Decorating with Fall Mums
Ready or not, It’s mum season here in Wisconsin! This year I have been looking for unusual planters for my mums that might make them stand out a bit more. I have checked thrift stores, craigslist and clearance areas at some of my favorite stores. Every Fall I look forward to replacing my spring and summer annuals with mums ready to burst with color!
You can’t go wrong with galvanized steal buckets, just make sure you drill a hole in the bottom for drainage! Wooden creates like apple crates are adorable! I reuse my beautiful ceramic planters spring, summer, fall and Christmas! Besides ceramic planters you can use garbage cans, baskets, cloth bags, plastic pumpkins and even wheel barrows! The sky is the limit for planters. You can really play with color whether your colors are jewel tones or traditional fall harvest colors.
We just got our mums in at the garden center here at Trees Today Nursery. Its a nice cloudy, cool day and makes me think of fall already! Just in time for me to decorate my porch with mums!
Our mums are $12.95 or 3 for $34.95!
