Pastel Front Porch for Fall

I love to decorate with pastels....esp.  Pink.....
Here is the pastel fall wreath that I made to hang on the front door.    I used a large head of sunflower seeds and just added a silk rose wreath and a burlap bow.
I filled a vintage wicker settee with real and faux pumpkins.....the faux ones are the two on the left,  and the real ones are the two on the right.
My scare crow secretary is ready to do some typing at the

I am in love with the new colors of pumpkins that are available now.....
I wanted you to see how the settee looked without all the pumpkins in the seat.  I bought this settee at a yard sale this summer for $20....H said it was a piece of junk,  but I bought it anyway!     It has a piece of wood that covers the springs and  also some cushions,  but I choose not to use them this time.
H tied big stalks of sunflower heads to the columns......and of course I had to add some roses and bows!
Our porch from past oh my.......
how your taste in decorating changes over the years!
I used a big bale of hay for the coffee table  and have it set  for a nice cup of tea later.
Remember my post on this big field of pumpkins and sunflowers.....
The field is owned by some friends of ours and they were nice enough to let me have some sunflowers for my porch.....thank you Dan!   Here is Kyliegh out at their office by some of the large pumpkins that they grow and sell.    On the right is H harvesting some of the sunflowers for our porch.
We have been in the process of having a new roof put on and the porch has been covered with tarps.....

So,   I am running behind with my outside fall decorating this year.     Hopefully,  I can get the other side of the porch done before it's time to start decorating for!


  1. Beautiful Penny. Your pastel fall is so pretty. Love the sunflower wreath you made. Everything is so sweet.

  2. Penny,
    Playing catch up again....

    Love the wreath made using the Sunflower!! Very original!! Your porch is very pretty and just screams your name!! Love it!!


  3. Hi Penny,
    I do enjoy seeing the pink and white pumpkins instead of orange. Apricot is pretty too. I'm not really an orange person although I may sneak a wee orange pumpkin in now and then. I'm very much a pastel gal. I like how you used the hay bale for a coffee table; great idea! And of course I love your pink tea set sitting there.Thanks for joining me for my Autumn Tea party and Happy Autumn, my friend!


  4. I really like your pastel fall porch. I have not even started to decorate for fall yet.

  5. Your porch is just so inviting - I love all of the soft pinks (I also don't do orange) and roses. I really like the plaid throws you have scattered about, the colors are perfect! I don't think I have ever seen sunflowers with such enormous heads - they are amazing!

  6. Even Fall is pretty there, Penny, and FEMININE and FUN. Great job- xo Diana

  7. An unexpected use of pink and wicker for fall, and it looks great!

  8. I love your "secretary" scare crow. Fun! I did enjoy your pastel front porch for fall. Happy Tea Day

  20. I love the new color of pumpkins too Penny. I am still wanting to get one of those that look like terra cotta. I have picked up a few fun ones though. Will be switching out my Fall porch to Halloween this week. I love the springs showing on the settee. The faux pumpkins are so pretty. Now days it's hard to tell the faux from the real! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  21. You're AMAZING my friend...that is the most scrumptious pastel porch and you managed to make everything feel like autumn...delightful! Thanks for linking to Twirl and Take a Bow! ox

    Thanks Maria

  23. Wow, your porch is so pretty in pink! This is so different from the typical fall set up--it's inspiring! Your pink and very light orange (I think?) pumpkins are great in that settee.

  24. This looks so good! Beautiful. Pinned. We had so much fun partying with you at our last party. We hope to see you tonight's party at 7 pm. We love to see what you have been working on!
    Happy Monday! Lou Lou Girls

  25. Oh my! Are the pink pumpkins real? They look adorable as decor pieces. I love your take on fall decor, in combining your aesthetic with the usual fall symbols. Also, your unconventional color choices are adorable. Thanks so much for giving us a tour! Wishing you the best of health this season!
