Fall Arrangement Refreshed

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

So super excited that Autumn is officially only 9 days away!
My favorite season of the year!
Love the weather,
and the richness of nature displayed in splendid magnificent colors!

It's still warm, here in NC, but I have started transitioning my home towards Fall just the same.
{If I waited for much cooler temps...I'd be infringing on Christmas!!! ha!}

My fall decorating began with an arrangement,
that was inspired by the very talented Pat, from Back Porch Musings.
I sighted the beautiful arrangement in her post, "Compelled," posted on 8/29/11.
Loved the tall rooster piece and rich colors she used.

I had many similar components to Pat's arrangement on hand.
Started with an old arrangement of flowers.

Purchased a new foam base, and a few fresh colors from Hobby Lobby...50% off.

Combined them for a "topper" for my rooster base.

Gathered a few other fall pieces to assemble a vignette.

And the vignette is complete...
