Cream and Coral Autumn Arrangement




When I walk in the front door, I can see all the way to the back porch, 
and this chalkboard is where the eyes rest. So, it's a great spot for an autumn arrangement!
I love coral-pink, warty pumpkins, and this year, I grabbed one while they still had them. 
I mixed it with the small cream pumpkins and a few things from the sea.
I bought the acorn garland, but painted the orange pumpkins Annie Sloan Arles.
The flowers are a coral shade of mini carnations combined with eucalyptus in a gold metal watering can.  Carnations often last a week here, but I think a bunch of baby's breath would be pretty as well.
The drawing is mine.



















At night, I add a small candle.










These colors have such a beautiful pink glow at night.









It's uncomplicated, but elegant.



The other spot that is decorated was done by my daughter for her teen shed.
Ten Touches of Autumn

  3. A lovely spot for the eye to rest... Glad that you snagged the pink, warty pumpkin. I have never seen one in my corner.

    1. Thank you, Vee. Pumpkins are hard to come by here. It's warm and unless you keep in the house, it will go bad before Thanksgiving. So, I love it when I find one of these. I also like those bluish green ones, but I have never seen them here. Have a great week. xoxo Su

  6. How pretty, such a lovely, soft way to say autumn. I picked up two bunches of eucalyptus at Traders Joe's today, it is the first time I have seen it there. Now seeing how you used it has given me inspiration. Thank You!

  13. These pumpkins are a favorite of mine too. I think they look like they have barnacles...perfect seaside or I like to say seawashed pumpkin. Coral is is lovely palette for Autumn. I hope to visit your blog more as I slowly return to my blog. And I hope you will come by to visit and say hello. Happy Autumn Equinox.

    1. Thank you, Kerryanne... I agree. It reminds me of a sea urchin... I will. I've had a virus for the last week, and I have been so sick, and I rarely get sick. I think it is a flu due to the aches and pains that come with it. We have all had here now. xoxo Su

    2. We had that flu last week too. It is a strange one because it felt like it would come and go for about 7 days. I had my comments open but already closed them. Not sure if I will ever fully return. My days are currently just so beautiful and peaceful the way they are. I hope you feel better soon. Rest and sunshine helped me recover.

    3. It is wonderful to have a calm days. Thank you so much, dear. xoxo
      It may be the same virus. My spouse brought it back from travel. It has been about six days so far, and it does wax and wane. It is strange. Just when you think you are getting over a symptom, something else arises. My daughter has been sick for over a week now, and my spouse still has a cough after 2 weeks.

  15. The soft colour of your carnations goes so well with the copper jug.
