My favorite part is the corner by the front door with all the pumpkins, wheat straw, a small red mum and the very "special" flowers behind the pumpkins. Some people may call them weeds, as I am sure the Mister will once he seems them. I think they look really pretty and the yellow contrasts nicely with the orange of the pumpkins.
The lantern is filled with WalMart pumpkins that I sprayed white and silver a few weeks ago. My
hands had paint all over them and J asked if I was going to be the Tin Man for Halloween! I really need to start wearing gloves when doing messy stuff. The flowers in the big pot are still blooming from summer, with lots of buds on them. They are just too pretty to pull out. Plus, I think they look really pretty with the ghost pumpkin. I did not do a wreath this year, but instead used a Southern Living wall pocket I found at GW back in the summer. In the wall pocket I placed these beautiful faux leaves in reds, yellows and orange. Under the wall pocket is a little iron and glass table with a copper watering can full of red sunflowers. In front of that I placed a extra large mum in a orange-yellow color.
On the other end of the porch is my black rockers with the monogram pillows I made here. Between the rockers I have my tea cart with a wire pumpkin candle holder, a little basket of pine cones and a vase with some pretty flowers. On the ground I have a couple of small laterns with tea lights.
I am not super happy with the tea cart, just could not seem to get it right. I am sure I will be changing it around once inspiration hits. One last look at the pumpkin end.
Here is a close up of the "flowers" behind the pumpkins.
Well that ends the porch tour, I hope ya'll all found it as inviting as I do. And please stop by, maybe we can rock and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.
