Whew, y’all....we are super excited to share the details on this year’s Fall front porch! It doesn’t matter that the first few weeks of the season here in TN were hotter than a burnt marshmallow sitting in the middle of the Sahara Desert, we have been soaking up all the good pumpkin vibes and mum feels! And we have been ESPECIALLY loving the cozy, homey feel our new Nate & Lane Swingbed is giving us. It. Is. So. Beautiful! So grab your pumpkin spice latte (or your basic Fall poison) and let’s get this show on the road!
FARMHOUSE FALL FRONT PORCH Pumpkin Shopping: This is where it all begins, folks, and as a mom-daughter team we’ve been going to the pumpkin patch together for ages. Even as the years have passed and now that we are business partners it just gets more and more fun!
We have several local farm stands available to us, all with great selections. But our favorite is Triple A Farms in Rockvale, TN (pictured)
My vision for this year was to do a neutral Fall palette with black. I went into it thinking I would do white and gray pumpkins and gourds, but when I was at the farm and saw all the green...I knew that was it! And to make sure I got exactly what I needed, I used by hubby’s truck as a mock front door - styling everything around it. Ha ha! It saved a lot of time in the long run!
Our dog, Willow, helping out Michaela - because someone has to strategically place things so I can say “A little to the left...now swap it with the smaller one...back to the right...perfect!” Getting this porch together was THE most fun, and honestly came together super quickly! THE REVEAL!! We could not be happier with the outcome!
This old farmhouse porch looks pretty good all cleaned up. We scattered some white pumpkins along the front with mums in the concrete containers. This softens the front step area. We wanted to create a symmetrical look on both sides of the door without it appearing as a mirror image. To achieve that we used corn stalks, the gigantic white pumpkins and mums in galvanized olive buckets. Then we filled in with a variation of pumpkins and gourds. This is one of our favorite vantage points! By the way did I share that the cornstalks were at my husband’s request? He loves that look for Fall and it was definitely a good call on his part!
