Hello Dear Readers!
Happy Monday and a very Happy Monday Morning Blooms!
May I also say, Happy Labor Day!
I hope you all have enjoyed your holiday weekend.
We, (Lidy, Mary, Pam and I) are back to bring you
some lovely flower inspiration for you to enjoy.
Their links are below their most beautiful images
at the end of this post.
Today, since we are now into September and with
Fall fast approaching, I bring you,
Fall Bouquets in the Sunroom.
My inspiration for today’s bouquets was
the Suzani like pillow on my “bee chair.”
I actually took a pic of it so I could
recall the exact colors to mimic the pillow.
I had also taken my Leopard pillows from the
pillow cover abyss and added them to the sofa,
along with one of my fav pillows, “the Pheasant”.
With the exception of the Leopard pillows,
all pillows are from Pottery Barn several years ago.
The Leopard pillows were custom made from fabric
on super clearance.
When searching for the perfect vase, I found
my pair of Tortoise vases (also from Pottery Barn)
which coordinate so well with the Leopard pillows.
The flowers I used today (all from Trader Joe’s) are:
Orange Gerbera Daisies
Eryngo (the blue thistle type flower)
Yellow Roses with deep pink edging on the outer petals.
Feathers were added for that extra Fall touch
I selected the lidded brown transferware container
that I had used in my previous Monday Morning Blooms
to be a part of the the Fall vignette on the coffee table.
I missed celebrating last year’s Fall season the way I have
done it in the past and I am so looking forward to planting mums
and setting out lots of pumpkins this year.
So how did I create today’s simple vase arrangement?
I started out with the blue hydrangea as I knew it would
be one of the tallest and fullest of the flowers and then tucked in
the roses around it, then alternated with the other flowers.
I made certain that I set aside a few Gerbera Daisies
to place at the base of the vase to conceal any stems.
The feathers were adorned last, like jewelry.
With enough flowers left over and having a coordinating vase,
I made a mini arrangement to place on the vintage
Venetian stacking tables.
With possibly a few more added Fall touches,
the sunroom will be ready to welcome in the Fall season.
I will soon be rescuing the velvet pumpkins and more,
from the dreaded storage abyss.
Hope you enjoyed my “pre-Fall” sunroom today.
When looking for inspiration to create a simple vase of flowers. . .
wondering what flowers/colors to choose. . .
look to things in your room for inspiration or possibly
something that may be in your “storage abyss.”
And….speaking of inspiration, it is time to visit my
ever so passionate about all things flowers, friends.
