From hay rides to festive fall flower boxes, nothing represents the harvest season like color. And what better place to showcase yellow, orange, green, and brown than in fall window boxes. To help you get your creative juices flowing, we are sharing 10 must-have window box ideas including vivid fall flowers for pots, fun-filled fall window decorations, fall container plants, and more. Check out these great illustrations of fall flower boxes with a cup of hot cider and let the artistry begin.
1. The Colors of Fall
Stacey Rufgan designed a lovely fall window box harvest that highlights our Annual Window Box Contest. Filled with festive orange and yellow peppers, vibrant multi-colored mums, green ornamental cabbage, mini pumpkins and gourds, the colors of Fall definitely rule.
2. The Leaf Effect
Keeping with fall’s color scheme, a great way to showcase the season is to fill a sleek fiberglass planter with dried leaves, pumpkins, gourds, artificial grasses, and cat tails. Check out this maintenance free arrangement–one of our favorite fall window box ideas.
3. The Hayrack
This natural looking hayrack style planter does double duty when it comes to flower box ideas. Fill with dried eucalyptus, faux apples and berries, and dried milkweed pods, before adding evergreens as transition to winter.
4. Grasses and Greens
When you only want a hint of color, fill your window box with the elegant look of grasses and vines. Rich green leaves, a splash of yellow or ruby red spotlights any of our PVC, fiberglass, or wrought iron fall window boxes.
5. Symmetry in Motion
We love the creative use of symmetry in any of our iron or metal window boxes. Fill a coco liner flower box with spiked plants for height and a hanging vine for length. Accent with tiny mums and gourds to keep everything in balance.
6. Fall Elegance
Begin with one of our modern fiberglass window boxes, fill it with a lush array of mini pumpkins and grasses, fall blooming asters, variegated ivy, and purple ornamental cabbage, and you’ve got yourself one voluptuous fall window box design.
7. Packing it in with Reclaimed Wood
One of the best design ideas that is both rustic and sophisticated is to start with a reclaimed wood window box, then pack it with your favorite fall flowers and greens.
8. The Art of the Add
Adding unexpected items in your fall window box can really liven things up. Place a piece of driftwood or two at the end of your plantings. Or, set a ceramic gnome in the middle of your mums. Another fun idea is to fill your window box with nothing but pumpkins and gourds, adding a small sprig of rosemary here and there for fun.
9. Nothing but Blossoms
If you’re looking for something diminutive for your fall window box idea, fill one of our Santiago Window Boxes and bronze metal liner combo with delicate mini mums. Let’s planter and blossoms have equal billing.
10. Galvanized Rosemary and Thyme
If you live in a warm or temperate climate, add one of our zinc railing planters and fill with your favorite herbs. “Sprinkle liberally” with decorative cattails to create a fall effect.
