Thursday’s Theme: Pumpkins on the Porch

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

August is ending, leaves are changing and the kids are back in school – autumn is certainly upon us! It’s no secret that we’ve been in fall mode for over a month now, but it’s time to kick off a series of harvest season posts here on the blog. We hope you’re able to draw some inspiration for your own fall decorating as well as share how you’re accenting your home for fall; indoors or out.

For today, we’re featuring four creative ways to display pumpkins on your front porch, back deck, walkway or any outdoor space. Let’s get into it.

One of the top things that make fall decorating so fun is the simplicity;
nature basically does the decorating for us, we just have to add our own
personal touches. If you have outdoor planters that you fill with autumn
flowers, or have plants still thriving from summertime, give them a harvest
look with pumpkins. Smaller sizes work the best, and we recommend
using the classic bright orange variety. Throwing in a couple of extra gourds
adds even more welcoming color and texture.

Of course, you don’t need planters to achieve this look.
A wicker basket, wood trug and similar home accents
filled with pumpkins all offer a bountiful look to outdoor
living spaces. Add hay, straw or even fallen leaves for added charm.

Now this is creative.
Put a witchy spin on your front porch pumpkins by arranging them in a trellis
(find it here) – just stack them on top of each other until its full. Add a pointed
hat and voila! A Halloween decorative that works for Autumn, too.

Last but certainly not least, create a stack of pumpkins that showcases
initials, a painted design or even your address. Planter not required.
