Sydney and I have spent this past week helping my mom recover from foot surgery, and when we went to get her flowers I knew I had to do something to make the arrangement feel as fall like as possible. Her house was lacking a festive touch. That’s when the pumpkins caught my eye, and I recalled a pin I had seen last week. So I broke out the carving knife, cleaned out the pumpkin, added a low vase, some water, and beautiful flowers. This is a simple way to create a stunning centerpiece!
Our house needed some greenery, so yesterday Sydney and I spent the afternoon planting. Syd loves flowers and gardens, but unfortunately all we can fit on our balcony is a small herb garden in a flower box. So she was so excited when I broke out the dirt and an assortment of containers from our china cabinet! Planting indoors is still lots of fun, actually more fun than outdoors when temps are inching close to 100! I also took her to the store and let her pick out the plants. Of course she was immediately drawn to all the cute little succulents!
I think she liked planting in the tea cup the best, especially since she decided her favorite plant would go in there.
The succulents in assorted containers are perfect grouped together as a centerpiece on a table….
Or separated and placed in different rooms around the house. And the best part is, they are easy to keep alive!
