Halloween Porch 2017

T-7 days until Halloween! My kids are so excited! Soon enough they will be "too old" for cheesy Halloween decorations and trick-or-treating, so I will cherish these years when it's all so fun for them! Much to my kid's dismay, we don't really do anything "scary" on our porch, but we do try to "decorate" and make it festive every year.

DIY: Modern Fall Wreath

Hi friends! The blog recently got a facelift and I'm loving the simplicity! I hope you like it too! I'm hoping it's a bit more visually appealing and easier to navigate. I realized through this whole clean up process that I've been blogging since 2011! It's not always been consistent and old posts seem so dated, but I love having this creative space on the internet. Thanks for reading!

Now, on to the DIY project! I have long been making DIY wreaths for my front door, but this one might be my favorite to date! I wanted to create something modern for fall, and this was simple to assemble and create.

Halloween Mantel (Skulls & Skeletons)

Happy October! We booked a last minute trip for the end of the month, the kids have chosen their Halloween costumes, and the Cubs made it to the postseason! It's now time to get the house ready! The only indoor decorating I do for Halloween is on the mantel. It's a large space and a focal point in our open concept home, so it seems like the perfect spot to add a little bit of "spookiness"!

Fall Porch 2017

Hello and welcome to Life Love Larson blog! If you are hopping over here from Little Brags blog, I'm happy you are here! I'm excited to be a part of a Fall Festival Blog Tour hosted by Kendra at Joy in Our Home! Today is all about porches, but every day is a different theme related to fall! Links for all 30 blog posts at the end of this post!

I'm sharing our fall porch today! I like to switch things up on the porch towards the beginning of September. That's usually when I can start to find mums and pumpkins. Although this year, it seems sort of silly to decorate for fall when the temps in Kansas City have been in the high 80's all month! It's finally supposed to cool down starting today - yay!

Chalkboard Fall Bucket List 2017

Happy Friday and first day of fall! It's so hard to post about "fall" things when temperatures are still in the high 80's here in Kansas! I love the heat, but I'm ready for it to cool down a bit!

Every year I post about our chalkboard bucket lists and today is all about fall! I originally painted this chalk wall in our home 5 years ago. My kids were little then and I thought it would be a place where they could draw. I quickly found out that wasn't going to work because chalk walls are high maintenance if used on a daily basis! And chalk makes a mess! We've since made it a space for bucket lists and quotes...aka, I don't have to change it out very often!
