Making my autumn porch welcoming

Since we'll be welcoming a lot of visitors soon I needed to add some autumn charm to the front porch. 

The green cushion is one of four I found at Target for 50% off.  I wasn't sure about the color, but after getting it home, I discovered I already had these pillows (thrift store find from Pier 1) and a lantern that would coordinate nicely.  I really like the punch of green in an otherwise neutral colored porch.  You can't tell from the photo, but the pillows have the same bright green in the appliqued leaves.

In the corner of the porch I plopped some grasses and leaves into a spray painted bucket and added my "Come Sit On My Porch" sign.  The blue of the sign is a nice contrast with the orange of the arrangement. 


  1. I love your bench and sign. You just can't go wrong sitting on the porch! SOMEDAY I'm going to have a front porch that's more than 3 concrete steps, that you can actually sit on. In my dream house :-) Looks like you're about ready for the wedding!

  2. I love the green cushion on the bench with the pillows! In fact, I bought a green cushion like that at Target back in the spring. I know your guests will love your comfy porch! Can't wait till the wedding!

  3. Your porch looks so inviting... perfect for welcoming Autumn guests!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
