Almost every where we look this time of year, nature has something amazing for us to see.
Our world is a tapestry of color and texture.
I couldn’t agree more with this quote:
Of all the seasons, autumn offers the most to man
and requires the least of him. ~Hal Borland
What a feast for our eyes and our senses!
And what a feast I had yesterday!!
I know I talked about getting out in that world and bringing the outdoors in. Though I went out collecting yesterday, my next step is to assemble my finds and see if I can artfully photograph the beauties. You’ll just have to wait a bit longer… [wink]
Today I thought I’d share a simple and earthy faux fall vignette I created at my friend’s home.
She had stopped at the local JoAnn’s and picked up a few items on sale…this fun bottle and the large sunflower pick with berries and fun leaves were just two of her finds.
The lovely tray was already gracing her table along with some summery votive candle holders. The candle holders went into storage and I grabbed the tray for our vignette. It makes a wonderful base for this collection of faux fall with its color and raised dot design, and echos the raised dots on the bottle. What a happy coincidence! Next, I raided her box of faux fall goodies. I love how the green gourds and pumpkins provide a monochromatic complement to the bottle’s coloration with their similar shades of green.
Quickly I put this arrangement together. The bottle was first placed on the tray, and then the dramatic pick of sunflower, leaves, and berries were added. Next the assortment of gourds and pumpkins filled out the space. Voila! An earthy faux fall vignette for the sideboard!
Now…I’m off to create a fall tablescape and collect some more bits of nature from the garden.
