Hello Dear Readers!
Happy Monday and Happy Monday Morning Blooms!
I have been busy creating two tablescapes
to present to you this week. I decided to create a
Fall Flower Tablescape with Mackenzie-Childs
today, joining my flower adoring friends,
Lidy, Mary and Pam. As always, our goal is to
bring you floral inspiration and to place a smile on your face!
You will find my flower adoring friends’ links to their
beautiful posts at the end of this post.
As you can see, I am using my MacKenzie-Childs teapot
for today’s flower arrangement.
It seems as though is has been a tradition to create a flower arrangement
in this teapot at least once in the Fall.
This is where I do all of my flower arranging, along with laundry!
As you can see, I began with the roses and then placed
the gerbera daisies between them and filled in with the
spray roses and seeded eucalyptus.
There is a glass vessel inside the teapot to contain the flowers.
The flowers I chose for today’s arrangement are
all in the shade of orange.
and Seeded Eucalyptus for filler.
I chose to set a table for two on the breakfast table.
I selected a pumpkin design runner that I purchased
from HomeGoods years ago.
I gathered some “pumpkin” accessories
and pretty Fall napkins purchased from Pottery Barn
a few years ago.
Bakelite handled flatware seemed to
be perfect for this table for two.
Recently, I have been using more neutral tones in my seasonal decor
and my hubby was happy to see a bright orange
flower arrangement appear on the breakfast room table.
I placed the flower arrangement on a vintage bread board.
I felt the addition of another texture and also to “put my
arrangement on a pedestal” would be a good thing.
The lid to the teapot is so pretty, that I had to include it on the table.
It is perched next to the teapot on the bread board.
The breakfast room is adjacent to the sunroom,
so you will see some images of it in the background.
On the opposite side of the breakfast room is the little
sitting room where my pretty blue French armoire stands tall.
Our floor plan is very open as you can see.
In this image, you can see the kitchen in the background.
In our former home, we had counter stools around the island
and also around the kitchen counter.
The dining room was also next to the kitchen so
we felt no need for a breakfast room.
We had turned our previous breakfast room into a sunroom,
as many of you know.
It’s so nice to have a designated breakfast room again.
My hutch fit perfectly here.
Since I have a fireplace in the dining room
there was no room for the hutch so it worked out well.
We are enjoying the burst of Fall colors
in the breakfast room…hope you did too!
And…now it is time to visit my ever so talented Blooms Friends!

are experiencing here in N.C.
