Orange Roses and Seeded Eucalyptus and a Simple Fall Table

orange roses and seeded eucalyptus and a simple Fall tableHello friends.If you saw my Instagram feed yesterday you probably caught a glimpse of the seeded Eucalyptus bunch peeking out around my coffee mug. Yessss! I finally found some while I was out on errands and don't ask me why I can't find a single grocery store around here that carries fresh eucalyptus---but at this point, this stuff has become way too important in my flower-fixated head.

So of course, when I finally got my hands on a bunch ("oh my gosh you-have-it-here?!")I did what every normal floraphile (made up word) does with their fresh eucalyptus.I hung it from my chandelier.

Have you noticed this too?

And then one thing led to another and before I knew it I was cutting flower stems and putting them into a glass vase.  (and deciding that it looked too blah) But then I remembered this piece of white bark I had leftover from last year that just needed a little trimming.And voila. It became a cover for my vase.

Wood chargers keep the table more rustic and casual...especially since I have that vintage gold mirror in the room.

I added old brass candlesticks collected from thrift stores.And if I had more time, I would've added those dark grapes into the centerpiece, because I love that color.

I hung burlap tassels from the dark, green wreath before I placed it over the mirror.

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year?

If so, don't forget the extra bunch of eucalyptus for your chandelier. I tied mine with the green wire you get in the garden section of the local home improvement store.

I think your guests will love sitting underneath such a sweetly decorated chandelier! Let me know how it goes.xoLeslie
