Today I picked up sugar pumpkins, small gourds and an assortment of seasonal plants and flowers. I drove home full of excitement and anticipation, thinking about how my Autumn display would come together. I just got two wonderful footed planters that were made by a carpenter I know. I painted them antique white (with outdoor paint) to match the trim around my front door and filled them with the goodies I bought at the nursery.
When I was finished, I stood back to admire all of the wonderful colors that come with the season. Soon the buds on the mums will bloom and my planters will be overflowing with Autumnal beauty.
What a wonderful way to wake up the entryway to your home...welcoming Autumn and welcoming friends.
