Have you noticed? The maple trees are starting to change and the dogwoods are well on their way to red. I love this time of year when the sky is a startling blue, the leaves are beginning to show off their colorful displays, and jackets are a part of our morning routines once again. This means it’s time – time to add some fall touches to your home decor. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices running:
Bittersweet is one of our favorites here at SBP. Both my family and Elizabeth’s know that fall means bittersweet around the house.
I’m about to talk about pumpkins, so here are my segue photos!
So, let’s move on to pumpkins. If you want to see an impressive display, try to go by Whole Foods:
While spring, summer and fall are all seasons to celebrate hydrangeas, fall showcases dried hydrangeas and limelight hydrangeas the best:
Sunflowers, cabbages and mums round out my favorite autumn flowers:
Mums – Can you believe I got these ENORMOUS mums for only $10? I bought them across from the Green Hills Post Office at Johnny Howell’s farm stand.
While I was at Import Flowers, on Murphy Rd, buying many of the flowers pictured in this post, I saw these gorgeous flower bouquets being made for a function at Vanderbilt:
Import Flowers will arrange flowers for you, which I did not know. The above consists of 5 bouquets per bucket and you can pretty much tell where each bucket ends in the picture. That first heap of flowers is one bucket! Anyhow, Vanderbilt ordered 48 bouquets and asked for teal, plum, and yellow – with an autumn theme – and a budget of $10 per bouquet. So, for $50 per bucket, this could be yours! The bouquets start around $8 and you need to order at least 5, a bucket full, for Import Flowers to take the order. I know I will definitely be taking advantage of this service in the future!
I hope you all are inspired to embrace fall and all of its bounty.
