On the corner of Main Street, Fish Creek, a composed display of everything-autumn delights visitors to Door County. The arrangement is compliments of the up-scale On Deck Clothing Company. Although it looks random and natural, it is actually carefully composed. The trick is to use a variety of seasonal materials–in abundance and at different levels. Baskets, large pots and galvanized tubs on boxes raise pumpkins and gourds in multiple colors to new heights, adding great interest. Tall sheafs of corn stalks also give height and interest to the display.
A white garden pillar and quirky scarecrow echo the height of the stalks. Potted grasses as well as potted mums take this display into the “design” realm by adding unexpected and unusual elements. A touch not easy to see in the picture is that each pumpkin wears the scripted words “On Deck” in black. The display is, after all, an invitation to go inside the welcoming store–just next-door.
