fall porch decorating

Yesterday I went to the happiest place on earth, and it wasn't Disneyland.

Maybe I should say it was my happiest place on earth...

Al's Garden Center!

Every year they offer an amazing deal:
for $15.99 you get:
a small bale of hay
corn stalks
an 8" mum with just about any color you could imagine
and a pumpkin- any size!

Al's is a family run business, and they have been around the NW for a long time.  The second and third generations are now growing and running the business.  These Fall Harvest kits are grown by the grandkids!  Isn't that awesome!? All the money they make on these goes to their college fund!  :)


Here's a little tour of Al's just so you know why I love going there so much!


there were some pretty big ones in these bins for $1.49!!  What a deal!


All of their display table are this gorgeous.  It's so hard to walk away and not want to take it all!!

I just love these ceramic mushrooms. 
They would go great in my garden with my two gnomes that I hide in between the shrubs.

I got my Fall Harvest kit, and headed home. 
I was really tempted to get some more pumpkins (I got 4) and some more mums (only two).  I got my porch decorated, and I think I might have to go back in....
We'll see.  I'm wanting some of those little tiny pumpkin / gourds, but I haven't seen them yet.



I'm sure there will be more added to the porch, but for today, that's what it looks like!

Enjoy your Thursday!

  1. I love the corn stalk in the corner!! I wish we had a place around here with a deal like that!! Seriously! I think we paid close to $10.00 a pumpkin last year... crazy!!

  2. What a deal on Pumpkins! They can be pricey around these parts. Love the crow too! (and that chair reminds me of the movie Phenomenon :)

  4. Denise,
    Thank you for visiting Al's Garden Center and writing about our Fall Harvest Kits. Pumpkins, mums, straw bales and cornstalks are lots of fun in the fall. Pumpkins at Al's are an especially good buy at $1.49 for the whole pumpkin. Thanks again and have a Happy Halloween!
