Autumn’s Arrival ~ Part 1

Welcome Fall Wreath
“By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
with summer’s best of weather
and autumn’s best of cheer.”
~Helen Hunt Jackson
Cooler temperatures.
Falling leaves.
Shorter days.
Autumn has officially arrived On Sutton Place.
 Fall Front Door Decor
The ferns came out of my planters
and my grapevine trees went in.
Fall Porch Decor Front Door
I’ve had this wreath for a few years.
I try to add something new every year.
This fall it was the berries.
 Welcome Fall Wreath 
Last fall it was the homespun star garland.

The grapevine trees are an eBay purchase.
I tried to find some locally but never could.
I put ivy in my deck planters in the spring.
Then in the fall, I pluck it out
and put it in the corners of the planters.
The ivy grows up the trees and circles around on it’s own.
It stays green through Christmas…if I remember to water it!
I looked high and low for some sort
of Autumnal fabric that had blues and greens.
I really didn’t want to put away my door mat.
I found just the thing.
Stay tuned for Part 2.

    Ann, your front door is beautifully decorated for Fall. Your grapevine trees are so gorgeous. I have never seen them before. I love your wreath. The stars are soooo cute!! Visiting from Savvy Southern Style link party.

  16. Ann it looks as if you are well on your way into Fall!! Love the Fall touches, it is so perfect for your home. I am trying to get into the mode, but summer weather is still here so I am not quite there, but I am starting to embrace some subtle changes in the air. In fact that is what my post is about today!!! Happy Fall to YOU!! Kathysue

  17. Very pretty! I love the trees and ivy in the urns.

  18. Jo's This and That says:

    I love it! Gorgeous wreath and pots!

  19. I LOVE your wreath and look at the little puffy stars! This is just wonderful. You did a fantastic job.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  20. Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    The colors in your fall wreath look stunning against your front door color. Aren't you glad you painted it that color? Can't wait to see what kind of rug you found.

  21. Tammy@Beatrice Banks says:

    I just love your big ol' pop of autumn on your front door! Your porch looks as clean and crisp as a whistle!
    Thanks for stopping by today. Your comment made me laugh b/c I honestly did forget how to write a post! My mind went completely blank at first. It's all coming back to me. ;)
    The next move will not be permanent but we'll be there 5 years for residency. That's my next post. Dread moving again but it's part of the journey.
    Hope you are having a great school year so far!

  22. Honey at 2805 says:

    Wll, Fall has arrived at Sutton Place. What a great wreath! I'll be looking forward to the rest of your Fall decor!

    I hope you will bring one of your projects or posts to my Potpourri Friday Party this week. Link-up starts on Thursday afternoon. Without a doubt, your participation will help make the party better!

  23. Comeca Jones says:

    I love the fabric stars.

  24. This looks so beautiful Ann! It's very welcoming. I love the grapevine trees. I'm amazed that the ivy lasts the winter.

  25. Cozy Home Scenes says:

    I love your wreath, but I think the gold against your pretty blue door is what makes it so stunning!

    I'm just now beginning to buy my craft supplies for fall, so I'll soon be having some new things too. I'm in the fall mood now, but between the last 3 days of rain and still having hot weather, it doesn't feel quite time for fall yet. We'll get there in a few weeks.

  26. I love the grape vine trees and your gorgeous fall wreathe, it is wonderful! Everything is looking very fall-ish at your house.
    Hugs, Cindy

    fall is most defintaly in the air at Sutton Place. Richard from My Old Historic house.

  28. At The Picket Fence says:

    Everything is looking just gorgeous Ann! I absolutely love those grapevine trees and you look ready to welcome in the new season! :-)

  29. Ann, Great wreath. You reminded me to look for mine. I need to rework mine so I'm looking at yours to "steal" some ideas. :)
    Your grapevine topiaries are great. Love the berries and ivy. We have tons of wild muscadine vines I keep saying I'm going to use for something.
    I really love everything you're doing with your home and blog. You go girl!

  30. adventuresindinner says:

    Lovely! Can't wait to do this as soon as the workmen pack their bags and leave :)

  31. Jessabells says:

    Wow, Ann. Beautiful. Happy Fall!

  32. Ann, Your entry looks beautiful. Vary fall. I love the trees.


  33. Ceekay- Thinkin of Home says:

    Here's my address! Oh wait – it is probably too far for you to come and get me started…but honestly 114 degrees is just too hot to decorate in….I will get there eventually. I LOVE your wreath!

  34. Ricki Jill Treleaven says:

    Very cute, Ann. I really like the puffy stars :D

  35. Something Nice and Pretty says:

    So neat! Love the idea with the grapevine tree, I have one that I bought years ago from The Gooseberry Patch and it wasn't cheap so I've never sold it at the yardsales. I have one big planter so I might give this a try!
    I love your wreath and how you add to it every year!

  36. Yvonne@StyleBurb says:

    I'm in love with those large scale planters of yours, Ann, and grapevine trees are so perfect for fall. Plus, I can't resist sunflowers… I think I'll plant some next year!

  37. ❀❀❀Ðαωᾔ❀❀❀ says:

    Lovely! It all looks so nice and fresh. I love fall colors. It couldn't get any better:)

  38. All looks blessing and crispy fall feel. Love it.

  39. Pamela Gordon says:

    Hi Ann, your entry door looks very pretty. I really like your wreath. I have put a few fall things out too but our flowers are blooming so beautifully right now that it still looks like summer! Have a great week. Blessings, Pamela

  40. refresh reStyle says:

    Ann, I love those huge sunflowers! Actually love it all, so welcoming!

  41. Ginger Zuck says:

    Absolutely lovely Ann. I love the look of your front door. Now, if it stops raining, I hope to get mine redone this week, but off to work I go today! No decorating!

  42. Kim @ Savvy Southern Style says:

    Ann, I love your wreath and those grapevine trees. I think they sell those here at Hobby Lobby. I have not begun to decorate for fall yet. Love getting inspired by others though.

  43. I love that you add something new to that wreath each year. That's brilliant – you get to have a tried and true combined with fresh and new. (that was kinda poetic, wasn't it). Anyway,..your entry looks great.

  44. NanaDiana says:

    Oh~ It is looking like Fall at your front stoop! Love the wreath AND the topiaries! I don't know where you live but it must be temperate climate because my ivy is frosted and gone by early to mid October. xo Diana

  45. Your entryway looks so inviting and festive Ann, perfect!

  46. So pretty Ann!

    I put mums in urns for our front porch, over the weekend and did a small fall arrangement. Loving the cooler temps.

  47. looks lovely and i love the color of that door!

  48. Your entranceway is so welcoming. Love the big sunflowers. Nice.:)

  49. Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow says:

    LOVE that wreath, Ann!!! It is gorgeous! Sunflowers are some of my favorites! Your entry is as inviting as fall itself! blessings ~ tanna
