As I watched my garden turn from its brilliant wind swept autumn colors to its stillness of bare branches and decomposing leaves, I turned my attention to cutting and collecting hydrangea blooms from the one bush I have in my yard. I wanted to save them for a rainy day, so to speak, so that when they dried I could make a wreath. I first learned about this do-it-yourself project last month while reading Katy Ormes' blog Apartment Apothecary, where guest blogger Tamsyn of The Villa on Mount Pleasant demonstrated how to make it.
One thing led to another, and before I knew it, I had made plans to make a large hydrangea wreath to hang over an old wooden table on my front porch, together with another, smaller wreath for the door, and to fill the basket on the table with all manner of autumn goodness. A potted mum (shown in last photo), and my front porch is not only stylin' the season, but rockin' it!
Below are a few more detail photos of the door wreath, the basket on the table, and the chrysanthemum.
Thank you for viewing this Styling The Seasons post. If you would like to know more about Styling The Seasons, visit Katy Orme at Apartment Apothecary and Charlotte at Lotts & lots, and of course a Google search will bring up even more bloggers and Instagramers who also love to style the season. And look for my own version of a do-it-yourself for both the hydrangea wreath and the door wreath in the very near future!
