Today I'm sharing our front porch all decorated for fall. Yesterday was the official start of the season, but it couldn't get here soon enough for me. I love the change in the weather, the beautiful blue skies combined with golden light, football, and fires in the fire pit.
Playing up the aqua in the rug, I decided to use a lot of it this fall. I found some burlap and promptly made another burlap ruffled shade. The directions on how to make one are HERE.
Back in August, I found this throw with these adorable pom poms on it that had all the same colors in the rug. There have been just a few chilly mornings that I've been able to use it but I expect to be able to wrap myself in its softness soon.
Imagine my surprise when I found this (affiliate link) pillow cover on Amazon last month. Perfect colors at a perfect price-$5.99! No kidding! I couldn't believe that price, either!
I already had this bushel basket and it got updated with a little aqua paint. It makes a great mum holder!
We grew some pumpkins in our garden this summer but only 2 developed and then rotted. So I had to resort to using some faux pumpkins, painted aqua, of course!
In the rocking chair is a pumpkin painted pillow! It used to be orange but not this year! The ribbon on it matches the ribbon that I used on our Fall Rake Wreath.
Beside the rocking chair, I used another bushel basket as a side table. An old metal piece from a discarded light fixture serves as a top.
Did I mention that I don't throw away anything? Another aqua pumpkin in a wire basket!
This little cat figurine adds a little autumnal touch, don't you think? You know how we love our critters!
Lucy, our dog, and our cat, Henry, love our front porch, and it's the first place we head out onto early each morning.
Around the front door is a grapevine garland that gets dressed for each season. Right now it's adorned with more of those pine cone zinnias that we made. You can find the directions on how to make them HERE.
The old wheelbarrow got a wash of aqua paint and is holding the topsy turvy pumpkins this year.
On the other end of the porch is our eating area. The table has been cozied up with an old quilt.
On the serving table is a vignette with this sign that says it all!
Dried hydrangeas from the yard have been tucked into a vintage picnic basket along with a faux pumpkin.
I've developed a "thing" for picnic baskets lately and have painted quite a few this year. You can see some of the layering of different colors on the side of this one.
Another pretty mum in the corner of this end of the porch.
As I was finishing up photographing our fall porch this afternoon, we had another downpour of rain. The lights in the orange pumpkin cast a warm glow on all the festive, autumnal colors on our fall porch.
The home is simply beautiful, love the mixture of aqua color with other bright and cheerful colors (: Beautiful, simply love it!
Very cute porch. Never would have thought of aqua as a fall color, but it works!
Jane, I love the aqua and red combination on your fall porch! Your wonderful quilt and new rug are the perfect inspiration. Adorable owl pillow cover and great price too! I have wheelbarrow envy 🙂
I love your porch but I actually came to find out about the topsy turvy pumpkins. Can you please tell me more about those?

I adore your porch, I would love to come for a sit and have a wonderful visit, I love everything, but that white rocking chair has me wanting to paint my Nanny's rocker that is on our porch, maybe I should just do it, it looks so wonderful! And Lucy, it was so nice to see her face! xoox

Oh my goodness, love, love, love your porch!!! You know I love the colors you used and I see the throw we both have a fondness for! I really love the quilt you used as a table cover and your milk can! Pinning, pinning, pinning!!!
Jane, I have been waiting for this post all summer. The reason I was so intetested is I had seen the rug. I wanted to see how you would incorporated the blue because I use a similar blue in my house. The blue is beautiful with the copper pumpkins. The attention to detail is seen in almost every photo. Well done. Thank you for sharing. Jean
Now this is a porch that speaks my language!!! Reds are my favorite color and combined with turquoise - hello! Talk about attention to detail, Jane. Everywhere the eye wanders there is something adorable to look at. From your whimsical pumpkin topiary to the grapevine garland with turquoise pine cones, to the pretty pillows...well I just love it all. Pinning and sharing 🙂 Marie from The Interior Frugalista

Your fall porch is absolutely adorable, Jane! My favorite color is Aqua, so I'm really enjoying your front porch. I love the softer colors you've chosen. This space is so inviting, I might just stop by and sit awhile !
This is hand down the cutest porch I've seen for fall yet! LOVE IT! And love the colors you used! May have to get out the paintbrush to spiffy up one of my picnic baskets now!
