A Fall Sunset and Evening on the Front Porch, 2016


Today I want to share how the front of our house looks all lit up in the evening celebrating Fall and Halloween!!!

But first, I want to share a lovey Autumn Sunset......
I shared several Summer sunsets in photos taken from our front porch this Season.....
The Sun is now no longer setting in the front of our home as Winter approaches.......
It is now setting to the side of our house where we can see it from the back yard....
Meaning the front of our townhouse will not get any Sun until April!!
I thought this Sunset was a perfect for Autumn!!
As Night falls, the lights in the front of our house come one by timer.......

Changing the look of our porch from this.........
To this.....
The electric candles in the windows have orange bulbs in them......
Love the glow those bulbs create......
As you walk up to our porch.....
 My Fall topiary with a candle inside of it.....

Candles in the lantern and in a Jack O Lantern.......
On the porch.....
A candle in the lantern.....
Orange lights added to the Tree in the corner....
Orange lights added to the garland on the railing....
 A candle in this smaller Jack O Lantern.......

The park bench in the yard....

Even though the porch is mostly decorated for Fall, it does have a bit of a spooky vibe at night!!
In my next post, I will be sharing my Halloween Tree and Village in the Dining Room...
So I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
