Friday Flowers-Window Dressing

No matter the size of your home, window boxes always fit.

Above are my window boxes from the Spring, but I found a number of inspiring "window dressings" out there...from Parisian apartments, brownstones in Brooklyn to homes on a hill.
I also love that they are not a long-term commitment....I'll soon be adding pumpkins, gourds and berry branches to give mine a quick change for Fall.

Do you dress your windows?

YES, I do dress my windows! When we moved in I ordered some window boxes right away. I'm the only one in my neighborhood who has them. Thanks for validating my choice with these awesome examples!! XO, Kel

Thanks for the inspiration. I didn't realize that hydrangeas could thrive in a window box. So noted for the future.

I am love with all these images! We have tall windows along the front of our house where they pratically go from ceiling to floor...but in the back of the house...that would be divine!

Ever since I saw your yard/home on ER's blog last year I have been obcessed!!! I have tried to mimic your boxes, my Hydrengas just die...this Fall though, I am going to plant loads of pink tulips in all my front beds, in front of my Boxwoods. I also, do all the "Fall" stuff in the boxes too...at least I cant kill that stuff!

How pretty (and pink!) I grew up with window boxes in Belgium and Paris - such a great way to decorate the facade of a home. Have a great weekend!

Beautiful! Window boxes are so much fun, and I love being inside too and looking out to see the "window box view". Your tip on changing them up with the season is fabulous.

Have a great weekend!

All so lovely. We have beautiful window boxes this year {compliments to mother nature} ~ it's such a wonderful welcome home as we approach the drive.

I was just looking at mine this afternoon trying to decide on their autumn theme.

Have a great weekend ~

I absolutely love flower boxes. As a matter of fact, adding one to the upstairs window is on my lists to ask about when I call my handy man for some other repairs in the next few weeks!

I needed a jolt of color, so I enjoyed your window box post. I'm sending you a picture of mine this summer. It was my favorite, and I miss it!
