Style Scouting: Vol. 162

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

Simple Fall Front Porch Decor

It’s October 1st and the weather feels like it! Which makes me very happy. What also makes me happy is that every October 1st I have a tradition to go buy a pumpkin to place on my front steps. This year I changed my tradition and bought it yesterday so I could take a photo of my simple fall display on my front porch for this post.

I love seeing the pumpkin and fall colors when I drive down my driveway.

In my previous house I kept a candle in every window on the front of the house. There were 14 windows. Every October 1st, I changed the white bulbs to orange bulbs and kept them up until after Thanksgiving weekend. Then they went back to white for the Christmas season.

This was just something I did that made me happy. I don’t have windows in my house to place the electric candles in now, but what makes me smile is that both my daughters have continued the orange candle in the window tradition. When I did, this It didn’t occur to me that I was making a tradition, but I did.

Do you have any fall decorating traditions that have carried down to your children or that your mom did?

  1. Stealing the apple pie ice cream idea, but making it for my frozen banana fruit “nice cream”.

      Hi Laura – That is a great idea. I have a banana nice cream a few times a week where I usually add different mix ins. Going to try the apples mix next. My husband makes dairy ice cream in a Ninja Creamy machine. He adds an Apple Pie Rub that was made to sprinkle on meat, but found it’s even better on ice cream. :-). Fun to experiment with new flavors.
