Fall Porch Decorating. The Final Chapter-The Bench

Fall is definitely here today.  My hands got cold when I was completing my porch.  My favorite area on the porch is where I keep my bench.  It always looks best in the fall.  It’s a great place for Halloween costume picture taking too, but I think my son is too big to dress up this year.  :( 

I made a pillow for my bench that I just love.  I keep wanting to bring it inside because I like it so much.   


Isn’t it so cute?  I made it with some left over drop cloth material and freezer paper which is my new best friend. 

Wanna see something really cool?  I can turn my pillow around in December and see this.


2 for 1 pillows!  Love that. 

I bought more traditional type pumpkins for this area.




I wanted to add another pumpkin to the the pot on the right side, but I have been growing this ivy since May and I don’t have the heart to remove it. 


That’s a solar light inside in the middle if you missed that post.

I use the same leaf garland every year and wrap it around my bench.  I potted a couple of more mums that will look so much better when they bloom. 


Finally the entire porch is fall ready.  I think. :)


I do have one more thing I plan to try and make and I might get some more pumpkins for the chair on the left and the brick ledge on the right. 

Have you bought your pumpkins yet?  The pumpkin man told me they all get picked at the same time so there is no benefit waiting until later.

Happy Fall.
