Autumn Porch Decorating Contest Entries

Results of Our 2009 Contest to Inspire You

We were overwhelmed and excited with the autumn porch decorating contest entries.

Here are all the beautiful entries submitted!

Our 1st place winner was - "Make yourself comfortable"

Our congratulations to Dee of Medford, Massachusetts
entry #2
We love our big farmer's porch and try to make it as inviting and cozy as we can. We have plenty of mums and earthy decorations such as pumpkins, gourds, and all kinds of squashes. The pumpkin lanterns and black cat add just enough whimsy to get us into the Halloween spirit!





Our 2nd place winner was - "Our country home in the fall"

Our congratulations to Rhonda of Salt Lick, Kentucky
entry #1
We want people to drive by our home and realize that there is a lot of love here. We have never had a lot of money to decorate, so for the 33 years we have been married, we've collected decorations for each season, year after year, and all we add to the collection, are the fresh flowers, in the fall, it's mums. We have a "mum" jar, and we pitch our extra change in it each year, so that's how we come up with the money to get them, and never miss it.
