Vignettes of Fall

What's It Wednesday #138
Living in South Florida where real fall colors are at a premium, I wanted to share this gorgeous arrangement my darling daughter and little grandson sent me, just because. I love the punch of robust color added to the softness of the peach roses and white hydrangeas. I actually spilled some of the water because I didn't think they were real!

Even though we stay green pretty much all year in Miami, we do love decorating for the seasons. This is a little vignette I put together for the entry table. Of course, I included some wheat and an acorn for good luck!

This little side table got the bright reds and oranges that are balanced by some classic blue and white. I think it's a great compliment to any décor.

Outside you'd be surprised what your local dollar store can yield. With a little bit of color blending my ten dollar investment reaped an arrangement fit to grace any home. I found the cornucopia at Goodwill for $2.00, yea!

This lovely arrangement was just the inspiration I needed to put me in the mood for Fall. Thank you my two sweeties!
Hugs,
Patti

How thoughtful and sweet! A very pretty fall bouquet, indeed. You've created some lovely vignettes, Patti, and I'm sure they make you feel fresh and vibrant every time you pass by them, no matter how hot it may be in your neck of the woods.

Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

What fall decor inspiration you've got goin' on!! I love every splash of fall color you've used Patti. The colors are starting to pop out here and there in Ohio and I'm loving it. I went on a Cabin Scrapbook Weekend with my girlfriends this past weekend in a place called Blue Ridge Rock Region and had the most wonderful time. The floral arrangement you received is gorgeous!! Such sweeties you have!

Blessings, Edie Marie

Cathy Carroll said...

Fall is my favorite time of year and I found it so difficult to do any kind of fall decor when we lived in Central Florida. I was so thrilled to get back to an area that has all the changing seasons. I love how you have embraced it. Thank you for the great party. Cathy

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

LOVE the blue willow (of course because that's what I eat off of every day lol!) There is nothing prettier than blue and orange for Fall we think :) You are making us feel bad for not getting our decorations at home out yet lol!! Guess what we'll be doing this week....we'd better because we have to start getting Christmas out at the store....and then our time is all gone for ourselves!! Thanks again for hosting ~ always a fun party!!

Your Fall vignettes and such are beautiful. I love the arrangement that your daughter and grandson sent. I live in the south as well. So, Fall foliage is at a very minimal here. Thanks so much for the party. And for stopping by The Southern Special. Have an awesome day.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Patti, your home looks wonderful....and yes, while it may be a little sad you don't have the 4 seasons, I tell ya you also don't have these wicked awful cold long grey horrific winters! Fair trade, I'd venture to say, huh? : - )

Patti,
I love the table where you have the orange colors with the beautiful blue and white plate. You're right, a touch of blue goes with so many things. And do you know that the blue tea cups are the prettiest to me? Your Autumn décor looks so festive and lovely in your home. I look forward to seeing some of your Christmas ideas too. I am always filled with inspiration when I come and visit.

love,
~Sheri

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dearest Patti! Good morning! I hope your Friday is off to a good start! We here in Minnesota are off (yesterday and today) for MEA conferences, and both teachers and students really need the break! How is your teaching year going?

Your kind comment this morning cut straight and lovingly into my heart, because just recently, I experienced yet another judgement on my character from someone who does not know me. With every good intention, some people think they know you AND what is best for you. But each of us knows and better yet, GOD knows what is best for us. I am grateful that He puts that suggestion into each individual heart in order that we may explore it, ourselves. Now that's God's freedom!

Be happy and cozy today! Anita

Patty Antle said...

Your Fall touches are just lovely. It's amazing you make that beautiful door arrangement from thrifty places. Thanks for sharing these inspiring ideas.

Marlene Plasencia said...

Oh Patti, I'm so loving your fall vignettes, they are so beautiful. Here in Miami we have to create our fall colors and that ok, it's fun too. You had such inspiration with those lovely flowers.
I'm late to the party again, but I made it. Thanks for hosting.
Blessings,
Marlene

Burlap Luxe said...

Oh Patti,
What a wonderful daughter and grandson to think of your during this Autumn season with all the fall-ness around us encouraging us to look all around at the colourfull changes.
Your vignettes always speak perfection, they couldn't have been more perfect. Love the $1.00 store for things just like this. You really don't mind any wear and tear to such loveliness when the price is so right.
And your entry table is so beautiful, it shows off the vignette with a perfect welcoming to all things fall.

Thank you dear for your beautiful visit.
I have been working on new projects and creating for the holidays as well, see you and your beauty soon.

Xoxo
Dore
