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.

I have an obsession with botanical artwork & these are my new favorite. This is all on the blog today & I also linked up a bunch of other botanical prints from Walmart here: http://liketk.it/2Ea9s #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ad #LTKhome
  • Spent the day in jammies, snuggling my sick kiddos + watching all of their favorite movies 😍 I hate seeing them sick, especially since we’re only a few days into the new school year, but I sure do love these simple days when they need me the most. Nothing else matters more than this right here ❤️👏🏻 http://liketk.it/2E8FG #liketkit @liketoknow.it

Much more cozy now 👏🏻👏🏻 Do you move things around in your home from one room to another? I do it all the time & it’s an easy way to freshen things up without spending any money! http://liketk.it/2E70b #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • My little kitchen island is one of my favorite things in our home + I always get so many questions about it. It was actually made from reclaimed barn wood & we’ve had it over 10 years now 😍😍 I bought it when we moved into our first home & it’s been with us ever since. I kinda have an emotional connection to it now—it’s been through so much with us. Do you have furniture like that?? I’ll probably still have this island in my kitchen when I’m an old granny! 👵🏻❤️
