Fall flowers inside the home…

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?

Your mantel is lovely! Love your pops of orange on the white. My fall decorating was pretty limited this year - no fresh flowers - but you are making me want to run out and get some!

So many pretty fall touches around your lovely home! I love the jam-packed container in the first photo. I love all the different colors and textures.

beautiful flowers around your home. The valance in your kitchen is way cute - saw a glimpse of that in the background of one of your photos. Thanks for stopping by my blog today - hanging in there with the storm. Kids are out of school tomorrow, too. :/
