    Fall Decor 2011 what do you do?

    Not that it feels like fall yet though the stores have halloween stuff out for a couple of weeks already!

    What do you do for fall decor?  I switch my wreaths/door hangings on the doors and buy some mums for outside.  I think I have some indoor decor too...have to check lol..I know I have a scarecrow from micheals somewhere. have to see because I got lots of cheap deals on fall/halloween stuff last year.

    What do you do?

    Re: Fall Decor 2011 what do you do?

    I have a life size scarecrow that I bought at Joann's several years ago that I sit on the park bench on my front porch. I have some fake mums and sunflowers that I put in my flower pots in my flower garden and planters on my porch railings. I have a several large fake pumpkins that are arranged by my front door. I have a flag pole that I hang a fall welcome flag, except on game days then I hang my Tech flag.

    Inside the house, I have a large pumpkin from Hobby Lobby that has the initial of our last name on it. It sits on our mantle surrounded by smaller pumpkins. I have a Halloween scene that I set out on my buffet in the dinning room. MIL gave me a large fall wreath for the front door and I have a fall centerpiece that goes on the dining room table with a fall table runner.  I also have various other pumpkins, scarecrows, etc. displayed in a small corner of my kitchen counter with a light that operates on a timer.

    Halloween is my favorite and each year I say I'm going to petition to have it made a federally recognized holiday.  Decorating is over the top, little tombstones all over the yard, Ghosts hanging from trees, rubber chickens upside down on the chicken's fence, motion activated scary noises, etc.  

    That wouldn't be a big deal, except I live so secluded that only us & one set of neighbors see them.

    I have a fall wreath of leaves & pinecones that goes on the door.  The matching candle rings go over the candles on the piano, 3-corner cupboard & side bar table.  We have had the wreath & candel rings for years - I bought them on clearance at Rite Aid years ago for 75% off.  The wreath was a couple dollars & the candle rings were around 75 cents.  I also have an orange fake pumpkin from one of the thrift stores, & we usually have one or two pumpkins from the garden as well.
