fall floral arrangment

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

You guys aren't going to get much fall decor out of me this year.  Here in Houston it's still in the 90's, we're wearing shorts, and swimming.  I see all the beautiful pumpkins in the grocery stores and I want them, but I'm having a hard time popping them in the cart when I'm still sweating outside.  Fall has always been my favorite time of the year so this is a total bummer that I'm in this state of mind down here.  I want boots, sweaters, crisp fall air, and chili dagnabit!!!

Anywho... I recently came across the flower delivery company Bloom Nation and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to get in the fall spirit.  Flowers are always a pick-me-up so I bought myself some and did a little flower arranging.

I tell ya what, you can stick any color or style of flower into a fake pumpkin and you've got yourself fall.  It's a no brainer.  

The eucalyptus I've had for a couple of weeks now, but it dries out really nicely and lasts a long time.  The yellow Chinese Millet is dried so it's not going anywhere.  The only part of this arrangement that will need replacing is the purple stock.  There's a cup of water holding the purple stock inside, and the dried pieces are just stuck in between the cup and the pumpkin.  Easy peasy.

While I loved it on my coffee table, I knew Sam would be plucking buds off one by one until it was bald so I ended up placing it on the mantle for safe keeping.  

If you're looking for some inspiration for fall florals or just floral in general, check out Bloom Nation's Pinterest page.  I found all of the ones below there.  Love the succulents and the mini pumpkins!

Anyone else sweating their way through the start of fall and having a hard time getting in the spirit?  Sam kept bugging me to go outside so he could ride his Powerwheels Army Jeep yesterday afternoon.  I had to tell him to pack it in after 15 minutes.  It felt like my flesh was burning right off my arms.


  1. well i love it! you don't have to do much to do it beautifully! that is going to be my new mantra.

  2. So pretty and fresh! I love fall decor, but my house is mostly coastal inspired, so it's a challenge incorporating autumnal themes with all my teal and white. ;) This is SO pretty! I love me some eucalyptus.
    Will you share with us where you found the white faux pumpkin?


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, you guys totally make my day!
