Halloween Deckorating and My New Red Door!

I added some metal pumpkin luminaries to my fall "deckorating"

Over the weekend the door and window trim got updated.  We bought the paint over a month ago but fell behind in our pursuits.  It's called Heritage Red by Benjamin Moore and I love it!  You can see the little windows on the garage door that Dan trimmed.   The outer edge that frames the window is now the same brown color as the deck which was selected to match the windows on the house.  You can see the window frame on the side of the garage as an example of what I mean.  

I never showed my topiaries I put together in September.

 I used the pine needle straw as a base to to help keep the pumpkin from sitting on dirt.  I figured it might start to rot quicker if it was sitting directly on soil.  There had been plants growing in these topiary cages all summer that I removed since they were looking tired.  We took one of the metal frames with us when we went to the farm market and searched for pumpkins that would fit.

We had a very active thunder and lighting storm early in the morning!  A few more leaves fell as a result.  We're beginning to see the colors changing around here- just a tad later than normal.  

I took this yesterday when we headed to town.  Some pockets of color are showing up.

 We still haven't had a killing frost so these plants on the right that I included in my vignette are still growing!

 I bought this one about 3 years ago.  We went back to the same place and they had more of them and more sizes.
Don't laugh too hard but I gave them rain bonnets!  LOL… I didn't want them constantly soaked so I covered them up.  

The coloring after the rain was so rich I had to take a few pictures.  You can't beat autumn in the north!
I'll add candles and light up the luminaries for Halloween!

  2. Liz, it's lookin super festive over there on your deck!

    I LOVE your awesome idea about using the pine needles as bottom filler in your topiaries - I have something similar going on and keep meaning to go buy some more burlap - but your idea looks great and is FREE - and I have a ton of needles - we have sooooo many pines in our back yard. Thanks for the hint.

    Hugs!

  5. Liz, your red door and trimmed windows look great. Along with your sweet Halloween decor it sure looks wonderful around your deck. Our leaves are just beginning to get a tiny bit of color. With the warmer weather this week, I think we will have a late change of colors. Have a great week, Liz. ♥

  6. Liz, your deck looks so pretty! Your Fall accents are wonderful! And that red door...LOVE!! I've been thinking about painting our front door red. Yours is such a pretty shade! No signs of Fall around here. We're back in the 90's. My geraniums and begonias are just blooming away! Hope I'll be able to get some mums and pumpkins soon!

  11. Liz, you have your deck looking just perfect for Fall. Where did you "buy" all those pretty colored leaves on the floor of it?!! Looks so pretty there with the Autumn show and your transformation.

  12. Liz, I love the addition of the red paint accenting your garage windows and door! Your 'deckorating' is so festive on your bench with your pumpkins and hay bales. I LOVE your pumpkin stacks...both with the wreaths and your topiary form! You're a couple of week ahead of us in terms of fall color and we're back in the 80s this week...ugh :)

  14. The red is eye catching and pretty. Loving your fall vignettes around the house. Those topiaries are the cutest, along with your pumpkins. You do have beautiful color in your neck of the woods.

  15. Hi Liz, your deck is so inviting to sit out on a cool day with a cup of hot chocolate. I'd be right over to visit with you outside. I love your red door. Such a beautiful focal point and pop of color. Mine is red and I thought about going aqua but not sure, I still love the red!! Have a great week. xo
