Incredible Ways to Decorate with Mums
Every fall, front porches all over the neighborhood stack up with mums — our favorite sun-loving fall flower. Mums come in a multitude of colors, from fall classic colors like orange, red, and yellow to unexpected white, pink, and purple. Buy mums in a variety of colors and mix them together for fun arrangements. When purchasing mums, it’s a good idea to go with a plant with unopened buds so you can see the flower bloom and have it for longer. And if you take good enough care of your mums, when their peak season is over, you can replant them in your yard for next season. If you’re new to gardening, check out our beginner’s guide to mums for easy tips for taking care of your mums. Here are some incredible fall mum decorations, from indoor centerpiece to large outdoor arrangements.
Use Unconventional Containers
Anything, like this cool old whiskey barrel, can be a container garden if you just believe (and don't make these mistakes).
Put Them In The Window
Bring your home into the fall season with a window arrangement that can be enjoyed by anyone passing by.
Dress Them Up
Rustic fall mums get a classy makeover in a silver urn or pitcher.
Set The Table
Make mini "mumkin" arrangements for your fall dinner party or Thanksgiving dinner. Stick place cards in for extra personalization or give the mumkins out as a favor.
Hang 'Em Up
A big hanging basket bursting with colorful mums is the easiest way to brighten up your porch this fall.
Keep It Simple
Bunch together a handfull of button mums in any color for a cute and quick no-fuss arrangement.

Make a Wreath

Vary Heights and Sizes

Fall-flower-covered letters would be adorable for an autumn baby shower, birthday party or bridal luncheon. Although these flowers are artificial for a longer lasting result, you can always go natural, too. Get the how-to at BabyShower.com.
Change Up Fall Colors
Mums come in so many beautiful colors, including pink and purple hues, so don’t limit your fall decorations to orange, yellow and red.
