Fall Colors on the Front Deck

dsc_0794ew-titleLiving where we do, in a rural wooded area, we are surrounded by the magnificent colors of autumn.

dsc_0802eI wanted to bring a little bit of that color to our front deck, which is the entrance we most frequently use . My first step was to add some “fallish” plants and color to the barrel planter.

dsc_0549ecThe bright colors of the coleus, mums, and pansies were my inspiration when I created this year’s fall wreaths with a little more color than last year’s version shown below.

A wThis year, I have incorporated a little blue, not exactly a traditional fall color, but I think it works well with the more customary golds, browns, and rust.

Leaves in variegated shades of green, seed pots, and berry stems plus a pop of bright blue complete the look. I decided to forego adding a bow, but used burlap ribbon to hang the wreaths.

That’s our fall look for the deck. What do you think of my non-traditional color choice?

    Looks great and I think the added brightness is good when you get those occasional cold, gray days! I have used touches of teal with the traditional fall colors for the past 2-3 years in my fall decorating of our great room. This year I added some blue and white porcelain pieces to the dining room tabletop.
