Fall Porch Ideas

Here are a few things you can bring outside to add to your fall displays.

Pile up some warm wool blankets to wrap up in on those chilly days.

Add some pumpkins for colour.

Fill an old tool box with some fall asters, gourds, ornamental peppers, and decorative kale.

Build a tower of pumpkins.  
I used a wire obelisk that I had in the garden.  It was easy to pass the pumpkins and gourds through the open wires.  
There are wires on the bottom of the obelisk to stick into the ground.  This prevents the tower from toppling over.


Some of the pumpkins and gourds are sort of wedged in so that they don't fall out. 
I used a pot which had flowers still blooming.  Some of the plants had already died off in the middle, so it was a convenient place to place the tower.

My original plan was to use a tomato cage for the tower, but, the wires are not close enough together to keep the pumpkins from falling out.

Fill a flower box with fall mums, ornamental peppers, and a croton which was left over from summer.  I left the plants in their pots and placed them into the window box.  I then added some small squash and gourds.

I try to re-use whatever plant material I can and work it into my display. 

I also used a few potted mums for added colour.

As much as possible, I stuck to my colour scheme of purple and orange with a little white and green.


Decorating outside the home in fall is fun and you can extend the growing season by filling in some bare areas with fall plants.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. I adore your toolbox -- I need one of those! And the obelisk is fabulous! All great ideas.

    I think you were the Barbara that came to Gypsy today and left a couple of wonderful comments, for which I thank you -- and if not, I thank you anyway for all the beauty here!

    1. I did visit your blog. I am behind on my reading and trying to catch up.

    1. When I was styling the porch last week it was 90F. We sure didn't need those blankets, but, I love to have them where it is cold out.

  3. Love the tower of pumpkins - great idea. Stopping by from create and celebrate :)
