Our fall weather has been a little toasty in Denver, but this week cooler temps are in the
forecast and I'll finally be trading in my sandals for boots! I just might sit on our patio,
sip a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and enjoy the crisp air. (It's highly unlikely, but it sounds nice.)
This year I went simple and brought out my new Otomi pillows, a cozy blanket and a few
pumpkins, quick and easy additions, but it feels festive.
I'm always drawn to pinks when I plan our flowers for the summer and by fall they're
loving the cooler weather and still looking good, so I go with it. Not your typical fall
colors, but one of my favorite combos, I love the pop of orange pumpkins with the pink.
The sassy, unexpected Tanzania Wallpaper Knock Off in our entry still makes me happy
whenever I walk in.
I kept our front porch simple, too. I get these Kimberly ferns every year in the spring
from Walmart, they're $13. I use them on our porch, three front window boxes, and two
other large urns at the edge of our yard. They get huge, so I take them out of the pots and
cut them in half with a serrated knife for our window boxes, otherwise they take over.
(The photo is deceiving but the window boxes are four feet long, and that is half of a plant.)
This flagstone patio is in the front of our house just off to the side of the porch.
I completely forgot to mention a great feature of the Otomi painted pillows that I
stenciled the other day, they give you simple instructions to waterproof them for
outside use. You still have time if you haven't entered the giveaway here,
it closes on Monday at midnight.
We've had this wood and iron bench for years, I love the weathered look.
The small folding table was a thrifting score last year, and easily moves wherever
you need to set a beverage. I nabbed Mr. Simple's wine just as he was ready to sit
down and enjoy...I need it for my blog photos, just watch some football and I'll bring
it back in a few. Ha, that got some eye rolling. :)
Btw, if you like my
worn out all-time favorite Frye boot knock offs

I change my outdoor decor a bit every year, here is a previous one
with my go-to pink and orange color combo.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
hope you're enjoying beautiful fall days wherever you are!
