Last year, I didn't put too much effort into decorating since I was grossly pregnant. I was determined to actually get with the program this year and decorate for at least fall and Christmas. I may be a little behind, but I was able to finish things up for fall this weekend! I will probably leave this up through Thanksgiving, but I may replace the flowers in our large pots sooner than later.
Here's the before:
A little far away, but basically we just had the chairs and little table between them.
And the after:
Yay for a no longer empty porch!
I used a little bench that was my Granny's on the far left side of the porch to hold a few flowers and name plaque I painted. Note the wart-y pumpkin we adopted.
I picked up the stand up wooden sign at Canton earlier this fall! I have decided I do not like purple or red mums. The blooms seem to lose their color so quickly, these look dead.
Charlie probably counts as decor... he never leaves the mat outside the front door!
Ellis Pottery ran a great sale on pillows a few weeks ago, and I grabbed these for under $4 for the pair! I have to brag on the gorgeous yellow mum that Granny Skeet gave us for our anniversary!
Well, that's that! It feels so good to come home to a porch that I love, and I'm already brewing over Christmas plans. I would love to see pictures of your fall decorations!
