31 Days To Savor~Fall Planter Decorating

This year I have the easiest trick to bring your summer planters from summer to fall for our 31 Days To Savor series.


Every year I take a sunny fall day and shift my porch from summer to fall.  It is a day I savor to be outside and to be creative.


Here is what I did this year to my porch planters.   At the end of the summer season I am sorry to say this is what my planters were a little sad and thirsty!  Since my plants were looking so tired, I didn’t waste my time or create a mess by pulling the plants out.  I just used them as is and embraced what color and texture the left over plants gave me.


First, I gathered up some different types of moss and fillers.  I like a little for leftovers to add to plants and containers through out the year too.


Then, I gathered some pumpkins, gourds, berry stems and decorative corn from the garden market.


Then, I found some pumpkins that stacked nicely on each other.  I surrounded them with stems of berries.  I like to use real berries, but this year I found these fake that I think still worked well.


Then, I filled in the empty spaces and dirt with moss.  I also put some moss in between the wiggly spaces around the pumpkins, both to help balance them as well as for the visual effect.



With my leftover pumpkins and gourds I decorated my porch bench.


And, I plopped some into various planters and a potted lunch box of summer succulents.



Now, it looks a little bit more fall festive when you come to my front porch.
