Pumpkins on the Patio

September 23, 2013 by 24 Comments

How was your weekend?  We’ve been keeping busy around here. The weather was perfect, so the patio and backyard got some much needed attention.  Most of the plants on the patio were spent and had to be removed,  except for some lantana and a sweet potato vine, they’re still alive and kicking. The patio looked pretty bare and needed a touch of color. So I gathered some pumpkins and created a simple, rustic fall vignette for the patio table.


While putting the arrangement together I remembered these stick-on letters I purchased a while back. I knew they would come in handy for something.

The letters adhered easily on to some shipping tags I found in my craft supply box.

Easy project for sure!

You remember my little chubby cement bird, he’s back in the picture!

I’ve added a mum to this tray, hoping it will start blooming soon and add more color to the arrangement. It’s nice to have this seasonal greeting on the patio table, it makes my heart smile and excited about fall once more.

Happy Monday to you!  I’m thrilled you stopped by!
