Hello, and welcome! Things look a little different around here today. I’ve decided to add a monthly feature called Style My Home. I was throwing the idea around in my head, so I asked in my survey if you would like to see home decor, and 57% said you would. While I have no intentions of straying from fashion, I thought it would be a fun monthly post to do. I need some motivation to get back to decorating and tending to my home. We have some renovations on the horizon too, and we need to replace our couch, so the living room will get redecorated. I can use the inspiration for myself too. I’ll be posting this series on the fourth Thursday of each month.
I decided to start with easy fall front porch decor. If it’s not easy, I don’t have time for it. But it’s really easy to add some fall touches to your front door or porch.

I picked up a couple of mums from Lowes and placed them with some faux pumpkins and a red lantern. These items are perfect for fall front porch decor. I like to group things in odd numbers. Notice there are three elements on either side.
I pulled my fall wreath from the attic. It needed a little work so I added the glitter copper pumpkins from my craft stash where some other elements had fallen off. I also purchased a “Happy Fall” mat from Lowes.
The pillows for my chairs are summer pillows that I covered with a DIY pillow cover. You can learn more about the covers here.I also placed a smaller red lantern and a wire pumpkin arrangement on the side table.
These were some much needed touches for our porch considering the chairs still had Christmas pillows in them. I did turn them around so that only the buffalo plaid side showed, and I had a spring wreath on the door, but that was it. Hanging my head in shame. I told you I needed self motivation. Good thing I had most of these items around the house to create easy fall front porch decor.
The poor mums almost died the first week that I had them. The affects of Hurricane Michael came through and hubby was afraid they would drown. He stuck them in the garage and of course the opposite happened. It was so dark and hot in there, they became severely dehydrated. They would not hold water. I did some googling and learned that you can separate the soil with a fork when it has pulled away from the pot, and them soak the whole pot in a bucket of luke warm water. Yay! I saved them. And I love walking by everyday and seeing the pop of color through my side lights.
Do you decorate your home seasonally? Or leave out generic year round decor? Or not at all?
