Hi all! It’s finally feeling like fall here in Atlanta. After a super hot summer (hottest ever everyone says, but that’s what they always say), the the temps dipped down into the 40’s this weekend. Even though we were swamped with soccer and our first fall swim meet, I managed to start my outdoor fall display. Full disclosure here, I like to keep things simple with my holiday decorating. Fall is crazy around here with school, sports and my design work, so I’m doing good to grab a few pumpkins and throw them on the porch. Last year, we didn’t even get the pumpkins carved! The girls didn’t seem to mind, so I was all good. This year I wanted to do a bit more, so I started to make my plan a couple of weeks back. I finished part of it this weekend and now I’m on to the doors and that means wreaths. Nothing fancy or too difficult. Take a look at my options and let me know which one you’d choose.
Love the amount of color and the total cost?? A whopping $11! I have double doors, so I need two wreaths. I like the idea of square vs. round for my space.
I love these beauties that Susie made from leftovers of other wreaths laying around her house. I, on the other hand, am not so lucky to have such gorgeous options lying around, so this probably won’t be my choice. But, I do love it…
The whimsy of this wreath makes me smile. Couldn’t you see it working for so many different holidays? Just change out the colors and you can make in feel like Christmas, Valentines or spring.
This wreath really speaks to me and not just because the talented lady behind Wild Ink made it for free, but because I love the texture of the magnolia leaves and the sparkle that the spray paint adds to the overall look. I might add a simple ribbon at the top, but other than that it’s the perfect simple look that I love.
For my last option, I chose another understated, yet elegant option. As long as you can make a pretty bow, you’ve got it made.
So, which option would you choose and why? I really haven’t decided, but I have to do it asap. I’ll post the finished porch project on Thursday, so I’d love to hear your thoughts. Have you done any fall decorating? Send me some pics and I’ll feature you on the blog. I love to see what you’ve all done!
