Remember when I said that hospitality and joy are not cancelled and that we should decorate our front porches? I’m reporting back in 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 bright mums and some pumpkins can do to lift your spirits, you know what I mean?
It was fun to create a mini-fall display in my porch lantern with a few small pumpkins, some wheat-like foliage called “bunny tails” and some copper wire string lights. (All sources are linked at the bottom of the post!)
Our porch is little so we don’t have much room for decorative elements, but I like to keep things simple and affordable anyway!
The color of these mums is GORGEOUS!
I even put together a little door basket with a few plants.
The lantern looks so cute at night, too, although I wasn’t able to get a good nighttime pic to show you yet.
Did you decorate your porch this year? I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to see it!

– Or share it in The Inspired Room Community Facebook group (it’s free!).
I’d love to see your lanterns, ideas and inspiration all year round.
Happy fall nesting!
My exact lantern from here is sold out right now, but here are a few similar options below! Mine had a mechanism that allowed us to hang it directly to the house but you could hang any of these up with a lantern hook.

Curved black lantern (shown below)
I shared more styling ideas for lanterns in this post.
