Enjoying A Bit Of Harvest Decor

I've been eager to start decorating for Fall out here at Brown Wren Acres.  I decorate for the harvest season and it lasts until I decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. 

I added a few bales of hay, a pumpkin, two bunches of corn stalks, and a potted mum to make the driveway island a bit festive.   I always keep the wheelbarrow there and right now it holds a birdhouse, a pot of impatiens, and a terra cotta pot tipped onto it's side. 

I added pumpkins (foam - not real) to the top of my urns that were already planted with sweet potato vine.  I used foam pumpkins because real ones would be too heavy for the pots and would crush the vines. 

I think I'll replace the really fake looking stems with real wood to make them look more life-like. 

As you come up on the porch to the front door, you're greeted by our wreath, a dried gourd, and an autumn basket filled with pine cones. 

The bench to the left has a green cushion topped off with brown pillows with colorful leaves on them.  The next tour will take you down to the other side of the porch that you can only peek at right now. 

How are you decorating your home for the harvest season?

  1. I love decorating for fall! I already have pumpkins on my porch too. I also have my office decorated with fall pictures from the dollar store. : )

  2. I wish I could just hire you to come and make my house look pretty! LOL.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
