It's Fall!

This past weekend we had what I felt was our first official Fall weekend. There was definitely a chill in the air, the pumpkin patches are open for business, Starbucks is serving pumpkin spice lattes, and I started to decorate our front porch for the season. I found some porches online to help jumpstart my creativity.

love wrapping columns with corn stalks...
a very simple display of pumpkins and mums....

I love the idea of drilling holes in pumpkins, something different from your typical jack -o- mums framing your door....
a pumpkin topiary..
I love that all these porches will easily work through Thanksgiving. I feel like anything I put up that screams Halloween must come down November 1st.

Happy Fall!!


  1. Hi Jill! Thanks for the lovely comments. I love all this inspiration!! It rained here all weekend so I didn't get to start on the porch. These are giving me great ideas to begin with:)

  2. I pinned some of those same porches. I like the idea of mixing the two. I put up a little Halloween, then decorate the rest so I can transition into November. Great ideas!

  3. Love! The mums that frame the porch are gorgeous!

  4. It was really cold in ATL! I need you to help me to decorate for the fall. I suc in that dept!

  5. Send some fall weather to LA, Jill! It's been almost 100 the past few days :( I'm loving all of your pumpkin photos- they are just what I needed! Happy Monday to you :) xx

  6. I'm so in love with fall!!!!!!!!! Love these!

  7. I had every intention of getting my pumpkins this weekend but it was raining... waiting for the perfect fall day! xo
