The older I get, the more I appreciate a perfect Fall day. And we had quite possibly the best one this past Saturday. The sun was shining, not a rainy-looking cloud in the sky, and perfect sweater-weather temps. It was poem-worthy.
So we did the most logical thing – got some friends together and went to a Sunflower Festival at this cool local farm!
Just a couple of friends, hangin’ in a sunflower field…
I finally had some free time this weekend to put together a new seasonal wreath (doesn’t everyone craft at 10pm on a Saturday night??)…
I purchased a grapevine wreath and fall floral stems from Michaels. I used a roll of burlap that I had leftover from my Spring Wreath project.
I started by wrapping the burlap around the wreath. Then I trimmed the long stems and arranged the flowers before I hot-glued them down to keep them in place (half of my Christmas wreath wound up in our side yard last year due to wind and a lack of more permanent security measures).
And ta-da! A wreath is born!
And now the whole front porch is decked out for Fall, with some mums lining the steps and a new wreath on the door. Still need some pumpkins and squash to finish things off, but it’s definitely starting to look like Fall around the Kennedy house 🙂
