Fall Decor for the Side Door

September 20, 2012

 I love the Fall Season and want you to know that before you knock on my door and I answer. 
Typically it's all about decorating my front doors but since most of the house traffic comes to this door, I thought a little autumn love was in order.

  My yellow mums in bronze planters wait on the step with a message for my guests.
My Burlap wreath is hanging out this season over on this door. I have added a cooper letter and some fall embellishments. I hope nobody snatches the cooper letter, after all it is only spray painted but we won't tell the cooper thieves.

 A sweet burlap pillow adorned with the same flower that is on the wreath is on my chair, so I am comfy waiting for you to come down the driveway to visit. By the way, how long were you staying again?
 And a planter filled with autumn leaves and a pumpkin sit on top of a little orange stool.
 All obvious signs that Fall is here. Except there are no real pumpkins for 500 miles around. Where are you Mr. Pumpkin?

  2. So pretty, Laura! That burlap wreath is gorgeous with the fall embellishments. I have GOT to get my porch decorated! :-)

  3. Your entrance is so lovely and inviting! Here in GA, I am beginning to see pretty pumpkins at road side stands. I need to get busy decorating!

  4. Just lovely, Laura! I love that you decorated the door that everyone uses, too. I know we always used our side garage door entrance to enter the house, yet the front is always what got decorated {this was at our old house}.

  5. i love how the red/orange pops on the stool and pots.... so happy and inviting!

  6. Love the spray pained copper letter! What a cute idea! I'll be over later with some sweet tea!

    While we don't have much fall here in Phoenix I would love for you to stop by to see where I did find a bit of fall.

    Have a blessed day!

I love that you also decorated your "back door" ...it is beautiful and so very welcoming....as back door guests are the best and you certainly made it a wonderful entry for them!...Love the wreath and the metal planters with the message....you are just so darn creative!!!...Have a great weekend!!

  11. Fabulous! So funny -- all our traffic comes in through our GARAGE -- yikes! So I always have something on my garage door. :) If only it was always clean and organized! TGIF! Picking up some mums this weekend to help me get in the fall frame of mind!
