We’ve had some challenges decorating the front of the house this season – namely, our Great Pyrenees farm dog keeps chewing on all of the gourds and pumpkins. I finally figured the secret: pumpkins too large and heavy for her to pick up and carry off. Still, because I could never be completely sure what would end up secreted away or chewed on, I kept it simple.
I used existing galvanized metal buckets and bought six mums in golden hues, and paired those with six round, white pumpkins. I harvested all of the various sized and colored pumpkins from our garden, and grouped them around the front door, along with an old lantern I found.
Finally, I bought a gorgeous fresh fall foliage wreath at the Portland Farmers Market for the front door. Perfect!Pin It
