It’s hard to believe that Halloween is just three days away. I have been so busy with other projects that I have neglected our front porch this fall. Since I have houseguests arriving on Friday I wanted to create a warm and welcoming entry.
I found some great heirloom pumpkins for fantastic prices at Trader Joe’s. I was able to purchase all of the flora and fauna shown for under $20.
I quickly arranged it on around a vintage picnic basket I have had for years.
I don’t plan on carving these pumpkins, but still wanted a bit of candlelight, so I created a few apple votives.
Did you see the sweet pear vases nestled within the arrangement? I got the idea from the November issue of Southern Living Magazine. You simply make a hole in the pear with a skewer and then clip your flower stem short and insert it. The water and sugar in the pear keep the flower alive. I actually took these images the day after I had made the floral arrangements.
Of course the pumpkin vase is an old fan favorite.
Mother Nature added in the leaves.
I think it says “Happy Fall Ya’ll!
