The Inspired Room's Fall Nesting Party 2011. She is encouraging us to put out a few things that remind us of fall. Since it is not actually fall yet, I think this is good to do in that gets us excited about what the season holds. I usually don't decorate for fall until end of September but I did put out a few things that I really love. I love family photos especially holiday ones. Since its time to say goodbye to summer, I took a few of the frames in my kitchen and replaced the current pictures with ones from our trip to the pumpkin patch in Hernando last October. This is my cute find from Big Lots a few weekends ago. It is a chalkboard frame and I got it for $6! Love it! I plan on changing out the pictures often and even letting the kids write the caption they want on it.
One of my favorite pumpkins on the entry hall chest...
Mums are my favorite this time of year and I always can't wait to get those summer flowers out and replace with the mums. It already makes the porch look better and ready for the new season. I kept the accent plants like the ivy and potato vine because they look great for fall. On into October the mums will quit blooming and I will replace with pansies and kale for the winter. This is the view from my front door. The mums look nice with my sunflower door decoration. I also spruced up the deck a little because this is the first thing you see as you come up to our back door.
Can't wait till October to decorate for halloween. Check out these cute things I found at Michaels. I plan on making something for the mailbox with these so I will show pictures soon of how it turns out.
So hope all of this gets you in the mood for fall. Be sure and check out all the other links to the party...really cute ideas.
