RRemember when I said that hospitality and joy are not canceled and we should decorate our porches? I report that I decorated mine! It’s simple but it makes us happy (and hopefully makes the neighbors happy too). It’s amazing what a copper pot of shiny moms and pumpkins can do to cheer you up, you know what I mean?
It was fun creating a mini drop in my porch lantern with a few small pumpkins, wheat-like foliage called “bunny tails” and copper wire string lights. (All sources are linked at the bottom of the article!)
Our porch is small, so we don’t have a lot of room for decorative elements, but I like to keep things simple and affordable anyway!
The color of these moms is GORGEOUS!
I even assembled a small door basket with a few plants.
The lantern looks so cute at night too, although I haven’t been able to show you a good night shot yet.
Have you decorated your porch this year? I would love to love to see!
– Tag me on Instagram @theinspiredroom (I sometimes like to share messages when you tag me!)
– Or share it in The Inspired Room Community Facebook group (it’s free!).
I would love to see your lanterns, ideas and inspiration all year round.
Happy fall nesting!
My exact lantern from here is currently sold out, but here are a few similar options below! Mine had a mechanism that allowed us to hang it directly from the house, but you could hang any of them with a lantern hook.
Wide neck brass lantern (pictured below, love it filled with so many pumpkins with these recycled pumpkins mixed in!)
Square black lantern (shown below)
Curved black lantern (pictured below)
