My Simple Fall Porch + Lantern

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!

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.

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.
