The weather around here has cooled down significantly, and with settling back into our fall routine I have to say that I really don’t mind. We’ve had some cloudy days and even a bit of rain; and it’s definitely jacket season once again. All of these weather changes have put me in the mood for fall.
I’ve let go of summer and I’m now looking forward to sweaters and boots. Scarves and cozy vests. Warm soup and pumpkin spice chai.
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my story this weekend where I shared my joy at finding pumpkins at our local farm market already!
I know it seems SO early. I mean, Halloween is weeks and weeks away. But, they’re here! And not a moment too soon, because I had my sights set on changing our porch over to fall this past weekend. And you can’t do a fall porch without pumpkins, am I right?
And I found not just regular pumpkins; but some pretty crazy warty and striped pumpkins as well!
What do you think of this guy?
I didn’t intend to buy such a BIG pumpkin so early in the season… but once I saw this one, I had to have it!
I added some winter kale to my summer pots; I think the colour and texture works perfectly with the Coleus and Potato Vine that are still going strong from summer…
I also switched out our wreath; I’ll be sharing my tutorial for this super quick and easy five minute hydrangea wreath later in the week!
Pumpkins and Mums. That’s really about all you need…
Oh, and maybe a few apples.
I’m pretty excited that this is (hopefully, fingers crossed) the LAST time I’ll share our porch with this siding. I HOPE that we make it around this far on the house by the time we’re ready to switch over to a Christmas porch. I can’t wait to see the entry with the new Hardie Shingle!
Next week I’ll be back to share our fall entry hall tour, as well!
Until then, I hope you’ve found a little bit of inspiration for some super easy ways to add a welcoming fall feel to your front porch!
Some of my talented blogging friends are sharing their front porches today too!
Hop over to see what kind of early fall goodness they have in store…
