I love the look of this front porch all decorated for Halloween. Traditional. Corn stalks which I find are very hard to find here in NC. I used to decorate my front porch with them every year when we lived in Ohio. The mums in the apples bushels look great here. And of course lots of pumpkins. I have to keep my real pumpkins on the ground under a tree. Otherwise, they get too hot and they “cook” on the bricks of my front porch.
Here is a shot from the Pottery Barn catalog from last year.
And this shot is from my new catalog that just arrived.
I love the look going on here too.
I don’t really decorate to scare. You know, blood and guts, monsters, skeletons and all that, unless I am having a party. How about you?
I pretty much stick to the basics like you see here. Lot’s of pumpkins and candles, mums, and I would still love to get my hands on some corn stalks.
I will probably wait till October 1st before I put my big pumpkins on the front porch. But inside the house I have already gotten started. I don’t want the neighbors to think I am rushing anything. :)
