Today I put out some fresh flowers around the house and planted this container, and even though these blooms will look much prettier in a week or so, I thought I’d share them with you.
Don’t you just love the colors of autumn?
I like fiddling around with colors and textures of fresh flowers. These are inexpensive Mums and I added some baby pumpkins and a few succulents…
Right now I’m really smitten with the color orange.
I especially love it paired with white, so I added these pumpkins filled with marigolds, lilies and berries to my mantel. Nothing fancy, but I think there’s drama in monochromatic arrangements, don’t you?
This was the first year I didn’t go crazy with Halloween decorating inside my house and it was nice, it let me enjoy all the autumn decor .
I especially like mixing rustic and ornate finishes like these. I love my old clay pots on this silver tray.
And the blue-green color of these succulents looks interesting next to the bold orange.
I’m not sure why carnations get such a bad rap, not only are they a reliable and inexpensive filler flower, but they look great in mass. Here’s a handful inside a vase with orange berries.
Are you in the mood to brighten your kitchen up?
You can make a simple fall arrangement with a wire basket, a few gourds and pumpkins, add some dried hydrangeas or leaves, a few berries … and voila, you’re done!
Have you been planting any flowers lately?
I’m linking up at these fun places:
