It’s that time of year again-the time when the cool breeze begins to blow, the leaves tumble effortlessly through the lawn & I’m the only one writing about fall. Just as excited as we all are in August for pumpkin flavored everything, we look forward to the holidays. I’m always conflicted, because as a blogger, I’m completely behind trend, however, as a child, we never decorated for Christmas until after the holidays, & sometimes several days beyond that. I’m not at all opposed to it, I’m just not quite ready, personally. Coincidentally, November is also when my beautiful gourds begin to show their age, so updating my decor becomes necessary. Rather than decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving, I create transitional decor. Something that can be easily adapted for Christmas or translates for both holidays. Today I’m sharing my fall to winter decorations for the front porch! It’s yet another one of my 5 minute arrangements & it primarily uses things found in nature!
Pine or evergreen branches

I try to keep seasonal decorations quick & easy. It seems not long after you display them, it’s time to put them away.
To create your own 5 minute front porch arrangement:
- Crumble paper bag & insert into the bottom of your planter for height & to act as a floral frog.
- Add your logs, leaning them out & alternating direction to show the different textures.
- Add branches of greenery inserting them into the nooks of the paper bag to secure them working around your logs.
- Add pine cones, stem down. “Latch” them on to your branches & logs at the base of your planter.
- For a little added surprise, add found antlers!
* To transition for the holidays, I plan to add starry string lights.
