House to Home Series: Fall Front Porch Decor
Hey y'all! I know, I know. Lets not even get into how M.I.A. I've been on here, short story, #LifeHappened. We'll chit chat about that later, lets talk about how its the beginning of November and fall has been playing peek-a-boo here in Virginia. For this Cali girl that's totally fine, I don't like anything about the cold except for Uggs and hot chocolate, so this warmish weather is cool with me.
As some of you may know, we moved into our house last year and I've been on this year long journey to define what our "style" is. This is super hard for me because I don't feel like I fit into any one category, I like bits and pieces of different styles, so I'm leaning towards mashing it all up and coming up with something that's unique to me (I'm leaning towards modern boho farmhouse, but don't ask me exactly what that looks like lol)
As I'm trying to figure out what's going on inside our house, I didn't let that stop me from decorating the outside. I don't think I'm the girl that'll decorate for each specific holiday, but I knew I wanted to spruce our front porch up and give it all the fall vibes. I knew I wanted pumpkins so we found a small local pumpkin patch to get some from. It was super chill and we were the only ones there. I thought DJ would've been into picking the pumpkins and exploring the patch, but nah, he wasn't feeling it.
From there, it was just a matter of gathering all my other pieces and putting everything together. My mama friend Elizabeth from emarielivinghappily.com inspired me to DIY a wreath for my door, that was my favorite part. It was super easy, one glue stick and a Chill Mix playlist later, I was done. I wasn't really sure what look I was going for, I just naturally gravitated to your typical fall colors, maroons, greens, oranges, etc. I got a regular cardboard H from Michaels and covered in spray adhesive and two different shades of glitter (this picture doesn't do it much justice, the glitter is POPPIN when you come to my door) my burlap bow needs a little work but for a first timer, she'll do lol.
After that, it was just a matter of placing the pumpkins, the hay I got from Michaels, and the mums I got super cheap at the grocery store. My focal point was just right in front of our door, we have lots of greenery off to the left that would've covered any décor so I didn't really mind.
This didn't take much time at all, especially since my husband was home, I was able to put everything together in an afternoon. I'm pretty happy with how it all came out and I'm already looking forward to switching it up next year. Now, lets bring on Christmas!
Until next time!
