Fall On The Porch

We don't have a really big porch, but it is just the right size for a couple of chairs so I like to make it look inviting every season.  Time to transition from Summer to Fall

I love to start with the door since it is the place that welcomes my family and friends.  I looked through my stash and found a few things that would work for fall to create a new arrangement for my door basket.

Just a mixture of faux stems that looked like fall to me.

This was my summer basket, tulips are always a favorite.  I just buy flowers at the 99c Store for outside since they get really dirty.  That way I can change them out often on the cheap.

 Here is a look at our Summer porch.  Time to switch it out to Fall.

 Brown and cream to coordinate with the monochromatic color scheme I am using inside.

Now to finish up the inside.  Don't forget our 2016 Fall Home Tours - 30 homes - 5 days.

You can still link up to Inspire Me Tuesday.  We love seeing all of your projects.
