Simple Fall Front Porch

2011-09-14 001 

I’m starting to feel that crisp fall air a bit & craving pumpkin spice lattes, so fall must be close! I add a few simple touches to my front porch to help welcome my favorite season.


So far I have made a new wreath and added pinecones to the little planters.


I wanted a simple wreath with a natural look.  This was so easy to make.  I just used some flowing fall leaf stems and stuck them in a grapevine base starting at the top and working my way down.  I wanted them to hang on the wreath base  just as if they were growing on it.


 To finish it off I hung my wreath from some green burlap ribbon.  Another simple touch that I love.


I will probably add a few more things like some pumpkins and gourds, but for now I am feeling content with this simple look.

Is fall close where you are?’

  1. Beautiful! I still need to snap some of my porch, but Im waiting to fill my urns.

  2. this is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for...I want something organic and simple this year. Just simply pretty:)

  3. Very pretty! I'm trying hard to create a simpler look as well. When we move next spring it will be easier to work on this.

  4. gorgeous. love the color and the simplicity! and i like having the pinecones surrounding the little trees :)

  5. I love it! Very simple and I love how it doesn't have a typical wreath form either. So gorgeous!

  6. oh my goodness! I LOVE the little pine cones in the urns. Its all so beautiful!

  7. Great idea. I never thought to add pine cones to the planters, but it does look very fall-ish. Simple and easy is my motto this year.

  8. love that wreath! what a welcoming space...i wish i had the space for something to flank my door, too.

    happy fall!

  9. Absolutely, positively beautiful. Just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the beauty!

  14. Love your front door and adore the natural look of your wreath. Love that you did it loose like that. Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. Your wreath is simply gorgeous. Can't beat that combination... simple and elegant and gorgeous. Your use of pine cones in the planters reminds me to check on mine. I think my trees have overgrown the pine cones I put in there last fall.:) Love your black urns. Thanks for the inspiration.

  16. <3 that!! It is so beautiful, yet simple!

  17. This fall front porch is simply fantastic and beautiful! Would love if you linked up to the Scatter Girls' Fall Front Porch Party that is going on right now:
