Fall On The Porch

My porch is not very big, but I love to have a small seating area and a little seasonal decor.  I swapped out the pillows with some fall colored ones that I had on the patio and added my favorite jack-o-lantern.

 This is always a shady spot and when the weather cools, a great place to sit and have a glass of tea.

 I live in a typical subdivision, so you can see the teenagers cars across the street in the refelction in the window.  Nice boys, and always super polite.

 A quick change of fall colored flowers in the basket and a large burlap bow.

Not much, but just a little to celebrate the season.

Do you go all out on the porch, or are you more of a minimalist?

  1. Oh your porch is lovely ! Have a good day !

  2. Your porch looks so pretty! We won't have a PORCH and I will miss that cause I LOVED decorating this porch for the Seasons. NextSpring Joe will build a deck and we will have a patio installed so I am looking forward to that!!!! Happy Fall, Marty! XO, Pinky

  3. I love the space you have on your porch, Marty! I have a small overhang in front of our condo ~ enough for one of those small round tables and two chairs, but I'd love to have just a little bit more room. Next year we may expand out into the front bed with some stone work. I think you've dressed your space for Fall wonderfully. Just enough to enjoy it!

  4. Your porch looks very cozy and welcoming. You did a beautiful job!


  5. Your porch looks so pretty, Marty! It does look like a great spot for a glass of tea.

  6. Marty,
    Your porch is so pretty and inviting!

  7. That looks nice, Marty. So glad you have polite neighbors.

  8. I love the way the porches are decorated for each season. If we had a porch I'd certainly join in - I'm far from a minimalist!

  11. Very pretty, Marty! I love your rockers and the pillows and pumpkin are just the perfect touch!


  12. Marty,

    Your porch looks very inviting for fall.


  13. I read your title and thought you'd taken a fall on the porch. So glad that is not the case, and it looks quite lovely, Marty.

  14. Your front porch is so inviting, Marty ... all ready for Fall! Love your pillows! And, your garden hat is a sweet accent.

  15. Great job, Marty. Happy Fall. xo

  16. Hi marty, Im definitely not a minimalist! lol.. at least you can sit on your porch, on mine youd have to move a skeleton! LOL!
    happy day!

  17. Your front porch looks very cozy and inviting! Perfect fall escape!

  18. Oh Marty, your porch looks so inviting! Makes me want to come sit for a spell! I have a big basket on my bench by the front door with mums and a pepper plant in it. Not much,but it gives a touch of the season.

  19. Marty, I love your porch..and you have made it so inviting....it just says, welcome and stay a while!...You made some very beautiful Fall touches....just perfect!!

  20. Oh your sweet porch looks so cozy and inviting! I love the touch of fall on the door.

  21. Marty, your porch looks so pretty and inviting! I love the basket on the door and your pillows are just perfect! Very, very nice!

  22. Marty, your porch is so cute and inviting. I really love your wreath! Gotta pin it! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  23. My front porch is smaller than yours. I would love to be able to have a couple of rockers out there, but I only have a chair used for decoration. We do any sitting out back on the deck or patio. I've always dreamed of having a house with a huge wrap-around porch, but none of our houses have had one.

    I'm finally trying to kick it into gear. I did do some fall decorating and took some pictures...there is hope for me yet. Now, I just have to post them!

  24. Hi Marty, Your porch looks nice - love your door decoration as well!

    1. Couldn't agree more..I love it!Want to see this on my condo :)

  25. Marty, you are all set for Autumn.What a lovely way to welcome people to your front door too. I'm ready for the temps to cool it's still in the 80's here....Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop xo

  26. Your porch looks like such a lovely place to sit! I love rocking chairs on a porch. Funny, I don't have a single rocking chair in my house right now--that's sad, isn't it? I'm sure that will change some day when I have grandchildren, or at least I hope so.

    I don't go all out on the porch for every season, but I do like to add little touches for fall, spring, and Christmastime.

    Thanks so much for joining Grace at Home!
