Fall Welcome!

Hello Everyone! I added the finishing fall touches to my front porch today.  I gathered a few leaves that had fallen from one of our trees and scattered them on the porch.

I didn’t use corn stalks or straw like I have done in past years.  However, I placed mums in the urns as I have always done.   I bought the mums at Lowes a couple of weeks ago and I’m surprised that they’re not yet in full bloom.

This year, I added a little ambiance to the front porch with lanterns.  I placed an orange mesh tin with a string of lights inside the lanterns.  It’s really pretty at night.

It gives just enough glow. 

The wire planter hanging on the front porch is spruced up with some sunflowers and a Harvest Home sign that I made.

My favorite spot on the front porch!

I have been enjoying the cool mornings swinging in my swing.  I still haven’t made that Pumpkin Spice Latte that I mentioned which you can read about here.  Maybe this weekend I will make it!

As always, thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Fall.
