Fall update for front porch

 
 
I rarely decorate for fall. Around here, it's all Halloween! And trust me, Halloween will take over my porch soon- the hubby is just running  a little late with some of his projects. In the meantime, I added a few fall and Halloween touches to my porch.
 
As you can see from above, I replaced the hydrangeas from the summer porch with some mums. Below you see I still have the same flowers on the side table, but I covered the blue planter with some Halloween paper so the bright blue wouldn't be so distracting. I replaced the lantern with a black one and added a dollar tree ceramic pumpkin. I just put out a placemat on the table to add some color.
 
 
 



I had to replace the plants in the corner planter because the summer ones passed away. There is a little of the sweet potato vine left and I hope it rejuvenates and survives. I added a couple of pumpkins over there. Next time, I'll look for a larger pumpkin. I just happened to have these on hand.


I have the same pillows- I just covered them with covers made from napkins. They are the same napkins I found at Tuesday morning and used for my back porch no sew pillows, just in fall colors.

 
The pillow is too big to do the fold over method so I stuffed it and temporarily sealed it with double sided tape.  I'll still have my summer pillow for next year.



That's it- just a few simple updates. Oh and there is this guy below, guarding it all.
