Fall Decorating at Home Depot's Garden Center

Does this put you in 
the Fall spirit? 

Last year I went with a Halloween theme for the outside of my home. This year, I decided to do strictly Fall decor. I thought it would work for both Halloween and Thanksgiving!

Home Depot had everything I needed. I purchased pine bark nuggets (mulch), orange mums, and pumpkins. A big shout out to the guys that worked in the garden section (Harahan store)! They lifted the heavy bags of mulch and snapped a picture of me in their cute Fall area setup. Thanks!!!

But you know, there's always ONE BUZZARD in PARADISE! HaHaHa When I was snapping pics outside of Home Depot, one guy said "I would LOVE to be in that pic!" I said to myself, if you don't keep walking, you're going to get one of these pumpkins UP YOUR NOSE! :) HaHaHa

Stop by the blog tomorrow and find out where I went after leaving Home Depot! Another cool place! You'll see me in the same outfit for the next couple of posts, because I did all of this in ONE day. LOL

Remember, I blogged about this Banana Republic purse after seeing it in a magazine? Well I bought it and love it! I love it in black and they have it in some great COLORS. It's the perfect little bag for on the go!

Have a great Wednesday everybody!

I really like it how people decorate their houses in the States. It definitely puts one in the right spirit.
Love your new bag very much!

What is up with creepsters being so blunt these days? I don't get it.

But I do like your fall decor theme. I think that will be great for both Halloween and turkey day.

Haha you should have left the guy get in the picture...I agree with you with using strictly Fall decors for Halloween (and then if you get possessed with the Halloween spirit later lol you can always add 1 or 2 Halloween items to your Fall decor)
P.S. The photos are gorgeous!Can't wait to check your next post :)

Jessica said...

Ahhh love the colors!! The plants for $11.98 are so pretty I must go buy some!

Irene said...

Very beautiful photos! Looks like you're having a good time with fall decorations and it seems a nice tradition! I'm sure it'll look great :)

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I totally enjoyed looking at all this beautiful fall decor. This really gets me in the spirit of the season. I always seem to get buzzards who want to be in my photos too LOL :) That bag is totally adorable and you look so cute in that photo with the scarecrow.

Thanks for the sweet welcome back Kim! Hope you're well!

I was thinking just today that I want to decorate my front step with Mums and pumpkins so we will be twins! I will have to check out Home Depot (where I did two fashion photoshoots and received quite strange glances!)

I love this post Kim and it's actually making me want to carve a pumpkin already. Your home depot story with the guy trying to be in the pic is so funny. You look really cute and I love how you put this whole post together with all the photos. So professional


Unknown said...

Kim, I love all of these photos but I think the very last one is my favorite! I have pumpkins all around my living room. Every now and again, I cook one up!

I love holiday decorating, so much fun :)) They don't decorate here like in the states, but, I still do a little at my house :) Have a super day doll :)

miss b said...

I would love to have a wander around this lovely garden centre. They have created some cute displays (must be fun designing them!) and that's a nice picture of you next to the scarecrow.

Mica said...

Love the bag you bought - so cute!

We don't really decorate our homes here but I know the Americans really get into it, hope you can share some pictures of your finished decorations! :)

Lorie said...

That is one AWESOME Home Depot. It's amazing! I'm totally in the Fall Spirit check out my recent blog post.

Coco said...

Sweetie this is another gorgeous post! I love celebrating every season and savour (still dreaming from the Harrod's post) what nature offers. Here in Italy there's not much of a Halloween tradition (yet), plus my daughter would get scared by a Halloween setting, but I find it fascinating.Why don't you post some pics from last year decorations?the purse is lovely and so are you among the pumpkins!!That's why the man wanted to be in the picture ahaha. Big hugs my dear Kimmy :-xxxxxxxx

oomph. said...

Kim: you are slowly getting me in a festive mood and may i say shopping mood too after seeing that purse. I clicked right on just to find i adore blue as much as black. Grrr....gotta blame you for that..ha.

Love all the stuff at Home Depot, i have never shopped their as for decoration needs but they seem to have great selections. We will take a little munchin to the Pumpkin Patch at a church again this year, hoping to get some good pics to add to our photo books.
