Fall Front Porch: Fall Festival Blog Hop

Welcome to the 🍂Fall Festival Blog Hop🍂! I'm so excited to be joining this amazing group of 25 other talented ladies featuring a different theme each day this week! Be sure to check out the others at the end of my post!
Not going to lie, I was really nervous choosing to share our front door for this blog hop! Our house needs painting, it's a REALLY small space and the ground never dries out from rain right now. Our entrance isn't covered so, it's hard to put anything out front so, it posses TWO hard challenges!   
1. Not much space
2. Everything gets wet
I was up for this challenge though because not all of us have big front porches with beautiful decks. That shouldn't hold us back from creating an inviting home!

TIP 1.
Find Something Tall & Skinny.

I started by gathering up some of my "not so favorite" small faux pumpkins for around either side of the door. I purchased those two tall skinny black metal flower holders from Target on clearance for $5 each several months back! They are perfect for our small entryway, taking up about 8-10 inches wide. As much as I love apple baskets filled with Mums, they are just too large for our porch.

I filled them with Wheat from Hobby Lobby and some faux flowers I already had from Spring time. I like using the same flowers throughout the seasons by just adding or taking away a few that don't go with that season anymore. I enjoy purple for fall so, I left all of the purple flowers and added some faux orange Scarlets from You can use coupon CODE "CAC30" for 30% off at

TIP 2.
Make Signs, Wreaths or a Banner.

I used a piece of chalk to write out PUMPKINS on a piece of scrap wood and painted over it for a homemade sign. I made the wreath a couple year ago and you can find it HERE. The banner is from Target Dollar Spot for $3 and I just painted FALL on it with some leaves on the ends.

TIP 3.
Use Unexpected Planters.
I like to use old soup cans and wrap them in burlap for flower pots. I had some galvanized buckets from Goodwill that I found for .99 cents and they were fill in my pantry holding snacks. 🤣 I but 2"x4" under the pots to give them a little height.

Hope this helps give you some ideas if you're working with a small entryway too! Be sure to go visit the other bloggers listed under here for more Fall inspiration!
