Fall Into Autumn…

Fall is just around the corner and in some parts of the country it’s starting to feel like it too.

(Although, here is Arizona it still feels like we are in the middle of summer.)

The other day a customer came into my store and announced that she was getting out all of her fall decorations to decorate her front porch. So in honor of her I thought that we would start sharing ideas of things that you can do at your own front door to get into the fall spirit.


How about something different than a wreath-decorating a mirror to hang from the front door?


I love the idea of  “guilded”  or adding metallic paint to your pumpkins. Do the same with small size pumpkins and gourds to make a swag for the front door or planters.

 (And in the next couple of weeks I will be showing our Bella Life readers how to do it!)


 Here’s a great way to fix up some old tin cans: decorate the cans with ribbon-fill cans with fresh or faux botanicals and hang with ribbon from your front door. How simple is this!


Another easy idea: find great containers or boxes to put live plants or flowers in.


Place  on the table next to your front porch chair and add a throw-sprinkle a few leaves around and you have the perfect vignette!

Finish it all off by placing a wreath on the side of the house.


Another great way to decorate your front door is with pumpkins….

You can’t go wrong if you you use pumpkins.


 Find some fun wire shelving: add carved pumpkins, blackbirds, mums and cornstalks.


Or for the more simple approach this urn idea….is simply elegant.


Stack fresh pumpkins in an urn-paint one or more of the pumpkins with a design and add some moss at the base, in between pumplins and on top.


Love the idea of using fake pumpkins to stack. Add some simple autumn leaves in-between layers.



How about making a pumpkin man?


And for the “over-achiever” front door decorator

Every idea you can possibly fit on a front porch including the kitchen table.

Happy Fall Decorating!
