The cutest fall garland (and simple photo booth) in minutes!

This week on the homestead there is fall foliage starting to turn yellows, oranges, and reds; black-gold compost being spread; apples and pumpkins being picked; and paper plate candy corn being hung. Let me explain…

We wanted a fun activity for our small town’s Harvest Party. When we threw together the easiest, cutest garland that inspired the simplest photo booth that was the biggest hit, I knew I had to share.

In some ways, it doesn’t feel too much like fall around the farm these days. We’re enjoying Indian Summer afternoons. And everywhere we turn it looks more like spring than fall, with the most adorable barn kitties pouncing around, loads of 2-week-old bunnies in cages in the barn, and a sweet baby chick often tucked under her momma’s wing.

Soon our family will be assembling our Thankful tree.

My marine biology student even took the weekend off from her beloved ocean-front college life to come meet the new barn kitties.

There’s lots for drop-in visitors to see these days, for sure. Our youngest visitor this week couldn’t get enough of Scout and Selah. She especially loved petting their thick furry fall coats.

Truth is, I’ve been so busy denying fall, our local Harvest Party (which my daughters and I love preparing for every year) snuck up on me. I am thankful for this sweet-and-easy fall garland and fun photo booth.

p.s. We enjoyed a beautiful New England drive, complete with some early fall foliage. Sit back for just a minute, relax, and ride along.
