Farmhouse Fall Decor

Ahhh......I love Fall........well let me take that back,  I really love Summer but if it has to come to an end I am glad we get to ease into Winter with a little taste of Fall first.  I will admit I do love firepits, smores, brisk nights, hoodies and of course, Fall decorating.  There is just something about the Fall that gets everyone excited about decorating their front porches with pumpkins, rustic signs and country vibes. I have managed to gather a few of my favorite front porch decor ideas and I wanted to share them with you. It was a tough decision because there are just so many cute ideas but here you go........

 

 

I love the combination of pumpkins and gourds.  The different color variations add just the right contrast with the bold color of the pumpkins.  Oh and don't forget to vary the sizes for each to make it all come together just perfectly.  Nothing says Fall like a good mum.  Throw in a mum or 2 to the mix and you have the perfect Fall Decor display.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes you just aren't feeling the whole idea of carving a pumpkin.  Now don't get me wrong if you have small kids or even grand kids, I know this is one of their favorite things to do however, if you aren't really into it this year, this is the next best thing.  Decorate your uncarved pumpkin with ribbons and bows and pair it with a mum and a bale of hay and call it a day.  Now you can sit back and enjoy your simple rustic Fall decor display without all the mess.  

 

 

 

If time is an issue this year and you do not want to decorate twice (once for Fall and once for Halloween), this is the perfect idea for you. Combine Fall decor such as corn stalks, mums and Fall colored wreaths with simple Halloween decor like the galvanized pumpkin here.  This makes for an easy transition for both 'seasons' without having to do double the work.

 

 

 

The use of ladders has become more and more popular thoughout the home, whether you store old quilts/blankets, use it as shelving or even hang it on the wall as a decor piece.  This is a great example of multi purposing the ladder for different seasons throughout the year. Items such as the 'Harvest Season' sign, mini pumpkins, painted birdhouses and beautiful flowers filled with color are sure to steal the show as you display this Fall decor on your porch or garden space.  Just another fun way to decorate with simple things you most likely already have around the house.

 

 

 

Lanterns are another great way to decorate your porch or even use as a centerpiece for your dining table.  This is a simple and inexpensive way to change up the decor in your home.  Place artificial Fall leaves around the inside of the lantern and sit it on your front porch or entryway into your home.  Paired with Fall mums in an array of colors is sure to offer an inviting space for your guests.

 

 

I absolutely love this idea and how unique is this?  This is so unexpected yet so fun.  Use wooden crates to house mums with pops of color and create a welcoming front door with a basket full of delicious red apples just picked from the local market. If you have kids though, you may want to make sure there is a 'no door slamming' rule put into place unless you want to be chasing apples all over town (sigh!!).     

 

 

If you have the porch space, why not use a farmhouse bench to display your Fall decor?  This is a great place to create an inviting entryway and showcase your Fall finds such as pillows, pumpkins and pinecones as shown here.  

 

 

So maybe orange is not your favorite color....who says you can't paint your pumpkin to be a little more elegant and to fit in with your home decor.  In case you haven't heard, there are no rules to Fall decor so go ahead, paint your pumpkins.  I love the gold pumpkin in this pic.  It adds just enough glam to offset the neautral color scheme.

 

 

As you can see there are many ways to decorate for Fall, the possibilites are endless.  These were some of my faves that I thought were unique but there are plenty more where these came from.  I hope this helped give you some inspiration and got some of your creative juices flowing.  Fall brings out the rustic-country style in our home decor.  Happy Fall Y'all and Happy decorating in Sweet Country Style.
