My Fall Basket:
Well, I took everyone’s combined advice and I:
1. Decided to keep the fall basket on the door since most of you liked it. I made it taller and skinner so I think it looks much better…less wide and overwhelming on the door.
2. I cut the whiter flowers off the bunch of sunflowers they were attached to. I dispersed them throughout the arrangement. For some reason, they looked a lot whiter in the photos I shared with you guys then they come across in person. In person, the centers of the white flowers are sort of creamy yellow. They look a lot better dispersed throughout the arrangement (now that I cut them off) instead of clustered along the bottom which is where they had somehow ended up since they are part of the sunflower bunch of flowers.
Sorry these pics were taken after dark…but hopefully you can see the changes I made…
I’m still looking for something viney and trailing to add along the bottom…
At the end of the fall season, I’m going to take this baby apart and buy some chicken wire to poke down in the basket…see if that will make arranging the flowers a little easier…that was another suggestion you guys had. Thank you to everyone!
