Every year I try to decorate my front porch a little differently, but it seems to always end up very similar to the year before.
I buy all my pumpkins at the Springfield Flea Extravaganza because they have a vendor with the best prices. Then it's time to come home and play with the pumpkins.
I used a variety of pumpkins, mums and kale in an attempt to coordinate with a new wreath from the Pottery Barn Outlet.
The wreath was a little pricey, but I liked it's muted colors and the leaves that look nearly gray and match my house. It doesn't "pop" off the front door, but has a quiet subtle look of fall that I really like.
This sap bucket and stand were also purchased at the flea market and gives me the ability to add different levels and heights for displaying the pumpkins.
I also purchased some kale this year. I've never grown it before, but they said it would last until winter and at 3 for $10, it seemed like a real bargain. I used the other two in my urns that I'll show at a later date.
The kale drinks a lot of water and along with the ferns, needs attention on a daily basis even with the cooler weather.
I love decorating for fall with it's bright colors ~
