Autumn Porch Welcome

Hello Friends~

I always say,
 the "welcome starts right at the front door."

Last year we redesigned our porch
with Oklahoma flagstone.

It has been a wonderful addition
my Ralph Lauren Farmhouse Red Door
and the brick of the house.

Each season I enjoy 
decorating the door urn
and fall is no exception.

A few posts ago I shared my 
today is the rest of that story.

Around the door is a simply garland of fall leaves.

The large pots are from Mexico
and I placed faux evergreen
in each.
With our Texas heat, nothing will grow here long term.
I've tried over and over
so faux it goes!!

I enjoy adding little lights at Christmas to the evergreens too.
To the base, I add seasonal flowers fresh or faux.

The hanging Purslane is still going strong.

The mums will be yellow when in full bloom.

I try and pick mums filled with closed buds
for a better show through the season.
They seem to last longer.

We painted our garden bench last spring
and love it here in the front yard.
It wasn't the same red as the door,
 but so close, you can't tell the difference.

Do you decorate your front porch, door and entrance?

It's just a nice way to say hello
Welcome to our Home!

See you soon!
