Fall Buffet Arrangement

Sunday, October 9, 2011

In an effort to add a little fall decor to my home I made an arrangement for my buffet, You know the one that I bought months ago that's not finished...

Yea this one.

Well the plan is to have it done by Thanksgiving so feeling very optimistic I went ahead and made myself a fall  arrangement to set upon it. It's 99% fake flowers and 1% real flowers taken from my garden. I used succulents and some dark leaves from a shrub that  I don't know the name of. Everything else is from my stash with the exception of the gourds that I purchased from the dollar store. I made the arrangement in a soup tureen that I bought years ago at The Goodwill.  The cost of the whole shebang is about 4.00 dollars. I REALLY think I have way to much stuff. I added a little more fall color to this than my side table arrangement. Lately I've become fond of asymmetrical arrangements, I tend to go through phases with my floral designs... this is the design that I came up with ...for now. I tend to pick at things and change them around a million times. By the time Thanksgiving actually arrives it will probably look very different.

I guess I'd better stop playing with flowers and get back to furniture or else I'll end up doing that dance with my hubby, you know the one ... I put an arrangement on the dining room table and he moves it...grrr.  I've given up on it, ya know you've got to pick your battles. Anyone else have that problem? Oh yeah Picnic  has some really cool Halloween effects. I used VampiraScope on the pic third  from the bottom.  Well I'm off to work on furniture .Wish me luck! I 'll be linking up with these great parties this week,

  1. Love it. I am a sucker for any kind of flower arrangement. I always use a little bit of faux and a little bit of real. I love the artichoke. I don't think its too full at all and I like the asymmetrical design. I always try to pull something like that off but never seem to be successful at it. LOL Can't wait to see your finished buffet.

  2. Very pretty, Karen! I love how nice and full your arrangement is!

  3. This is absolutely MAGAZINE WORTHY!!!!! Truly wonderful. I love the asymmetry.

    I also can not wait to see the new buffet!!!!


  4. Beautiful, Karen! I love the arrangement and the contrast of the burlap underneath, and the silver tray behind! Gorgeous. Thanks so much for stopping by Take Six.

  5. Oh that is beautiful! Love the artichokes! $4 no way! Perfect!

  6. Your fall arrangement is beautiful! Looks professionally arranged and I love the combination you put together! How nice you got such great one would ever know..It really looks fabulous!
    Happy Fall,

    Miss Bloomers

  7. I think it is gorgeous!!
    Your new buffet is going to be amazing!!! Can't wait to see!

  8. Mixing real with fake is a good idea..looks beautiful!

  9. Love it-you did a wonderful job putting it together. And..the buffet? Well- if it doesn't get done for Thanksgiving you can always shoot for Christmas!;>)

    We have our "battles" too. My biggest pet peeve is that MyHero leaves EVERY door he opens-OPEN! Pantry, cupboard, bathroom cabinet, closets...just drives me round the bend. I get even- I use his toothbrush to scrub his sink- works for me!;>) xo Diana

  10. Wow! That is a gorgeous arrangement! Great job!

  11. Wow! I have zero talent when it comes to flowers. This is just lovely!!


  12. Dearest Karen,

    Well, you are working hard at trying to 'cover up' your unfinished buffet. But for sure you will manage that part too before a month has passed!
    Love to you,


  13. How pretty. I love centerpiece floral arrangements, but have to be careful since our two cats tend to chew on the "fun" things.

  14. Your floral centerpiece is perfect for Fall. Great colors and variety of plant material. I love that it's a mix of faux and real.

  15. Your arrangement is beautiful! I can't wait to see what you do with your buffett.

  16. This is so pretty and very different, I am very impressed.

  17. Karen, that's a very nice arrangement. I see a little autumn joy in the mix. My fave. You'll get around to the buffet, and when you do, it will be beautiful.

  18. I just love the colors in your arrangement! That last picture is my favorite. You sound like me - always changing things up. I don't think you should change that arrangement though. It's pretty just the way it is.

  19. Your floral arrangement is stunning! I adore the color and the mixture of elements! The prior post is another stunner!

  20. Karen, your arrangement is so pretty, and I am confident your finished buffet will be equally as pretty!

  21. the fall arrangement is beautiful - loved all your different textures with the picture.

  22. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments! I love this arrangement! I am a huge fan of using artichokes and grapes in floral arrangements. This is just gorgeous! Very pretty!

  23. Your arrangement looks great. All those different photo effects are pretty cool too.

    My boys were notorious for messing with my decorating... if only to move stuff an inch or two. Just to see if I noticed!

    Thanks for joining the party again this week.

  28. Hi Karen,
    Your arrangement is just gorgeous!! You did a fabulous job on it.I'm starting to love making flower arrangements.


  29. Wow... you put together a really beautiful arrangement! I really love the artichoke tucked in there. It will be so fun to see your finished buffet!

  30. I love the asymmetrical look also. That buffet looks a lot like mine that I painted in January. It's turquoise, but I may be repainting it soon because the turquoise just isn't fitting in my room.

  31. You have done a very great job. Your fall arrangement looks so beautiful. I press all tumbs, that you'll find time to finish the buffet. I'm sure, that it get a fantastic makeover!
