2 Simple changes for a new look on the front porch for autumn

Yesterday I shared a look at our front entry dressed for autumn
with magnolia garland, pumpkins and lanterns.

And today- it is all about going a little more bold
by changing just 2 things.

I am not usually a bold and beautiful autumn colors kind of girl.
And so, that gorgeous magnolia garland and wreath is pretty amazing-and neutral
 and a favorite look of mine
all through fall and Christmas.

But sometimes, I want to go big and bold...
and when it comes to saying 'Welcome Autumn'  in a bigger way
a  bright bittersweet berry wreath
against a black door
with brass accents ...
well, it kind of knocks me over.

I know it is a simple combination
but it is irresistible.
I mentioned in my post yesterday that I did a quick change with the look of the front door
with just 2 things.

The first was that wreath.
I took the magnolia garland and wreath down
and put up this Fall Berry Wreath from Balsam Hill.

Serious black and white and autumn love.

Up next, I moved some of those muted princess pumpkins 
and brought out a sprinkling of traditional orange pumpkins.

The funny thing about those Cinderella pumpkins is that they will lean a bit more orange
 if you mix them with orange- so feel free to leave them
or just do a little shuffling around.

and stepped back and called it good. 

So with just two changes- from magnolia to fall berry
and from muted to traditional pumpkins...
 the front entry looked completely different.

I am kinda liking the bold and beautiful.

I am excited to be joining my friends and Balsam Hill for the Fall in Love
