Adding Fall Color




The trees do make quite a show here and since I live on the edge of the woods, we have an abundance of leaves flying everywhere. I still like to add some fall color outside to add to nature's display and this year was no different. Waiting until October means my mums will last and all the decor will carry through until Thanksgiving.




The corner table on my front porch was made very simple this season; only the addition of some chevron patterned burlap ribbon on a grapevine wreath and a natural looking pumpkin. And, isn't this tri colored mum pretty? It will be the focal point when it blooms.



A new orange, square wreath made from wooden rosettes makes a big statement on my front door. I think it is a bit unexpected and I love the square shape.



Mini pumpkins in a white lantern add a splash of fall color to my patio table. I'm hoping for a few more nice days to sit and enjoy a fall cocktail.




The fall touches I add to the back, must blend in with all the leaves, while adding a rustic charm.


Have a wonderful weekend!
