Do you do any decorating for fall? Instead of all Halloween decor, this year I decided I wanted something a little more “general” fall that could carry us through November & into Thanksgiving. After one quick shopping trip to Lowe’s, my front entryway was fall ready! Originally I had planned to do the ever-popular pumpkin topiaries. But then we got to Lowe’s & I saw the giant cornstalk bundles (for just $8!). Our front entrance is really tall, so I thought the cornstalks would add good height & be fun for something different. Plus, they’re a nice reminder of Nebraska & perfect when we fly our Cornhuskers flag on the weekend!
The whole bottom of our cornstalk bundle was filled with ears of dry corn. So I was able to take the husks off of those and pair them with the small pumpkin gourds. They worked perfectly around the corn stalks. And just to fancy things up a bit, I tied the corn stalks together with a large fall ribbon. There was a fabulous pumpkin & fall foliage selection at Lowe’s–the corn stalks, pumpkins galore, flowers, Indian corn, and gourds! I loved that there was even a Lowe’s Creative Ideas sign with ideas for pumpkin decorating. So, we snagged a few pumpkins. But, then I decided that I wanted a little pop of color right by the door too. I wanted a second tall urn like the one for the corn, but sadly, there was only 1. So, I just used a different black pot instead. Mums are perfect for fall and they had some really great yellow ones. They give such a great pop of color by the door and look great with the pumpkins! At less than $2 per container of them, it’s a simple & inexpensive way to bring in a little fall decor! Do YOU decorate your front entry for the different holidays/seasons? Would you like some money to do so?!?! ;)…
