For a different bulb this fall, try planting alliums By SARAH WOLFE The Associated Press

Beautiful and sturdy with a flair for the dramatic, alliums are a graceful way to add color and architectural dimension to your garden. With large globes of tiny white, purple, yellow or blue flowers that rise from bulbs on slender green stems as high as 4 feet tall, they look like giant, fluffy lollipops – something Willy Wonka would have planted in the Chocolate Factory garden. Most bloom in late spring or early summer, so they fill the gap between spring bulbs and summer perennials. They’re also easy to grow, and resistant to deer and many other pests. “For people who are considering planting them, my advice is, don’t think twice. Do it,” says

Adult halloween parties – no pumpkins allowed By MELISSA RAyWORTH The Associated Press

Halloween, the holiday built around the twin pleasures of playing dress-up and eating too much candy, is obviously a hit with children. But send invitations to your grown-up friends and you’ll probably find they haven’t outgrown the urge to don creepy costumes and celebrate in spooky, theatrical style. Want to host a party that merges Halloween fun with grown-up sophistication? Turning your home into a haunted mansion is surprisingly easy, says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, founder of Flynnside Out Productions. Just ditch the cheerful orange pumpkins and smiling ghosts for darker, more creative décor. “Stay away from anything cute,” Flynn says, “and instead opt for creepy-chic.” Here Flynn and two other design experts – Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs and the latest “HGTV Star” winner, Tiffany Brooks – offer decorating advice for a memorable, stylish and affordable Halloween party.


Cheesecloth evokes ancient mummies, while burlap brings to mind scarecrows. Both fabrics are inexpensive and lightweight, but sturdy – perfect for Halloween party tablecloths. These solid-color pieces also have a more adult feel than the whimsical prints on Halloween tablecloths or napkins designed for kids. Call likes using large sheets of brown craft paper on buffet tables or as a runner down the center of a Halloween dining table. Cluster small gourds along the runner, he says, then add a few large pillar candles. Easily and inexpensively, “you’ve knocked out a table that’s great for any fall holiday,” Call says. And cleanup is simple: “After a party, throw the paper out.”

DARK AND DANGEROUS COLORS All three designers suggest


AP PhoTos

Dining chairs that give the illusion of “straitjacket chairs,” will make guests feel like they will be the feast. Make sure to turn buckles to the outside.

Branches, spray-painted black and secured in vases with gravel, floral foam and a layer of moss, make a stunning and inexpensive Halloween centerpiece created by designer, Brian Patrick Flynn for HGTV.

using a muted palette of grays, browns and black. Brooks suggests spray-painting pumpkins glossy gray to create a glamorous centerpiece. Use orange only as an accent, Flynn says, perhaps adding a few orange napkins to an otherwise black and gray table setting. You can also create a dramatic scene by spray-painting empty wine bottles in a matte black, he says, then replacing the labels with your own creations: Using scrapbooking labels or cardstock and a Sharpie, come up with creepy names for the liquids supposedly in the bottles.


Take down any cheerful artwork and replace it with old portraits from thrift shops or flea markets. Halloween stores sell deliberately creepy portraits made for this purpose, but it’s more fun to

hunt down real paintings, says Flynn. Brooks agrees that this easy decorating move can transform the feel of a room, especially if the room will be lit only by candles. (She plans to shut off her electricity entirely during a Halloween party this year, filling each room with just enough candles to provide dim, flickering light.) Once you’ve hung your new gallery of portraits, Flynn suggests taping tiny pieces of black construction paper over the eyeballs in the pictures for a haunted mansion feel.


Flynn also recommends trolling thrift shops and flea markets for items that evoke dusty, dated Victorian style, or midcentury pieces that seem lifted from a ‘60s Hitchcock movie. Fill old apothecary jars and other glass containers with water tinted with yellow and green food coloring to suggest formaldehyde.

Soak the labels off empty bottles and spray-paint them black. Used scrapbook labels to add scary names (“Eye of Newt,” “Deadly Nightshade”), and cluster them together on a sideboard.

Then drop anything – tiny plastic animals, seed pods, bits of moss – into the colorful liquid. Or create terrariums by filling glass vases with twigs, moss, and tiny plastic bugs and snakes.

Seek out second-hand treasures: real or fake taxidermy, stone bust bookends, antique dolls and toys, and vintage books and laboratory or surgical equipment.

Prairie gardens work in many diverse landscapes By DEAN FOSDICK The Associated Press


You don’t need to live on the prairie to have a prairie garden. Natural landscapes featuring mainly native plants are being sown in yards across North America as environmentally friendly alternatives to turf grass. These durable plant combinations include flowers, shrubs and trees. They require little attention, add year-round color and interest and provide wildlife-friendly habitat. “Many species found in prairies are native to other plant communities found outside the Midwest, such as woodland openings, meadows and barrens, as well as mountain and desert habitats,� says Lynn Steiner of Stillwater, Minn., author of “Prairie Style Gardens� (Timber Press. 2010). “And even if these plants aren’t native to your area, they are still often better choices than exotic plants that come from outside North America.� City and suburban gardens often aren’t large enough to support meadows, but many prairie plants adapt well to smaller spaces, she said. “They tolerate less fertile soils, reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers. They thrive on less water, reducing water use. And they don’t require heavy fossil-fuel input from mowing and trimming,� Steiner said in an email. Margaret Brittingham, an extension wildlife specialist with Penn State University, said it takes some effort to get prairie plants established “but once done, they’re easy to handle.� “They’re great for attracting birds and butterflies,� she said. “You can use them for cut flowers, too.� To keep neighbors happy and win official approval from municipalities, make the conversion from lawn to meadow look tended and not unkempt, Brittingham said. Some design suggestions: O Create borders using hedges, mowed edges, low fences

or walkways. They act as buffers, keep plants from obstructing sight lines and frame an otherwise natural landscape, Brittingham said. O Start small. Save money by converting from turf to meadow in manageable yet visible pieces. First, eliminate any trouble spots on the lawn, and then expand gradually, mimicking nature’s processes of gradual succession. O Find the right plants for the right sites. Don’t plant sun-loving prairie flowers under shade trees, or plants that like their feet dry in low spots that collect run-off. O Go native. Non-native species generally have less wildlife value, Brittingham said, and are often invasive, eliminating many native species. Check the noxious weed control lists issued for your area and ensure that none are included among the seeds you sow or in the containers you plant. O Help spread the word. Draw a map of your natural landscape and make it available through brochures placed around your yard. “You might even include a listing of the plants you used and where you got them,� Brittingham said. O Humanize the project. Add yard art or something personal and whimsical, Steiner said. “For accent and embellishment, rusted iron sculptural pieces blend nicely with the casual look of a prairie landscape. Sundials are nice additions to gardens featuring these sun-loving plants. Birdbaths made of ceramic or stone are practical as well as beautiful.� By illustrating that your landscape is cared for and designed intentionally, you’ll show that you haven’t just allowed “weeds� to take over, Steiner said.
