I was so excited to finally get some pumpkins for my front porch this week, although I went with the standard orange. I set to the task of putting some flowers in my large planter on my front porch. Y'all know the rules for making gorgeous planters, right? There are 3 things you need: a thriller, a spiller and a filler.
My Thriller: An orange mum with bright blooms
My Spiller: A purple potato vine
My Filler: Yellow Marigolds (oops, looks like my filler is taller than my thriller)
A couple of years ago, my mother and I put together this wreath. It has been added to and subtracted from each year. This year I put it up with the flowers off to one side.
On either side of the door, I have some small planters with maroon mums and a few pumpkins. So, there you have it. If you were to come by for a visit, this is what you would welcome you. Now, I must address the sad shape of my front door. I'm not going for a rustic look here, people. The south sun has taken a toll on my front door. The problem is, I don't know what to do about it...stain it the original color (somewhere near the top left of the door), stain it a darker color, or paint it a rich tone to bring out one of the colors in the brick. I need help!!! What would you do?
