Pumpkin Bread a Fall Favorite!

One of my favorite fall recipes is Pumpkin Bread. My mom used to bake it and I have carried on the tradition. Pair it with your morning cup of coffee or tea. My favorite a latte and it is the perfect fall treat.

Fall First impressions

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the change of weather, Fall Fashion, Football and just about everything pumpkin. In fact, I can already smell a pie baking for Fall First impressions. So it was no surprise that I immediately headed to Hobby Lobby.  Latte in hand when I saw the first leaf fall. The time had come to stock up on some new fall décor. They having a 40% off sign on sale so I have gotten a little more than I planned. But creating seasonal décor on your front porch is a nice warm welcome for your guests.

First I needed to refresh my wicker planter a little to make it a little more autumnal. So I added a few pumpkin picks. A simple seasonal change.

This chalkboard is up year-round, and it is so fun to write a birthday message or Happy whatever holiday it may be. The pictures add a nice personal touch too which I really enjoy. My husband has become quite the chalkboard master. And can copy most anything I find for him on Pinterest. As you can see we are big University of Oregon Duck Fans, more on that coming in another post, so stay tuned. Quack!!

I have had this “C” initial for a long time, I just added a little pumpkin pick to spice it up.

When I saw this autumn swag I knew it would look perfect hanging from my porch light. I attached it with a burlap bow for some additional autumnal flavor. It is best for fall first impressions.

I love switching up this black urn planter for every season. This year I wanted to get a little crafty and make a pumpkin topiary. My first stop was Pinterest and I found a ton of inspiration. The pumpkins were from Hobby Lobby but I did have to do a little painting.

Painted the bottom one in white and added the black stripes (I couldn’t find the right size in white which is why I had to paint it). The tutorials I found mentioned using tape to create the stripes. But I decided to just freehand following the natural shape of the pumpkin #artist.

The middle one I painted black and added the gold polka dots, I left the top one as it is. The next step, after letting the paint dry, was assembling the topiary. All I had to do was break off the stems of the bottom two and hot glue them all together. I tucked the fall leaves all around the bottom pumpkin and just glued a little sprig to the top two. Super easy. I already had the lantern so just added ribbon, pumpkins, gourds, and the project was done.

I will be gathering pumpkins all month in a variety of colors to create my own little mini pumpkin patch. The Cinderella pumpkin is my favorite, do you have a favorite type?

 

Happy Fall Y’all!
