I have a question for you.
What do you love most about Fall?
Since Fall is my favorite time of year, it’s difficult for me to narrow what I love most to just one thing. But if I have to choose, my favorite would have to be the weather.
You see, I live in the Deep South where Spring blows in with storms and heavy pollen. Summer follows with scorching heat and high humidity. But Fall, glorious, glorious Fall, is the perfect time of year. By September, the humidity disappears. And by October, the heat. What is left is absolutely perfect weather for BBQs and watching football games on the patio.
This is my family’s version of tailgating. Lots of food, fun, and fellowship conveniently located in our own backyard.
Disclosure: A wreath was provided by Tree Classics and the fireplace mantel was milled and installed by Outback Deck, Inc, in exchange for a review on this blog. All backyard fun and opinions are 100% my own.
So naturally, we like to decorate the patio like it’s an outdoor room — because well — it is.
LET THE TRANSITION BEGIN
The summer to fall transition began in September with a combination of color and texture. Click here to see this tablescape by the fire.
This included a think-outside-the-box metal wreath for the fireplace.
As September moved into October, the space was ready for another transition.
A NEW RUSTIC MANTEL
The first change was the addition of a rustic mantel to the fireplace by the good folks at Outback Deck, Inc. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have had the pros handle this. And I learned so much about the process, I decided to dedicate a full blog post to this project in the coming weeks.
A NEW FALL WREATH
The next change was the addition of a Fraser Fir Wreath from Tree Classics (click here for the website page). This wreath is so lush and full, I felt it didn’t need anything except some extra color and texture.
So the wreath was layered on top of the metal and mirror wreath. An unlikely union, to be sure, but when the two are combined, a new wreath is created that is completely original and rich with organic charm.
A burlap strip and a shimmering bronze ribbon pull the look together.
See how easy it is?
You don’t have to be a master wreath maker in order to make this look.
Just layer on the color and texture and then….do a quick change for Christmas.
That’s what I plan to do.
Notice how this combination creates a unique look by allowing the natural elements of the green wreath to take center stage.
And to work in concert with the surroundings.
For a little extra sparkle, just fire up the wreath’s battery-operated LED lights.
And then sit back and enjoy.
A fall wreath that celebrates green…
This is why I love fall weather — and my new green and metallic fall wreath.
And now it’s your turn.
