It's that time of year again - time to Fall-ify the front porch!
I've already got my theme started with my ReStyled Harvest Fall Wreath, showcasing Autumn's rich purples and plums.
I've chosen to go with a single pot on the front steps. Surrounded, of course, by our family of three (soon to be four!) classic orange pumpkins.
The pot is planted with a Whiskey Barrel Millet, two decorative Kales, a purple Mum and three Vinca vines (borrowed from my summer pots).
Here's my rule of thumb for potting planters, you want something: tall (millet), something trailing (vinca vine), something colorful and blooming (mum), and some filler (kale).
The light green and white of the vinca vine keep the whole planter from feeling too dark and heavy.
Now, moving on up the stairs, welcome to the front porch.
You'll notice that I've kept my Mother's Day pineapple and lantern and thrown in yet another large purple mum in an orchard basket.
It all coordinates so nicely with my fall wreath!
But my favorite part of the whole front porch has to be the white wicker planter. I've mimicked the front step planter by using similar plants. I chose another whiskey barrel millet, flanked by purple mums, english ivy (again borrowed from my summer planters) and purple hued coral bells.
I'm always using the back door, but I love this planter so much that I've been known to stop the car while driving down the driveway just to enjoy the view!
Ah, Fall is my favorite time of year!
