It’s fall! Well, I live in Miami, so it’s still pretty green around here. Miami has no idea that it’s fall! I want to share with you how I decorated my porch for fall, so that it would feel like we have in fact changed seasons, even if the coconut trees are none the wiser.
Fall porch decorating ideas 101: add pops of orange! This is an opportunity to mimic the colors that are naturally occurring somewhere else in the world. Let me take a moment to say how much I love this Martha Stewart swing that we purchased at Home Depot a few years ago. The only thing that could have made it better is if it came with a cold glass of sweet tea! We sit there all the time, especially during this time of the year, when the weather changes (in Miami language, that means less hot).
The pillows on the swing are from Target and I purchased the initial pumpkin from Kirklands, three years ago on a mega-after-thanksgiving-sale, those are the best times to splurge on these items.
I added a little pumpkin to the plants that were already in my planter. I considered buying mums or something more colorful but the little pumpkin infused enough color. I then surrounded the planter with some more pumpkins. These pumpkins are not real because pumpkins won’t be available for a couple more weeks over here, but the real ones are beautiful and I will probably switch them out later on. I usually use these to decorate inside the house.
Then the door. I have used these wreaths for years, and as long as they keep their color, I will continue to use them. I love how they pop with the existing brown door.
Then of course, a little rug. The finishing touch to any porch. This one was less than 6.00 at Ross…crazy!
One last look at the porch!
So Miami may not know that it is fall, but my neighbors sure do!
Do you decorate the porch? Are the trees already changing in your neck of the woods?
