Patio Fall Decor

I have never decorated for fall before and I haven’t purchased real pumpkins in probably ten years. I have plans to purchase a few pumpkins in multiple sizes to put around the backdoor and the swing on the patio. I am pretty excited about the pumpkins. When I visited Hobby Lobby and Michael’s to purchase stems and greenery for my fall floral arrangement, I noticed all the cutesy fall decorations. The outdoor sofa cushions are red and orange so I figured decor in the typical fall colors would look just fine. Throughout my fall decor quest, I found all kinds of pillow covers, ceramic pumpkins, and decorative signs. A lot of store were having sales on fall decor like Kirklands, Joann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, and Michael’s. I actually purchased these terracotta pumpkins from Target but the pumpkins were not properly wrapped for shipment so when I opened the box, both pumpkins inside were crushed into hundreds of pieces so I had to find some replacements. These are from Joann Fabrics and have LED lights. Along …

White Pumpkins And Eucalyptus

This is my last attempt at a fall tablescape. I removed the navy and smaller white pumpkins from the center. I added additional eucalyptus for the large white pumpkins to sit on top of and then used the smaller white pumpkins as place setting toppers.

I originally thought I would paint or modge podge chinoiserie fabric onto these white pumpkins but I am afraid I would ruin them. However, I am not thrilled with the overall look of these pumpkins. Oh well, I already removed the tags. I decided the foyer table was too busy so I left the fall floral arrangement but removed the pumpkins and eucalyptus picks. All the glassware and chinoiserie pieces seem to fill the table adequately. Every time I would walk by the dining room table and the foyer table I would think that they both looked a little busy. So I removed the pumpkins …

White Pumpkin Fall Tablescape

I broke apart the original floral arrangement and made two smaller arrangements. I took the greenery from the kitchen table centerpiece and some of the greenery from the original floral arrangement and placed it on top of the navy blue table runner. I purchased three large white pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and added in the other smaller white pumpkins and navy pumpkins purchased previously. I did not change too much on the foyer table. I added one of the smaller floral arrangements and switched out the pillars with taller candlesticks. I also switched out the navy pumpkins for white.   I have now moved on to decorating the back patio. I have found cute fall pillows and other decorations in typical fall colors. I am looking forward to pumpkins going on sale so I can finish up my patio decorating and share photos.
