My October Porch

I’m recycling a post from the past, my October porch 2016. This year I have a wreath and  2 potted yellow hibiscus shrubs but that year was a time for more fall decoration.  I hope you enjoy it.  My porch is hard to decorate as it is long and thin with no steps.  

 

The weather here in central Florida  is getting a little cooler with less humidity, but it’s still like summer in comparision to up north.  Highs still in the 80’s and mostly blue skies and white clouds. I’m looking forward to cooler weather in the next two months.

Fall Porch Ideas

No matter the size of your porch, you can decorate it with style.  Today we’ll discuss easy ways to embrace fall on your front porch. Most of the porches everyone loves are loaded with pumpkins.  Sometimes it looks like there is little room to walk into the home because of the amount of decorations. I personally prefer a simple approach, but we all can pick and choose what ideas we use. Just a reminder that it isn’t safe to put pumpkins and flowers in front of the door or filling most of the steps. That’s a trip hazard.   The goal is for a welcoming entry with easy access. Now, let’s explore some beautiful ideas.

A Simple Early Autumn Table

My home has many coastal elements. Every fall I am faced with decorating for autumn using my colors. I use more textures, tans, and browns. I add deeper toned colors as the season progresses.  I look for softer shades of typical fall colors. I also love using turquoise in the fall with tans, browns, and golden tones. Officially it is autumn on September 22nd, but today I’m adding a few coastal autumn colors in the dining room.

October Autumn Table

It’s fall in central Florida, and the big cold spell that went across the country brought slightly lower temperatures and a low humidity.  It’s been really beautiful days with highs in the low 80’s and maybe even 79 degrees F with blue skies.  We’re getting a little rain from the tropical stom in the Gulf going over Mexico, but it’s nothing bad.
