Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
Hello September, Welcome Fall. Are you ready to see some Fall front porch decor inspiration? I know its a little early but I am here to inspire you!
The start of September always seems like a fresh start and new season. The kids are going back to school, the weather changes, the days get shorter even if we want to hang onto summer.
Last month I let you know that I am partnering with Better Homes & Gardens and their line that’s sold exclusively at Walmart. I will be sharing my favorite finds, and I know they will be yours too!
Four years ago, around this time I got done trying out a home decor booth with a friend.
After that at my home I did a little market and it was incredible, but I learned we couldn’t do anymore.
I have always loved to decorate my home, and try new trends. Doing DIY projects was not something we were super familiar with but we wanted to learn.
I met an amazing lady, and she said for me to start an account on instagram so I did.
I will be honest, I had my blog domain paid for in 2011 after my daughter was born and it was all in timing.
While I have no formal interior design experience, it is just something that I love and have a passion for. I love to be creative and to give others inspiration. I never knew this would be my job and I am so lucky that I have the best job ever!
Now let me give you some inspiration!
The first thing I did was purchase live mums, and that will set the whole space.
I do have to warn you – they will DIE if you don’t water them.. I have learned from many years of experience of not watering each time… Hopefully I can keep these alive till the official start of fall.
Now let’s get to what you are all waiting on is the Better Homes & Gardens sources!
The first thing hiding behind the gorgeous mums is the Better Homes & Gardens Lowell Bench in Gray.
If you purchase this bench it isn’t made to be outside. This bench will be covered and I will be adding a poly on top of it so it can withstand any weather. You will see more of it at the fun video at the end!
The pillows you may have seen in my mudroom! The blue one is reversible! You can find them HERE at Walmart.
I have wanted some lanterns for my front porch, and these I found at Walmart from the Better Homes & Gardens line.
They do have the lantern in a large size you can find HERE.
If you live somewhere where it doesn’t get to hot or want to keep the lanterns in doors I bought these candles HERE from the Better Homes & Gardens line.
These planters may look like they are heavy galvanized, you would be surprised how lightweight they are. You can find them HERE at Walmart.
These planters come in two sizes these are the smallest! Aren’t they perfect for my fall front porch decor?
I wanted to share a few more photos of this view with all the mums in the window boxes. Hopefully it gets you inspired for fall decor!
I hope you enjoyed seeing this little tour of my front porch decor. Check out this video below so you can see how I did it and how quick 😉
