Sunflowers are a symbol to me, that summer is winding down. In Nova Scotia, they bloom in the later part of August. I guess that’s why I associate them with the seasonal transition that many don’t want to talk about. 😉 However, Fall is my favourite season. I love everything about it! These sunflowers grew in our vegetable garden this year. I brought some home last weekend to enjoy on the dining room table.
A very simple centrepiece:
A flat “basket” that I found at an antique shop for $5.
A thrifted milk glass vase $5.99
Thrifted vintage brown transfer ware ( I forget…but cheap! 😉
The feathers are from the turkey pen at my sisters house. (Thanks to
my niece for going in and getting them for me. Those turkeys
freek me out a bit.)
I love to put together simple vignettes and centrepieces. All you have to do is pick a theme or coordinating colours. Cluster together an odd number of items that are varying heights. Easy peasy! Have a great long weekend!
