Outdoor Fall Decor

I finally got the fall decor in the outdoor kitchen.  This was a big job, because we first had to empty the kitchen and hose it all down.  Then, wash the furniture, vacuum rug, and do the fall switcheroo.  The dining table goes back near the house and the living room set goes back here.

Now we are set to roast marshmallows and watch movies outdoors. 





When I look at pictures I realize my fireplace needs a wreath.  I hate to put a nail in that pretty stone, but I guess we will have to do it.  I found a pretty wreath at a local store, and if they get more in, they will call.  No nail till then.  












Behind the sitting area you can see a glimpse of the playhouse.




We decided not to move this little table back up to the balcony.  It will be a great spot for the grands to have lunch, or play a game.  We really never used it on the balcony.





There you have it ~ we can enjoy it for a few weeks and then it will be time to think about CHRISTMAS!!

OK, that's IT.

I just came and discovered that you have been a busy blogger. I nearly missed three posts! With every one, you make it difficult for me not to covet. I thought it couldn't get worse than the adorable playhouse, but no...

You have a wonderful outdoor kitchen that is nicer than my INDOOR one. I think a wreath will be beautiful there, btw, but I agree about not marring it with a nail until you need to.

This is really impressive, you know.

Beautiful! Oh what I wouldn't give for an outdoor fireplace, especially in the fall. I would spend every free second here in front of a fire, sipping apple cider!

hi Sue, Your outdoor space is fabulous. I love the stone on the fireplace too. What a great family retreat and I love how you have it all decorated for Fall.
i'm sure it will be fun to sit out there and watch scary movies for Halloween.
Have a great evening.

Your outdoor "living room" is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!! I would love to see a wreath on the FP, does Command make a hook that would work on the stone? I would check at Lowes or Home Depot. That could be your solution!!!! I would give anything for this space!!!!!!!! Fabulous!!!! XO, Pinky

It looks inviting! I do think you need a wreath or something to tie it all in. Can't wait to sit there in November.

Visiting from Open House Party. I love your outdoor space. So grand and inviting, all at the same time.

Sue said...

Your covered area is just wonderful! Luv the fireplace. Isn't it great to have a warm fire going to mesmerize you? We truly are enjoying our fire-pit in our new yard.
Instead of putting a nail in the stone foe your wreath, just get one of those Command holders at Wally World or the hardware store. They hold really well and no holes! woo hoo

What a gorgeous space!! You could use a 3M hook for the wreath :)

Honey at 2805 said...

Ginger Zuck said...

WOW, I love your outdoor living space... very beautiful. I found you from my friend Honey's party.

Bonnie said...

Your outdoor kitchen is so nice. Do those stick on hooks work on stone? I bought one that was chrome for a door and it looked nice! When you hung the wreath it didn't show anyway. Enjoy your outdoor family times.

Rettabug said...

Totally AWESOME! I'm slime green with envy over your yard & wonderful outdoor spaces, Sue!

Rettabug said...

Oh & I also recommend the 3M Command stick-on hooks...they come off with just a pull to the bottom adhesive & I've never had one damage a wall or wallpaper, so they'd be fine on your stone.
