This post will give you ideas for incorporating vintage, handmade, and nature into your ideal festive Fall front porch.
One of the best things about all this time at home lately means I have time to actually decorate for Fall.
Our front porch is finally ready for its close-up. Here is the finished product:
Here are a few tips and tricks I came up with to get your front porch Fall ready quickly and easily.
Incorporate Vintage Items into your Seasonal Decor
Use vintage items and crates to create depth and height on your front porch. This Cape Cod Cranberries crate is absolutely one of my favorite finds ever from Boxwood and Grace. I typically keep it on my hearth throughout the year, but this year it made its debut on the front porch. I mean, come on. Mayflower? Cranberries? Can you find a more festive crate?
There is no bottom in it but the hay bale I purchased at the Kinsey Warehouse Sale (along with the fantasy and heirloom pumpkins) fit in perfectly.
This incredible industrial antique stool also came from the Warehouse Sale and I am in love. It will stay on the porch through all seasons with different potted plants on top.
Add a few items you made.
There is something incredibly cozy and endearing about things you made with your own hands. They do not have to be perfect. They do not have to be without flaw.
I made these two signs and they are perfect for our front porch this year.
We tried twice to get it to hang on the siding without putting a screw through it. No such luck. So now there is a screw hole in our siding. The small price you pay for cuteness, #amirite?
This one is double sided.
That way, we could add a touch of Halloween without being too intrusive with the rustic Fall colors.
Buy ALL of the pumpkins and mums. All of them.
I’m not gonna lie. The pumpkins weren’t cheap. But I’ve dreamed of this porch for basically ever now.
Also a friend left her pumpkin to rot in her yard out of pure laziness last year and this year she harvested something like 12 pumpkins from that. And I can be pretty lazy, so basically what I’m saying is next year I’m going to have my own pumpkin patch. So it was an investment. At least that’s what I’m telling my husband.
