8 easy autumn decor ideas for porch & patio

Can you believe that this weekend 
 is the weekend before November arrives...

and the weekend before all things twinkling lights and merry & bright 
start appearing everywhere?
I am excited.

But before we move full swing ahead into all. Christmas. all.the.time over here
I am sharing a recap of 8 easy ideas for adding a sprinkling of charm to your porch and patio
 with pumpkins. 
Because pumpkins keep on going right through Thanksgiving in decor
and they mix perfectly well with twinkling lights...

and the porch and patio deserve one more autumn shout out this year 
before Christmas sprinkles appear.

So today- it is all about pumpkins outdoors.
And a whole lot of them.

On the mantel

This is an oldie... 
but a collection of pumpkins is always a simple and charming 
look for a fireplace and mantel.

Because- it is fun and easy and creates a warm and welcoming area 
to sit and enjoy a cup of cider.

  Lanterns and pumpkins on the porch 

Well lit steps are a good thing any time of year-
I love lanterns and faux candles-but remember safety first - 
you don't want to leave them unattended.

Simple planter decor that is sure to delight guests.

Gathered together  By the fire pit 

(and stay tuned for this years look)

In a clay pot 

And for last minute Halloween fun...

Take that harvest mantel full of pumpkins and transform it overnight into 
a Halloween delight.

See you soon for a bit of randomness...
and next week for all things merry and bright
 starting to appear around the house.

Have a great weekend everyone.
