Even though the weather today felt more like summer than fall, my front porch entryway is all ready for the fall season! I made my wreath for the front door with corn husks and a few faux berries and fall leaves mixed in for color!
I like having a storm door, but not when it comes to taking photos – it’s hard not to get myself in the picture with the door’s reflection! So, I have views from the right and also the left! I’ve got a real mixture of elements – straw bales, mums, pumpkins . . . but I’m pretty happy how it came together.
The lantern is from Pottery Barn and I purchased it at the outlet in the spring for a steal! Here it holds a large battery operated candle with some chestnuts and walnuts at the base.
The cabinet door chalkboard announces that Fall is Here!
Here’s the view from the left – I was peeking through the lavender!
The crock is filled with tree branches and some sorghum. The oversized pumpkin is a new variety for me – I love the pale cream and orange color! An old wire basket holds a rust colored mum wrapped in burlap!
This chippy little piece of wood still holds some rusty hinges on one end. It must have been a small cabinet door. I bought it a long time ago because I loved the color! It’s very similar to the color of my front door! A local craftsman made the numbers from a piece of rusty tin – 50 is our house number. I hot glued the tin numbers to the chippy wood and propped it against the straw bale! I am loving the orange color of the pumpkins against the chippy aqua blue wood!I’m still working on other fall projects and will be back later this week with more to share!

Definitely pinning this to my various boards! Absolutely love the wreath! Did you make it? And if so, any chance of a tutorial?
I love everything about your front porch–especially that I can see it every day! The wreath is so neat–I love the contrast of the wheat and the darker items on it. And I love numbers! What a neat way to display your house number. You have lots of ideas for me to copy!
thanks as always,
Yvonne @ StoneGable

Beautiful vignette! I love how you incorporated your house number. Visiting from Southern Hospitality 🙂
It's all very pretty, but the blue door is my favorite!

I love the blue door, it really sets the serene tone. I love how your fall porch is so muted in color compared to, like, FALL color, you know what I mean?
i love it all, Doreen, those metal house numbers are so great!!
Kristen @ It Comes Full Circle
I absolutely love all your door decor! Those metal numbers against the blue, chippy wood are my favorite part. I love it! Pinning! 🙂

Hi! I love your decor! Getting some idea to decorate my home. Question, what is the color of your front door?
Your porch looks so festive for all…love the chalkboard nestled among the pumpkins and hay stack.
Doreen your porch looks wonderful! Thank you for joining us ladies for the Falling For Fall Porch Party.
