Simply Seasonal … Fall Comes to the Porch

The kids are back to school …

The days are getting shorter …

Football widows are re-uniting …

Mornings are cooler …

Apples are ready for pickin’ …

Pumpkins are almost ripe on the vine …

Scarecrows have awakened from their tri-season slumber …

Yes, Fall is in the air!

September – October – November … hands down my three favorite months of the year.

I love to decorate for Fall even more than I do for Christmas (probably because I’m too pooped to start over after I’ve taken all the Fall stuff down.)

I thought it would be fun to take a trip through the world wide web in search of some fabulous Fall porches and porch decor.

    These are gorgeous. I don’t usually do a lot of fall decorating, even though it is my favorite time of year. But now that I’ve seen all these ideas, I am definitely inspired!

    OH i love this! I love the wheelbarrow with the pumpkins. I always want to decorate at fall but well it gets away from me. The best i do is Christmas and the lights and even then not what I want. I can just live through your pics and pretend they are !

    I really have been wanting to decorate for Fall. It’s still over 100 degree weather over here in AZ. But, I love your fall porch ideas. Fall is my favorite time of year next to Spring! Thank you for following me on Pinterest. I subscribed to you!

    In SW Louisiana, it is still 90+ degrees outside. We are often in skimpy costume for halloween, because it’s too darn hot to wear anything else! But I’m already decking the INside of my house in browns and oranges, trying to pretend it’s fall!! And dreaming of the day I can wear cool boots again.

    I love all of these. I wish my front porch was big enough to have some wooden rockers. I haven’t started decorating for fall just yet but this post gave me tons of inspiration. Btw I love your blog design. It’s totally fitting for your blog!!!

    What great ideas for fall decorating. When I lived in Wisconsin, we always decorated for the fall. But since retiring in Florida three years ago we have not followed our tradition. Your post motivated me to “get up” and “get moving” and welcome fall into our home. Thank you for sharing.

    What lovely porches and what a great idea to put them all together. Since I have zero ability when it comes to decorating these are quite inspirational. I’m a summer person myself and don’t usually look forward to fall and the coming winter, but these porches would certainly make it a lot more appealing.

    I love anything pumpkins so much that I have them ( the decerative ones) in my kitchen all year. I try to buy one every year to add to my collection. Fall is also my favorite time of year, I start to plan out my thanksgiving dinner and christmas dinners.

      Hi Dee,
      How fun to be decorating your new house! We just moved into ours a year ago and I have yet to put anything on our windows except blinds. One of these days … :)

      Hugs & Blessings …

    These are all gorgeous! The weather here is still screaming summer, so I’ll probably wait a couple more weeks to start decorating. Thanks for the inspiration to get started!

    • Lani Padilla says

      It’s still summery here too, Mary, although the mornings are a bit cooler, so I know Fall is close at hand! I can’t wait!

    I love porches! Our current house has a stoop but we are moving in a few months so top on my list is a porch! These are great ideas and lovely pictures. PS I love Fall too…it’s what follows that has me bummed.

    I love the fall decorations. For the first time ever I decorated my porch this summer and will wrapping it up as soon as my flowers die and my pumpkins come in. They are so homey – definitely a look I want at my house. I think I’m going to try painting my pumpkins with glitter or maybe even a color to match or compliment my outside decor.

    Gorgeous and so inspiring. I can’t wait until it cools off a bit. Well, a lot actually. It’s sweltering heat in Kentucky, but hopefully soon it will actually feel like fall and I can begin! This will provide some fantastic ideas and great color palettes.

    Beautiful blog and beautiful post! Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year, but I didn’t get to experience true fall until we moved to Germany. It was breathtaking. I love jacket and cardigan weather and all the colors. In Texas, we just go straight from summer to winter, so decorating to get in the spirit is a great idea!

    Wow! Gorgeous ideas. I love the fall too, I always think of that poem by Robert Frost, Nature’s first green is gold… The colors, the crispness in the air, I just wish I had the energy to put up more decorations. I haven’t started finding my few, but now I might need to go get some more because you have me feeling festive!

    Oooh I love fall, too- however, in Texas, it will still be a while before we get that cool, crisp air! Those porches are beautiful; I especially love the first one! I don’t have a post dedicated to fall decor, but I do show a little of it here:
    Also, I’d love for you to link up any of your older posts that you love this Friday on my blog for a new linkup- Flashback Friday!
    Have a great day!

    What a lovely round-up of fall decor! Since we have our house in storage and we’re living in limbo, I have no idea about fall decor. I guess I’ll be enjoying yours instead. 😉 That being said….I’m walking the fall fence…with warm weather I’m just not ready. And I’m actually working on some coastal posts that I photographed before the ‘move.’ It’s surely warm enough for a day at the beach. 😉
    Hope your week is Extraordinary!!

    Beautiful porches!! Thanks for the round-up. I haven’t started decorating, but I plan to this weekend. I can’t wait!!

  18. Debbie says

    Beautiful porches – I’m looking forward to doing some fall decorating, but it’s still 90+ here in Alabama, so I’m waiting for Oct. 1st when it finally cools down. I think pumpkins would melt out there…
