fall porch: fayetteville style

out here in the south,
come fall,
peeps decorate.  

simple fact.

no pressure.


so did i spend 2 hours in hobby lobby
scouring the aisles for 
non-fall fall decor?

i know.
tend to decorate in whites,
blacks and greens.
(see visual above)

much to my children's chagrin,
they are still complaining,
that they got jipped.

i guess jipped they are.


i trudge on.

no matter the season,
i tend to stick with the same palette.

i guess i need to get out of my comfort zone,
yet still i sit.

in my comfort zone.

 just like to keep it simple:
black burlap,
green gords,
white and metallic pumpkins.

non-fall fall.

 guess i'm not the typical fall
decor zhusher.

tell me how you spruce up the place?
would love to hear about it.


  1. Looks Fab. Wendy. Great to see you last week! Hope you had a nice flight home.

  2. I like it. I think some fall decor out there is way too cheesy.
    Yours looks elegant and perfect on that porch.
    Which, by the way, is so perfect. I'd love to sit there with a cup of tea and a book for a few hours.
    Mind if I stop by?
    Love from,

  3. Fabulous, your porch is perfect, love the colors.

  4. Well, your style if just perfect for me!! I wish you were my neighbor! We could hang out in my new outdoor area, have some wine. Then you could help me put together my non-fall fall front porch. :)

  5. I like that you have your signature color palette that you work with. The porch looks very chic.
