Hello Dear Readers!
I cannot tell you how much I have been
looking forward to the Fall season this year and
the Autumnal Equinox ~ the first day of Fall is tomorrow!
So let’s celebrate today with our Monday Morning Blooms!
Yes, we (Lidy, Mary and Pam and I) are back to bring you
some fabulous Fall flower inspiration.
The links to the amazing posts are at the
end of this post under their beautiful images.
So let’s welcome Fall today with my
Blue and White with Copper Tablescape
I actually chose the color scheme of my
tablescape after I purchased my flowers.
Loving the blue of the hydrangeas and the
mix of pale and deep shades of orange,
Copper came to mind along with blue and white.
Here are the flowers that I chose:
Flowers tucked in and on my stack of
vintage benches (in my laundry room hallway) are:
Gerbera Daisy (pale peach)
Hydrangea (Blue and White)
Pepper Berries (Peach)
and White Boo Pumpkins
I thought how nice those flowers would be
in a copper container. However, I did not
have a large enough copper vase for all the
flowers I wanted to use. I shopped the kitchen,
hmmm, I have great cooper cookware … why not?!
So I grabbed one of my Mauviel dutch ovens,
filled it with floral foam and started creating.
I love mixing blues with copper so I went to
my hutch in the breakfast room and gathered
my favorite blue and white dishes (vintage Noritake)
that I obtained from my friend Martha.
Glassware is Fosteria American.
The perfect compliment to my china
were the blue and white placements
with monogrammed napkins that I won 🙂 in an IG giveaway
from the fabulous Amy of The Collected Nest.
(Her link above will get you to her Instagram account
where the link to her beautiful shop will be located.)
The berry bowl was a great piece
to prop up the napkin and a white boo pumpkin.
I cannot wait til this virus settles down
so that I can start entertaining again.
However, today I shall pretend that the
table is filled with guests.
When creating a larger size arrangement,
I always seem to start with the larger flowers
first; therefore, all of the hydrangeas were
set in place at the beginning. I then placed
the gerbera daisies in a symmetrical fashion.
Alstroemeria and mums were then used as fillers
and the stock, pepper berries, and orange thistle were the last
flowers to be placed in the arrangement.
I placed a few pumpkins around the base
of the arrangement using floral skewers.
I love that the skewers are green and
they blend well within the flowers.
I wanted to keep the center of the table simple
so I just added a several velvet pumpkins on each
side of the floral centerpiece.
Note to self: photograph your
copper centerpieces the same day . . .
as the condensation may cause the copper to tarnish
I love copper. There is a lot of copper
on the exterior of our house…..the roofs on two cupolas,
the flashings, the porch light, and the roof on my birdhouse.
I love using it indoors too!
The dining room is cheerfully dressed for Fall.
Hope you enjoyed my very first Fall Tablescape
in our new dining room. I plan to do another one soon.
Now it is time to visit my beautiful flower adoring friends.
You will certainly want to Fall into Fall right away!

These past few days, Fall has definitely been in the air
as the temps these past few mornings have been in the 50’s and 60’s 🙂
Hope you are experiencing some glorious days too!
