Just in time for the weekend. Some inspiration before you head out to the local garden and decor stores (If you haven't finished up already)!

The last three months of the year are my absolute FAVORITE. Bring on the reasons to decorate and host a gathering (and eat and drink and be merry!)! Starting with a warm and  welcoming autumn inspired front porch. For the fall at least, it seems that there is somewhat of a formula - a pretty wreath for the door, some potted fall flowers, and lets not forget PUMPKINS (we do our best to make them last all October until after Thanksgiving) and don't forget to add some of your personal style and flair. Some inspiration to get us started:

I love a cozy little bistro small enough for a nook or corner - its a perfect fit for a front porch. With its own autumn inspired centerpiece, it instantly transforms the area into a welcoming space.

I'm seriously considering adding a a porch swing. Add a blanket like this one (and some hot chocolate) and there will be no reason to go inside.

Some mums in galvanized pots like these are definitely an autumn staple.

For a modern farmhouse flair add some multicolored leaves and tools from the garden. If you don't already have one, add this pitchfork and apple picker to your collection.

Some hanging lanterns or even some placed on the ground are a classic look that can be used year round. Fill them with candles, pumpkins, even pine cones for the fall and winter months. And in my opinion, no front door is complete with out a wreath.  I like to change it up with each season - A berry wreath in autumn colors   or gathered maple leaf wreath  are on my list to add to the collection this year.

happy decorating!
