If it is going to look like fall inside the house, it certainly needs to look the same outside the house. My front porch is smaller than I wish, but there is still a little room to "play" with seasonal things.
I bought this swag a while back at Hobby Lobby and added a few things to it. The plan was for it to go on the front door. However, we had replaced the storm door since last season and it is so energy efficient that we can't put one of those hangers on it and still shut the door. So, the swag ended up on the chair instead.
Corn stalks, a vintage bushel basket and a few fall colors fill the opposite corner. If you look closely you can see the Halloween lights in the basket, but I won't turn them on until I add the rest of the Halloween items next week.
Nothing says fall quite like live mums. This is one
of 3 plants I have in the front of the house
and I can't wait for them to be in full bloom.
I like white pumpkins, my husband likes traditional pumpkins.
I guess these must be Mama Pumpkin and Papa Pumpkin!
He brought these home over the weekend from Menards.
This is the fall view from my yard. The local farmer planted soybeans this year instead of corn. I love the soybean years...that corn makes our yard feel so closed in.
I took the above picture not far from our home.
I love how it represents fall in Illinois.
