At the Front Door ~


I picked up new, very traditional, triple

boxwood ball topiaries for our front door..

a pair  of them.

But here’s the twist, I’ve planted them, in these simple, vintage containers. 

I love the combination of the more the refined plants in the

rustic, white washed metal planters.

  So festive for the holidays!

I also replanted  the fancy fluted urn situated on

on our hammered copper table. I selected

two varieties of ruffled green & white kale…

and black & white  pansies and violas for

all  of the front door containers.

The dark ones 

are  a favorite of mine. They’re called…


I think you can see why :)

I pick up a few of these every year. It’s one of my

favorite little fall rituals. I love the B & W  combo.

I also added a simple white pumpkin on a

pewter tray and a little rock I had

engraved with our son’s name…

it’s a perfect start for my

Halloween  decorating,
