I’ve been playing outside today, bringing a little fall to the porch. During the summer it looks something like this
Because the porch is all white (for the most part) it’s a blank slate for anything you can dream up. For the 4th of July, it looked like this. (4th of July porch can be viewed here: Porch Decorated For the 4th of July)
It was time to add a little fall to the porch.
The wall to the right of the swing definitely needed something. So I stole the wreath from my fall decorated mantle in the family room.
Some how Halloween crept out onto the porch. Love the title of this book. It’s not about what you think it’s about.
I couldn’t decide what to do with the hutch. It started out with a faux leaf garland across the top, but I eventually removed it. It just felt a little too busy. (Hutch painting tutorial can be found here: Paint a Hutch for the Porch)
Swapped the summer china on the hutch for plates with more of an autumn feel.
The fall floral arrangement on the door is the same one I used last year for fall. The only thing I purchased for fall this year was a lantern from Old Time Pottery.
This shabby, old chair holds a sunny red geranium all summer. Old chairs make great plant stands.
For fall, it’s sporting a sunshine yellow Chrysanthemum.
If you could grow sunshine in the garden, I’m pretty sure this is how it would look.
A view yesterday as the sun began to go down. I feel an attack of hot cocoa coming on, don’t you? The only question is, one dollop of whipped cream, or two?
Happy Fall! See you tomorrow for Tablescape Thursday!
