Roll out the welcome mat!

With the first days of fall behind us and waking up to a bit of a nip in the air, we can't help but think of the upcoming holidays! Obviously you know it's been on our minds since we've featured several ways to decorate for fall. If you missed our lazy girl's guide to fall decorating, our easy DIY pumpkin topiary tutorial or our guest blogger Pottery Barn hack fall banner, you should check them out! 

When you visit, the first thing you see is the front porch, stoop or landing. Make it say, come on in y'all!

If you're low on time, try welcoming guests with a new, stylish welcome mat! This quick and easy strategy applies to any season but is especially sweet as we head into the holidays. 

Love it!

Of course I cannot resist something personalized like this one I got for Catherine from Personalization Mall.

I found this cutie there too and snapped it up for the beach house

I have to be honest, I stumbled upon these in my search for a double wide mat for my front doors. I have this one from Frontgate:

It's been stepped on, wiped on, peed on and who knows what else for nearly 6 years. It's time for a replacement.

Here are some options, which one of these is your fave?

And, no need to be coy...

Who needs a security system? Just be honest with potential thieves. This one says it all don't you think?

You know I like a DIY project just as much as the next gal, but I'm not crazy about coir. Curbly did a great job with here project, but I wanted to find something a bit softer.
