Flowers for Friends – Floral Friday

Hello Dear Readers!

Today is the 3rd Friday of the month and that means it’s a special Friday . . .  Floral Friday!

I am joining my Floral Friday friends Lidy, Mary and Pam to bring you another great day

of floral inspiration. Their beautiful images and links to their posts are below.

Be sure to visit each and every one to obtain the most gorgeous floral inspiration

for you to enjoy and hope you would love to re-create for your own.

There will also be a big announcement with regard to Floral Friday

at the end of the post too!

Today’s theme is Individual Arrangements.

When I have dinner parties, I always love to create a little gift for each couple

to take home with them. My signature gift is a little “pretty” with flowers in it.

So please join me for Flowers for Friends – Floral Friday.

Fall Porch

Hello Dear Readers!

I know it is not quite Fall yet; however, I purchased Fall mums quite early.

As soon as my favorite garden center, Dales Greenhouse in Sanford, N.C., brought out

their mums, I was there lickity split as I was participating in a Fall Tour hosted

by the lovely Angie of Postcards From the Ridge.

I was to present my Fall Porch on Friday; however, I was a bit concerned that I would not

be able to participate much if I lost power due to the storm; therefore, 

I had to bow out at the last minute.

So here I am today, presenting my Fall Porch.

The first decorated porch of the Berry Patch House.

Fall Porch Gone “Plum Crazy”

I have really been attracted to the beautiful Berry colors this Fall.

The shades of purple and plum have been seen throughout the house for Fall this year.

It was fitting that I go “plum crazy” on the porch too.

Fall Porch Inspiration and a New Favorite

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.

Setting a Post Thanksgiving Table

Setting a Post Thanksgiving table is usually what I do

when we return from our trip to be with our very large family

and extended family for Thanksgiving.

I love to cook our own turkey so we can have a small family celebration

with leftover turkey  to share.

Although it is so beyond wonderful to celebrate our blessings with my entire family

of siblings, nieces and nephews, their spouses, and my mom ….

I am also very THANKFUL TO bHOME.

Fall on the Back Porch

Dressing the back porch for Fall was on the agenda this past weekend.

Because you can see the upper back porch from most of the rooms in the main living area,

I needed to coordinate the colors.

I recently dressed the dining room in traditional Fall colors, which you can see HERE

and decided to go with those same colors, including the blues.

bHome Fall Tour ~ The Sunroom

I love to be home in the Fall.

Why? Because as a former Florida Girl, I never experienced the true changing of the seasons.

It was always summer like. Well maybe a brisk day here and there in the winter.

I would have to make a special road trip to see Fall leaves.

However, now that I moved further north, the Fall has truly become my favorite season.

To be able to see the spectacular fall foliage from every view in my home

is such a beautiful thing!

Today, is Day Three of the “Why I Love to bHome in the Fall” Tour and I will be showing you

my Sunroom dressed for Fall.

There is also a wonderful Giveaway. A chance to win a $250 Amazon Gift Card.

Information of this giveaway will be at the end of this post.

Day 2 of the bHome Fall Tour ~ A Peek and a Giveaway

I am not sure now which season is my favorite as far as decorating is concerned.

I have so loved decorating my home for Christmas,

yet I am so enjoying decorating for Fall.

It just seems to be a bit more relaxing for me.

Adding pretties here and there of dried hydrangeas, pumpkins,

sheaves of wheat and the bounties of Fall in a pretty bowl.

Fall Wreaths and Fall Porch Decor

I am so happy to be a part of the Fall Ideas Tour again this year,

where I am presenting my Fall Wreaths and Fall Porch Decor.

Today, is actually the day for Fall Wreaths, but I thought I may as well show you

the porch in which they are adorning.

My Fall wreath is a bit of a departure from years past.

I concentrated mainly on the colors that I planned to use on the porch

and the harvest of my summer hydrangeas that I have dried.
