    Fall Décor Ideas from Quebec City
    October 12, 2012 in Inspiration | no comments

    Have you noticed recently that decorating for Fall has gradually shifted from well thought out plans to sticking out a few Styrofoam tombstones and some orange light strands in the front yard? Well, Canada has us beat by a mile when it comes to decorating for fall.  I just got back from a trip to Quebec City and Montreal and the decorations were so amazing, I couldn’t stop taking pictures.

    The outdoor decorations were so incredibly creative.  I’ve decided to share a few of my favorites with you that are ‘fall’ and some that are ‘Halloween’ focused.  They certainly inspired me to take holiday decorating up a notch and I hope they inspire you.

    Halloween Inspired:

    Most of these photos are from the Joan of Arc Garden in Quebec City.  The last few are from the town square, which had very interesting “Wine” themed decorations.  I don’t think I have the time or inspiration to go all out like in the winery theme, but the photos from the Joan of Arc garden are really quite simple items, such as blackboard cut outs, pumpkins and some fabric material.

    The Hangman (note the street lanterns which were wrapped in orange cloth and tied with a bow.  They looked like pumpkins in person).

    These displays were really amazing in person.  I was surprised so much time would be spent on ‘landscaping’ in an area covered with snow for such long periods of fall and winter.  That said, I am so glad they did because our whole group really enjoyed searching out and finding all the creative displays at various parks, offices and restaurants.  I hope this inspires you to take some initiative in your fall décor as well!
