Fall Home Thansgiving Decor


W E L C O M E     F R I E N D S 


We are absolutely loving the bright Fall days here at our place!  Look what I "cooked up" this week to share with you.

It's true that I do like to get out of the kitchen and this is one of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions. Our youngest daughter and SIL were married five years ago and we made these pumpkin topiaries for their wedding.  We actually used amazing fresh Fall flowers, fruits and vegetables with lots of bright berries, celebrating their special day.  


Ever since then we have gone on a Fall scavenger hunt to find all the fixings.  We have a natural little pond behind our home where we found cattails, dried weeds and thistle pods, wild roses and bushes with berries.  Our SIL grew and shared the pretty little gourds with us, thanks Shane!  The small green pumpkins were grown and contibuted by our new neighbors, Linda and Dennis.

We did buy the white and orange pumpkins, but that's all!  The log bases are stored year after year. The pumpkins sit on oasis squares that I use to build the arrangements and I made the silk wreath more years ago than I can remember.  I miss my dear friend Deby from Rexburg.  She made the happy hanging gobbler for me, a gift I always  cherish.


How do you say "Welcome" at your house this time of year?  I bet there is something close by just waiting to be arranged for your front porch.

Happy Veteran's Day.  Our love and thanks to those that serve us.  Have a great weekend all and Go Broncos!

  7. What a fabulous entry to welcome in Fall. Those topiaries are just outstanding. You would pay a fortune for those at a craft fair. I love all of the found and grown items on them. What a fun and pretty tradition. Pinning it, not that I could ever make it look that great!

  13. So pretty! Traditionally in autumn on my front door is a wreath of "silk" red, orange and yellow leaves. Many years ago the supplies were purchased at Michael's.

    I enjoyed your visit on my blog.
