As the old saying goes， you only have one chance to make a first impression， and that’；s why we think it’；s important to add some finishing touches to your front door. It doesn’；t take a lot， but a nice welcome mat，some greenerypersonalized baby blankets， and a wreath on the door can make a world of difference. And give your guests and neighbors a hint to the fabulously stylish space you’；ve created on the inside. Here are our picks for creating a front door for late summer and early Fall：
We loved our Blue &； White Chinoiserie Collection so much， we decided to make it into a welcome mat! These super chic ginger jars never go out of style and their dramatic silhouettes look fantastic printed on 100% natural coir.accent pillow case baby burlap nursery
It’；s a no brainer to hang a wreath on the door once the holidays are around the corner， but we actually love the idea of something up all year long. Our Adirondack basket is the perfect solution —； switch it out from season to season. In the summer， we like using hydrangeas which you can let dry out and in the fall， add in leaves from the yard.
A place to sit goes a long way to making your front porch feel inviting， but if you don’；t have enough room for a chair or sofa， perhaps consider adding a garden stool or a small bistro table and chairs. It sure is convenient when you need to put down your cup of coffeewhile locking the door orputting something down when your hands are full. Plus， it adds a little color to your front door!
Speaking of color， it’；s an important element to consider， even if you’；re on Team Neutral. Color will draw attention from the street to your door， creating a focal point. It definitely ups the curb appeal of any home. We like to draw inspiration from the plants and landscape around the yard of a house. For example， if you’；ve got big hydrangeas bushes， consider vibrant blues.Or perhaps you love plantingbeds of petunias in the Spring. Choose magenta or deep purple accents.

Rebecca from Cooking With My Kid is here to share a fantastic field guide for an activity that your lil’ one is sure to love. Take it away Rebecca!…This morning I surprised my kid with an indoor bird watching expedition complete with make-your-own binoculars and breakfast trail mix. He’s been talking about it all day long.The bird watching expedition starts with our special breakfast trail mix which we take along while we search for birds throughout the house using our home made binoculars.My kid uses the Bird Watching Guide I created to find each of the birds hidden throughout the house. Once he’s identified and found a bird, he circles it on the guide and heads off to look for the next.
