Mum's the Word

And the word is "Welcome!"

Ladies at the Henderson Church of Christ sent me home Saturday with this beautiful fall arrangement. Positioned outside our kitchen door, these mums have given our family a warm welcome home each day since.

Make an arrangement like this one by clustering several potted mums into a larger terracotta pot. Fill in the arrangement with seasonal grasses, camouflage the plastic pots with moss, and tie a ribbon around the terracotta pot.

When it comes to saying "Welcome, Fall," just remember, mum's the word!
