Farmhouse Fall Porch
Well hello there fabulous people, come in and relax while I show you our simple farmhouse fall porch. I’m excited for today’s post because this is the first time in almost a year of blogging that I’m sharing our front porch. Kinda crazy, huh? It’s actually not very big and I usually don’t do much with it. But I figured since it’s almost the middle of October now (seriously, can you believe that?!) I better get my booty in gear and spruce up this area with lots of pumpkins and wonderful fall things. We actually took our annual trip to a little pumpkin farm in our hometown this past weekend, which is one of my favorite traditions ever. It’s about a two and a half hour drive, but totally worth it–plus we get to catch up with family and eat tons of yummy food. All good things. Anyway, I loaded up the truck with lots of pumpkins and came home ready to decorate!
You could say I have an obsession with mini pumpkins. They’re just so small and cute, I definitely prefer them over normal sized pumpkins. Plus there are so many different ways you can use them–I loved piling up the ones I have here and putting them in buckets and baskets.
That funny looking orange and green pumpkin there in the middle was actually my son’s find at the pumpkin patch this weekend. He walked all the way out into a field to pick it himself, so of course I had to put it on display. I certainly wouldn’t call it the best looking pumpkin I’ve ever seen, but I actually kind like that it’s unique. And it’s special to him, so I wanted to find a good spot for it.
I also got the corn kernels from the pumpkin patch and just filled up a few mason jars with them. Easy and simple!
I’ve had that old door leaning in this corner for a while now. It makes the perfect backdrop for the pumpkin farm sign, which was a simple DIY project I did a few weeks ago. You can find the tutorial for that in this post.
Ok you guys, look at this GIANT white pumpkin. Have you ever seen one so big? This sucker weighs at least 50 pounds, maybe more. I was so excited to bring it home and find a spot for it. I think this old Greyhound wagon works perfectly. Oh and by the way, we named the pumpkin Wilbur. It just feels right.
So there’s our simple fall porch. I loved that I was able to incorporate a few vintage goodies like the old door and the wagon into this space, it definitely feels like an extension of our home out here. I hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe got some inspiration for your own porch or front entry. Even if you don’t have much room to work with, you can still make it a cute and welcoming space with just a few pumpkins and items you love. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know if you have any questions, I always love hearing from you! xoxo
