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

    Looks cute Sarah, Wilbur is awesome! I have a very small front porch, smaller than yours and just put out my pumpkins, wooden crow and pumpkin and a big mum yesterday. I would so love to have a big front porch!

      Yay Wilbur! Sounds like your porch looks amazing. I really wanted to get a few pretty mums for the porch too, but my husband reminded me of all the plants I bought this summer and then they died because I’m awful at keeping plants alive. So I decided to save my money!

  5. Not only do I love the way you decorate your home, but I love the way your fall porch turned out. I think my favorite is the pumpkin farm sign.

  • Sometimes I wonder what my kids will think when they look back on these little squares I share here everyday.

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
  • My favorite time of day— when the sun goes down & everything starts to glow. That’s when it really feels like Christmas is coming. There’s just something magical about those twinkling lights! ✨✨
