Autumn Patio Display

I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was busy busy! I'm still decorating for fall...I promise I will show you the kitchen very soon. It just needs one more finishing touch! The outside is looking fallish as you can see. I am still working on the rest of the patios and front though. I should be done soon. My summer flowers still look pretty good so I will probably leave them another week or so. I am ready to plant pansies and mums!


This display is on the back porch off the kitchen. I love having an iron shelf there so I have something to look at when I look out the back door. It's alot of fun to decorate too! I added all kinds of fall decor including fresh pumpkins and gourds and dried corn.



I painted the little swirls on the pumpkins and added a little ribbon to dress them up a bit.


I found everything on this shelf at Hobby Lobby. Love the birdhouse!



I added fresh pumpkins and gourds to the basket. The asparagus fern is doing great!



My mom gave me the pumpkin basket a few years back. I added a mum on one side and dried corn on the other.




Like I said, alot of my summer flowers still look good. In a few weeks will add mums and pansies to the pots. I ordered the metal scarecrow at market last year...he is so cute!




You might remember him from last week...


That's part 1 of the patio! I will be done with the other side this week so I will show you soon!


Saturday was my 38th birthday! We all went out to eat at The Market Place, it's one of my favorite places. They have really good food and the best dessert ever! It's called a chocolate mess and you get a free one on your birthday. So if you have a Market Place you will want to remember that!

Have a great Monday!!

Hi Kristen~
Happy Birthday! What a wonderful patio, it's so cozy for Fall! I love the pumpkin basket and the pumpkins with the swirls on them are great! Well done. I need to do something in the backyard to make it more fall-ish looking. Thanks for the inspiration! XO ~Liz

Happy Belated Birthday!!! :)

Love your shelf, all decked for fall! The swirls painted on the pumpkins are so cute! And the pumpkin basket on the bottom shelf is my favorite!

Becca said...

Happy Birthday, young lady! I'm glad that we don't have a Market Place here because that Chocolate Mess sounds like it could get me into a lot of trouble !! LOL. Your patio looks wonderful ... love your baskets, cute swirly pumpkins and your adorable scarecrows! What a beautiful view out of your kitchen ... can't wait to see more! xoxo

Everything looks so nice. I was just going through all of my fall decorations and found the pumpkin centerpiece that you made for me last year.
