Hello Dear Readers!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
We have had glorious weather and more to come.
A great way to begin a Monday with a cool, light
breeze and sunshine on your face.
Speaking of sunshine, today is Monday Morning Blooms Day!
Lidy, Mary, Pam and I are so happy to bring you some
beautiful Fall floral inspiration.
The links to their posts are below their
most beautiful images.
Today I present to you, a
Sunroom Fall Flower Arrangement.
When I chose the Beatrice Wedgwood small
brown transferware tureen to use as the
container of the flower arrangement, I thought it
would look great in the sunroom.
Finding a container to place in the tureen to hold
the floral foam was a challenge, so I placed
two plastic storage bags (doubling them for
extra strength) and lined the tureen.
Today, the flowers chosen are:
Bright Orange Gerbera Daisies
(Been using a lot of these lately!)
Pretty Yellow Calla Lilies
White Stock Roses
Magnolia leaves and Seeded Eucalyptus for filler.
Here we are half way done.
Magnolia trees were on my “Landscape Wish List”.
So happy to have 3 beautiful Little Gem Magnolias
in the yard. I told my hubby not to trim them
until I am ready to decorate for Christmas!
The coffee table in the sunroom is small,
so I chose to use use my Lenox compotes
to give the velvet pumpkins a “lift” off the table,
so that I can tuck other pretties underneath them.
Smaller sized velvet pumpkins
fill another Lenox compote.
I’ve had those velvet pumpkins
for years (by Plush Pumpkins)
and enjoy using them in my Fall decor each year.
You will find more of these pumpkins
throughout the house and I really
hate when the time comes to store them away.
The sunroom is decorated in traditional
Fall colors and like the pumpkins, I
hate having to store away my favorite
Fall pillow of the Pheasant.
Do you spy a pretty wooden box?
It belonged to my late mother-in-law.
It’s Italian like she was and love
displaying it in my home.
I placed a couple of Magnolia branches
on the table and decided to tuck some
into the arrangement too.
As I was placing the flower arrangement
on the table, I was thinking about
what I will do for Christmas;
however, I quickly decided to “live in the moment!
I am so enjoying watching the leaves change
at my new home. The maple trees are brilliant.
The mums are dotting the front yard with beautiful color.
I took this photo below with my iPhone
to place it on my Instagram Account
as we were leaving to go to the hospital
to have my port removed…yay it is out!

So happy that you stopped by
so see my Sunroom Fall Flower Arrangement.
It’s been fun decorating the sunroom
for Fall for the first time at Hickory Cottage.
And now, it is time to visit my
ever so wonderful flower loving friends!!!

I want to thank all my fabulous Monday Morning Blooms friends
for placing smiles on my face last year, when I
wasn’t experiencing the Fall season like I usually do.
I missed so many Blooms Days…
And the many, many others…blogging friends, friends, and family
for reaching out with beautiful well wishes and so much joy.
I cannot believe it has been a year already….and must say with
the help of everyone … the massive amount of Prayer Warriors …
I believed I could and I freaking did! 🙂
Have a most beautiful day everyone!
