Fall Porch 2012

Once we got our pumpkins from the pumpkin festival this weekend I was able to finish decorating our front porch.  Every year I buy a huge mum from a local nursery for my big brown ceramic planter.  Then I added some other smaller mums from the local grocery store.  I love all the different colors of the mums.

I added the four pumpkins we got at the patch (one for each of us) and some white pumpkins from Target.  The wreath on the front door is from Hobby Lobby and picks up all of the different hues of the mums. 

The rug is new this year and is the Falling Leaves mat from the Company Store.  It is super thick and durable.

My porch is an open square and the mums and pumpkins form a little pathway from the steps to the front door.  I just love it! It is my favorite version yet.  I smile every time I walk to my front door.

How about you all is it cooling down in your area yet?  We have had some great cooler days here.
