Corn Husk Wreath + Our Fall Front Porch

Sharing is caring!

We put up the most beautiful corn husk wreath on our front doors, which was all I needed to start the ball rolling on our fall front porch. After a few more flowers and pumpkins, we got to enjoy the porch for about 3 days before the kids started asking us to get the Halloween decor out!

Our Corn Husks Wreaths

I wanted a slightly different take on a traditional wreath this year – something not very common. I was also envisioning a velvet bow (velvet is so good this time of year!). When I stumbled upon a gorgeous, generously sized corn husk wreath with a big gold velvet bow I couldn’t grab my wallet fast enough!

Two of them were meant to be that is! They are HUGE and come in two sizes. I can leave these here from August right through Thanksgiving.

Corn husks are just the outer covering of an ear of corn. These wreaths will keep nicely in storage year, as long as you take care not to allow them to get wet! Keep them in a dry spot for storage and on a covered porch area.

The Etsy shop owner reached out and was nice enough to give my readers 15% off any wreath in her shop, using code CHRISSY. See those gorgeous wreaths here:

The blue gray paint on my door (Uncertain Gray, read about it here) can sometimes look a little delicate or feminine, so I appreciate the rustic beauty the corn husk wreath brings.

I brought in a hay bale this year – just one! It might be a struggle and really go against my nature, but I try not to overdo it. The colors on the hay bale and corn husks tie into each other and that makes me all types of happy!

The Boxwood Topiaries

Because it’s a common question, the boxwood topiary is real- I picked it up from Lowe’s last summer! I am crossing my fingers it continues to thrive here.

If you want faux boxwoods here are three great options that look similar in size and shape. The third option is the tallest and my favorite!

The Hanging Chairs

The hanging chair on our porch is the MOST fun to sit in, for adults and kids. I really did not know if it would be a hit or not! Although it looks adorable, you can’t tell if it’s comfortable – but it is great! I’m glad I didn’t go with the more traditional porch swing instead. (I have 11 pretty outdoor hanging chairs listed here.)

The kids fight over the hanging chair so much we ended up putting two more hanging chairs in our playroom for them. How’s that for a recommendation!

See the rattan hanging chairs in our playroom here.

Although I was tempted to go crazy with the green and white pumpkins, this year I decided to tame it down and go for a more edited look. We did just one giant pot of mums instead of several small ones. That is something to consider when you are planning out your fall porch.
