I’m finally finishing up fall on the front porch. I’ve been working on my front entry for awhile, but haven’t quite felt like it was finished.
To make it prettier, I would add more pumpkins and flowers. Done!
An hour or so later, I would be removing them because I felt like I had too many pumpkins and flowers. I tell you, some days it isn’t easy living in my head!
This was my first arrangement. I found mums that are suppose to be a variegated pink and yellow. To say that I am excited for them to hurry up and bloom so I can see how that turns out would be an understatement.
I liked the pumpkins, the mums and the new basket.
It just seemed to lack something.
Adding my favorite fall wooden sign to a near by wall really helped out.
However, it still seemed a little bare.
My entry is not very wide, but it is very tall. I have to be very careful to get decor tall enough and keep things out of the walking path.
So I added a few new purple Violas, Kale and Snapdragons to the planter, put some mums in an old rusty olive basket and of course add some pumpkins.
Better, but I still felt like it something was missing.
What was missing? A little bling.
A little glue and glitter fixed that. Now all of the pumpkin stems match! Now everything doesn’t feel so flat.
I was still going back and forth on what was missing, when it occurred to me that I would love it a lot more once the mums bloomed. Mind blowing, I know!
Since mums are a bloom once and done for the season, I usually try and buy them just as they are opening so that I can get the most enjoyment out of their flowering season.
So I think that it is safe to say that decorating for fall on the front porch is done.
I just need to practice a little
lot more patience so that I can sit back and enjoy fall in all of it’s beauty!
Until next time…
