Since we’ve lived in this house, going on four years now, I’ve never really decorated the front porch for fall. The porch is usually filled with some pumpkins we carve for Halloween. And the flowers from the spring/summer are dead, still in the pots. This year, I threw away all the dead plants, put all the pots in the garage, and cleared it off. This year, we finally did a fall front porch and I love it!
I’m always so skeptical about mums, I never really know how to keep them alive in the cold temperatures. For now, they seem to be fine (crossing the fingers). Kevin and Hadley got them at Home Depot, and he let Hadley pick them out. We both said we would’ve picked different colors, but I actually love them now. They look great after we did some rearranging.
We bought random sized pumpkins at our local grocery, and the barrels of hay are from Home Depot. I was sort of shocked, one day I come home from (I forget where actually), but Kevin and the kids had ventured out and picked all of this out on their own. I was surprised and loved it!
After we went to the pumpkin patch this past weekend, we added our small pumpkins to the batch. It looks so fall like!
We wanted to put a corn stalk and a scarecrow in the back of the hay, but we decided not to, maybe next year. Just love how it turned out! It looks so cozy, and ready for fall!
