Fall front porch ( I think I have a pumpkin problem)

Here it is almost the first day of Fall (my favorite season).  The trees are starting to change and it is a little cooler today.  I am not sure if I like the way my front porch turned out.  I think I have too much of a pumpkin theme going on.  What do you think?



I made the pumpkin pillows from a table cloth.  Right now they are pinned.  I didn't have time today to get them sewn but of course that is just one trick of staging.




 It is too much yet?  There are a few more by the door.



The front door is the only area with no pumpkins.  How did I do that?
Oh wait I do see one small pumpkin on the bottom right.

Here is the long view of the porch.



I still need to get a rug for the porch and get the yard decorated.  I will probably get that done next weekend.  My tree has started changing color a little bit and has lost some leaves already.  My two tiny burning bushes are bright red also.



It is almost time for long sleeves and scarfs while sipping wine on the porch.  My favorite season.

  1. The more the merrier especially when it comes to pumpkins! Love your colourful displays - the orange pumpkins with black lanterns and crates look wonderful. The "tablecloth pillows" are fantastic even if not sewn yet!

  9. I love it, and, personally, don't think you can ever have too many pumpkins! I really like how you've mixed in the florals. Are those real?

    1. hank you. I saw your mantel and I have the same problem with decorating mine. I never seem to know what I want to do either. I love they way yours looks. I wish I had a hearth on mine. I think I might redo my fireplace next year and add an hearth.

  33. Being a southerner myself, I am partial to our lovely porches, I think it came out great! One can never have to many pumpkins during the season as far as I'm concerned, pinning yours to my porch board!

    1. Thank you. I still haven't sewn the pillows yet. We are getting ready to move this weekend so I will be lucky to have them done by next year. Our new house has a wrap around porch so now I will have more to decorate.
