I don’t decorate for every season or holiday. I typically just change things up for spring, fall and winter, but when I do, I like to stick with an overall theme. This year, I’m loving the dark rich neutrals mixed with metallics and a little bit of an orangy rust color. A little more traditional fall than I have done in the past.
I am horrible at keeping things alive in planters, especially in the shade. So I decide to ‘plant’ cornstalks instead! It’s hard to tell from the pics but the cornstalks are actually coming out of the middle of the planters and are surrounded by tons of white pumpkins! Oh how I love love white pumpkins. It’s seriously an obsession. Our house is covered in them.
I just loved my paint drip pumpkins I showed earlier this month, so I did a few more for the porch! I always like to add subtle accents, and this time I added a few mini paint drip pumpkins into the arrangement.
And I’m pretty sure every fall porch has to have some mums! They are so vibrant and instantly bring character to a space.
Sometimes I wish I had a big porch with wrap around deck so i could have a cute little bench or sitting area out front, but our little space will do :)
Oh neutrals.. you make my heart go pitter patter.
Now it’s time to porch hop! Be sure to head over to anderson + grant next!
