Fall on the Front Porch

This post is sponsored by Tree Classics

Last year, I partnered with Tree Classics on all things Christmas showing how I used some of their products in my home and this year, we are collaborating again for the Holiday season, starting a little early with Fall.

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t do a ton of Fall decorating. While the rest of blogland is exploding in Fall decor all over the house inside and outside, I just do not go overboard with Fall.  I didn’t do any big Fall tours this year, so I haven’t even decorated my mantel for Fall.  So, I’ll just say that leaves me more time to travel and spend time with my family and friends.  I know it’s a big thing in the blogosphere, but at this stage in my life, I just don’t need to do it all.  I love this time of year for the sheer exhilaration of Fall weather and the crispness that it brings.  I intend to fully take advantage of that!


But, today I’m sharing a bit of my front porch and I did add some Fall touches to it.  I’m working with Tree Classics again as a Brand Ambassador for Christmas and this year, they asked me to lead a Fall wreath tour with a few blog friends.  I’m kicking that off today with my front porch refresh for Fall.  I hardly ever buy pumpkins for my house, but since I was adding a pretty Fallish wreath to my front door, I didn’t want the porch to feel bare and unwelcoming.  I can leave this up until Christmas (well, unless those pumpkins rot really fast!).


Pretty orange mums in my front porch planters will add a lot of curb appeal I think.


I picked up a few pumpkins with different shades of orange and gray/green, which look nice with my house and door colors.


I simply stacked them on the stairs and didn’t get too carried away.


The wreath I chose from Tree Classics is the Countryside Christmas 24″ wreath.


When we were talking Fall front door wreath, I knew this one would be perfect, with the orange tones in the acorns, along with real pinecones and grapevine balls.


I love the colors in these acorns, just enough pop of orange and yellow/green shades.


Even though I have a clear glass storm door in place, I still love to hang a wreath.  The door does help to keep out the weather and it just feels nice to have that protection, so I use a clear suction cup hanger to hang my wreaths and it works great on my door.


While I was at it, my old front door mat was looking really shabby, so I picked up a new one with some Fall flavors.  It picks up the blue of my door and has a Fallish feel too.  It might be nice to switch out this mat from season to season. The other one was looking bad!


The added curb appeal of a pretty Fall wreath, along with orange mums and pumpkins will be a fun addition to my front porch. Are you doing a lot of decorating for Fall or taking the simple and easy route like I am?  This is just enough for me, simple and pretty and colorful to welcome my guests!

For more Fall wreaths on the front door, I hope you’ll go and visit the other girls in this little blog hop. They will be sharing all week and I’d love for you to visit them too! They will be sharing one per day all this week, so I’ll add their links as they go live each day back to this post.

  1. Love that pretty rug by the front door Rhoda. I did not do a lot of decorating outside this year. I actually found a pretty wooden pumpkin at Hobby Lobby and put it by the door along with my fall wreath and called it a day!! I did do a few more things inside but pared back from what I usually do. I am going to change some things out after Halloween and focus moe on Thanksgiving then.

  2. Looks good. At first glance I thought the wreath looks too Christmasy but then I noticed the fall accents. Have you thought of adding a fall bow, maybe a burlap one?

    • HI, Kathy, a bow would look good, but I sort of like it very simple for this time of year. I save up for Christmas will do more for that holiday!

    • Hi Rhoda,
      Is your wreath inside your storm door or on the outside?

    • Nancy it’s on the outside of the glass storm door, I use a clear suction cup holder.

  3. Um, that is not a Fall wreath, it’s Christmas even with orange bulbs. If you’re going to display “free”items perhaps you should wait until the appropriate season they represent. Nothing about that wreath says Fall.

  4. Looks beautiful! Great idea to use the suction cups for hanging the wreath! I may have to borrow that idea. Such a clean look!

  5. Love the decor on the porch. The pumpkins should last a good while if the skin does not get broken.

  6. A most gorgeous wreath and front porch dressed for Fall!

  7. Fall is my fav so I am making the effort to add more decor lately. Love the wreath and it is fall. Last time I checked evergreen trees were just that, green all year long, lol.
