FEATURES
What sorts of materials are most popular for
fall decorations?
While pumpkins and gourds are the most widely used materials, you do not need to be limited to them. Fall plants such
as mums, fall pansies, grasses such as annual purple fountain
grass, and ornamental kale and cabbage can be used creatively
for stunning displays.
Straw bales can be covered with brightly colored cloths and
used as seats, tables or shelves on which to exhibit decorative
objects.
Colorful leaves, polished apples, Indian corn, wheat and
corn shocks can be combined for notable arrangements, particularly when partnered with colorful ribbons, swatches of
burlap or bows.

What about lighting for outdoor areas?
More and more people are incorporating lighting into fall
displays. LED lights last longer and use less energy, and are
recommended if you're going to be stringing them into dried
grapevines, wheat or corn shocks.

"The AccuVent baffles I
selected definitely made
the job easier. They don't
rot, and once stapled in
place, aren't going to
move."
- Nick R., Aurora, ON

"The newer LED lights stay very cool to the touch and can
be safely mixed with your dried materials," Salks said.
She advised that, for a
softer look, purchase LED
lights labeled "warm white,"
which will help you avoid the
glaring bluish light that some
"white" lights produce. Silicon-tipped bulbs, which produce a soft light and warm
glow that are reminiscent of
candlelight, can set a nice,
soft tone. Vicki Jean's Creations, a line of hand-dipped,
soft tipped candle glow light
bulbs, are especially nice.
Orange and amber lights
also are popular for fall decorating, as well as lights designed to look like Candy Corn.
Regardless of what type of lights you use, be sure they come
with a UL listing, which assures a safe, quality product.
