Living where we do, in a rural wooded area, we are surrounded by the magnificent colors of autumn.
I 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.
The 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.
This 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.
A little brighter yellow and touches of burgundy also brighten the overall look of the wreaths.
The faux botanicals used to embellish grapevine wreath forms were purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I chose faux hydrangeas in beige and bright yellow, as well as mums, ferns, and eucalyptus in shades of burgundy. 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?
