Fall Decorations

When I think of fall decorations, I cannot help but think about the amazing ways I can make my front porch ready for the brisk and colorful autumn days that lie ahead.  What better time is there than to spend sitting on the porch wrapped in a snug throw and sipping on some warm cocoa or a nice cup of hot tea? All I can say is it is my absolute favorite season of the year.

Whether my porch is adorned in happy and oddly shaped pumpkins or filled with a mixture of colorful mums, I am always delighted to find a neat idea to feature on my front porch each year.

Well, if you are looking for some great fall decorations to make your home warm and welcoming this season, here are some inspirations I have found to share with you for autumn 2014.
