As a child, getting me to eat breakfast or any meal besides dinner was a feat. Well to be frank old habits die hard because I will still go an entire day with out eating, but back to the story. So this particular day not only was I starving but my Stepmother was cooking my favorite meal of fried pork chops, fried apples, cabbage and cornbread muffins. I probably hadn’t asked less than a million times when was dinner going to be ready so when she finally said come eat……..
Maaaaan, I went to doing a Sound of Music, Maria in the meadow twirl with arms open and all. Well I spun a little too many times and found myself stumbling and before I knew it I cracked my forehead on the corner of the wall. Needless to say I had to wait another 20 minutes before eating. I said all of that to say, my excitement for Fall is just as intense as that twirl and wall collision.
I’ve kept out of Hobby Lobby and most craft stores because their tendency these days to put up harvest decor months before time ruins the welcoming of the season for me. Now that we are in September I just can’t contain myself. I walked the aisles of Michael’s the other day with the silliest grin on my face making note of all the new fall owl additions I plan to make and ordering an insane amount of Bath and Body Works “Leaves” candles that would make me hoarder certified.
First up is my fall porch. Here are a few of my inspiration ideas. The pumpkins will get added later because I don’t want them to rot.
Getting at least one cornstalk for my mailbox, not from Kroger though. They wanted $20 last year. I’ll find a farm first.
Wait until you see what my sign is going to say.
Pretty sure I want a big sign like that. Now to find a piece of worn wood that large.
I absolutely love how shabby chic this looks. There will be white pumpkins….and mums
I have two lantern lights on either side of my door. This is an option after we brush off the spider webs and such
Anybody else ready for fall?
Oh….and keep your pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING. I like mine on the porch. Last year I had 10. I’m thinking of going big this year, 50 too many or nah?!!

I love these ideas Mimi! I’m not usually the decorative type when it comes to home decor but I did step my game a bit up and went to Pier 1 Imports and got a fall wreath for my front door.

Yes! It starts off small then spirals out of control!

Love the inspiration. I agree hit up a farm for your cornstalk because you will get one way cheaper. I’m definitely ready for Fall. We’re going to decorate the balcony and do either a door hanger or wreath for the front door. Can’t wait to visit the pumpkin patch and get some pumpkins again this year.

I am counting down the days until the pumpkin patch opens. I tell people all of the time you know you live in the country when the pumpkin patch is only 10 minutes from your house and there are three in my area!

I’m not ready!!! We had a winter that never wanted to end so I feel like Summer should stick around til at least mid October ::stomps foot:: but this year I might do the wreaths but definitely the mums. I guess I can plan our Apple picking trip now…
KitaSeptember 5, 2015 at 11:56 am
I never decorate…I don’t have a home decor bone in my body and it’s sad because my mom was the home decor and decorating queen…that did not pass down to me at all
LaShawnSeptember 5, 2015 at 1:38 pm
I am officially obsessed with fall. I’m about to head out right now with the intention of buying SOMETHING fall for this porch. It’s pitiful

First let me say Im loving the new blog and look!!! Go Mimi!!! That meal sounds delish…I probably wouldve had a wall collision as well!!! I love fall decorations, especially the front porch decorations! And Hobby Lobby has passed the fall they have already moved into Christmas…I love that store and get so overwhelmed when looking for decorations!! I LOVE the bow on the light post…Im going to suggest that one to my mom she has some light post very similar to that on her house!

Fall is my absolute fave! Was in Target yesterday (after forcing myself to stay away for a while), and I saw a bunch of cute things that I am already freaking out over. Last year we were unable to decorate. This year, I wanna go all out!

Hi Mimi! I think I’m a bit late to the game but I wish I got a peek at this post back during the season… I wrote something like this too, I’d love to know what you think 🙂

Neutral-colored mini pumpkin patch to contrast a bright front door? Coming right up!
Does corn stalk to complement a lighter setup? You got it!
