My chrysanthemums aren't in full bloom yet, but I like having a basket of them right here by the front door. A wicker jug and a old tool tote full of pine cones round out the decor by the door.
Inspired by Pottery Barn's feather pomegranate swag, I made a swag for my front door with magnolia branches, magnolia seed pods, pine cones, and feathers. Except for the wear and tear on my hands, and provided I don't have to seek medical attention for my glue gun burns, my swag was much less expensive than Pottery Barn's. What do you think?
The sitting area already got a touch of fall with the autumn leaf pillows I made.
I added some mums and fallish garland to the lamp table. These mums are in full bloom: they're silk flowers from Dollar Tree. The little sign in front of the planter says "Welcome." It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but you can see it just fine in real life. I want people to feel welcome to hang out on my porch!
