Better late than never, right? Today I’m sharing our fall front window box, and honestly I was hoping to have this up on the blog a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, we got a below average cold spell right after I bought some plants and I just couldn’t plant them only to have them die a night later.
Then, because I waited, some the mums I bought started looking a little tired, and not the prettiest, so I switched gears and used some wicker, light up pumpkins as my focal point instead. I’m not sad about it, because they look amazing!
When I was pulling out all of my summer plants, I decided to leave in the ivy. It’s mainly dried at this point, but it still looks really pretty spilling over the front and sides. I also used some flowering kale, a small wispy grass and mini wicker pumpkins…
The arrangement is simple, but lovely and I’m looking forward to it lasting a little while.
I was going to fill the window box with several real pumpkins, but it seems like all the pumpkins that aren’t bright orange in our area are a little expensive and not worth the cost for how long they’ll last. I’m looking forward to using these wicker pumpkins in different settings, and I love that they light up. I found them at Hobby Lobby, and they were 40% off! I’ve linked a similar option below though.
I know I say it all the time, but simplicity is such a lovely thing. I loved how the light was coming through the windows and highlighting this sweet little spot of our home.
And I still stand by the fact that adding this window box to the front of our home was one of the best decisions. It’s such a charming and welcoming little spot, and I enjoy being able to see it from the inside of our home as well.
Next week, I’ll be sharing a fun addition I added to the porch for Halloween. If you look closely at the picture above, you’ll see a little sneak peek. 🙂 I’ve never really decorated for Halloween before, and I had so much fun with this cute addition! More next week!
I hope you enjoyed this simple fall front window box display!
