On a recent trip to my sister’s house, we decided to break out her fall decor and create a fall front porch!
For those of you who haven’t seen my sister’s front porch before, it’s an old craftsman bungalow that has a ton of charm and a lot of patina!
Actually, her house is in the neighborhood that we grew up in and has large trees, big sidewalks and quaint homes.
Before we started decorating we did a little planning ,shopping and crafting.
These cute pumpkins were made out of left over fence posts.
Believe it or not, we scored some super cute outdoor pillows at WalMart!
Both were $5.00!
Our decorating vision included corn stalks tied with beautiful ribbon to the front porch posts flanked by mums and pumpkins.
Honestly, in the heart of Oklahoma you would think that it would be easy to find corn stalks, but no!
We even sent out a plea on social media asking where we could find corn stalks?
The most common answer? In a corn field.
We scored big time on these HUGE mums.
They were each $10.00
Here in North Texas these mums would easily have been $25.00 or more!
These comfy rocking chairs are a new addition to the front porch.
My sister plans on painting them white sometime in the future, however for now they fit her fall theme perfectly!
We tied orange bandanas around her summer pillows for a inexpensive fall look.
The purple asters may possibly be my favorite fall flower.
So bright and pretty!
My sister’s fall front porch just yells “It’s fall, come on over and sit for awhile!”.
Honestly, we did spend quite a bit of “sitting” time on this front porch.
In fact, it was hard to do much of anything else.
Until next time….
