Our Outdoor Fall Decor


We're taking things outside today for a view of our front porch. We picked up these colorful and textured pumpkins at the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago, and they are my favorite ever. I mean, the color of the two orange ones is striking! 

To accent those, we did an orange plant potted in my DIY gold leaf pot and hung a welcome sign to top it off. Simple, sweet and on the cheap. That's our kind of front porch!






I think we decided against carving pumpkins this year. Is that bad?! Do you carve pumpkins or leave them like ours? 

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  6. Pretty! I really like that darker orange pumpkin.

    We carve our pumpkins a couple of days before Halloween. Regardless of if we carved or left uncarved, putting out pumpkins is feeding the squirrels in our neighborhood. We learned the hard way when we moved in, with eaten uncarved pumpkins, and had to buy new ones since we had a crying little boy who was sad about his eaten pumpkin.

  8. I did the same thing with the terra cotta pots and am loving the way they look with my fall pumpkins. I think I'm skipping the carving this year as well. I'm all about the paint.

  10. I was thinking the same thing for this year. No carving for me... I think they last longer this way anyway :)
