Top Two Tuesday!

Top 2 Halloween or Fall crafts/decor/party ideas

1.  Mums

Mums are my favorite fall plant.  I had the great idea to buy 2 of them to put on my front porch this year.  I have seen every time I have gone to the grocerty store and have just passed them up for one reason or another.  However, tonight I decided to head out to finally buy my mums.  It was such a sad sight when I drove around to every grocery store or home improvement store near my house only to find that the only mums left were the ugly, sick looking ones...oh, well, maybe next year!

2.  Corn Stalk and Hay Bale Decorations

A lot of people love decorating pumpkins for Halloween.  While I enjoy that, I like fall decorations that can carry on in to Thanksgiving better.  I love set-ups similar to the one above.  I don't think there is anything nicer than hay bales, corn stalks, a few pumpkins and maybe a scarecrow.  These also make a great set-up for the perfect picture!  =)

Head on over the The Undomestic Momma and tell us what your favorite fall decorations are!

i've always been afraid of mums because i kill just about any living plant that i am responsible for - however, i just found out that they are simply a gorgeous weed - i think i'm going to have to pick one up for my front porch! thanks for the great idea
