With the fall weather fast approaching, you may be looking for new ways that you can change up your curb appeal or spruce up your décor within your home. There are so many ways to celebrate the start of the fall season and so many different options in terms of décor that you can move forward with, inside and outside of the home. One of the most popular ways to decorate the house is with everyone’s favorite fall flower – mums! If you are not sure how you can incorporate mums into the rooms within your home, or outside, we have got some tips for you! 

Mums are perfect for the fall – it is the time that they open their flowers, temperatures drop down and summer comes to an end. It is good to have some late bloomers like mums in your garden so that you can enjoy them for longer. If you are looking to have mums outside, you can use beds or containers and fill them with mums of all different shapes and sizes. Some of the most popular color mums that people will incorporate into their décor or garden for fall include red, yellow, purple, pink or white. 

Mums in the garden grow best in cooler weather, which is why they are a widely chosen flower for the fall season. If you are looking to plant some, pick out plants that have buds beginning to open – they will flower for weeks and weeks and you can enjoy throughout the whole duration of the fall. It is important, however, to know your color scheme goals for your garden. Most gardeners will choose one or two colors of mums to incorporate, so the garden does not look to overwhelming. Reds and oranges can look nice on a porch surrounded by pumpkins, gourds and hay! When planting, be sure to plant in an area where the mums will get at least six hours of sunlight a day, and do not forget to water them. 

Once you are ready to bring some mums inside to enjoy within the rooms of your home, there are many different spots you can place them – in the kitchen as a center piece, in your living room or even within your bathrooms for a nice extra touch of color. You can enjoy them as house plants until the flowers are done.
