Welcome to Fall

Each Fall season I try to add in a new element
or change things up a bit out on the front porch.
Just yesterday I found this new Welcome sign at Inspirational Home.
I've been getting my porch together for the last week
and it's still a work in progress.

I love my reproduction iron gate piece here all year round,
and now it has a little Fall color added to it.

A chippy white bench and my white birdcage live out here most of the time.
I added a small wood carrier painted burnt orange with my angel vine.

The reflection in the door is across the street looking toward the park
where all the trees will be ablaze with color soon.

Front Door wreath

I've been on a bushel basket kick for a while,
and found these two new ones at the flea,
but they were banded with fuchsia and green,
not really what I wanted so I painted them out.

A little of the pink is still showing through.

As the season progresses I'll have more mums and pumpkins.
This is my wicker cone that I use year round,
just changing it out seasonally.

A few years ago I painted a little red wagon black and I've really
enjoyed using it as display for pumpkins and small mums.

Painted watering can...
slight obsession here.

Momma and baby concrete squirrels hang out here all year.

I can usually keep my ferns until November
 if I cover them when there's a light frost.

Here's to Welcoming Fall,
my favorite time of the year!

I'm joining in with these parties.

  1. Oh so Charming and Oh so Inviting...I loved the Sweet little wreath on your door...

  2. Debra...your porch is so warm and inviting dressed up for fall! Did you make your own wreath? It's one of the best I've seen so far, truly my style. Love all the greenery you have balancing out all of your decor. Lovely!


  3. Debra, your entry is stunning! You really have a way with all the little details that make the space feel so welcoming.

  4. Your porch is as cheery as your sunroom! So welcoming. XX

  5. I love the whole look, but that wagon!! I suppose if I quietly tried to roll that home with me, you would notice. Cuz I'd have to show it on my blog and then there would be the court dates and I will just keep an eye out for another one for me!!!

  6. Orange is only a terrific color when you decorate with it my dear! Simply marvelous! Jennifer

  7. Debra, if only my squirrels were all concrete and stayed in the same spot! The black wagon with white pumpkins is terribly terrific as is the rest of the front door. hugs♥O

  8. I love the pumpkin coloured watering can and tote. It all looks lovely! Pamela

  9. I love all of your fall touches! That old gate with the fleur de lis is fabulous. And I love the orange watering pail. I have so many old ones - I never thought of doing one orange!

  17. Debra, first of all I love the orange accessories. But I think my favorite thing is the black wagon holding the white pumpkins. How cute is that!?!?!?

    Our porch is so very, very sad, you wouldn't want to see!!!

  32. Hi dear Debra,
    OH it looks so beautiful, you have such a wonderful entrance.
    The vagon filled with the white pumpkins, are so gorgeous- and all the orange accents wonderful, like the can- and the buquet in the cone- you have a very elegant and beautiful taste, that I love.
    Hugs and love ,Dorthe

  33. Your Fall porch look is so cheerful. I haven't started on mine yet. Thanks for inspiring me to get started. Mine will probably sort of minimalist since my 'porch' is so small. I like your ferns in the urns too.

  34. What a beautiful welcome for family and friends Debra! Love the burnt orange as well as your new header!!

  35. Love your porch decor and especially the little wagon!

  36. Your fall porch décor is so charming, Debra! And I love how the bushel baskets look painted. I'll have to "borrow" that idea. ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday. Hope to see you again this week.
