I loved styling our fall porch with decor and love these colors! You too can add faux fall florals to your porch with these fall porch decor ideas.
I love to decorate our back porch. And why is that? I think the colors of the brick, the yard, and the sunshine always make my photos look good (it’s not me!). I have so much fun adding fall porch decor that I now add decor out here every season. We haven’t spent as much time out here lately because of the heat. And the mosquitos!
Seriously, why do we suddenly have so many mosquitos? We have never seen anything like it! But the evenings are cooling off and I can’t wait to dine out here nightly. Because cooler air means fewer mosquitos.
Today I am part of a wonderful group of 2019 Seasons of Home bloggers who are sharing their porch decor ideas for fall. Scroll to the bottom of my post to see everything they have created.
This gorgeous wreath on the fireplace is from Balsam Hill and it’s from last year. I had a bit of trouble hanging it. I used copper-colored wire and strung it from the lattice on each side of the fireplace. You can’t see the wire which means my efforts were a success.
I found the wicker basket at the Ventura Vintage Flea Market last week. It cost me only $5 and I love how it looks filled with pink pumpkins! All I did was fill the basket full of towels, add some faux eucalyptus and top it with a few pumpkins. The basket is perfect for fall porch decor.
I made the centerpiece using faux flowers from TJMaxx and an old sap bucket I bought at a flea market a few years ago. It’s a simple arrangement and I love it. Now it’s time to share a trick I use when I make flower arrangements. I would love to know if any of you do this too.
These florals came with magnolia leaves and the most gorgeous faux hydrangeas. They are very tall and even though the bucket I used is short, I don’t cut the stems.
I bend them instead.
I measure along the side of the bucket to determine the eight and then bend the stems. I often just create a triangle and fit each stem in the vase. Please note, the only time this doesn’t work is if you want to use a glass vase. A glass vase with bent stems would look very odd!
I don’t bend the stems too tight because I want to be able to use these flowers in a tall vase. I try to preserve the stem so that when I “unbend it”, it still looks great.
I do the same thing with the stems of the flowers.
Within minutes, my bucket is complete with flowers. Isn’t it wonderful? The colors of the hydrangeas get me every time!
In case you are wondering, the offwhite cloth table runner is actually a rug from Ikea. It cost $8.
If you look closely, you can actually see the copper wire I used to hang the wreath in the photo below. Copper is a much better color to use on brick than green floral wire.
I would love to know what you think about the fall porch decor I added to our back porch.
