Summer Wildflowers and a Tabletop Vignette!

*

*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a marvelous Monday!
*
I have another busy week ahead. Honey is home for another vacation week...this week! I have sooo many things that I would like to get done...and need to get done, however I never really get anything accomplished when honey is home (just sayin')! Hehe!
*
I did go and pick a large bouquet of Colorado wildflowers to make a pretty centerpiece for my dining room table this weekend...thought I would share it with you today. These beautiful lavender/purple wildflowers are growing everywhere on our property. I think they are sooo pretty and I have found that they last a long time after cutting them and bringing them inside. The small budded white flowers remind me a bit of baby's breath...another wildflower growing on our property. They make for a pretty bouquet...don't you think?

Wildflowers and a Simple Tabletop Vignette...

*
A large white ironstone pitcher so sweetly holds the wildflower bouquet.
*
I dug out an old sagey green crockware pitcher and placed it under my large cloche that is sitting atop a glass pedestal cake plate. Simple...but beautiful!
*

*
A close-up shot of the pretty wildflowers. I love how the light from the window is shining on them...showcasing the beauty of a simple wildflower bouquet!!!

*
Teacups Under Glass...
*
On the opposite end of the table...another cloche. A white ironstone teacup and a couple of olive green transferware teacups are stacked and showcased "under glass"! Ahhh...simplicity...there is much to be said for it!!! A couple of embroidered "spring green" luncheon napkins...spoons...and one green apple share the spotlight...all placed upon a pretty lacy metal charger plate!
*
And...Voila!...summer wildflowers and a simple tabletop vignette for my dining room table!!! I hope you enjoyed!!!
*
*

Hi Chari,
This is so lovely my dear. The white pitcher, the green, the wildflowers, it's just a stunning contrast!
Those purple wildflowers remind me of lilacs! And the tea-cups, cloche and lace, such a beautiful combo!
You are a master of still photography, I need to get some tips from you when I'm there!
Can't wait of course!
Hugs,
Cindy

It's so nice when we can walk outside and pick our own flowers. I love these and you made a gorgeous arrangement. The pitcher is beautiful and so is your cloche with pretty teacups underneath. Very sweet vignette, Chari!

Teacups stacked are one of the coolest design elements. I love your flowers too!!!!

Theresa said...

Oh how I love a fresh bouquet and wildflowers are just fine with me! I have been steady making bouquets of hydrangeas and gardenias. The gardenias make the room smell so sweet and even though they don't last too long... I use them anyway!

Enjoy your evening dear Chari! Hugs!

Chari, Your pitcher of flowers is stunning. I love your cloche with the Meakin transferware cups displayed within. Such a cute idea! I think I saw a similar cloche at Hobby Lobby...really tall and thin...I may have to borrow your display idea. It's all so pretty!

Chari,

What a lovely table you set...you know I just love any kind of flower! Those wildflowers are gorgeous!! The purple/blue is so pretty with the crisp white ironstone and I love the pop of lime green from the apple. The cloches are womderful and so pretty! So glad your honey is home and maybe you can get him to do some things on your honey-do list!! Have a great week!

Very nice setting! Don't work too hard this week!

KBeau said...

Wish I had those beautiful flowers growing in (or just close to) my yard. I think the purple ones are some kind of phlox, and the white flowers are Queen Anne's lace. They are blooming all along the roadsides here in Alabama right now.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Your wildflowers look just perfect in that white pitcher, Chari! You're not alone either ~ when my hubby is home {whether day off or vacation} I don't get much done either. I always feel like I should spend the time with him {even if we just wind up watching a movie}.

Oh Chari, you always fix the most gorgeous vignettes, and your cloches are so wonderful. I love everything you put in them. Wish I was there to really enjoy it all. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Chari, those wildflowers are beautiful! What a great idea to put the pitcher under the cloche...it really sets it off! Linda

Heidi said...

Hello you sweet Chari!
You did it again. The wild flowers are just lovely, but then you add in the cloches and the teacups, and it makes a perfect vignette! Just lovely. And I adore that white pitcher - I want it!!!
Hope you are having a wonderful week.
Thanks for visiting and leaving such a sweet comment.
XOXO

I love the unusual shape of the cloche that covers the three teacups. So innovative. Thank you for visiting! Stan
