Purple Fall Front Porch

Sometimes it feels silly to be blogging about home decor, especially with all the horrific events that have happened lately. But maybe my blog is a temporary escape from the news for some of you, or 5 minutes of frivolous fun and relaxation. So I’ll keep sharing, but I just wanted to say I’m praying for everyone who has been affected by these awful hurricanes and the heartbreaking tragedy in Vegas as well. I’m hugging my family extra tight these days and counting blessings.

I promised you all last week I was going to finish up my fall porch to share today, and it’s done! Well done enough for the blog, soon my kiddos will be adding their yearly jack-o-lantern masterpieces to the pumpkin pile. Even though carving pumpkins totally grosses me out. The Mr. is in charge of this event every year, because I can’t handle the slime.

I wanted to have color out here still, but I didn’t feel oranges would work well with our siding color. I decided on different shades of purple this year, with a few faux orange florals thrown in. Although the Mr. pointed out if I did all yellow mums next time, we would have the perfect U of M decor scheme for football season…

just what I always dreamed of :)

I  wasn’t ready to transplant my hydrangeas just yet, so the purple mums played nicely with those also.

I picked up some of these cute pumpkins while I was at Trader Joe’s grocery shopping. They are so much more fun than traditional orange pumpkins, even though my kids were horrified I actually paid for such “ugly” looking pumpkins.

I finally found a box of missing fall decor from our old house in the pool house, so I added in a few more faux leaf sprigs to the window boxes too.

That’s probably about the extent of my fall decor this year, but I did do a full fall home tour 2 years ago in our old home. It is still full of fun ideas, so if you need more inspiration check it out here. I’m trying to concentrate my creative mojo towards finishing the kids bedrooms instead this year. So hopefully I’ll be able to share those soon!
