You can make gorgeous floral arrangements with just a few things from around the house that you probably already have. A vase or pitcher. Some flowers. A tray or board. Some filler. Mix and arrange until it looks just the way you want it. That is how I made the one below.
I have been slowly bringing fall colors and décor into the house...but since I used orange in the house through the summer I
thought I could continue to use it for autumnal color too.
I have been re-arranging and mixing containers and filler. Here is what I created using a mix of silks and faux artichokes.
This is the piece of pottery from earlier in the summer. I love the cracks in the glaze that make it look old.
And look at the pretty curved handles...
Even though this is the "Bridal" edition of the housekeeping book ...I think that we older brides might enjoy this book too. I am not selling the book...but rather mentioning it in case you need a gift for a new bride, or an older bride, or yourself!
Look at this...a chart for pan volumes. I had home economics when I was in school way back in the sixties, yes the sixties, and I never saw/learned these measurements. (I do not remember seeing them in the red and white checked cookbook either.) Now I have this handy chart from this great book. You might find it helpful too.
Here is a recipe that looked good to me. I love pasta, bacon, peas, and cheese! yum.
Have a great week...and let me know what you are doing to bring some autumnal feel into your house.
I have not yet started on my porches. Do you have any ideas? What
are you doing?
I would love to hear from you!
