This year I decided to make our front porch decorations stand out more than last year. I used the same vintage wood box, but did this instead:
Set the box on a large bale of straw and used it as a "pot" for a large chrysanthemum. I need to be better about remembering to water my flowers because the color has changed over a few weeks time since I'm a bit forgetful.
When my friend Emily was in town we added some gords and cut dried hydrangea from our bushes on the side of the house.
We also picked up our three pumpkins, two white and one green, to the steps. But, when I found this antique wash stand on the side of the road, I made the most of it and used it to add height to the other side of the front door. Now it is home to William's monogrammed pumpkin, two other pumpkins and some hydrangea.
I love it!
