A "berry" simple fall decoration

Gather some berries from your back yard and put them in a hanging wicker basket. I picked these nandina berries which capture all the beautiful colors of fall ~ red, orange, gold, brown and green.


Hang this simple but lovely fall basket on your door to say "Welcome".


Berry simple!

I knew I should have planted that Nandina bush 2 years ago. I will have to settle for rosehips!

Hey Donna,

I just realized it was a year ago this week that I first started reading your blog. I've enjoyed checking in on you and the boys every day since.

Hi Donna!
How pretty...wish I had some of those berries but I'm sure I can come up with something out here in the country. I hope your weather has been good so far this September. Have a great weekend!

Berry simple and berry pretty. I love the berries on the nandina bushes. Thanks for the good idea.

Your basket looks great and I love your use of Nandina berries. I have several old bushes that produce huge quantities of berries. I usually wait till Christmas to pick them but yours look so pretty for Fall. I may just copy your idea. :)
I'm going to look for a flat back door basket like yours. Mine isn't flat and wobbles a bit when the door opens and closes.
Thanks for a great idea.

Happy September, Donna! I love your berries; alas NOTHING in my yard is big enough to have clusters of berries yet, so I'm green, absolutely green with envy over yours'! :D I've been away (imagine that---I NEVER leave home!!--) for 10 days visiting with a sister and then came home yucky sick. Still trying to kick this URI crud. I've missed 'visiting' with you and the boys. :)
