Our Fall Front Porch

Our fall front porch feels so welcoming right now.

It’s one of those ‘walk up to the front door and grin because of how it makes you feel’ situations.

That could have something to do with the smiling trio.

Aren’t they the happiest?

The smiling trio was created using the simplest idea – transform black duct tape into Halloween decals. Specifically, jack o’lantern faces for these planters but I also made bat decals.

You can get the instructions here.

“Trio” might be the theme of this year’s fall porch because, on the other side of the front door, I have a pumpkin topiary created with a trio of pumpkins.

In an accidentally genius move, I positioned the pumpkin topiary in the right spot so that if you look at it straight on, it appears to have a stem.

Do you see it?

It only took EVERYONE with an eagle eye on my Instagram stories pointing this out to me before I realized what I had accidentally done.

That’s so much better than purposefully doing something and having no one notice.

My ego is perfectly comfortable with being accidentally brilliant on occasion. Ha!

But when I step back and look at our front door in its totality, I don’t see any of that.

The first thing I notice is “business on the left, party on the right.”

That’s how I think of this year’s decor. A little serious and stately to the left of the door. A little goofy and fun to the right of the door.

And I love it all. Why be one when you can be both?

Last, but certainly not least, we have the whole other end of our front porch where we can sit and enjoy it all on our new double rocking chairs.

If you were my neighbor, I’d invite you over to sit on the front porch with me for a while.

Porch sitting, especially with a drink in hand, is simply the best.

I can’t quite explain why, but of all the seasons, I think decorating a front porch for fall is the most fun.
