Fall Flower Tablescape with MacKenzie-Childs

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.

Gerbera Daisies


Spray Roses

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!

The links to their posts are below their most beautiful images!

being able to enjoy some great Fall weather like we

are experiencing here in N.C.

  1. Gorgeous Shirley! Your Courtly Check tea kettle makes the perfect vessel for your pretty orange bouquet! I love the addition and warmth of the wood board. Your Bakelite flatware, embroidered runner and your sweet mini tureens are wonderful fall additions too. I know you must be lovin’ your open floor plan and all that wonderful light. So happy to be joining you for some flower therapy today, it’s the highlight of my week. Happy October ♥

    Beautiful arrangement of Fall colors in the McKenzie teapot. I’m with hubby…love the colors. Love seeing more of your open floor plan. Armoire is stunning! Have a Blessed week.

  3. Shirley, the beautiful combination of orange flowers looks so lovely in the Courtly Check tea kettle perched upon the vintage breadboard. Orange is a perfect autumn color and it also pleased your sweet hubby to see the colorful arrangement. I think I also spy a stack of Courtly Check plates! I just love seeing your other spaces from the breakfast room….the sitting room with the amazing armoire, the light-filled sunroom, and a dream kitchen…all so beautifully appointed. The pumpkin runner was an excellent choice to finish off the breakfast room table for two! It is always a pleasure to share Monday Morning Blooms with you, wishing you a delightful autumn day!

  4. Love the orange combination with your Courtly check tea pot. So pretty. Have a great start to the new week. xoxo
