Today we will explore some glorious fall planters great for Thanksgiving and fall decorations, including many inspiring fall planter ideas and container garden inspirations with Mums, pumpkins, kale, and other ornamental plants, best fall flowers for pots, other decorative elements like straw or seed pods, and more!
Group 1: Using Ornamental Kale to Create beautiful Fall Planters
Purple fountain grass and bright colored peppers also look amazing here with kale in fall planters.
This planter above with conifers makes an easy transition from fall to winter and Christmas decorations by simply replacing the kale with red berry branches!
Group 2: Fall Planter Ideas with Mums and Pumpkins
Mums and Violas are both great fall flowers for pots because they bloom beautifully in cool weather.
We don’t even have t plant a fall planter! The above autumn container decoration is made with a rustic galvanized tub filled with colorful berry branches, straw, pumpkins, and dried corn. Such a beautiful celebration of fall harvest! ( Source lost, please let me know if you find the original source!)
Another favorite: Lucy at Craftberry Bush created such beautiful fall decorations with planters and pumpkins on her front porch!
Group 3: Yellow Daisies in Fall Planters
Daisies, Sunflowers, Black-eyed Susan, and Marigolds are all great fall flowers for pots. Their orange and yellow colors are lovely for fall decorations and container gardens. ( Sources for both above and below images are lost, please let me know if you find the original source, thank you!)
Mix these flowers with tall grasses, blue and purple kale, and other fall decorations accents like berries, cat tails, or pumpkins to create beautiful fall container gardens.
