Dressing the back porch for Fall was on the agenda this past weekend.
Because you can see the upper back porch from most of the rooms in the main living area,
I needed to coordinate the colors.
I recently dressed the dining room in traditional Fall colors, which you can see HERE
and decided to go with those same colors, including the blues.
I found some neutral pumpkin pillow covers at Pottery Barn on clearance.
The perfect shades of brown for the patio furniture cushions.
I relocated the vintage screen door from the media room kitchen to the upper porch,
as a backdrop for the Singer table.
I combined all of the colors I was using on the porch
in this screen door area of the porch.
As I was styling this area for Fall,
I was actually thinking about what I can do with this area for Christmas!
Talk about not living in the moment!
Happy with this little corner of the porch. A happy place.
A vintage stool helps elevate the potted mum.
Still so very happy with the Chinoiserie outdoor carpet from Frontgate.
I recently took another trip to my favorite locally owned garden center
and purchased a few more mums. The ones I bought at the same garden center
a month ago for my Fall front porch are still going strong.
Have a large gourd or mega squash? Put a bow around it!
On the other side of the French doors is the Master Bedroom.
The opposite side is the dining room.
I love African Violets and always have them inside my home.
However, they never seemed to re-bloom. So I took my violets and placed them on the back porch.
Within a couple of weeks, they were blooming again with a vengeance!
I am assuming they love the light out there.
I also have been babying this Jade plant.
My friend JoAnn has a huge Jade plant, so I am trying to grow this one to a come close to hers,
but I need her green thumb!
So here’s to another porch decorated for Fall.
While I was decorating this porch, my hubby was at baseball practice 2 /12 hours away.
He is preparing for a Baseball (not softball) tournament soon. Looks like he may be pitching
however, he can play any base. The old guy can still play!
So the “Boys of Summer” are now moving to the “Boys of Fall” and
another ballpark where I will leave my mark on the bleachers.
Or is it that the bleachers will be leaving their mark on me!
The leaves are just starting to turn on certain trees here.
So looking forward to the colorful days of Fall.
In my former house, in another state, if you asked me if the leaves were turning yet,
I would have to say that maybe the tips of the palm fronds are turning brown. 🙂
Have a beautiful day!!!
