A Warm Fall Welcome!

I decorated out front 2 weeks ago but am just getting to share it now. I have been away, left last Wed. and got home Sunday. I was away with girlfriends to the beach. We have done this annual trip for 41 years now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is always a great time. I feel so blessed to have these friends all these years. We all were neighbors and raised our kids together. Now our kids have kids:) Anyway, here is my WELCOME to you and all who visit! A pretty wreath is a beautiful welcome to family and friends. I made this last year and still love it but am working on a new piece for the front door, and this will go on the back door.
 I have had the coleus in the urn all summer along with the begonias so just added some faux pumpkins, a gourd  and a mum at the base.
 Love how the coleus is growing up the sticks.
 A real ivy has been growing here in this chair planter all summer so I added a faux sunflower bush. This area gets NO sun so it is hard to use real here.
 The pumpkin doormat came from Kirklands last year. They do have it again this year. I placed it on top of a plain doormat. Sorry, didn't realize it was crooked when I took these shots:)
 I trimmed this angel wing begonia WAY back; it was a lot bigger and in the way! Then I added the pumpkin branches

 2 faux pumpkins greet visitors.

 I put a real mum in with the bushes that are here in this area. It is now blooming a lot more!
 A coleus, mum and geranium sit on the sidewalk leading to the front door.

 I got this pumpkin patch fence piece many years ago at a craft fair and still love it.
 I simple garland dresses up the mailbox.

 Thanks for your visit! I missed you all last week and will try to get back to visiting you all. Have a beautiful Fall day my friends. It is getting time for hot cider, cozy throws, football, chili and all the other fun things that Fall brings!!!! I love Fall!! I will be sharing at these parties:
