Fall Front Porch
Is it me or is fall flying by? And because I feel the fall decorating window is rather small before Halloween pushes in, I try to have my fall front porch decor transfer into the Halloween and then Thanksgiving. More bang for my buck, if you will.
I surprised myself and went with an all orange color scheme– orange pumpkins and orange mums to be exact. I’m not a huge fan of orange but I was feeling it this year.
The orange mums are from Costco. I believe a set of four was like $15. I kept them in the black planters they came in. I didn’t see the point in trying to make them fancy. Fingers crossed the mums stay orange, unlike my purple-turned-white mums on the deck that I purchased at Costco.
The massive pumpkins were from Costco for $6 each, and the regular-sized pumpkins on the steps were from Kroger. I scored the lanterns on clearance from Target last fall. I collected the smaller pumpkins that are inside the lanterns from Kroger, Trader Joe’s, and a local orchard. The wreath on the front door is from Home Goods. The rug and door mat are linked here.
I think this set-up will look good into November, don’t you?
I added some fairy lights to the lanterns so the pumpkins can glow at night. The fairy lights came with a timer mode so I set them to go off around 6PM and then they turn off at some point during the night.
Side note: I can’t wait to change out our outdoor wall lights the flank the porch and our garage doors. Every single house in our neighborhood has the same exact lights.
What fall colors did you go with this year?
I love the decor and orange works all Fall, in my opinion!
Just a quick side question: what kind of lock do you have on your house? My husband is very into home automation and would love to do something like what you have.
We installed that smart lock last year, you can read all about it here: https://www.twotwentyone.net/fall-front-porch-diy/
Yellow mums have always been my favorite, but I have to say I’m lovin’ the total orange! Thanks for the idea! Happy Fall! 🍁
I bought pumpkins the earliest of my entire life due to your Costco tip.#221mademedoit.
Hi Chelsea ~ never thought of going monochromatic! Your porch looks gorgeous right through Thanksgiving. I usually go with white, yellow and rust mums. But I might just change it up next year ! Hugs, Dorinda
