I've been so late this year getting my chrysanthemums. Some years I buy them as soon as they come out, and other years I don't get any at all. This year I seem to have gotten in just under the wire. Hopefully, we will not get a severe frost for a few more weeks yet, so I can enjoy their color.
I've gathered my mums on our small front porch, which is an area we pass by every day coming into and out of the house. You would think with all that traffic I would pay more attention to making this area look nice, but somehow it always gets overlooked. The bench is always on the porch but I've added most of the other things just for fall.
(Actually, the rather ragged rug came out of our mud room. And I think it ought to go on it's way to the dump!)
I set up a little basket here, with a homemade zucchini muffin from my favorite prepared foods and butcher shop, Perotti's. The basket is from Target, the cup was a thrift store find, and the pitcher belonged to my mother.
The brown transferware plate is by Churchill, from HomeGoods. I used a linen tea towel as a napkin.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, dear bloggers!
