Fall Outdoor Decorating: Window Boxes

By September 6, 2017 June 12th, 2018 Decorating, Home Decorating, Home Page Categories

Decorating the front of our home, especially the window boxes is something I look forward to every season. Even though the temperatures don’t quite feel like Fall yet, the calendar says it’s time to get some Fall Outdoor Decorating done. 

FALL WINDOW BOXES -- Fall Decorating Tips

Even though I loved the Fall Window Boxes that I decorated last year, and kept them similar, this time I added a few more larger Fall Mums, more pumpkins and gourds and the ivy is different as well. The Fall outdoor decorating ideas are endless. One of the best tips I have is to take a walk. Go to the park, or even along side the road, and you can find lots of twigs, branches, leaves, all sorts of things you can use, and they are free.

Fall Window Box Decorations

  • Mums – these are from a nearby market, they were 5 for $25 and can be planted in the garden as a perennial
  • Pumpkins and Gourds – I love the greenish/gray pumpkin, it’s called Ghirardelli
  • Grasses from the yard and local county park
  • Ivy from the yard
  • PeeGee Hydrangeas from the neighbors yard and green Hydrangeas from our yard

Decorating Tips

  1. Begin with the largest items first, I added the 3 Mum plants
  2. Group together items, like the gourds
  3. Be sure to use different colors, all the colors of Fall blend really well together
  4. Add some height with tall grasses
  5. Fill in small openings with grasses, ivy or items from your yard or county park

To add to our Fall outdoor decorating, I added the wooden bench into the landscaping, and placed another Mum plant into a galvanized bucket, and an antique toolbox filled with small gourds and mini pumpkins. The wooden birdhouse was added for a little whimsy and added texture.
