Cottage Fall Front Porch

Hello, hello! I’m super excited to show you our Fall front porch! I’ve written about the front porch before and how much I love it. With the weather cooling down, I try to spend every spare moment out on the porch soaking up every piece of beauty that I can see. Over the last few weeks, I’ve decorated the porch for Fall by shopping my house as well as finding a few things at Kirkland’s.

One of my favorite features of the porch is the high ceiling. It is fabulous!

This green bench is from Kirkland’s and it is the perfect addition. I love the extra seating and the bright green color is delightful. Our porch has large awnings all around, so it stays relatively dry when it rains.

The crocheted afghan was made by my sweet Granny. I treasure it!  Having a blanket nearby is perfect for staying warm during cool mornings and evenings.

I added my yellow vase from Joss & Main filled with colorful branches and two pumpkins to the bamboo table that I made over last year. I love having a pen and paper handy in case a burst of inspiration strikes. 

I created a little vignette beside the front door with thrifted finds, my “Count Your Blessings” sign, a lantern {now discontinued} and twig pumpkin from Kirkland’s, mums and pumpkins.

I love buying pumpkins at the farmer’s market because the pumpkins are so unique. The prices are comparable to big box stores.

And the other side of the steps looks like this…with another Kirkland’s lantern. I don’t see this lantern online, but there were a bunch in the store.

I’m such a sucker for lanterns!

Is there anything better than a warty, bumpy pumpkin?! :)

I just cut these branches out of my yard. I think they are from a dogwood tree?

That, my friends, is my Cottage-y Fall Front Porch! I would love for you to stop by anytime so I can serve up some Pumpkin Pound Cake with a warm and cozy drink!

Huge thanks to Kirkland’s for helping me decorate my happy space for Fall. The porch is truly one of my favorite places to hang out and treat myself to some peace and quiet especially while my boys are napping! :)

What is your happy place where you enjoy spending time?

Have a fabulous day!

    I love your front porch. It’s genuine, just as I feel that you are. It shows that you have a great eye, but still design within a “real” person’s budget. I have found that several interior design blogs start out keeping the “poor” working class in mind, but with their success, which is great, they leave many of us behind. Enjoy your cozy place.

    I think it’s a dogwood–our dogwood has red berries like that. I love it and I should go cut a few of ours to bring in–thanks for the idea!

    Your porch is beautiful! If I were designing my a home to build, I’d include a big front porch–maybe our next house will have one :)

    I so love your porch! It is way to hard to pick just one thing or season so I would have to say that I love everything winter and fall! Thanks for the chance to win!
