Some of you may have seen these pictures here, but since Karen is having a Doors of Welcome Party today, I thought I would re-post a few of them. Stop by her blog to say hi and see how the season is being welcomed into the homes of others.
You are greeted with color as you approach the entryway to our home. The metal dragonfly cloche holds natural material and a “planted” leaf ball. The basket on the door was fashioned out of faux hydrangeas, mums, black-eyed Susans, grasses, and leaves.
To the side of the front door, I placed an old bench in the small garden area and created a simple vignette with pumpkins and a watering can filled with spider mums.
Pansies and flowering kale add contrast to these mums, while three potted mums accent an old section of iron fencing.
Feathery grasses add height to a table in the foyer.
A carved wood acorn atop a silver box.
A bowl of buckeyes, the state nut of Ohio.
I hope you felt welcomed into our house this season! Don’t forget to visit Karen.
