It has finally turned cool and I am loving the crispness that is in the air, how about you? Is it cooling down where you are? Today I am sharing How to Make an Easy Purple Fall Floral Arrangement. I am trying to enjoy every single last flower bloom I can before they all fade into winter's rest.
One problem I often have when dreaming up arrangements like these for around my home is: containers. Containers really can be a critical element in making a lovely centerpiece. For this arrangement, I wanted a “fresh” from the garden type of feeling.
But I wanted the blooms to last for as long as possible, meaning I needed to keep the mums in soil.
I had my eye on this basket but was stumped at first… how could I load it up with soil and not make a mess everywhere? And then inspiration struck!
- Basket (or other container)
- Trash bags (for lining basket, if necessary)
- Purple Mums
- Lambs Ear
- Purple Petunias
- White Pumpkins
- Baby Boos
I am particularly pleased with this type of arrangement because many of these plants can be transplanted later and continue to be enjoyed!
I have a pair of these mum's and am thinking of potting them to flank my mud room door… we'll see if I work up the energy for that. I've been making great progress in my kitchen and look forward to sharing a sneak peek of the progress wit you soon!
I love the tinge of purple they get as they age.
I think an arrangement like this is grand for a table (think Fall entertaining!) but it is equally charming for a coffee table or buffet!
Before I go I wanted to share about a brand-new ebook I've just written as a follow-up to my 5 day challenge. My new ebook is 30 Ways to Add Beauty, Balance, & Joy to Your Everyday Life. I have had hundreds of people go through the 5-day challenge and I've had wonderful feedback so I'm thrilled to offer this followup 30 day challenge to inspire you to live a happier and more fulfilling life! The book is available in my shop but there is a special price available to subscribers – be sure to subscribe to my email list to reveal the deal!
I'll be making a similar arrangement to this on a Hometalk Facebook LIVE on Tuesday at 11am EST! Tune in or come back here to see the video – I'll add it here soon after the show.
I hope you found an inspiring idea or two. I'll be back soon with another pretty fall Pumpkin arrangement, so please stay tuned!
