“Southern Farmhouse Style with a French Twist!”

Hi Housepitality Design readers! I’m Kim and I blog at Savvy Southern Style.
While my friend Shirley is recuperating I thought I would share how I have decorated my small front porch
for fall in the past. I would love a big southern porch like Shirley’s,
but I have a small stoop. That doesn’t mean I can’t dress it up.

This was my first time styling my porch for fall in 2011. Before blogging I really didn’t think much about it,
 but found out it’s fun adding some fall decor to the outside.
In 2012 I made a welcome basket full of fall foliage.
Layers of flowers, fall plants, pumpkins and a door swag were used in 2013.
I even tucked a pretty mum in a vintage apple basket and placed it on the bench in the front yard.
In 2014 I was part of a blog hop and wanted to do something different.
Something no one else would think of and I did it with Mr. Savvy’s help.
Instead of the normal wreath, swag or basket that most people add to a door
I wanted to hang a basket of apples and the idea worked out perfectly.
This was my favorite and apparently I didn’t share the front porch last year.
Instead I concentrated on my back deck that had been transformed last summer.
I’m looking forward to adding fall style this year.
I hope I’ve given y’all some new ideas.
Thanks Shirley for having me!
And thanks Kim for being here and sharing your beautiful Fall porches from years past,
so that we  can obtain many beautiful ideas for our own porches!
Have a most beautiful day everyone!
