I have no clue why I was so excited to share our outside with you for Fall. I am absolutely loving the Fall colors and the warmth it brings to our home. Lots of you have commented that you cannot believe I love the color. Well… I think if it were a huge commitment … like a wall color or a piece of furniture, I would be a little freaked out. I know pumpkins and bittersweet are only a temporary addition of color. ???? So, today, I bring you my Fall tour of the backyard.
I went all out with multi-colored pumpkins and I LOVE it! We have an Amish community about ten minutes south of our house so I can always rely on them to have the best pumpkins and mums. And you can’t beat their prices. I bought all colors and varieties of pumpkins, including the nubby, warty ones, which I’m obsessed with. The more texture the better for me.
I created our centerpiece on our outdoor farmhouse table by adding a huge gourd to an old wooden box and surrounding it with fresh picked bittersweet vines and white pumpkins. Of course, warty, nubby gourds for the win on each side. I added a few pieces of porch posts we had leftover from a project as candle holders … but used the small white pumpkins in place of candles.
On our back focal wall, which is our old garage door, I draped some more bittersweet over the top of my sign to give it some needed texture. And we FINALLY committed to our patio lights we’ve been saying we wanted all summer. We hung those yesterday …. and of course, they have a dimmer. Dimmers are a MUST in this house.
I sprinkled pumpkins all around in our yard, adding them to our urns. It was the first time I decorated our urns simple like this. Normally I plant mums in them, but I’m loving the look of the pumpkins this year. I added some mums and pumpkins all around the chicken coop for some color and texture. And, of course, flower bed boy, Will, is holding one. He holds one every year!
I absolutely love Fall and love to decorate for the season. I kind of went pumpkin crazy inside the house, too! ????????♀️ Did you enjoy our Fall tour of the backyard this year?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Buh bye, now!
