August 30, 2016
I have been busy, busy playing with my fall floral. I decided it was time to change out my summer front door wreath.
The time came to add some fall floral. I have been itching to do this but did not want to jump the seasons.
I went to the basement to gather some stems and containers and took them to the back porch to begin the process.
I have two of these metal door containers that I brought from the previous house.
The flowers in them are actually huge floral bushes that I bought at HL a few years ago.
(Yes. I am a hoarder. I keep things in my stash and reuse them as the seasons roll around.)
I don't have double doors now, so I though I would change up the containers. In comes my wonderful door basket that my daughter picked up for me in Lexington a couple of years ago.
I put the floral bush in the basket, and tada, a new arrangement. I love easy!
I put the extra arrangement on a back door, and put the basket arrangement on the front door.
Now, let's move to the front of the house.
Here is my newly made fall door arrangement ready to welcome guests. I just switched stems and a bow to my basket to create a completely new arrangement. Easy and inexpensive!
I added a burlap bow that I had on my summer wreath. It is a little bleached out from the summer's afternoon sun, but I think it still goes nicely with the basket.
I know that it is a while until fall officially begins...but I don't want to be late. I just had to begin tinkering and creating with my fall decor. These are my September colors...yellows and golds. They make me smile.
