Decorating Your Fall Porch with Containers

Happy Friday! I hope your week was fabulous! Time for another Must Have Tip post to round out our fall posts for this month. We are going to bring in your weekend with some great ideas on ways to decorate for fall using different types of containers in your porch decor. 
 
 
 
 There are so many options you could use as containers, baskets, crates, wagons, urns, pumpkins, and of course pots, just to name a few, along with adding in flowers, pumpkins, leaves, and other fall items that the possibilities on creating a beautiful fall porch.
 
 
I love the mix of baskets and urns that Karianne from Thistlewood Farms used on her porch. Plus, I love the dried hydrangea blooms and the use of the wood pumpkins instead of real ones to add texture. 
 
Use a large urn to place leaves and stacked pumpkins in like Rachel from Shades of Blue Interiors did on her porch. Love the small basket with flowers and bowl with apples on the chair as well. Be sure to check her post out. Her entire porch is full of great containers filled with different unique items.
 
 Do you have a little red wagon that your kids don’t use much anymore? Fill it up with pumpkins, gourds and flowers like Tammy from Rock River Stitches and you have a simple beautiful display.
 
Here’s another fun take on the little red wagon from Newly Woodwards in which she placed different items into the wagon for a beautiful vignette. 
 
Fill glass lanterns with pumpkins and foliage and even an old bag like Craftberry Bush to add a little farmhouse appeal to your porch. Love the neutral color palette as well.
 
Instead of using a wagon, how about using a wheelbarrow? I LOVE this vintage wood one that Better Homes and Gardens shared but if you don’t have one of these like me, though I may be on the hunt for one now ;), a regular wheelbarrow will do the job just as well. Fill with pumpkins, flowers, foliage, berries and you are good to go! 
 
Keep things symmetrical with matching urns and pots on your porch flanking your door like Worthing Court. Love the contrast of the gray concrete pots with bright yellow flowers against the black and orange urns. Add the cage on top with candles and you have a beautiful yet simple porch. 
 
 Create a statement piece by placing an urn on a pedestal and creating a gorgeous floral arrangement like Serendipity Refined
 
If you wanted to keep it a little more simple, place mums in old apple baskets with pumpkins and it would still be just as beautiful! 
 
If you have a few benches or places to sit on your porch like Ella Claire does, why not fill a basket or two up with some cozy blankets and pillows to enjoy on a chilly night outside. You can even use the blankets to layer under some pumpkins or foliage for added texture and pattern.
 
And if you don’t have or can’t find exactly what you want container wise, why not make your own using crates?! Courtney and Brent from Gray House Studio took new crates and stained them to create this little vignette for their porch.
 
I love this look from Mustard Seed Interiors! Chicken coop boxes stacked on a large potting bench with pots, watering cans, pumpkins, and I would definitely add some flowers, makes the decorating possibilities of this endless! Perfect farmhouse look if that is what you love! 
 
 
There you have it! Which container if your favorite? Do you use any containers in your fall porch decor?
 
 
Stay tuned next month for a whole new topic!

Easy Pizza Night with Buffalo Chicken Salad

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WinWithTonysPizza #CollectiveBias

Hello friends! I am so excited that fall is approaching. I love everything about it! It always reminds me of happy memories and fun times. It’s also a super busy time of year for me, so it’s always a goal for me to have a strong dinner game plan. I’ve got lots of simple dinners lined up for during the week to help us out in the evenings. One of our family’s favorites is our Easy Pizza Night with Buffalo Chicken Salad.

Thanks to Tony’s Pizza, we are able to have a quick meal all together as a family. Often we save this dinner for a Friday night so that we can eat and rush off to the high school football game. Fall is when I met my husband when we were in high school. We spent many Friday nights together at football games. Now, he’s a high school culinary teacher, so we still spend our Friday nights under those Friday night lights supporting his students.

But before we head off to the game, we gather around the table to talk about our week and enjoy our pizza and Buffalo Chicken Salad. 

Our favorites are Tony’s® Pizzeria Style MEAT-TRIO® Pizza and Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza. Tony’s Pizza has been making authentic pizzeria style pizza for over 50 years and always with 100% real mozzarella cheese. They are quick to bake up in the oven and so delicious! 

Right now, you can win all kinds of cool prizes by entering Tony’s Pizza sweepstakes!
#WinWithTonysPizza #Sweepstakes – Walmart (9/19 to 10/17)
 

Our favorite side to pair with our Tony’s Pizza is Buffalo Chicken Salad. It’s perfect for a Friday pizza night! You only need a few things to make it and it’s so good! 

  • salad mix
  • wing sauce (store bought or homemade)
  • frozen chicken nuggets
  • Ranch dressing
  • carrots and celery

First, you need to bake your frozen chicken nuggets as directed on the packaging and warm up your wing sauce.

When your nuggets and wing sauce are done, toss them together in a bowl until they are coated well. Tip: add butter to your wing sauce when you are heating up to cool down the spiciness. 

Slice up your carrots and celery and lay them on the plate with your salad mix. After your chicken cools a bit, place them on the salad. In a separate dish, mix Ranch dressing with a tiny bit of wing sauce (the more you add, the spicier your dressing will get). Drizzle the dressing over the salad.

I’m telling you, this dinner is going to be a family favorite for y’all too! Quick, simple, and delicious. The perfect meal to share with your family before heading out to the football game, or to share with friends while you watch the NFL games on TV! Either way, it’s a win. 

You can find Tony’s Pizza at Walmart and you can get 1/2 off using this Ibotta offer! Add it to your grocery list for the week so you don’t miss out!

Does your family love going to the local high school football games? Do you have Easy Pizza Nights on Fridays too?
