The Rest of the Porch-Ready for Fall Ya’ll

My son and husband said this is my best porch decorating ever.  That makes me feel good because they don’t often have an opinion about such things.  I really like it too.  I might have to add some more pumpkins if I find a good deal somewhere.  One blogger mentioned good deals at Lowe’s so I need to go there.  Anyway, let’s get this show on the road.  Here’s the entire porch area and then I will break it down.



I posted about the metal containers yesterday.  You can see more pics and read about them here.

I love my arrangement by the front door. 


The 2 large mums were about $3 at Walmart and the little one was the same price.  I hope they stay pretty because they were cheaper than pumpkins this year. 




I found the baskets at Michaels.  They were 50% off and my sweet blogging friend Pat @ Gypsy Heart Blog sent me a 20% off sale items and entire purchase coupon so I got 70% off of the baskets!


I got 2 big natural colored ones and a little green one. 

Some nasty green wormy things that look like my cabbage leaves are eating big holes in the plants.


I finally found them last night and picked the ones I could find off.  Ok I talked my son and his friend into picking them off for me. 

I brought my autumn pillow back out to put on my bench and filled my containers with mums, a kale, and some pumpkins.



I found this little Kale plant at Walmart.  I like the ruffled leaves.


I put excelsior moss in the pots to help keep the moisture in the soil and because I thought it made the pots look more interesting.


Little pumpkin gourds helped to fill up the pots.  Some are real and some are faux.


I added a pie pumpkin to help fill one pot.  I might get some more of these to put in my flower bed.


I think these mums are a really pretty color.  They go well with the orange pumpkins.


And last but not least my good friend Jack is back.


He is a plug in pumpkin that I have had for over 15 years.  After Halloween I just turn him around so the plain back part of the pumpkin is showing. 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my fall porch.  Are you ready for fall at your house?
