It’s summer, and we’re having beautiful, warm summer days

 

 

 

 

 

here at FrenchGardenHouse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In our FrenchGardenHouse garden,

 

 

 

 

the beautiful peach Polka rose is sending out it’s last blooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a beautiful time of year to

 

 

 

 

WELCOME YOU TO MONDAY MORNING BLOOMS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve all put our favorite peach flowers together with

 

 

 

 

real summer peaches for some peachy inspiration!

 

 

 

Peach flowers are perfect for a lighter summer color palette at home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peach flowers come in such a beautiful range of shades,

 

 

 

from palest pink peach to deep peachy corals with apricot tones.

 

 

 

And who doesn’t love summer peaches?   Our farmer’s market has the best ones!

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a side note, I’m really excited that our bathroom remodels are almost {!} done

 

 

 

and things are slowly getting back to normal here at home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While out shopping for a petit armoire to hold our small television in the master bedroom

 

 

 

 

I spied a magnificent 18th century French Buffet duex Corps.

 

 

 

 

Way too grand and large for our bedroom.  big. as in really big.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I walked away {it was a Friday.} And bought a small armoire for the master.

 

 

 

By very early Sunday morning I couldn’t take it anymore and called the dealer

 

 

 

who opened his shop early for us so we could buy it!

 

 

 

 

And now it’s in the living room. Still  v e r y   big.

 

 

 

 

But a large scale piece makes a statement in every interior, right??

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know, I know. This post is supposed to be about flowers.

 

 

 

 

So let’s talk about this peach and apricot arrangement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using my clear floral tape, I made a big grid on the antique French wedding tureen.

 

 

 

The clippings from the bushes in the back garden went in first as a base to hold the flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then I inserted the apricot peach roses one by one.

 

 

 

 

And added the sweet light peach carnation sprays all around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I placed the tureen on a peachy pink Florentine tray on the living room table.

 

 

 

Peaches in the glass bowl, on a stack of Charles Faudree design books.

 

 

 

I love it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for joining me today for Monday Morning Blooms.

 

 

 

 

{And for humoring me about the new love I’ve found, the French Buffet Deux  Corps.}
