Front Door Harvest Decor

Posted on October 13, 2011 by 1 | 3 Comments

Of course this former city girl is in the dark when it comes to decorating the front porch for Fall. I didn't have such luxuries in NYC, sadly.  This fall I was reintroduced to the beauty of heirloom pumpkins, also known as Cinderella pumpkins down here in Dixie. I must admit that these are some of the cutest things I've ever seen. Ashley sent me to the downtown curb market a couple of weeks ago in search of some of these precious darlings for Parish.  If I had an unlimited budget, I'd have bought the farmer's entire stand. There were so many various shapes, sizes, and colors to choose from. Here are some of them basking in the early fall sun a few weeks ago at our Fall Free for All Sale.  Huge thank you again to everyone who came out!

(Not that there is anything wrong with those! What else do you use for carving on Halloween?) I did some searching via Pinterest (the greatest creativity source like, ever) and wanted to highlight some of the more interesting displays I found to give you an idea or two for decorating your front porch that will take you through Thanksgiving.

...and the acorn and walnut wreaths:

Ha, one thing at a time... :)  Fall is here and it is wonderful! Feel free to share some of your ideas with us here...we're always happy to have a few new ideas!

Hey Heather!
I found the wreath on Pinterest. Upon doing a more thorough search, it appears this particular wreath has either sold out or has been taken down, but I did a “burlap wreath” search on Etsy and found TONS of cute handmade burlap wreaths and they are all relatively inexpensive ($20-$60). Hope that helps a little!
Thanks again for reading us!
