It’s the first day of October and finally starting to feel like Fall here in New Hampshire. We’ve had an unseasonably warm September and I couldn’t get motivated to start decorating my Fall front porch wearing sandals and capris!
It was so beautiful out this past Sunday so I hauled out my bag-o-fake pumpkins and all my other outside decor to try and get inspired.
I bought this adorable wall basket on my Christmas Tree Shop haul last month and I couldn’t wait to use it for Fall. It’s nice and long and was only $7.99!

For my seasonal decorating, I like to use a mixture of textures and natural elements when decorating.
I used a rattan pumpkin nestled between two burlap pumpkins that I had painted a light green. I filled the rest of the basket in with a mixture of Fall leaf picks and dried hydrangeas.
To finish it off with a draping burlap bow and a little wooden pumpkin sign.
If you have vinyl siding you don’t have to make a hole to hang things; they make these great vinyl siding hooks-seriously, they are amazing and easy to use
I decided to go a little bit rustic this season on the porch.
The chair was a $2 thrift store find topped off with a vintage galvanized tub. Then I filled it with a Fall garland and added a faux white pumpkin in the middle.
Next to the chair I added a couple of ceramic pumpkins (I’ve had them forever and look forward to using them somewhere in my decorating every year.) and hung the metal welcome sign using a vinyl siding hook to finish the little display.
The ceramic pumpkins have strings of battery-operated fairy lights that are on timers to illuminate my porch in the evening.
The front door was dressed up with a Chinese lantern wreath.
This was a simple look on my porch and I’m pleased with how it all turned out.
The muted colors play against the gray house and light blue door.
