Even with all the beautiful fall colors which abound in Central New York, the gray skies and shorter days can cast a gloomy shadow over your home. Now is a great time to head to the nearest pumpkin patch and load up the car with gourds of every shape, color, and size to spice up your home's exterior.

Fast And Easy Fall Decorating For Planters & Window Boxes

It's time to transition your planters and window boxes from Summer to Fall.  You don't have to spend a lot of money or time on your planters in order to get colorful results.  This year I took the fast and easy route.

  I simply added aspects of Fall to whatever remained from my Summer plants.

My window boxes had Portulacas in them all Summer.  They were looking a little sad, but the colors were right for Fall so I used them as a base.... and simply added gourds and small pumpkins.

A very inexpensive fix for an empty planter - add a pumpkin and some moss!

For this larger planter I added branches and fake flowers to the leftover Summer flowers.

Another option for a large planter....

 add a pumpkin topiary and some flowers for color.

I placed a large pumpkin in the planter first, then I added the other pumpkins using hot glue in between to secure them in place.  I tucked moss between as filler.

The burgundy flowers are real mums, but the orange flowers are fake.

What cute ideas for a really nice looking entrance. Changes the whole curb appeal. I like adding some not so real foliage to the mix.
