Fall Home Tour: Front Porch

Every year I look forward to spending a day decorating my porch for the fall.  I love all the colors and textures of fall plants, pumpkins, and produce and like to incorporate as much as I can.  Just like I discussed in my fall living room tour,  I collect many of the items I use throughout the year and save them for the fall, and I also have staple pieces that I use every year.  The distressed pair of baskets that I put the mums in were scooped up at a garage sale for a couple of dollars.  They aren't in the best shape, but I like having the matching baskets on each side, and they work perfect as an outdoor planter!  I also got the large wreath on my front door at a garage sale, again for just $1!  It's the perfect size and really brings together all the different autumn colors I have around the front porch.  Every year I always have cornstalks attached to the white pillars, planters on the front steps, and my barnwood side on the left side of the porch.  I got the large barnwood "fall" sign last summer during a trip to Nashville.  It was outside of Imogene and Willie's, where they just happened to be selling some store displays that day.   I painted "fall" on the front side and "joy" on the back so that I can just flip it for my Christmas porch!    Home Depot and Lowe's both have a good selection of mums, kale and cabbage plants, ornamental grasses, and corn stalks starting around September.   This year I got pretty much all my plants and my cornstalks at Home Depot.  I got many of my pumpkins at the farmer's market and the Hillenmeyer flower shop (in front of the Fresh Market in Landsdowne)- they have an AMAZING selection and I got my cornstalks there too last year.   Trader Joe's also sells these unique looking pumpkins (they call them Cinderella pumpkins), or you can usually find them at a local farm or orchard.  I love coming home to a burst of fall at my front door everyday- enjoy my fall porch tour!
