Front porch ideas!

Fall is offically here and I wanted to show you a bit of what I have going on.
The front borders certainly look like the season.


I leave my spent hydrangea blooms on the shrubs for interest.
And scatter a few orange leaves....
And pumpkins.....
Grapevine with orange lights...

And a silly metal Jack-o-Lantern.

  1. This is a wonderful entry. I love welcoming porches as well. Do you read Southern Living Magazine? They always have the porches I am super jealous of. Your front landscaping is wonderful.

    Happy Spring and I look forward to watching that front landscaping of yours grow!

  2. Hi Brooke- your ideas are beautiful. Your post is something I needed to get more inspired about my own porch. It is 20 x 5.5 ft and that isn't deep enough to do much with. Maybe some cute rockers and nice plantings in pots. I would kill for your porch.

  3. I love the blue and yellow room. It looks so fresh and inviting. I have a small front porch, just big enough for two white rockers, a small table in between them and a few containers for plants. I got both rockers a a garage sale for $15 and spray painted them white. I love bargains!

    I love the looks of a beautifully decorated front porch. Flowers are usually what I decorate with, but I'd love to do more. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    As for the Indy Flower and Patio show, honestly, this year was a big disappointment. They had scaled back pretty significantly, probably due to the economy. Hopefully next year will be better. It would definitely be fun to meet up there!

  4. Hi Brooke,
    My name is Becky and I saw that you visit Aiken Gardens. What drew me to your blog is that I grew up in Indiana. Yorktown. Seeing your blog and your taste I will be back to visit.
