Fall Porch Decorating

There is a cool nip in the air and it seems like just over night leaves started to turn. With the cooler temps, I was finally able to venture out to the shed to dig out some of my fall decorations.  Since it was such a nice cool, rainy day I decided to start transforming the porch . To see the usual summer look click here.
I am still waiting to see what color my volunteer mum is going to be. Out of all the mums I bought last year this one managed to survive.
I decorate in the fall in 3 stages. First is the traditional fall leaves with pumpkins and indian corn. Later it will transform into a more dark, eerie feel closer to Halloween. Soon after it goes back to more of a harvest feel to wrap up the fall season for Thanksgiving.

I just love all of autumns reds, oranges and gold colors!

I love to sit here and enjoy the cooler weather.
I had to redo my horn of plenty since years of being in the weather took its toll on it something fierce.
 If you happen to of visited my blog last week you saw my wreath that I did. To complete my door I added the swag and entwined twinkle lights in the leaves to give it a soft orange glow to greet nightly visitors. 

Stop back again as I will be turning to inside my home to begin more fall decorating.
Until then be sure to stop by these others parties to say hello and get great ideas.
