15 Delightful Fall Arrangements

At the Country Living Fair Atlanta 2017 there were so
many delightful Fall arrangements everywhere. I snapped 
pictures of my favorites to use them for inspiration in 
decorating my own home, porch and yard. Would you 
like to see them too and get ideas for your Fall decor?

In no particular order, here is #1...

This was one of larger arrangements. It took several
pictures to get it all in. It was on the back side of a 
large fireplace. They cleverly used firewood in the
composition of mums, roses, pansies and small bushes. 
Burlap and straw were used to hide the pots.

All of the mums, plants, pumpkins used in the arrangements were
 going to be sold at the end of the fair.

The designers used corn stalks to add height in taller 
areas in conjunction with mums in elevated wire urns.
Burlap was used to cover pots in the urns.

This grouping is visible in the back of the previous photo.

The gray shelf held two more clever but easy arrangements.

This one had one of the few cut stems that I saw.
Most of the fall arrangement elements were still in pots 
but magnolia will hold up well even without water for days.

Indian corn, small pumpkin, ornamental kale and burlap
make this an easy but attractive arrangement to duplicate.

This vendor's wooden bread bowl arrangement has
 a nice combination of Fall elements.

Tall potted grasses were used near some of the speaker tents.
This vintage-looking tub had purple loropetalum, a green
euonymus plant, a mum and fountain grass. 
This type arrangement would look good on a porch.

This is a similar outdoorsy arrangement with two tall
elements, two mums and a pumpkin in a tub. I like the
way they used straw to hide the pots in the containers.

This tub arrangement has more varied heights with two
mums, a cypress bush and fountain grass. 
All of these could be planted in your yard after Fall. 

This basket arrangement of Indian corn, a mum, a 
pumpkin and two loropetalum nestled in burlap is a good DIY.

This was a tall basket that probably most of us don't have 
the space for but the elements of a mum, ornamental cabbage
and kale, green euonymus, sapphire cypress and fountain
grass could be duplicated in a shorter container. 

This was quite a large arrangement with mums, pumpkins,
oranamental cabbage and kale.

These next three Fall arrangements make good use of 
straw bales for height and volume.



I'll finish with my #15 "arrangement". I have never
seen first I could not figure how it was done.

This was the largest installation of the corn stalks, hay bales
and mums I saw but there were smaller versions too.

The hay bales made convenient places to sit down. 

The following comments and pictures are just a continuation of #15.
This version (I think meant to soften the look of the porta
potties) gave insight into how the stalks were standing up.

A wooden pallet is up on its side. The corn stalks are probably
wired on to the pallet. Hay bales are on either side of the pallet
holding it up. The mums add color. There may be more to
it than that but it would be worth a try. It is unique.

Here is another size...
I'm not sure the corn came with the stalks or if they were wired on later. 

You may have porches, fences, etc. where you could try 
corn stalks on structure you already have.

Here are corn stalks attached to a fence. 

Well we still have three weeks until Thanksgiving to use 
some of these ideas in our Fall decorating!
