Another Porch Dressed for Fall

Another porch?….yes, I actually have three…two on the back . . upper and lower . . .

~ ~ and one in the front.

Today, I present the upper porch with simple dressings for Fall.

Pillows with Fall colors are placed on the loveseat . . perfect for snuggling . . .

I decorated this vintage plant stand in the same way I did last year…I loved the way it looked.

Fall mums and plants fill the garden stand . .


Created this pumpkin topiary from the wonderful pumpkins at the Farmers Market.

I am amazed at how long these pumpkins last.

Sometimes I feel like I am in a tree house…surrounded by many trees.

And of course my favorite time of the year would be when the leaves turn brilliant colors.

Not so long ago, Kim, Mary Alice and I were sitting here enjoying a glass of wine . . .

It’s a little porch…but just large enough for cozy conversations and enjoying the view.

Can’t wait for the leaves to turn!!! ….

Have a fabulous Fall day!!

  1. Beautiful Shirley and such a cozy spot to read or enjoy a beverage! I can just imagine the view when the leaves turn or the dogwoods are popping!

  2. What a wonderful porch to sit on and just relax and look out, Shirley. I love how you did up the plant stand with the pumpkins.

  3. It’s gorgeous, Shirley! I especially love how your pumpkin topiary pulls out the colors of the print behind it–perfect match! What a wonderful retreat you’ve created.

  4. And what a delightful time it was to sit out there on your beautiful porch with wonderful friends and an amazing view!! Hard to beat!

  5. Looks so relaxing Shirley. Please show us your trees when the colors change.

  6. Shirley, it looks sooo cozy! I can imagine sitting there enjoying the beautiful Fall foliage.


  7. So many pretty things! I love the pumpkin stand!!! Happy October 1st!

  8. Two words sums it up; just lovely.

  9. Great job as always Shirley. Love that galvanized bucket from Tennessee and the color pumpkins you found for the topiary.


  10. What a great porch – to have coffee there in the morning or a nice cocktail before bed and look at the lovely yard. Perfect so enjoy the view. I would be there early in the am.
    Have a great weekend.

    Love the porch and pumpkins. I am waiting not so patiently for the leaves to start turning. Post a picture when your leaves start to turn. Take care.

  12. Love your porch!! I love this time of year and that would be the perfect spot to sit and enjoy this wonderful weather!!!

  13. It is beautiful, Shirley! I know you enjoy spending time up there. I am so hoping to get to rock in our old pool area and make it a patio. I love my front porch, but the afternoon sun can be bright and hot. I would love to be sitting out at the patio and watch the family of deer that like to visit our yard, quietly come out of the woods, and sneak a few apples off our tree.

  14. Loved enjoying wine with y’all. Let’s do it again!!!

  15. Love your decorated porch! Question-are you worried your beautiful pillows will be ruined by the squirrels? They are so destructive in Maine that I can’t leave anything soft out…any suggestions?

  16. So gorgeous Shirley! I love this porch. It is so charming and cozy looking per season. You know Fall though is always my fave!

  17. Oh Shirley I love your porch and you have it decorated so beautifully.

  18. Every spot in your home is gorgeous! LOVE this sweet porch. I want to have wine with your too!

  19. So beautiful…..what a lucky girl you are to have three porches!!!
    Have a great weekend my friend!!!

  20. Perfect spot for sure. Love a cozy porch and yours is beautiful.

  21. So beautiful and inviting!

  22. Bravissimo! So pretty!!! ANd to have 3 porches to decorate…pure heaven!!! I know there are times when I have 2 or 3 design ideas in mind that I’d like to use, but only one porch. It sucks when you have to pick just one. You lucky girl!!!

    I love the stacked pumpkins!!!!! The bluish one rocks, and I love the generous stem on the top one.

    That’s quite a fancy armillary you’ve got there, too. I have a couple of those, and I would collect them if I thought I had enough places to put them!

    I see what you mean by feeling you’re in a tree house. There’s certainly no dearth of trees around your house!!! Gorgeous! I would NOT want to be the guy on the business end of the rake in fall, though! 🙂

  23. Another gorgeous display…

  24. So beautiful! It looks like right out of a magazine! I love those pillows. Looks like a great place to have a glass of wine with your girlfriends…

    It’s so beautiful Shirley! Do you have to worry about the weather with the cushions or whats on the patio getting tossed around?
