This is the first season I've done much with our porch, since we didn't love the exterior before we had it painted this summer (full exterior reveal coming very soon!). But now that we have the white house of our dreams, I was excited to deck out our front porch for the season. I headed to my favorite place for affordable home decor, Walmart, and chose a few key pieces that really dressed it up for autumn. Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post, as always all opinions are my own.
I think my favorite element are these great arched metal lanterns. They make such a statement but are only $16 each! I believe they are in-store only but I bought mine online and picked up in store which was super easy and saved me trying to hunt them down. (If you haven't tried Walmart's in-store pick up yet, try it! It's so seamless and high-tech. Your items are delivered out of a giant tour when you scan your phone - pretty amazing!)
I also really loved how they tie into the black of our new porch lantern for a pop against the white.
I keep the chairs, our classic square planters and these great faux topiaries on the porch year-round, which is a great base for layering seasonal items.
I also added tons of neutral pumpkins. My favorites are always the muted pastels and of course the whites. Can you tell which ones are the faux pumpkins? I love mixing real and faux for even more impact. Walmart has a really good selection of pale faux pumpkins right now.
Every year I like to pick up some white mums, and this year I put them in this gorgeous white planter with great texture. It's such a nice size, especially for the price!
On our outdoor wicker chairs I added these great plaid pillows, which are reversible to gingham on the other side (and only $12!). I love using plaid this time of year. Behind the chairs I hung one of my favorite pieces, this gorgeous gold metal wheat wreath. It's so affordable and such a nice large size!
Stacking pumpkins has always been one of my favorite tricks during the fall. Here I placed a stack on the steps but they also make a statement in an urn.
After saving for a few years to paint our exterior and then having it be a bigger/bumpier project than we intended this summer it felt so good to get to enjoy our home's exterior and make it special for the season. I hope I could inspire you to do the same at your home!
