Ushering in Autumn With Some Front Porch Decor

It's about that time of year, isn't it? Kids are back in school, stores are brimming with autumn-themed goods, Starbucks has it's annual pumpkin-spice beverages on the menu, and the garden is coming to its fruition.

The other afternoon, I gathered up all of my autumn outdoor decor pieces and put them to use. I reuse everything each year but try to change where and how I use it all.

In addition to what I had in storage, I also added this picket gate. It's been lingering by the side of the house since 2009 when it was removed. I knew there would be a good use for it!

The rest of the decor pieces came from thrift stores, Dollar Tree, and Michael's. I try to do seasonal decorating as frugally as I can.

Have a lovely day!


  1. So very pretty! It's fun to decorate a porch, isn't it? You have a lovely area to work with.

  2. Look very festive! Have a great weekend Lily!


  3. You have made a pretty, welcoming porch. I have not done any fall decorating even though what I do is minimal. I refuse to let summer go yet. Too many summer things still to do.:)

  4. Thank you, Kris. Yes, I agree - decorating a porch is fun and seems like you can't really go too wrong.
    I hope you had a lovely weekend.

  5. Thank you, live and learn. You likely have a longer summer-like season than we do, here in the PNW. It has definitely felt like Autumn this weekend in Seattle -- lots of rain, cool temps, and thunder and lightening. I hope that oyu can enjoy every last moment of summer where you are.

  6. Thank you, Shelby. I hope that you, too, had a lovely weekend!
