  1. Lory, your floral arrangement is beautiful! I went through my Fall decor and all I wanted to use were the muted colors. Everything else just felt overwhelming to me. It’s so nice to have other options for Fall decor.

  2. So pretty, Lory! The easy way is really the best way…it’s best not to overdo. 🙂

  3. Very pretty! I love how you thought out of the box, or at least, out of the floral department on this arrangement. I love using items from the produce department. It so looks like fall in your home.


  4. Lory, your centerpiece looks lovely! I love all of the elements you incorporated and how you stayed true to your style! I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!

  5. The vignette is so lovely. I love how you used the untraditional colors for your fall look.

    Lory, I was really into the “use produce in the arrangement” idea. I thought the greenery was broccoli and since I don’t know what sedum looks like I guess ignorance is bliss! Broccoli will however not last too long without wilting.
    I’m not fond of orange either and have none in my home decor (or closet) but being a retired preschool teacher whose classroom was full of typical Fall colors I have to include oranges, maroons, and yellows for awhile or it just doesn’t seem like I’m welcoming the season. I really love your idea of including the white of cauliflower to tone down the brilliance of the orange. Always love your ideas. Cindy G

    1. Thanks, Cindy! I didn’t know it was called sedum either – I had to read the tag… lol. But the sedum was able to dry well, so I could keep it in the arrangement for a full week, whereas the cauliflower had to come out after a day. I use produce in table settings a lot, because they don’t have to last more than for the day of the meal.

      As for fall colors in decor, I find there’s still a nice way to use the actual colors of the season, as long as you don’t use them all together. I often get more into those colors later in the season. For instance with mums, I’ll go with burgundy, the dusty orange and cream, and it will still look pretty, as long as I don’t mix in the yellow or bright orange or the purple-y color.

      Thanks for reading!

  7. Soooo elegant with the perfect amount of fall added.
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

    I love the mixture of vegetables and the roses in this arrangement. I usually use grapes but I’m looking for something else that will hang down. I like to stick fresh flowers ini with something still blooming in my yard…always end up buying some fresh flowers and purple status is a favorite because it lasts so long. I’ve never used cauliflower! Tomatillos are nice and last too. I like to use old wooden cheese board or something rustic as my container. Always enjoy seeing your beautiful arrangements. XOXO

  9. This is so fun Lory! I especially like the spillover concept – I’m going to try that next time. Plus, if you’re sitting there with your tea and a book, and you feel a little snackish, you’ve got some cauliflower right handy! 🙂 Thanks as always for the beautiful inspiration!

  10. Beautiful! And the teacup and saucer ?

  11. Beautiful and original! Great inspiration!
