Create a fun autumn afternoon for children filled with ghoulish garden games and spook-alicious treats.
Group heirloom pumpkins, plants wrapped in burlap and fun metal pieces for a warm welcome. Spread spider webs in the background
for a haunted entryway.
Get the Look
Keep it simple for children. Use a 17" terra cotta pot, Purple Pixie lorapetalum for the hair and sedum for the face. Plant the loropetalum towards the back and sedum in the front. Place a barbecue skewer in the center and add a witch’s hat. After Halloween, parents can plant both sedum and pixie loropetalum in their landscape.
Help young children tuck plants in place. This container garden is perfect for a sunny porch.
Accent your branches in floral arrangements with mini tera cotta jack-o-lanterns filled with clipped pixie or diamond loropetalum.
Freeze rubber or latex gloves filled with water to decorate a bucket filled with drinks. You could also place them in pots as a fun way to water your ghoulish garden witch.
Combine a container garden filled with Purple Pixie or Purple Diamond loropetalum, curly willow branches and heirloom pumpkins to anchor your tablescape. Elevate on top of large logs. After the party, these are perfect next to your front door.
