I can’t believe we are already in the second half of October! Where is the time going? I saw a countdown board to Christmas recently, and it made me catch my breath. What is it about this time of year…time really needs to slow down.
With only a few weeks left until Halloween, I thought it was finally time to decorate our front porch!
But first, you must climb a few steps to get to our front porch…17 to be exact. How do I know? Well, every year I place a pie pumpkin on each of those steps leading up to our front door. I head off to the pumpkin farm knowing that I need to return with 17 pie pumpkins. I love the way it looks…and now that the leaves are beginning to fall, it definitely looks like October!
We normally have this white wood bench in our backyard, but I moved it around to the front porch and grabbed some black pillows from off our gazebo furniture. I love the contrast of black and white, mixed in with orange pumpkins.
And speaking of pumpkins…I scattered various sizes, shapes and colors of them around the porch. I stacked some more on my black flower urns. I think the white pumpkins are my favorite!
And then for a little fun, I added some bats to the pumpkin decor. I cut bats out of black foam, glued wiggle eyes to them, and hung them from the overhang using clear string.
When the wind blows, they kind of look real…
Now that my front porch is ready for Halloween, I think I’ll enjoy it because before you know it I’ll be decorating it for Christmas…
