The weather outside may be in the 90’s but that didn’t stop me from succumbing to pumpkin fever! This year I did a simple orange pumpkin theme and the kids love it. Unfortunately, they won’t leave the little ones alone. They have figured out that the ones on the ground are fair game all. the. time.
Hello, my name is Piper and I am addicted to pumpkins! Nice to meet you!
Who cares that it is 90 degrees outside and I am sweating while taking all these pictures? See my cute kitty with a squash in him? I have had him almost as long as I have had my husband. He used to sit in the kitchen and be all white and pretty with an adorable little fern in him at one point. Then we moved and moved again and somehow when we moved to Florida I forgot him and left him out back through the Spring and Summer and maybe even Fall and Winter one year. I can’t remember really. But, anyway, when I was cleaning out one Spring I found him in all his gray chippy mossy self and was delighted! He is perfect! I just love him!
This front porch has everything I don’t like in one. It is rather long and hidden from the street really with one side a half wall and the other side open. I am a lover of symmetry and this one messes with me every time I go to decorate. The plant above in the clay pot is an amaryllis bulb. It didn’t die out. I liked the leaves so here it lives. I am thinking it might not produce any pretty flowers this winter, but who knows. I really didn’t think it would live this long. He is happy so here he sits among the pumpkins.
I love a good wreath! Who doesn’t? But I usually find most of them too busy. I have found what I like is simple and changeable. This one is both. To do both of my wreaths took me about 10 minutes and I can change them if I grow tired of them or want to change them up …you know for something to do on a Tuesday afternoon!
The are just grapevine wreaths with hydrangeas of different fall colors placed in between the vines. Attach a burlap wreath and we are in business. I have done these in the spring with tulips and daises and they always come out cute and simple. There’s my DIY project for the day! Hope you took notes!
Here’s the whole thing put together. I would have loved to get a cute front door mat, but I have promised my hubby that I would not be buying anything that has to be moved until we are in the new house. So these pumpkins fit the bill. I assured him they would be long gone by January.
thanks for stopping by and seeing my front porch! Next post we’ll move inside the house. It seems all these large pumpkins have been busy having babies!
