Decorating a Porch for Fall

Fall is my favorite time of the year! Finally, the weather starts to cool down and I can eat more because I don't have to worry about being in shorts and bikinis all the time. Seriously, I wish someone would invent a double chocolate brownie with ice cream on top which had 10 calories per serving (and the serving would be HUGE).

Until then I will satisfy myself with shopping. ;)

I went to Hobby Lobby (awesome store) and started dreaming about fall outdoor decorations. Pumpkins, scarecrows, ghosts and candy were dancing around in my mind.

Unfortunately, I didn't find any black birds that I really likes, but I did find these amazing fruit bushel baskets, scarecrow, pumpkins and hay bundles. Suddenly, I didn't care that I couldn't black birds. I even forgot about the ghosts.

I made one more trip to Home Depot and then came home and created this....

I love marigolds! They smell so fresh and they look so festive for fall. I really love them in the bushel baskets.

This is what it looks like now. I still want to find something tall to put in the back-- maybe some corn stocks? 

I made the wreath too. I'm not sure if it's going to stay because I kind of wanted something orange, but it's cute and I'm thinking about writing "Forget the ghosts. Beware of me. Muahahaha!" on the chalkboard outside the door.
