outdoor fall decor...


Here's my simple outdoor decor for fall...
My summer pots were still looking nice with the cooler weather, so I brought a couple
 to our front patio, I like the bright pink with the orange. I bought a bale of hay when
 I was at Home Depot one day and brought out the plastic faux pumpkins, my urn
with the evergreen topiary and an old sign I've had forever.
 As much as I'd love the real deal I've learned my lesson over and over,
 sadly the squirrels make an ugly mess of pumpkins in no time, so we go faux!











Happy Fall, Friends!

It looks very pretty. I like the bale of hay and the pumpkin sign very much.

Looks wonderful! I really like the little pumpkins in the urn with the pink geranium! :)

Perfectly charming! I use faux pumpkins too, in our lamppost bed near the street, if teenage boys decide to explode some pumpkins, mine just roll and I pick them up and put them back in the bed!

Pam...such a great display for Fall...perfect!!...Your planters are beautiful!!...
So funny, I have just started to place a few things out on my porch and I have this little pot of pink geraniums that are doing well and cannot bear to toss it...so it is next to the fall plants too!!...Have a wonderful day!

Pam your entrance looks beautiful dressed for fall!
My summer plants are still thriving too, I didn't have the heart to pull them out so I poked a few pumpkins in mine too. Awesome shots!

I like the little pumpkin peeking out of your window box. Poor squirrels, you tricked them and took away their treat! Seriously, it's beautiful as usual.

So pretty!
I too hang on to my summer pots as long as possible so incorporating them with the fall touches makes sense. Who wants to spend all that money on Mums that only last a month tops!

Holly said...

Can I come over? Your pots are amazingly lush and beautiful Pam - I love the sweet potato vine spilling over and the pretty geraniums. Geraniums are my absolute favorite - they're so hardy and I love the shape and color of the flowers and leaves. You're making me excited to get my porch together, so today is the day - I'm going to get my fixins. Our pumpkins haven't gotten too destroyed the past few years but I always hesitate to put them out there. We'll see what happens this year.

Nancy said...

It looks beautiful Pam. I love that sweet potato vine with its chartreuse green trailing down the pots.

Andrea said...

I can't believe how great your flowers still look! Mine died months ago. Love your new fall look.

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Looks so welcoming! Love those pillows!
Great idea with the faux pumkins..very clever! They look like the real McCoy!

Pam,
Your fall porch looks beautiful and I would have never taken those pumpkins for faux! They do look great with the bright pink. I did go with the real thing, but it's just a matter of time before the squirrels take over. My yard reads like a 1st grade book...the squirrels are busily working away...saving for winter. It's entertaining...until they start digging in my freshly potted mums.

Lori said...

The window box you designed for me is still doing well and too beautiful to tear out. Now I know what to do- just add my squirrel-proof pumpkins! Thanks for the idea, my pumpkin!

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

It looks great. Love the pumpkins mixed with the flowers.

Leslie said...

I love it Pam! I have hay too and am trying to figure out what to do with it :) so many options!!

Love all your pumpkins!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

So pretty and inviting, as always! Love the color combo.

Karah @ thespacebetweenblog said...

Happy Fall to you!! If I lived back in the north this is exactly how I imagine my fall outdoor decor would look. Love your arrangement. The touches of black and white with the orange are perfect!!

charmaine said...

Very pretty! I have yet to get some pumpkins.
Happy Fall to you!

Robin said...

Oh Pam your decor looks so fun and festive. Makes me want to get something outside of my house - NOW!

Lisa at Shine Your Light said...

I am loving how you incorporated the hot pink geraniums into a fall vignette! I have one in my front pot that is doing so well, and who knew it would pair so beautifully with pumpkins? Your outdoor area looks so cheerful and welcoming, Pam!

Sheila @sZinteriors said...

Is this ever beautiful, Pam! I love the pumpkin tucked in around the geranium - such an unexpected surprise. And your bench vignette is lovely, too!

Brandy~GreyLaneHome said...

Pam it's gorgeous. Your pillows and bench are so pretty. I think I should put some pillows on my front bench for the kids.

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...
