Fallscapes




Please pardon my absence on Friday, I was busy trying to breathe through all the sinus irritations I had. I hate that I didn't post since it was a momentous occasion...that's right, it was the FIRST DAY OF FALL! cheers and merriment all around!
So now is the time to gather up your pumpkins and start decorating. If I had a front porch rather than simply a front door and a door mat, I would go all out with my fall decor, like the picks below. However, considering I have half a foot of space to decorate, I have to get creative. I'll post my fall door decor as soon as I get my pumpkins and get to work. My goal is the end of the week so my mom will be impressed that I went out and bought a mum when she visits this weekend.
Here are some great ideas to get your fall creativeness in gear if you do, in fact, have a porch:




I love love love grey and white anything, especially when in pumpkin form. I also like the unconventional detail of the antlers. So this isn't exactly on a porch, but it could be.

For small spaces, stacking pumpkins is really cute. Paint or carve your house number into each pumpkin.




Again with the grey pumpkins! I like the splash of metallic bronze on the little pumpkins and also using the pumpkin itself as a pot for the plant, which is what I plan on doing.




Filling containers of any size with small pumpkins, berries, sticks, cinnamon, leaves, antlers...the list goes on... would be great indoors or out.

The golden orange and pops of white are so crisp and pretty when stacked up the stairs and illuminated by a beautiful red cylinder candle (if it's outside, get a plastic one!)

Add in some hay bales and apple crates with flowers and pumpkins.




If you're on a budget, fill some lanterns with smaller pumpkins and others with pillar candles, all of which can be found cheap at Wal-Mart, even though I despise Wal-Mart.
