Fall Decorations



Decorating for the fall can be very fun with some simple basic steps.  First, you need to take out your old summer annuals from the window boxes and cutting back any summer foliage on the ground.  At our local nursery, we purchased beautiful mums in white to coordinate with the white pumpkins.


Then, add an abundance of fall leaves purchased at any craft store.  Next you want to add some simple decorations, here we added white pumpkins.  We also added some hydrangeas, pussy willow branches and sticks we purchased at Ikea.  We placed the white pumpkins in bunches which makes it look more natural than spacing them apart


To decorate for Halloween, we added this black cat that we found at Walgreens for $9.99.  .  


Above are other planters we have decorated.  By simply adding fall leaves and white pumpkins, you can make a boring planter come to life!



Here, we have decorated a broom with a big bow and black tulle.  We added a witches hat with black roses to decorate for Halloween. 




Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your home with a few simple pumpkins.  These beautiful black and white pumpkins were found at Home Goods.


Decorating for Thanksgiving is very simple, just add a few more pumpkins.  Here we added an orange pumpkin and more foliage.   Below we have added a cute scarecrow to our window box.
