Fall Flavor

It is so hard to believe that it is almost November.  Fall is flying by.  Fall has always been a busier time for us and this year is no different.  With all the work on our addition, I scaled back a little on the fall decor.  Besides Christmas, this is the holiday that you will see decorated for around the Stew house.  Here is a snapshot of what the house is looking like these days….

Here is the front porch.We are still  needing a few small trees and I am leaving a space to plant some flowers.  Any suggestions for a small, skinny, evergreen to go on either side of the steps?

My mums are  half way to dead and this happens EVERY year for me! How do you keep them alive!

You will notice, for the two of you following our addition, that I painted the front door black and added my favorite ORANGE berry wreath.  I love it so!

Here is my one attempt in the entry way to add some fall flavor…

This  is HANDSDOWN one of my favorite pieces to decorate seasonally with- my wall bucket.  I add different greenery and hang it on the

front door, depending on the season…super easy!

This was my Grandmother’s hutch that I inherited. I painted it black and I am loving it in our breakfast nook.  I have the red accessories out for now, but after Christmas, I am going

to put some white and greyish/blue accessories.  I just threw some greenery, pumpkins and gourds around.

My centerpiece on the table kinda looks like fake leaves threw up on it, but it adds some warmth and I think next year, I will put in a little more effort!

This is my new Bountiful platter and bowl that I put out to throw in some different colors. I also actually decorated the top of the coffee table for the first time EVER.  Having

young kids has always stopped that one for me!
