Announcing: The “Perty” Porch Contest!


Here’s Kasey’s porch, isn’t it perty?  She decorated with her family last week!

Perty porches – it’s a Southern thing.  Sure, you may have a pretty porch, or a really lovely porch – but around here, we like ‘em “perty” :)

Yesterday was the official 1st Day of Fall, and to kick off our favorite season, Team Time 2 Save would like to invite you to enter our 10-Day long “Perty Porch Contest”!

There are two ways to enter:

1.)  You can send us a picture.
(Show off your own Perty Porch, Perty Door Decor, or even your living room window covered in construction paper candy-corn)

    We use hay that my husband has left over from job sites and get pumpkins from various customers as gifts for our girls for Halloween. He just got me the Scarecrow on Clearance somewhere for pennies on the dollar. The wreath I purchased years ago on clearance as well. The wood holder was found in the woods so we put it to use!

    I recently made my 1st ever fall wreath and I must say, it turned out beautifully! I live in an apartment complex so unfortunately don’t have a porch to decorate. I scrounged around online until I found a wreath I wanted to mimic. I then went to Michael’s and purchased: 1 bag of green (the “pretty” green, not the brownish green) fake moss, 1 styrofoam wreath, 5 small fake pumpkins w/ stakes (I actually purchased 2 small pumpkins, 2 a bit bigger, and 1 gourde), and a roll of 6in wide burlap. Then, using a LOT of glue/glue gun, I glued moss to the wreath, stuck the pumpkins down at the very bottom/center of the wreath in a cluster, and tide wrapped the burlap around the top of the wreath (leaving enough room to make a bow where the door hanger is). Simple and elegant!

    I like to use and “Have” to get pumpkins and Mums every year! We don’t celebrate Halloween so there are only pretty Fall decorations for us on our porch! One frugal decorating tip is to look around in your backyard for leaves, pine cones, and acorns to use for a nice do it yourself potpourri or to make a centerpiece for the table.
