Halloween Fun

Halloween this year with Blake was sooo fun! We started the day off by going to a party that morning at a friends house and ended the day with a second party at another friends home:) Lots of fun, fellowship and great memories! Blake got into the whole trick or treating thing and would say "Na" when it was his turn for some candy! True to character:) Here are some photos of our little pony and his friends!

Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago we went to Pappy's Pumpkin Patch with a few of our friends! It was a beautiful fall day and a great opportunity to try and get a few photos! Enjoy:)

Fall Decor-Part 2

This year I did something totally different in my entry way then I normally do and am pretty pleased with the outcome! I put some fall foliage in my very versatile apothecary jars and a few pumpkins on a leaf platter! I had that wood carved wall hanging in a closet and thought it would fill in the space below the painting nicely! However, something was not right:( The painting reminded me to much of Spring, but I needed something on that wall. Soooo...

I was at Target and found this wreath on clearance and brought it home! I wanted to use the frame to make the wreath pop, but could not get the painting out:( So I found some construction paper that matched our wall color and taped it over the painting and Ta-Da! Problem solved! Unless you look very, very closely you cannot tell that there is a painting in the frame and I think that the wreath completes the look!

Here is a close up of what I used to fill up my jars...leaves, acorns, pine cones, and a few small faux pumpkins!

Fall Decor-Part 1

I love decorating for FALL! I love the warm colors and the natural beauty that it brings! This year I was a little late putting out my decor b/c we have been so busy and out of town...however better late than never! So here are a few of things I added to make our home feel more like Fall, since the weather does not always cooperate:)
Welcome to our home!

I like to tie raffia bows on a few of the pumpkins to jazz them up a bit!

My Aunt Sherie gave me these turkey parts a few years ago and this year I put him on the front porch to greet our guests:)

I have reused this wheat for many years now and love the dramatic effect it gives the mantel!
This year I added leaves to the bottom of the vases!

I like to do something different on our table each year...this year I found this fun plate at Walmart and added a little garland and a white pumpkin and Ta-Da! Love the little acorn salt and pepper shakers...where else but Target:) I found that place mat for Blake at Pottery Barn Kids...he has enjoyed learning about Fall and Thanksgiving by asking about the pics while eating!

More pumpkins...you can use them in so many ways!

My baby turkey:)
~Happy Fall Ya'll~
