Late Summer Front Porch ideas to transition from late summer into early fall! Simple color changes are all you need.
This week, I posted my first fall post of the upcoming season. You can view that HERE.
Late Summer Front Porch
Late August and even September are tough here in the south! Fall decor is all around us, but it can still feel like sweltering summer.
I long to wear sweaters and drink pumpkin spice lattes, but we are typically still in flip flops in October.
I say do what makes you happy! Decorate now if you'd like or wait! Regardless, I hope you leave today's hop with fabulous ideas to inspire your fall season.
I am starting to pull out fall decor from the attic and leisurely decorating here and there.
One area that I like to give a late summer refresh to is our front door area. By this time, I've grown tired of the pink flowers on our wreath.
I'm not ready to go full-on pumpkins to the porch, but I can update my wreath a bit to give a little nod to early fall.
I'd like to give a big shoutout to my friend Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home for organizing this fun summer tour with great ideas to transition your home from late summer to early fall.
Be sure to follow to the end of this post to get the list of all the fabulous projects for early fall!
You'll also find shopping lists throughout and at the bottom of the post.

Our spring and summer porch features pink flowers. Pink has always been my color of choice for summer flowers on the porch.
The front door mat is new this week! The previous one was really showing its wear. I wanted something simple to not compete with the blue rug. I'm really liking the combination.
For a late summer to early fall look, I love using golden yellow. It's such a happy look for a welcoming entrance.
These topiaries are faux!!! They are absolute, hands down our favorite Amazon purchase to date…..or at least mine! They are a little over 2 years old now. You can read more details on them HERE and a one-year update.
In a couple of weeks, I'll be adding faux pumpkins around the urns.
I'm looking forward to fall days to start enjoying the porches again. It's just been too hot and humid to enjoy porch sitting these days.
We will be enjoying our macho ferns for a couple of more months. I usually pull up our summer annuals around the 3rd week of September and replace them with pansies.
For now, I'll enjoy the simplicity before it's a pumpkin explosion.
Up next on the tour is my friend CoCo from The Crowned Goat. She's sharing a great idea for early fall craft and decorating tips.
