Fall Porch Tour - Traditional Fall Porch Decorations


I'm so excited to share my fall porch decorations with you.  It's getting cold here in New England and I'm trying not to think about putting all my pretty porch furniture away for the winter.  I'm going to get every moment of enjoyment that I can out of my lovely Victorian porch before the cold winter weather takes over.


I love my old house and have been collecting a hodgepodge of antiques over the years for it.  My porch reflects the different things I've gathered over the last decade.  I have mostly old things but I change it up with some new items like the white garden seat I bought this summer.




I've read it's good Feng Shui to have two large heavy objects flanking your front entrance like guardians.  My ornate white metal urns remind me of soldiers standing on guard.  My husband purchased them for me as a gift so I really love them.

 


 
 
 




I couldn't resist this goofy painted pumpkin.  It looks like he has Pepperoni Pizza for a nose!


I put a few gourds and little pumpkins in my TJ Maxx bargain find lantern I purchased for $7 on clearance!

 
 
This old gray metal planter is another gift from my sweet husband.  I saw it at junk shop in town and he went back and got it for my birthday!  I'm so lucky.
 

 

 
 
The little cement bunny is in memory of my pet house rabbit, Ernie.  We had him for 9 years and he was litter-box trained.  They make great pets, are very smart and social creatures and shouldn't be left outside alone.
 


The fountain runs in the summer.  We empty it once it gets too cold.  :-(  I love the sound of water.  It's so relaxing and helps block other sounds.

  


 

 

 I hope you've enjoyed my porch tour!  Have a wonderful fall!
