I added a few pumpkins and dried flowers to create our Fall front porch
Now that’s it’s officially Fall, I decided to give our front porch a little sprucing. It’s pretty neglected all summer due to the heat and humidity but I’m proud to say I kept the ferns alive! I love Fall so much and I’m so excited to welcome cooler weather, pumpkin flavored goodies, and Halloween! Here are my simple tips for creating a fall front porch.
Okay, don’t judge but my front stoop really needs pressure washing. I didn’t have time to do that so I’m just gonna say that it’s supposed to be that way for Halloween. 😉 It’s perfectly green and gross just in time for trick or treating. Ha!
You really don’t need to do too much when decorating your front door for Fall. A simple wreath goes a long way. Instead of a traditional wreath, I like to hang a basket just like this one.
I did this same exact thing last year and loved it. It’s a great way for me to use our limelight hydrangeas that grow like crazy throughout the end of Summer and early Fall.
Here is one of my bushes that grow way over 6 feet tall. I cut a bunch of stems and remove all the leaves. I just love how limelights start off as white blooms and then they turn into a lime color as Fall approaches. If you are interested in growing hydrangeas, limelights are the easiest ones to grow as they thrive in both sunlight and shade. I think they are the lowest maintenance of all hydrangeas and grow without you doing really anything to them.
Place a bunch in the basket and arrange them so they look full. If you don’t have limelights, you can also use a bunch of faux hydrangea fall stems.
It doesn’t look like a lot but I probably used about 15-20 stems. You can also use faux florals if you don’t have a limelight bush. Look at that focused face! You can make it as full as you want so I filled it until no more could fit.
I obviously had to bring Bonina out. The other day, I went out and saw that one of my real pumpkins had decomposed badly. The warm weather and tons of rain in GA last week didn’t help. I mostly added faux pumpkins and kept the ferns in my black urns. I bought the welcome mat a while back from from Marshalls online but here’s another cute and inexpensive option.
Aside from the disgusting decomposed pumpkin that I had to remove, I’m loving it. What do you think?
Let all that you do be done in Love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
