"Mums" the Word!

 I've been back and forth to one of our local nurseries buying Fall plants for outside and couldn't pass this pretty mum up for the metal container in our foyer. Love it's deep color! I simply tucked a piece of burlap inside the container and tied a bow around the mum using raffia. Voila...done!
 I also bought the indian corn hanging on my front door from them. The owner was making such pretty Fall arrangements while I was there.
 A little "Fall" in the foyer!
 
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your mums are beautiful. I have a plant stand almost like yours so, of course, now I am needing a pretty pot of mums....:))

Very pretty, Martina! You've brought Fall to that area in a nice way. I love that planter!

That's a pretty mum...you made it look so special by adding the raffia and the burlap to the planter. Love how you brought Fall to your entry way!

I love bright yellow mums, but that deep, rich red like yours is my favorite! Love what you did with the burlap, too. Very pretty and
fall-ish.

Fall in the foyer looks good! I just bought a few mum plants and some pumpkins yesterday. I am going to play with them on my front porch this afternoon.

Nice Fall touches. I like the mums inside. I always forget about using them indoors.

I love your mum wrapped in burlap. I brought home Indian Corn today too...haven't a clue what I will do with it, but it asked to come home with me. Your foyer looks beautifully autumnal.

It's funny- I never used to like mums and now I love them. They are great for Fall and I even like the smell of them- xo Diana

Those are beautiful Martina! I missed the huge mums at Costco this year so I need to stop by Wm and see if they have any left.
