The chill in the air today tells me that Fall has arrived. Make entertaining easy with these easy Fall arrangements made from clippings from the garden and a few fresh flowers from the florist.
This is an easy arrangement made in a plant saucer holding oasis and filled with fall leaves, a variety of mums, fresh artichokes, and topped with a unique pumpkin. Great for a dining room table.
Take a decorative cachepot and add oasis. Fill the container with a variety of leaves including nandina, maple, pittosporum, and dogwood. Next add garden hydrangeas and fresh apples attached by florist pics. This is great for a sideboard or coffee table.
This arrangement screams Fall. Take a glass cylinder vase and put 2 large heavy duty rubber bands around it. Next take Indian corn (remove the husks) and place in between the rubber bands around the vase. Use a decorative ribbon to tie around the vase and hide the rubber bands. Fill the vase with a variety of fall leaves and flowers from the garden. To finish off this arrangement, add fall leaves and decorative gourds around the base of the arrangement. This is great for an entrance table or side board.
Have fun decorating for the Fall season! Come in the shop for more great ideas on how to decorate your home for the holidays!
