It's officially Fall here in the beautiful mountains of Virginia, My favorite time of year!
We've got the golden sunflower yellows, candy apple reds and cider oranges startin' to peak.
I just can't wait till it's in full swing.
The temperatures are crisp at night and sometime dippin' into the high 40's and between 63-75 degrees durin' the day.
Everywhere you look you see changing leaves, corn fields, pumpkins and mums. I can't wait to visit all the Fall festivities.
Over the weekend I decided to add some "Fall Southern Charm" to my front porch. (I am still workin' on the inside though)
I will post pictures of that once I am done.
I went to Wal-Mart and found corn stalk for $3.98 a bunch.
(I bought two bunches)
I also found "real" mini hay bales there for around the same price.
Considerin' you pay close to $10.00 bucks for a fake hay bale I thought to myself "there is no way I'm passin' up that deal. I bought two of them as well.
Thank God I was drivin' my Husband's truck that day.
I loaded them bad boys up and took em' home.
I had a plan :)
I put the corn stalk on both sides of my door.
The hay bales I layed in front of them on both sides and then I sat my beautiful "Hardy Mums" on top. Of course it wouldn't be fall without pumpkins, Had to add them as well.
So now that I have you curious about what it looks like...Here it is...
It kinda makes me feel like I am walkin' up on the front porch to someone's house on the cover of "Southern Living" magazine.
My beautiful "Hardy Mums"!
I wrapped my smaller Mum in burlap since the pot was white.
Besides every room in my house has a touch of burlap in it. Can't leave out the porch.
I hope I have inspired ya'll to add some " Fall Southern Charm" to your porch.
Just let your imagination control your hands. You never know what the outcome will be.
