Autumn Flowers

 

Welcome to Monday Morning Blooms!

 

 

Today I’m joining with my dear friends Shirley, Mary and Pam to share with you how we’re decorating with flowers and pumpkins this fall. Be sure to visit my friends at the end of this post.

 

Autumn flowers and pumpkins are a combination made in fall heaven. They both evoke all the feelings of warmth, coziness, and home, don’t they?  They make such a beautiful statement, especially together! I’m adding tones of burgundy wine, caramel butterscotch, green, brown and gold for a lively colorful fall arrangement. I’ll show you how easy it is to create a fabulous floral centerpiece for fall.

I added an antique dough bowl to the center of the table filled with real and velvet pumpkins.  The center of the bowl is lined with a colorful leaf garland, which surrounds the beautiful green pumpkin on one side. A few velvet pumpkins from Plush Pumpkin, and some mini pumpkins and pomegranates from the farm stand nearby make for a lush arrangement.

For this very fall table, I left our wooden “farm” table uncovered, and didn’t even use placemats or anything!  I love the wood, especially at this time of year. The deeper autumn hues in the flowers really seem to look even better agains the brown wood too.

I got the cute small cutting boards from one of my girls for Christmas {she knows me, I love entertaining!} and put one at each place setting with a vintage French olive bowl. These small bowls are perfect for serving a muffin, chips, a small serving of slaw, or even toppings for the main entree.

 

My antique plates are called Quail, they were made by Furnivals in the early 1900’s. I don’t have a whole set, just 6 dinner plates, 8 bowls, and 8 dessert plates. I love these, and use them as often as possible for the autumn season.

The linen napkins with wheat embroidery are always my favorite. I also have them in white, both are beautiful and perfect for fall and Thanksgiving.  The vintage French Ercuis silver is a stylish match for this setting, the fork is placed face down like all my French friends do it. It’s why French flatware always has some kind of design on the back of the fork, and almost always the hallmarks are on the front of the fork.

 

Each guest will receive one of our very favorite Cheeseball Entertaining Sets, which is 3 mixes, and antique silver spreader packaged up for us with ribbon and a faux fall leaf.

Now for the floral arrangement!

 

antique French pottery with flowers

 

I selected one of my favorite antique French confit jars from the Savoie region of France. The way this particular pot was glazed gives it so much personality! It is completely glazed on the inside, so can hold water perfectly for large arrangements. {Because most of us won’t be making a ton of duck confit to fit this pot anytime soon!}

Taping off the top of the jar with a grid of our clear florist tape to give the flowers and the filler greens some help standing up is always so helpful. Cut your flowers at an angle, after removing each and every single leaf from the mums and pompom daisies. I know. But for some reason when you do this, they last and last and last. long.

 

The flowers in this arrangement:

  • Chrysanthemums in burgundy wine
  • Daisy Pompoms in butterscotch
  • Leucadendron {green & wine colored filler}
  • Seeded Eucalyptus
  • Panicum Grass
  • A sage green filler that try as I might I can’t find the name of

If you taped off a grid, it is easy to begin inserting some of the eucalyptus and the other filler greens first, reserving a few for the center of your arrangement. Turn your container around once in awhile and fill in the empty spots.  Then add the mums and the pompom daisies. They grow in clusters, so they give you a whole lot of bang for your buck {s.} Keep turning the container around, and fill in empty spots with the remaining filler.

Instead of inserting wood skewers into white ghost pumpkins, you can gently nestle some faux pumpkins into the flowers. They weigh nothing, and will just lay in their floral nest for as long as you want them to.
