Hello, hello! It’s time for a new reveal! Last week, I showed you my Neutral Fall Wreath for this year and it inspired me to decorate my whole porch for fall. If you were around last spring, you might remember my budget porch makeover, which gave my porch a whole new look. Before than, I didn’t really decorate it for different seasons because it was so, well, blah.  So this was the first time I have EVER decorated my porch for fall and I had so much fun!

I used my Fall Pumpkin Wreath as my inspiration for the porch and created a neutral, yet festive fall porch. I used crisp whites, natural tones from the corn and burlap and gray (even though it looks more like blue in the pictures).

Can I tell you how happy this porch makes me feel? I love fall and every time I pull into my driveway and look at my porch I get a huge smile on my face.

I was too impatient to wait for the white pumpkins to arrive in stores, so I bought carving pumpkins and spray painted them white. It was really simple, I just taped the stems and gave them a few coats.

I created this vintage farmhouse sign by painting a pallet and then distressing it. The town I live in is surrounded by farms so I thought I would give my porch a little country flair. I actually picked up a bundle of corn-stalk from a farm down the street (I even walked out into the corn fields with her while she cut it down… have I told you how much I love where I live?). But after doing some research I realized my green corn stalks weren’t going to brown for another month, so I gave in and purchased these at the grocery store.

Even after 6 months, I am still loving my new gray door. Which is surprising considering I generally want to repaint a room almost as soon as I am finished with it :)

The burlap bunting was a last-minute addition and I think it makes the porch a little more welcoming.

I used the same crates as I did in for my Spring/Summer Porch and I kept the same planter too! But you would never know it because I gave it a little makeover with some burlap and fresh white mums! I’m all about being economical :)

Oh fall makes me so happy! What about you? Do you decorate your porch for each season?

  1. I absolutely love this Taryn! The white pumpkins are classic and I am in love with the pallet. I have a pallet in my backyard that’s been there for a few years now. I always think that I should do something with it, thanks so much for the inspiration!

  2. I just love the fresh corn sign! In patiently waiting for the weather down her in AZ to cool off enough to decorate outside more! Love how you used the crates as well!

  3. I can not even handle how much I love this!!! I recently did a fall mantle, keeping it neutral using touches of gold. (You’ll have to visit my site to see it.)
    Something about the calm of white and tans, just makes anything look pretty. I can’t wait to spray paint me some pumpkins =)

  4. This is so very cute and pretty all at the same time, while being very festive. I adore the wreath. It is adorable! Also ve what you did with the corn stalks and the cute sign in front of them. Very creative twist on cornstalks. Love it! Thanks for inspiring us. Happy Fall to you!

  5. Taryn, I too have never decorated my front porch for fall, but this year I ventured to give it a shot. I didn’t go quite as neutral as you, but I did include greys as well, and was surprised at how well it went with other fall colors. Best wishes as you head toward the holidays.

  6. Develop a floor plan and layout your furniture prior to remodeling your sun porch to create an organized, functional and aesthetically pleasing family room.

  7. This is so pretty and such a different look for Fall. Love your farm-style sign and the burlap banner “hello” is the cutest! Lots of good ideas. I’m inspired!

  8. Love what you have done with your house! Now I want to repaint the front door Gray! Will need to buy some crates for height! Fantastic!

  9. I am never surprised when I click on a fabulous thumbnail at a linky party and find myself here at your blog…. I just give a little chuckle and say to myself, “I should have known it was Taryn!” Your porch is fantastic. Beautiful color combo and I love the pallet.
    (I hear ya on the spray painted pumpkins, too.)

  10. Taryn this is incredible!!! I absolutely love the pallet and the corn stalks and the banner and the wreath..ok…I love it all! LOL! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Inspiration Friday!

  11. I found you over on 52 Mantels and have been peeking around your lovely blog! I love this. You did a beautiful job! The wreath is to die for. Thanks, your latest follower. :)

  12. ahhh, I love this! I need a pallet. Great job, I am now following. I would love it if you would share this on Super Sweet Saturday
    Thanks,
    Stepahnie

  13. OMG! I love your porch, it’s beautiful! My very favorite thing is the sign made from the pallet! I pinned it to my “What to do with a pallet” Pinterest board. Sadly my porch is the size of a stamp so a pallet won’t fit but maybe I can come up with something!! :o)

  14. I LOVE your pretty porch! Maybe, because I’m going for a similar look at my own home! I love the challenge of making a cozy fall look without oranges, golds and reds. Nice job!

  15. I’m loving your fall porch! Great way to display the corn stalks – keep ‘em a little corralled!
    xo,

  16. Sure like your pallet sign. Do you mind if I use your idea? I know mine won’t be nearly as good but will try to give it a go. I started a sign in Sept. but woe is me it just didn’t make it. Have to resand and try again with something else.
    I also am going to check out your holiday burlap pillows. Love making things with burlap or paint cloth and pillows or table runners especially.
    I’m a new subscriber so will be visiting often, sure like what I see so far.

  17. I love the neutral colors. I wish I could get white pumpkins here…but I’ve decided I’m going to use a can of spray paint on some orange ones. Thank for the inspiration!

  18. You may have already answered this somewhere, but I couldn’t find it…. What paint color is the door? i absolutely love it! Gorgeous job! :)

  19. A white Halloween decoration!,So neat and pretty, totally different from the usual decoration I see here in our neighborhood and the ones that I’ve been using for years. You have inspired me and will certainly try this one next year.
