Thanks to my great friend, Amanda @ Dixie Delights for allowing me to guest host on her blog today. She asks, I answer.
One of the things I miss most of my years in Atlanta is the Fall season. Fall in Atlanta is one of a kind. The leaves change. The humidity drops. The air is crisp. We do not experience the same type of changes here in New Orleans.
When thinking of a post for Amanda, I immediately wanted to revisit my Fall decor of 2007.
The outside of my Atlanta home was forever changing with the seasons. Pumpkins in orange filled the hill as well as the porch.
I adore the array of pumpkins around the address sign.
A door piece of autumnal leaves, acorns, and wheat welcome guests to the home. In the cast iron urns, bushels of wheat mix well with cast-iron leaves and seasonal pansies.
I J always had fun arranging the pumpkins in the window box. I am afraid of heights, y’all! I am very afraid.
J & I always loved throwing our seasonal soirees, and the annual “It’s Fall Y’all” was one of our favorites.
Centerpieces of real pumpkins, seasonal blooms, and feathers made for the perfect starting point. I even used real pumpkins to hold dips and other foods.
