One of the best ways to enhance the appearance of your Elk Grove Village home is by changing your outdoor décor seasonally. Creating an autumn-themed window box is a great way to usher in fall, and will easily complement whatever siding options your home has.
Add Seasonal Color
There are plenty of flowers that are perfectly suited to the cooler temperatures autumn brings. Mums are a tried-and-true favorite, but you can also include flowering kale, snapdragons and pansies, as well. In fact, you may want to mix and match different flowers in order to add as much color as possible, particularly if your siding options are light-toned or neutral.
Include Dried Flowers
Your colorful flowers can make the perfect centerpiece for a few dried flowers such as goldenrod, larkspur or black-eyed Susan. Doing so will allow you to hold onto a bit of summer as long as possible, and is the perfect choice for early fall when the days are still fairly long.
Of course, nothing says autumn quite like pumpkins, gourds, and Indian corn do. As such, you may want to include a few of these seasonal goodies in your window box as well, particularly if your Elk Grove Village home contains rustic siding options. Slip in a few colored leaves and a pine cone or two, and you have the perfect window box to greet your Thanksgiving guests with.
Add some Greenery
An excellent way to show off fall’s splendid color palette is by adding a backdrop of greenery. Try adding a few ferns or ornamental cabbages to your window box, and then sprinkling in orange pumpkins or red mums. If you’re worried an early frost will harm your green specimens, consider using artificial plants or even strands of ivy to create the perfect accents.
