Hot for Fall!

I am hot for fall! Ok, I’m hot because this summer has been scorching hot and dry, but I’m also hot for fall because it’s one of my favorite seasons for decorating! I love the fall colors and all the mums and pumpkins that are so vivid. I can’t wait for the end of September so I can get busy decorating inside and out.

I use lots of pumpkins on the porch and in the flower bed (if you don’t carve them for Halloween, they are good from the end of September thru Thanksgiving). They look great sitting in the sweet potato vine (kind of like a pumpkin patch) and the colors work great together. With some mums and pansies added to the mix it makes a beautiful setting!

Fall is also a good time to update the wreath on the front door. I like to use a grapevine wreath with artificial mums, foliage, and coordinating ribbon to keep the fall theme going.

For my indoor decorating, I switch all of my spring/summer flower arrangements to the fall colored arrangements and I scatter pumpkins around the house, tucked in with some of my plants. I like to add baskets of fresh mums indoors, also.

Just writing about fall has me excited like a kid waiting for Christmas! I can’t wait to start putting out the fall decor!
