While I sit on my front porch thinking about how blessed I am
to be able to enjoy the mild weather,
I am thinking ahead on how I would like to decorate my porch for Fall this year.
I definitely need to keep it simple, yet festive and inviting this year.
So today, I thought I would just present some Fall Porch inspiration
and a new favorite of mine.
These images are from my Fall porch last year.
Last year, I added cobalt blue to the porch in the form of fountains and planters.
A trip to my favorite garden center yielded beautiful mums that are actually grown there.
I will be making a trip there as soon as the mums come out of the greenhouse.
I have actually seen some mums recently at the grocery store!
My ivy topiary actually looked a little sad there … something got to it,
but I nursed it back to health and it looks pretty today.
I placed dried hydrangeas (I had a bumper crop last year) on the grapevine wreaths
among some silk flowers I had on hand in shades of orange.
Before the cobalt blue fountains and planters, I had a vintage wagon
and a weathered vintage door in that corner of the porch.
Mums, pumpkins and stalks of Fall corn fill the wagon.
The wreaths that year consisted of cotton bolls and Fall silk florals.
So stay tuned to see what I do to the Front Porch for Fall this year.
In the meantime, I want to show you my new favorite thing.
Actually, my new favorite yogurt!
It is called OUI … have you heard of it? It so reminds me of the yogurt
we ladies enjoyed in France on our memorable trip and saved the glass containers
to bring home with us. (Note: this is NOT a sponsored post … just wanted to share!)
I continue to pray for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Today I seemed to feel a bit unsettled when I was thinking about how I wanted to
decorate my porch. I was thinking about decorating my home,
while others are fighting to save their homes and their lives?
I know we all seem to reflect in times like these.
I guess all we can do is pray and think about how we can help, as they certainly need our help.
I wish you a most blessed day.
