Welcome to our fall front porch!autumn porch 1{wreath info here}

I have had these spiders for almost 10 years! From my mom. The fake pumpkins are also from my awesome mom~she got them at Michaels for a penny each after Halloween awhile ago. Can you believe that? You should have seen the look on our husbands’ faces when my sisters and I wanted to load our cars up with fake pumpkins when we were visiting for Christmas :)

Tip: don’t buy mums that are already blooming because they will turn brown quickly! I always find myself wanting the instant satisfaction of beautiful blooms right from the start, but then they only last a week or so…and then those $4 mums weren’t such a great deals because I have to buy more. The burgundy ones should be beauties in about a week or so.

The carved fake pumpkin was from a yard sale this summer for $1. The yellow tins are from Lowes summer clearance, $3 each. 
My topiaries are still hanging in there, but they are turning colors with the cooler temps. More fake penny pumpkins and dollar tree crows…

  1. Looks great! I love the new black door as the back drop too. The car full of one cent pumpkins is hilarious! What a score!

  2. Hi, Melissa!  Your porch looks so pretty!  A penny for those pumpkins?  That's crazy!

  3. I hopped on over from the Fall Door Party. I love the colors and contrast of your inviting porch. Penny Pumpkins? That is the BEST deal ever!

  4. So pretty!  I love it all...well, except for maybe the spiders. :)
    Hope you are having a great Fall!

  6. So welcoming!  Great tip about the mums!!

  7. Your entry way is so pretty, and classy!

  8. Very pretty!  I agree about the mums- it's a test of patience for me but I am always happy when they last a while. :)

  9. I clicked your link from rhoda's... via layla's.  

    Your front porch looks so classic and pretty.  Not... too much.  I love your wreath- did you make?  buy?

    Thank you, Liz Marie!

  12. I absolutely love your front porch... I love all the decorations. My favorites are the spiders (even though I'm terrified of spiders) and the carved pumpkin. Great tip on the mums. Thanks.... Have a lovely day.
    (sorry for the double post... Computer issues when posting... You can delete post by Mary Jane... That's me.)

  13. Your front porch looks wonderful!  Of course, pretty much everything you touch turns to gold.  I love, love, love the way you break down the cost of each thing.  And pumpkins for a penny?  That may be the best buy ever!

  14. Very pretty.  I love the spiders - what a great purchase.

  15. Your porch is so pretty!  I love all the mums and pops of orange!  

  16. How very pretty, I love the wreath and the spiders. The enamel buckets give it a pop of fall color too. It all says WELCOME!

  20. I have a black tub similar to your yellow one that I use for ice at parties. It would never have occurred to me to use it for anything else. Love that idea. Your wreath is gorgeous!

    You hit the jackpot on the pumpkins - wish I could find a deal like that!  Love the look of your space!!

  23. Really nice job on your entry. Kudos to Mom for her major score on the pumpkins!  Have to admit, the spiders are creeping me out. Too lifelike for me.  I'm not a big Halloween decor person.  But everything looks great!

  24. I absolutely love your front porch... I love all the decorations. My favorites are the spiders (even though I'm terrified of spiders) and the carved pumpkin. Great tip on the mums. Thanks.... Have a lovely day.

  25. It looks beautiful!!  You have just the right amount of decor!  The colors are all so pretty with your black door!

  26. I love it.  I want it!

    Snip the dead flowers off your mums, fertilize a bit & they will bloom again :)

  28. Wow, one penny!   Gives new meaning to "a penny well spent."   Love your front door!
