com
