Great Fall Pottery Decorating

Finding ways to decorate this time of year is easy and inexpensive.  Just select a clay garden pot, metal garden urn, or concrete garden planter,  fill with edible plants, herbs, leaves, branches, gourds and pumpkins.  It's so fun to do and we have a few cute ideas.

Vertical displays are making a big splash on patio walls and porch decorations.  We love the idea of stacking pumpkins between layers of branches & leaves.  To create topiaries, sandwich bay wreaths between pumpkins stacked in a sandstone urn, and top with a small pumpkin.  You can carve the pumpkins with different designs, you can then add candles or electric lights to help illuminate them.

Take a low garden tray or plant saucer, and fill with pre-moistened soil mix and fill with succulents.  Add them closely to each other so there isn't a lot of space between each plant.  Fill crevices with moss which thrives in well drained soil in sun or part shade as do the succulents.  Top with pumpkins for weight and interest.  Water when the soil dries out and leave outside until it freezes.  This looks lovely on a garden table.

Take garden planters and fill with the ever popular Mums.  Each fall all nursery and garden centers are full of them.  Use deep dark bright colors in red, orange and yellow.  Fill in around the containers with gourds, pumpkins and evergreen plants.  At seasons end transplant them to the yard or other smaller planter pots.  Enjoy for several more seasons until they outgrow their containers and then re-pot.
