Some tips for Fall curb appeal, or anytime of year for that matter, include pulling out overgrown or unhealthy bushes, trimming the mature plants and installing larger or more modern address numbers. Also, sprucing up your porch with a little seasonal decor.
I’m also sharing great things I received for my birthday like an entertaining book, warm croissants delivered to our door and a fun Fall outfit. It’s Five Faves time with Annie and Cindy!
1. Fresh Fall Curb Appeal Ideas
Landscaping: We have some new tropical landscaping since the yard was all torn up from building the pool in the back.
Tip: Remove unhealthy shrubs, trim existing ones and add local plants and ground cover. Have you noticed that often when homes go on the market, scraggly overgrown bushes are removed to let the home shine?
Address numbers: We added new larger address numbers in a prominent space for a fresh look. These are 8″ high.
2. Simple Fall Porch
It’s so hot in Florida that real pumpkins won’t last long so I mix in real with faux terracotta-like ones from last year.
The preserved boxwood wreath can change seasonally with a ribbon.
These washed terracotta pots are from Home Depot (as are the mums). Later, closer to Christmas, we might add poinsettias.
The sturdy Adirondack rocking chairs are from Polywood.
3. Door Dash Fresh Croissant Delivery For Birthday Present
My brilliant friend, Annie sent these still warm croissants to our door the morning of my birthday. What a good idea!
4. New Book: Entertaining By The Sea
Mercedes and Mark gave this book to me “Entertaining By The Sea”. Lots of inspiration!
I think those are the last of the hydrangeas from our garden.
5. Blazer Coat Light Layer For Fall
Howard gave me this unlined and comfortable blazer for my birthday. I took it back to J. Jill for the correct size and it was on sale for 40% off (grab it while you can). I had enough money left over from the return to add the soft scarf. Update: I think the blazer is sold out online. Check your store.
