Fall Window Boxes

by Chris on October 11, 2012

Before I say anything else, can I just tell you how much fun I’ve had reading your comments on our little birthday quiz? Sarah and I have been sharing responses, and we’re loving them! From your quiz anxiety to “hanging your head in shame” over your results, it’s been very entertaining. Thank you so much for playing along. And yes…we will definitely explain the answers tomorrow when we announce the winner!

However, let’s talk about the fall window boxes I promised you! I think it might take me a couple of seasons to really figure out what will work in these things. I really wanted something grand like the summer ones, but I’m a little more limited with fall plantings.

Like the front porch, I wanted something bold that people could see from the road. I found some really inexpensive mums ($2.50 a piece?) at Lowes. Not a bad price!

The tall grass was on clearance for .75  cents each, and it was just enough “wild” for each one. I plugged in some kale and small pumpkins as some filler, and I was pleased—enough.

This picture was taken right when I planted them (notice the small porch mums), but you get the idea. A nice pop of color, and a fun way to decorate for the changing seasons! Up next? Christmas! Ok….I’ll hold off for a minute.

Love how they turned out! The kale as a filler was a great idea! :)

Stunning. So much color. Those are really so pretty. I could never pull that off. Your home reminds me of the Father of The Bride house. It’s my dream exterior. Kind of want to hate you, but you are easy to love. Darn it!

Beautiful! Puts my urns with their dead petunias to shame! I did no outdoor decor this fall – just too much else going on I guess!
