I have always decorated the inside of my house for fall. But it wasn't till the last few years that we have taken a look at the outside of our house. Last year S and Mouse made a scarecrow to sit by the door. This year I wanted something fancier. I told S that I would like to have a pumpkin topiary in the front. He immediately responded with what is that?! I told him I wanted to put three pumpkins together going down in size and then securing them with a stick through the center. I also said I might possibly want them in a planter. And for some reason with those limited instructions he still could not visualize my idea. (Really I don't know why)
So I found some great inspiration from the blog world.
I love the simplicity of this one. The contrasting colors, its just beautiful! This was what I had in mind when I first thought of this idea. But then we started at looking at all the different ideas out there.
This one is soo fun and whimsical! And of course I would love anything with a cute little bird on top. But that would mean I would have to put one of my cute little birds outside. Not sure if I am ready for that. Not sure if I have the height for this one either.
Yep, this is the one! I loved it. It was Halloween and fall mixed together. The black trees with the firefly lights are so beautiful. The swirly branches and the moon gives it the whimsy look I wanted. This will be the one we'll try. Look for a post later on our version of this
