Today’s post is all about my porch decor for fall.
I love decorating my porch for fall! I have always enjoyed decorating for the seasons, and this is one of my favorite times to do it. I have found adding some fall colors with mums, marigolds, and pumpkins embraces the oncoming season. I also like to bring out the reds and oranges of the leaves with a few large leaf arrangements.
Seasonal decorating is a fun way to add some spice to your home. It’s also a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
I am a sucker for all things pumpkins, so when I saw these adorable pumpkins at Marshalls, I had to grab them. I think they complement my bed swing well.
Pumpkins are one of the most affordable decorations you can use in your outdoor space. They come in all shapes and sizes, so finding one that fits your decor will be easy. If you want something more unique than the typical round pumpkin, try an oblong shape or even a mini gourd!
Mums are another great way to add color to your porch bed swing for fall! You can plant them in pots on your porch railing or place them in decorative baskets next to your swing.
I have a porch swing that my husband and son made for me a few years ago (check out the DIY). It’s very special to me. I try not to cover it up with too many items, but I like adding some fall touches, such as these pumpkins and throw. I also have a few pumpkins on the front porch, and some fall decorations. I love to decorate for the holidays, so I like to add some touches that will last all season long.
What do you think? Do you love the idea as I do? Are you looking forward to fall and all of the activities it has to offer? I think my favorite part of fall is decorating my porch. I love creating unique ways to decorate it so that it’s not the same old porch from year to year. What are some of your favorite aspects of fall, and what are you planning on doing during this wonderful time of year? Be Well-Omniley
Hi, Y’all! One thing that I had on my wishlist and prayed for in our forever home was to have six exterior columns and a porch. Yes, I was so specific on the number of columns…why? There was a gorgeous home in our previous neighborhood and I adored the six front-facing white exterior columns. So of course I always had the columns and a porch on my wishlist. What’s a Southern Belle without an awesome porch? I have so many memories of being on the porch with my NaNa and I had hopes of sharing long talks with her on my porch. Unfortunately, she passed away before we moved into our current home. I still feel she is with me when I sit on my porch bed swing. I often have thoughts of us fishing in the lake or better yet her fishing and me sitting on the porch, because I’m afraid of snakes.
That’s one of the reasons I make sure my porch bed swing is decorated seasonally, so she can look down and smile. If you guys remember this is the DIY Porch Bed Swing my husband and son made for me two years back and it is still holding strong. If you want more on the DIY it can be found here.
It is my goal to spend a lot of time here this spring and to enjoy a nice glass of wine or one of my favorite bourbons occasionally. I don’t usually spend a lot of time here when summer hits, because the porch swing is lake-facing and typically the snakes are on the move. A story for another day. So on to the spring refresh.
So what updates did I do? I added a fabulous new planter and potted a lemon tree. Now for a little secret…can you believe this tree is fake? I also flipped my rug to the other side and it is giving the porch a new life. This year it doesn’t look like we will have to do anything to the porch swing cushions; they held up well after we repainted the fabric last year.
I hope this brings you all some inspiration to get spring ready! As always thank you for your support it means the world to me. Omniley
