Fall Front Step with Pumpkins on the Vine

Happy Fall! Can you believe that it’s already that time  of year to start pulling out the plaid shirts and boots?  I feel like we were just in the middle of summer, and already the first leaves are falling! I’ve started doing a little fall decorating around the house. While I don’t have a front porch, I do have a Fall front Step with Pumpkins on the Vine to share with you today!

This year, we had a pumpkin vine pop-up on it’s own in our front yard. It was fun to watch it grow, and we actually ended up with three full-sized pumpkins this year! I thought it would be kind of cool to cut them, and display them with some of the vines still hanging off.

It made for a really cool look. I don’t know how long they’ll last, but I can enjoy them while they still look good.

I did a fun post for DecoArt with mums and a DIY witch’s hat. You can see hat here. We had a few huge wind storms that came through, and I made good use of some of the smaller, fallen branches to put in my bucket planter. It looks Fall-ish and creepy at the same time. My smaller mums are in galvanized buckets from the home improvement store. They make a quick and easy planter!

I used an large embroidery hoop, some wood slices,and a few faux florals to make a cute, fall wreath for my front door.

Every year, I plant some of my mums in the ground early in the season. It allows them time to grow roots, and they come back year after year. You can see how to grow your own big, beautiful mums here.

I found one last year that starts out white, and fades into a really pretty lavender color. I love how beautiful and delicate it looks!

We put in a new front walk last year, and it looked like a wasteland forever. I am so happy the landscaping is finally starting to fill in. It finally looks established.

I love this variety of Sedum. The older the blossoms, the darker and deeper the pink color.

At the beginning of the summer this year, I also planted a tiny purple grass, with about 4 blades in the 4-inch pot. It looked a little sad.

It’s a monster just in time for Halloween! I can’t believe how much it’s grown. It’s a shame it’s a annual here!
