This is the perfect time to start getting ready for autumn & brightening the house with a splash of warm autumnal colours and shades. It is the time when the colours of leaves change from green to a beautiful range of browns, yellow, orange & reds. Many shrubs & trees produce amazing berries & seed heads which also look great around Halloween.
It is that time of year again when summer falls into Autumn and the nights draw in faster than an a witch flying through the sky on a broomstick! It is my favourite season, it’s a season of enchantment, one that nobody forgets as the months draw closer to Christmas and warm colours are needed brighten up any home.
Colour springs to mind, the nights draw in and everyone desires colour! The happy bright shades of Autumn, with scattered maple leaves in reds, yellows and orange autumnal shades are required to brighten and lift any shop window or display. Colour is craved. Colour draws attention! Draped maple leaf garlands are hung, floral Autumnal wreaths are visible on front doors and once again colour is much desired. Autumn is here upon us!
Plants with colour such as orange Chinese Lantern Plants and Sunflower Stems flock into people’s homes, Lonicera Branches, Forsythia and Beech Leaf Sprays add colour to any floral display and maple leaf sprays and bushes in Autumn Amber and Reds and other Autumnal shades can be added to the mix.
As the leaves fall off the trees, flowers and colour disappear outside, Harvest is here and people desire items for Arts and Crafts such as pumpkins, acorns, acorn and conker picks and autumn mixture crafts to enhance the dull days of Autumn in their creative displays.
Here at Shelf Edge, we have an array of colourful Autumnal plants and craft items to make Autumn come alive for your display…and we want to hear from you with photos of your colourful creations that we can add to our blog.
