This week I made a minimal fall wreath, and now I’m sharing how to make a fall centerpiece with apples & hydrangeas. Sometimes when you don’t have time to go out and buy something for a pretty fall table, you get creative and make something out of nothing. And the result is organic, beautiful, and practically free!
We are celebrating Madeline’s 28th birthday. I used some old clay pots and clipped some hydrangeas that had a little of the blush coloring on them.
Supplies for Fall Centerpiece
- 3-6 small/medium clay pots
- potting soil
- skewers or chopsticks
- candle holders
- Table linens in colors that coordinate with organic material used (I used dark red linen napkins from Garnet Hill that I’ve used many times). You can see how I used them in this post and this one.
How I Made a Fall Centerpiece with Apples & Hydrangeas
- Clean up the pots and fill them with garden soil, pea gravel, or sand.
- Clip hydrangeas and cut them so that it sits on top of the pot with no stem showing.
- Then take a chopstick, insert it into the bottom of the apple, and cut to size once you’ve determined the length you need. Stick it into the bed of hydrangea petals and position it so that it’s sort of in the center.
- Place the pot on a clay saucer or small plate and arrange it down the center of your table. Make one, three, 10…it will take no time, and you have an almost free fresh organic centerpiece!
Too simple or just right? My new theme! I’m all about making it simple but beautiful!
Other fall favorites this week with my friends Cindy and Mary Ann!
2. It’s Coat Season!
I love this time of year and can’t wait to wear coats! I stopped by the J.McLaughlin store in Darien, CT, to say hello to my Friend Suzanne, the store manager, who had so many gorgeous coats. Coats for every climate. The fabrics move so beautifully that I couldn’t make up my mind. I need to go back. But here are my two favorites, although Suzanne said this coat has sold out three times!
Post Wool Coat in Houndstooth
I would wear this brown houndstooth coat with everything from white jeans to all black. Over a dress, or with pants and a turtleneck. I loved the feeling of this unlined coat.
Julianne Camel Coat
This coat reminded me of being in Paris on our last Saturday night. I couldn’t help but notice that it was “Coat over your shoulder” season in Paris. This camel coat is perfect. It feels luxurious and would make you feel “dressed” for any occasion!
3. The Wreath Room
I came across this beautiful Instagram account this week. They grow, harvest, and dry flowers for wreath making, but how they hang the flowers to dry is as artistic as the wreaths they make. You can check it out right here.
4. Baked Brie that Looks Like a Linzer Cookie
You can see it in this reel on Instagram; she tells a little about the brie you buy in the United States vs. France!
5. Juliet Has the Prettiest Green Kitchen
It’s absolutely beautiful! Green looks good with everything! White, black, copper, brass, wood…It’s the perfect green, and she breaks it all down in this post.
That’s it for this week! Let’s go see what Mary Ann & Cindy Found!
