Mums are prolific in fall and can be found everywhere. It's a nice and welcoming touch to place flowers by the front door. A simple way to add texture is to lay a grapevine wreath on the top of a planter before placing a pot of flowers in the planter. Last year I used these urns, a grapevine wreath , and topped it with pumpkin rather than flowers. Dressing one's nest is so much fun!
