Fall Door Basket

I've been on the lookout for a door basket for quite a while now. Why is it that door baskets are hard to find - at least in my area.  I found a lovely one at the Three Rivers Pottery recently while visiting friends in North Carolina. I love the shape and the natural rustic look and color of the thick woven vine.  The picture really doesn't give it justice. You have to feel and touch the basket to really appreciate the pattern and texture.

I won't bore you with how I put it together. Just show you the pictures.  But I will tell you I wanted to make something subdued - not shouting the bright orange shades of Fall.  An arrangement using muted colors like gold, ivory and tan with just a hint of orange in all of their fall floral beauty.

And finally, I placed a sunflower near the mesh ribbon instead of the burlap one I had made. What do you think?
This floral arrangement is a great touch for my fall décor - either inside or out.
What better way to welcome friends and neighbors with a basket overflowing with beautiful muted fall shades. 
Take a little time to enjoy,

  8. The idea of a basket, rather than a wreath, suggests the bounty of the fall season. Love that idea.

  13. That is just gorgeous! I like this so much better than a wreath. You have such a great eye for floral height and balance. I struggle with it and I think it's kind of an art. One that you have obviously mastered! Way to go! Pinned this as well!
