Easy Fall Porch Decor

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my fall porch decor this year. I love decorating for the seasons, and fall is one of my favorites. There’s something so cozy and inviting about the warm colors, the crisp air, and the festive mood.

This year, I decided to use ginger jars and real pumpkin topiary as the main elements for my porch. I think they add a touch of elegance and charm to the rustic vibe of fall.

Ginger jars are one of my favorite accessories for any season, but they look stunning in the fall. Ginger jars are ceramic or porcelain jars that have a distinctive shape and a blue-and-white pattern. They originated in China and were used to store spices, but now they are popular as decorative items.

They add a touch of elegance and color to the porch, and they contrast nicely with the natural elements. I found these blue and white ones at the late Tuesday Morning, and I think they are perfect for the fall.

SIMILAR ITEMS TO RECREATE THIS LOOK

To create the pumpkin topiary, I used real pumpkins that I bought from our nearby nursery. I stacked them on top of each other, and then I added some moss around the base of each pumpkin to make it look more festive. I love how it turned out, and it’s a great way to add height and interest to the porch.

I also added some other fall touches, like wreaths on the door, real and fake pumpkins, and some mums. I think they make the porch feel more warm and welcoming, and they create a nice ambiance at night.

STYLING FAKE PLANTS AN EASY DIY

STYLING FAKE PLANTS AN EASY DIY

 

YOUR GUIDE TO STYLING FAKE PLANTS

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to jazz up fake plants. Whether indoor or outdoor your neighbors and friends will definitely envy your green thumb.

What She’s Wearing

 

If you ever visit my home, you will know who primarily has the green thumb. Yes, you guessed it right, my husband. I for one was not prepared for the amount of wildlife activity that occurs when you are surrounded by water and the woods.  I have seen my fair share of snakes; therefore during the spring and summer months, I leave the gardening to my husband. This year I still wanted plants on my porches; I have the great idea of trying out fake plants. So here’s my take on styling fake plants.

Plant(s). The first step is picking your plant(s). I have wanted lemon trees for a while. We have a few real ones in the yard, but I think the yellow looks perfect against my chinoiserie planters so I opted for lemon trees. This tutorial will work for any fake plant.

Planter(s). I am partial to any chinoiserie planter or anything blue and white. So have your pick. The perfect planter really makes the project pop. The best places to get planters at a great price are Tuesday Morning, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, and Marshalls.

Potting Soil. You can choose any soil you like here. Remember, if you are potting a fake plant, it doesn’t need to be filled with fertilizer. I used some of my husband’s bulk gardening soil.

Moss. This moss definitely makes the plant look even more realistic. The lemon trees used in this tutorial came with moss. I also added some additional moss I picked up from Hobby Lobby.

Now depending on the number of plants you are potting, this project takes less than 5 minutes per plant. The first thing I do is make a flat base in the planter for the plant to sit on. These particular planters had grooves in the bottom for draining, so I added a layer of soil on the bottom to make my plants sit flush. I then secured the plant in its position by adding soil around it. From there, I fill the planter will soil as I would planting a real plant. 

Last but definitely not less, I added moss. Normally when planting a real plant, I use moss to hold the moisture in so I don’t have to water as much. Now if you decide to try this, please let me know. Your secret will be safe with me! Omniley.
