fall porch decorating ideas

Today I am here to share with you our fall porch, as well as many other fun fall porch ideas from my friends. 

There is nothing I like more than being outdoors in the fall.

I am not a fan of super hot weather and when fall hits, I am one happy camper. 

It is my favorite time to get outside and garden, prune, and tidy up outdoors, getting everything ready for the winter months ahead.

I also love to take advantage of the weather by eating meals outside on the deck. 

There's nothing better than watching the eagles fly over the lake, or seeing the hot air balloons overhead while sipping on a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, depending on the time of day!

Decorating your outdoor spaces for fall does not have to cost a lot of money. It also shouldn't take a lot of time to do. 

All you need is a few pumpkins, maybe some mums in your favorite color. Let the falling leaves and nature by the star of the show. 

As you can see here, I used pumpkins and gourds from Trader Joes to line the table with, and added fall flowers in gorgeous colors to really get that fall feel.

Shortly, I will be showing you the step by step on how to make that hello sign, so please check back!

This is our back deck. We spend a lot of time here year round. There's a hot tub for chilly evenings, and a small gas fire pit. It overlooks the lake on one side and the backyard and woods beyond on the other. 

When you walk up our stairs to the back deck, this is what you see. 



We had breakfast out here last weekend and I thought I'd take a few pics to show you how simple it can be to recreate this look.

I like to add varying heights to my table settings so I started by placing a galvanized cake stand in the center of the table. 

Stack a couple cinderella pumpkins and then add one or two to the table on either side. 


Set out stacks of bowls or plates for the family so they can easily grab whatever they'd like.



Who doesn't love cold cereal for breakfast? My favorite is golden grahams, what is yours? 


I did put a pot of hot oatmeal out in case somebody wanted something a bit healthier.


 Apple cider is a must for fall. If you like hot apple cider, you have got to try this recipe. 



You can add in some cabbages and mums for color.
I "planted" a cabbage in an old Folgers container to go with the fun and whimsical breakfast.




On chilly fall days be sure to bring blankets outdoors to curl up in.







Someone is missing out on all the fun.:)

Happy fall!
