Day Two of Fall Around the House Party….Upper Back Porch Decorated for Fall

We love sitting out on our upper back porch as it is very cozy.

However, I must say that Fall is my favorite time to enjoy the porch.

To sip my first cup of coffee in the crisp mornings of Fall…

…..watching the day begin with a gorgeous sunrise.

While decorating the porch, I had flashbacks of my home in the 70’s….

…..decorated in the colors of rust, greens and blues.

I am fortunate to be close to a wonderful Farmer’s Market

…..where you can find every conceivable pumpkin or gourd.

So I was happy to be able to buy and decorate with pumpkins from local farms.

I was on visual overload…so many gorgeous pumpkins to choose from…

…..along with beautiful Fall bouquets and mums.

Bouquets of magnolia leaves and hydrangeas caught my eye at the Market…

…..I will definitely be a “frequent visitor” at this booth.

  2. You have created such a warm and inviting Autumn porch….when is tea being served? I wish I lived near that farmer’s market…it looks amazing!
    What is that pink hanging plant, some type of air plant….very cool!

  3. Shirley, Your porch is beautiful with all your mums, pumpkins & pillows! The perfect spot to spend a fall morning or afternoon! I’m wild over your felted pumpkin pillow 🙂 Our temperatures are climbing again after a teaser of cooler weather over the weekend. I’m looking forward to sweater weather!

  8. Girl, you have outdone yourself. I so wish I had this nice porch to sit on and enjoy the fresh air and outside sounds. Love the layering in the corner and all the cute pillows. Simply stunning. I wish I had a close farmer’s market. I still need mums.

  9. Love the small white pumpkins on the vintage stand. I’d love to come over and have coffee on the porch with you. Miss you.

  10. Shirley,

    I completely understand why you want to drink your coffee on this porch. It looks perfect. Now, will you come do mine???

  11. Sandra White says:

    Absolutely gorgeus. Love all those beautiful pillows and pumpkins. Fantastic photography, as well… So happy that you had a great trip to France.

  12. Your fall porch is beautiful Shirley! Can you come and help me with mine now!?;)Happy October!:)

  13. Oh Shirley, your upper porch is just stunning and so beautifully decked out for fall! I adore the way you make decorating and attention to every little detail look so effortless! I’m ready for a visit… let’s sit on the porch and have a nice long chat! xo

  14. Just beautiful, Shirley! I love your tea cart and plant stand. You’ve really brought Fall to your porch and it must be a pleasure to sit out here.

  15. How I can relate to your flashback to the 70’s. My parents’ house was awash with clashing patterns in these colours. I think this is why I developed an aversion to patterns, that I am only just getting over! Your porch looks gorgeous though, very elegant, and I can understand why you enjoy sitting there.

  16. Stunning, Shirley! You know I have always loved this porch and your furniture! I love all the different colors of pumpkins! I have had the hardest time finding anything, but orange here. I love the Fall touches and vignettes on your porch! It’s so inviting!

    I have always loved your porch and it looks especially inviting decorated for fall. I know you will soon enjoy some crisp mornings sipping your coffee out there. The new pillows are very pretty. I also have had a deja vu moment of our homes way back when. I decorated my great room with the typical fall colors this year and a pop of teal. Love it! Happy fall, ya’ll.

  18. Shirley, this is the perfect Fall porch! I love all of your pumpkins and mums; and the pillows add such a nice touch. The patterns are beautiful! You just have the magic touch!

  20. Hi Shirley, I did enjoy my visit to your porch and would love to sit there with all your wonderful fall decor. I think my favorite item may be the small pumpkins on the vintage plant stand (or maybe the stand) or the white pumpkins with the hydrangea and pine cones (I’m definitely stealing that idea!!) or perhaps the little touch of blue in the planter holding the mums. Just lovely! Linda

  21. Shirley, I don’t even know where to begin! It’s all so gorgeous! You’ve got such a great talent-your porch looks so inviting and comfortable! 🙂

Your stack of umpkins is perfection and I LOVE that little felt pillow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want one too:):) I miss our little deck off our master bedroom in the old house. HAPPY FALL, Shirley!!!! XO

  27. Shirley, your porch is just stunningly beautiful! I love how your pillows coordinate with all the beautiful colors of fall that you’ve used. I remember that little felt pillow from last year and I think it’s the best fall pillow I’ve ever seen! Those little pie pumpkins look so darling in your vintage plant stand! Your photographs are amazing, too! But I didn’t see a single thing that looked like it came from France! Hehe!

  32. Ok Shirley you have left me speechless here and I am never speechless. Just ask my husband, LOL!! You have out done yourself. Everything is just perfect and the collection of pumpkins is outstanding. We had good choices here but nothing like what you have, have mercy. I am still trying to get my girlfriend motivated for us to get going on her home.
