Fall Porch and Mantle

This weekend I was finally able to get up to daughter’s house to help her put out some fall/Halloween decorations.    She couldn’t wait for me to bring her the pumpkin topiary and add some fall touches to her mantle.

I made her the “Boo” banner last year.    She bought a fall garland and the white pumpkin this year and everything else we used she already had.    We did buy a strand of white lights to add to the garland but she couldn’t find it so I’ll pick up another strand and we can add the lights later.

The banner was a fun and easy project.

The “T” pumpkin was on clearance last year at Kirkland’s and belongs to granddaughter Taylor

 

Moving outside on the front porch is the pumpkin topiary I made her this year

I love how this project turned out!    I’ll share how I made the topiary later this week….it wasn’t hard to make at all

She bought a witch’s broom at Hobby Lobby and I added a lime green ribbon

And here’s her inspiration photo….I think we did a pretty good job of copying it.    I forgot to bring the other pumpkins which are scattered at the base of the kettle so we’ll add those later too.

We are still knee deep in the renovations at my mom’s house…it’s like opening Pandora’s box, you do one thing and it leads to 12 more things to be done!   I’m hoping and praying no more bathroom drama this week so I can finish up the headboard for my guest room!

Hope ya’ll have a great week!

You are such a good mom helping her with her decorations. I love how cute her fireplace and front entry are. Her broom is better than the one in the inspiration photo!

Becca said...

You're such a great Mama! I love your daughter's "BOO" banner ... and, her front porch is so cute! The broom is so whimsical, and the topiary is perfect!

Clever of you to add the green ribbon to the broom. It really makes it stand out.

Pretty. But you need some mums on the porch. Looks a bit bare.

So pretty, Judy! I know y'all had so much fun decorating. I'm going to be spending some time babysitting at my daughter's house this week and look forward to doing some decorating, too. Hope ours turn out as pretty as yours did!

Great job on the topiary and the boo banner is perfect! I wished my daughter lived a bit closer so I could help her decorate. You are lucky. :o)

All of it turned out really cute! That boo banner is precious! Your topiary looks very much like the inspiration photo. I have been knee deep in putting out autumn stuff myself and working in the yard.
