The theme for this month at the flower club I go to is Autumn Shades.
Only four arrangements to see in the competion entries, I think some members are away on holidays.
This arrangement had roses, sunflowers, crocosmia seed pods,chinese lanterns and foliage
Theme - Autumn Shades
Looking forward to seeing everyones Autumn Shades!
Looks like your class members are being inspired by your work, much like I have been. Their arrangements are beginning to become displays as well. I like the one particularly with the wood in the vase, neat design.
Yours is splendid with the pinecombs and quite the centerpiece.
What a great theme "lite my fire" LOL. That centerpiece you did is fabulous, lovin the colors and all the different variety of flowers. Again they are getting better, the bag is a neat idea and is sparkling, but yours takes the prize again!!!
LOL would you expect any less from me "mother earth" herself!!! LOL, you know saint of all saints, just kidding you know. I am not being partial, yours really stand out above the others always.
I love your arrangement Terri!!! It's very fresh and original!! Most of the other ones are nice but all sort of look the same. tee hee.
Nice one Sally, what is that on??? Looks like flat stones? Love the black as a contrast.
It is a slate rock with a built in vase with a frog inside for flowers. There is a polished area for a little "pond" with the rocks and dragonfly.
This is really large. I also have a small one.
Hubby and I bought them at an art festival in July.
Great purchase, love that concept of slate, what a great arrangement it produces. I bet it is quite heave to tote around.
Well it is fabulous darling!
I have an idea for my fall arrangement and will get it together soon as I can. Am off work tomorrow but will be power washing decks for the weekend and so not likely to have a moment for playing, but soon as that is finished!!!
That is an expansive fall arrangement elle, you have really been busy with fall planning. Would love to stop by and take a peek and purchase one of those items. Quite a spread you have managed, good luck on the sales.

Here is the close view of the zinnias, mum and of course sedum as they all last forever.
Thank you Steven, looking forward to seeing your Autumn arrangement. tee hee!
Hi Sally, Thanks for adding your pretty arrangement. I LOVE your new slate container, it would be nice to see them both side by side!! Great design having a built in vase. I might try to make something like that in the pottery class. Thanks for the idea!!
elle, your stall looks good, hope the sales were great! Thanks for sharing you Autumn festival.
Candee, VERY nice! Love the use of grasses, giving movement. Your pinecones are HUGE!!! gorgeous, what else are you going to do with them????? the close ups of the Zinnas and sedum are invisible but I guess thats just a blonde moment. haha! Thanks for making an Autumn arrangement for us.
Beautiful Autumn colours! I've never seen such big pinecones over here. I have bags of the smaller ones to play with from my Mums garden.
I have some tiny pinecombs as well, not sure where I got them. You know how big those northern pines get, well the combs are huge as you can see. I have lots here as well as our property is completely surrounded by pine trees. I used to gather a bunch of them each year and dip in wax and use as fire starters, but got to be a lot more work than I could handle and now we have switched to a gas fireplace here anyway!
Thanks for the compliments, I actually gave this one some thought! LOL
What a good idea for pine cones, it's a shame, I dont have a real fire either!!!!!
Would like to come up with some ideas for our pine cones, I'm sure they could be put to some good use.
I have seen them dipped and in a fireside basket just for the fragrance. A mix of them with some holly berries would be pretty at the holidays. I just don't have the time anymore since we have the cabin to sit on the weekends and do that crafty type of thing. Perhaps if I ever retire???
BEAUTIFUL! love the way you arranged them Sally. Thanks so much.
Is that the larger dish? very elegant.
Please bring the 'others' to the cafe, if you get time!!!!!!!
Now that is really neat. I still have to get accoustomed to using the leaves. You have such a great art ability to do that! Great job.
