Autumn Centerpieces

2018-10-12 14.08.04

Decorative seasonal centerpieces can really brighten up your home. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the colors of Autumn. I’m always trying out different arrangement styles. Whether using food, gourds, votive candles, or flowers, gives a personal touch to any room in your home. These are a few of my Autumn Centerpieces.

Springtime Outdoors

Spring Flowers

Spring Flowers and Lavender

Lavender and Cinquefoil (from the rose family) always add a spring touch.

Rain Lillies

Aside from cooking and entertaining, I love flowers and herbs. Early spring, especially, is the time where beautiful flowers are available. Let me show you what I’ve been up to so far. Above are my rain Lilies. They bloom during the summer rainy season.

Spathiphyllum

Bird Feeder

Having Jasmine grow up a bird feeder with its little star-shaped white flowers begin to bloom. Their fragrance fills up the yard with such a beautiful aroma. I also want to say, checking the zone (climate area, etc..) in which plants or flowers will thrive is really important. I always try to Google the name of the plant or flower to seek the information first.

Hass Avocado Tree.jpg

This Haas avocado tree is really an experiment for me. I planted this pit from the avocado and this is what has happened so far. They say that the avocado tree grows very slowly, and I guess I’ll just have to be patient.

Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are definitely my favorite flower. Their beautiful large blooms and deep green leaves add so much color to my backyard,

Planting flowers or plants and watching them blossom and grow is an amazing feeling.

Comfort Place

Periwinkles

Changing up your accessories for the season can give you a whole new look. My lavender is growing so fast and the aroma fills up my “comfortable place”.

English Ivy

Just a few seasonal changes can make such a big difference. My next project is new patio furniture and a couple of new grills. I can see outdoor cooking videos in my future!

Seasonal Flowers, Herbs, And Plants

Whenever I set up any type of garden display, I make sure they’re always presented in odd numbers. As you can see I have three barrels set pretty close together using the same color pallet. Here they range from pink to red. I also you the same method whenever I set a table. I use odd amounts of candles, fruit displays, flowers, or herbs on the table. Β Set along the side of the carport, I have my hanging herb garden.

Once the rocking chairs, side table, and outdoor carpet arrive, I hope to transport this carport into a beautiful sitting area.

On the side of my house, set behind the rain lilies, I planted three sunflowers. In the backyard, my Fig Tree, Eggplant Plant, and Chives are doing just great! Β It’s an amazing feeling to see your garden plants, trees, and herbs thrive!πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“
