Plum Plums

While models are working the runway this week wearing all things spring and summer, the weather is noticeably cooler and we’re getting ready for fall.  We love this season of dahlias, mums, pumpkins and gourds – all those oranges, rusts and golds add a vibrant pop of color in the garden and in the home.  But for those of you who want a more subtle, glamorous touch, plum is the way to go!

So does plum get a thumb up or down this fall?

    I’m with everyone – plum is a great color – and goes with so much! I remember being in 7th grade shopping for school and plum was the color that year – I had plum EVERYTHING and loved it.

    Totally up. I think plum (not it’s louder cousin, purple) is my all-time favorite color. Just gorgeous! That jar is really eye-catching.
