Welcome back everyone, I'm wrapping up my Fall Home Tour with Part 3 and sharing the Front Porch, Dining Room, and Breakfast Nook with you today.   If you missed any of the tour last week you can catch up on Part 1 here and Part 2 here.  

Even though I chose a more neutral, blue and white and black and white color palette for my patio and indoor Fall decorations this year, the porch is definitely bright and cheery!  I used some of the same elements from last year's Fall porchmy porch from last year but with a pumpkin and mum color swap.  Similar but different looks! 

If you follow along on Instagram you might have seen that I've been busy painting pumpkins.  I did two faux ones for my Entry table but the rest are real for my porch.  The gingham ones take some time but the polka dot ones were really quick and easy (this tool is the key for that)! 

The pink squirrels are back of course, love pulling these guys out every Fall!  (From At Home years ago and I sprayed them pink.)  I've also had these rustic lanterns for years (many of you do too) but they were looking a little tired so I painted them black last year.  

These lions were a new addition to my porch earlier this year.  I always want to use my pink squirrels on the porch so I needed to move the lions.  They are SO heavy that I didn't want them to go far, so I just moved them out further to the end of the front walk and paired them with a few more pumpkins to kind of extend the porch out further.  Mine are concrete and were from the estate of a family friend but here is a similar version. 

The mini pumpkin wreath that I made last year is center stage on the door again this year.  

With dark evenings descending earlier in the Fall, I  always like putting up these string lights to add some light to the porch without turning on the harsh porch light.  Such a cozy glow!

I kept the Dining Room very simple with some cut branches in ginger jars- such a dramatic, totally free statement! 

None of our leaves are really turning yet but hopefully I can replace these with some Fall color soon.

For a small nod to Fall I put some oversized acorns (I painted them) and faux white mini pumpkins in a large white bowl for the centerpiece.

Lastly, come on in to our Kitchen Breakfast Nook-

Here I've just gathered some pumpkins on a tray with another colorful flower arrangement.  I like that this can stay put when we eat or work at this table without being in the way.  

I'm enjoying the blue and white Fall plates from At Home that you saw in my Patio tour, they pair perfectly with these darling toile monogrammed napkins.  (Low in stock but check out her other wonderful monogrammed napkins too!)
