CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Front Porch for FallFall is finally here and it has arrived on my front porch! I can’t wait for you to see it because it includes  something different that I have been planning for a year now. Do you see it?

page Here’s a look at my porch…pumpkins, lanterns, mums and…yes, that’s it!…a dried corn garland above the door! I am so excited! But first…there’s another little surprise hiding in the photo. Do you see her? Look in the sidelight to the right of the front door…

kitty helper  …and you will see my co-host today…Miss Kitty! She is keeping an eye on me and making sure everything is in its proper place.

basket and garland 3This year I wanted to use as many natural elements as possible with more muted fall colors…softer shades of orange and gold on the door.
basket I used a basket that I found at Goodwill several years ago and filled it with leaves, pyracantha berries, little pumpkins and ears of dried corn.

corn garland And strung above the door…a garland made of more dried corn. Click here to get the details on what inspired me and how to make it!

right 4 On one side of the door…traditional orange pumpkins …

pumpkin lantern …and a stack of tiger pumpkins filling a lantern. Love their colors!

pansies And on either side, a pumpkin-shaped pot that I found at Lowe’s last fall filled with pansies in my favorite color combination…yellow, purple and white.

left On the other side, more of the same…

wheat lantern …except that the lantern is filled with wheat…perfect for fall!

mums  I also added these wonderful mums with a variety of colors in one pot! Love it!

porchAnd here it is…my front porch for fall! But I do have a little confession…any leaves that you see are faux! lol It’s still waaay too warm here for any changing leaves! Hey…whatever it takes to set the mood for fall until the weather catches up with the calendar here in the South! What about you? Are you seeing any signs of fall?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed a little peek at my porch! Please visit these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
