Sunday Princess Nagger supervised as I decorated the front porch. She found her paper pilgrim hat and collar she made last year in Kindergarten and thought it would be perfect to wear as she ‘helped’ me decorate, while holding a stuffed turkey:
The 2-1/2 bales of hay with the medium-sized pumpkins, a couple of cute scarecrows and a bundle of Indian corn:
First I ran strings of white lights around each post and across the top of the porch, then secured the bundles of corn stalks to each of the posts. They were so freakishly tall I had to set the bottoms of the corn stalks in the flower bed below the porch or they wouldn’t fit under the eaves of the porch roof:
I added fall leaf garland to each of the bundles of corn stalks for an extra ‘splash’ of fall colors:
I keep the front porch pretty simple since guests come to the back door when they come for a visit – the front porch is mostly seen by passing motorists and for Princess Nagger and I to enjoy while we wait for the bus.
The back porch will be decorated on Thursday, since today it’s supposed to be cold, windy and rainy. It will be the perfect time to tackle the indoor decorating, and since tomorrow is supposed to be 69 and sunny again, I’ll be able to finally get the back porch all decorated.
I have the rest of the pumpkins, one more bundle of corn stalks and some other Fall/Thanksgiving items that I save to deck out the back porch with. I’ll have the final decorating pictures all ready to post on Friday!
Do you decorate for Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving or just limit it to Christmas…or at all?
