Autumn Porch Decorating

I love Fall! The earthy colors are some of my favorites. If you follow my blog you would remember that I had white wicker furniture before. After a trip to the Biltmore Estate I was insprired by the more natural wicker that was used on the porches. So my hubby surprised me with a new porch set for my birthday.
I really love the warm honey color mixed with rusts and oranges.

 Faux pumpkins along with some indian corn  give just enough color to brighten my table. So many real looking pumpkins can now be found without the mess of a mushy mess later to clean up.

 We love to sit out here at night and take in the cool night air along with the sounds of owls hooting in the distance.

 Last years wreath I made was dressed up with a new bow for fresh look.
 My mum from last year needs just a few more days to show off its yellow flowers just beginning to bloom. These two rockers now need to be repainted again to go more with colors of the rest of the porch.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my porch as much as I loved decorating it. Soon it will transform more into a more Halloween style but I usually wait till about a week before to  do so.
