Fall front porch 2013 Sign In/Join

I tweaked my front porch some more this year...I removed the scarecrows, and added twice as many cornstalks, straw bales, and pumpkins. I'm going to show four pics total...three from today and one from last year to compare.

As a fan of lighting, I especially LOVE your after dark glow. It's seasonally warm and welcoming.

Wowser! It looks fantastic! I agree with Froo that the lighted picture is wonderful. Both porches are nice but I really like the changes you made to this years.

I bet you'll have plenty of Trick or Treaters at your place.

Love it Nitalynn esp the use of the corn stalks and the many pumpkins! I find I switch things around after the first set up. do you do that too or is it set,

I also like the bales of hay.

Wow! That is absolutely beautiful!

Are those terra cotta pots that you painted white?

Thanks, Emily and Crayon! Emily, I had done it the same way for a couple of years, so it was time to mix it up! I also have probably been spending too much time on pinterest-lol!

Crayon - No, they are white clay pots - kind of hard to find and more expensive than terra cotta clay. I have had them for a long time.

Looks great! I have some corn stalks, hay bails, and pumpkins in my front yard but I think I need to add some Halloween decorations soon!

Lovely porch and I do like this year's better without the scarecrows! At the first shot, I thought it was from Martha Stewart that was your inspiration for your decorating and then I realized it WAS your decorating!
