Fall Flowers Around the House

I can't believe it's November already. That means the holidays are fast approaching - as in full-steam ahead, don't blink, just around the corner quick. Therefore, I know I need to get the house ready for Thanksgiving followed soon by Christmas!

To me, nothing brings a touch of home to a house like flowers. Since the farm is only a weekend place, I use silk florals but I would love to use fresh flowers. How pretty is this arrangement in a mason jar?
And with time at a premium this time of year, what better way to get those pretty flowers than to have them delivered? BloomNation has some beautiful selections - if you haven't heard of BloomNation before, they are an online marketplace that supports local florists through their flower delivery service. What a great way to bring in the beauty of fresh florals!

For now though, I have to use what works best for me: thus on the fireplace, a thrifted picnic basket holds a bouquet of mixed silk flowers and dried naturals:

The coffee table has my book page pumpkin on a wooden stand surrounded by sunflowers, leaves, and berries:

A large metal basket near the entryway holds more flowers and berries:

And on the table, a wooden dough bowl holds a simple arrangement of sunflowers with berries and a mini pumpkin:

I love how the flowers, Fall leaves, and berries add a warm and homey touch to my decor. And before I know it, it will be time to change it out for Christmas! But for now, I am loving my Fall flowers.


  1. I love fall flowers. :)

    They are the BEST!!!!!!!!

    Love your sunflowers....totally remind me of fall!

    Happy day friend!

    1. Thanks, KariAnne! Fall truly is my most favorite time of year, followed closely by Christmas. Those sunflowers are almost as good as the real thing. ;)
      Have a great day!

  2. I love fall bouquets too! The warm colors are so pretty. You have some beautiful little vignettes set up. I especially love the book page pumpkin and the dough bowl arrangement! I wish I could find some silks as pretty as yours. I just haven't seen much this year. Hope you're having a great week!

    Hugs, Vicky

  3. I am loving your Fall flowers, too, Cecilia. I love the warm, earthy colors of Fall and they make me want to hunker down and prepare for the winter-to-come. Love all your arrangements and LOVE the dough bowl. xo Diana

  4. Love your fall decorating, Cecilia. I think every room needs something growing in it (or appearing to grow!) I do a mix of silk, dried, and real that makes me happy without breaking the bank :) You're a great decorator!

    1. Thank you, Diana! I love the real deal but I wouldn't get to enjoy/take care of them so silk it is. At least, those have come a long way and most look very real.
      Just so you know, you are showing as a no reply blogger. :-)

  5. Ohhhh Cecilia! These flowers are gorgeous, and you're so right...silk has come a very long way in the last few years. I remember when they looked like plastic from a mile away, now you almost have to touch them to know. Your dough bowl is lovely, as are all your arrangements. I know the first one isn't yours, but me wanty ;).

  6. Hi Cecilia,
    I hadn't heard of Bloom Nation, I like that they support local florists.
    Such pretty photos of all of your floral arrangements and vignettes. Love that dough bowl and your book page pumpkin.
    Have a wonderful rest of your week!

    1. Thanks, Kimberely! Me too- it's good to support local. The pumpkin was easy to do. I'd like to make a couple of more someday. Have a good rest of the week too!

  7. Your book page pumpkin is wonderful! I love all of the pretty fall bouquets!

  8. Beautiful! I, too, am loving the book page pumpkin. Fall is my favorite season. Perhaps because it's such a relief after a TX summer, but mostly because of the rich warm colors. Happy November!
