Can I let you in on a little secret? I’m not much of a seasonal decorator. Are you? I like my home to feel welcoming through each of the seasons but all the extra decor gives me the jitter bugs. The last few years at Christmas, I seriously felt like it was just overwhelming. I’ve got to try to find a happy medium this year. So, a large part of me just doesn’t care for the seasonal decor and the the other part of me, doesn’t want to spend the money on something that’s only going to be out for a month or two. If you are like me in either of these two ways, you may like my post, Fall Front Porch Ideas For Free.
You see, we have a large front porch and, not that I have to keep up with our neighbors but, our neighbors go to town on adorable decorating outside. I’m not overly inspired by our outdoor areas yet I want to do enough to them to make them welcoming and some-what cheerful. So far you know that I’m not a big seasonal decorator, I don’t want to spend money on seasonal decorations, and I’m not inspired to be decorating the space that I’m working on. Sounds like it’s going to be a doozy today, right?
Before I dive right in to the post, let me say that I did spend a total of $8 on mums. I’ve never bought mums before and have been curious to see how they hold up for a few years now. If you wanted to get this free, you could totally substitute some fake florals that you have or some other potted plant. Get creative here or spend under $10 and pick a few mums up. =)
