~~~FLOWERS for the coffee table!!!~~~

 Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all having a good weekend. It is hot and HUMID here in Pa. It feels HEAVY when you step outside. But, just for YOU, I went out and cut some flowers for my coffee table.
 The hydrangeas are blooming profusely and they are all in different stages and colors but I just cut some blue ones for now. I have one bush that is already green! Way too early, so I guess I will start drying some now. I never do that til August or Sept. My lillies are still looking and SMELLING good so I also snipped some Rose of Sharon blooms.

 This is my faux hydrangea arrangement that I made several years ago, in a TINY urn. It is done on a styroroam ball and the pieces of hydrangea are cut apart. I then also added some creamy berries, that were on a garland and just cut that into pieces too. It adds just the right finishing touch, don't you think?
 If I ever find another tiny urn, I will do a tutorial for you!

 See how tiny it is.
 I added a glass full of Rose of Sharon too. for the vignette.

Thanks for stopping by. I will join these parties next week:
Table Top Tuesday @ A Stroll Thur Life Wow Us Wednesdays @ Savvy Southern Style
Open House Thursday
Feathered Nest Friday
Seasonal Sundays


  1. I am definitely planing hydrangeas at our new house! They are so beautiful!

  2. Maybe next year I can put some hydrangeas in the ground.. this year it was all stuff I know would grow. Those are soo pretty. I love your sweet vignette. I bet it smells great too. xo marlis

  3. Pinky,
    Your newest decor find looks amazing with the added hydrangea and rose of sharon included with your gorgeous lilly!!! Lovely vignette!!!

  4. Hi Pinky,
    The flowers are so pretty and give that corner of your room such a fresh feeling. I love the look of it.

  5. Gorgeous....... I wish hydrangeas grew well in our part of the country.... yours are so pretty! However, everything you put together always turns out pretty!

  6. Love the hydrangeas, mine are blooming now too and the colors are beautiful. I have never had luck drying my hydrangeas before the end of the summer, they would just wilt. Someone told me they still had to much moisture in them to dry. Let me know if it works for you now. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

  7. Hi Pinky! Oh, your flowers are so beautiful. I just love hydrangeas. I think everyone does - they're so pretty! Your tiny little urn with your fauxs is a precious as can be too. we're hot and humid too. We have had some rains the past few days and that has really steamed up the air!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. You are such a wonderful floral designer!!...Gorgeous table!!

  9. Your flowers from your yard are still so beautiful to be able to cut and bring inside. Hopefully I'll get another round of hydrangeas before the summer is over.
    Thanks so much for stopping by and your sweet comments, Mary Alice

  10. Hi Pinky~ I love your hydrangea arrangement~ ours are LONG gone! Have you ever propagated new plants from cuttings? My MIL has some gorgeous varieties that I thought I might cut and try to propagate with some rooting hormone. I've heard it's a challenge to over winter them. Have a great week :)

  11. I am new from Blue Monday and found you here! Lovely flowers. We have desert temps in Denver! UGH! Love your shots! Thanks for the sweet share! Hugs Anne

  12. Oh my, they are gorgeous. I love them. Such beautiful bouquets. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  13. Wow! You must have one fantastic garden if you cut those flowers from it! Struggling just to keep everything alive around's hot!

  14. I love hydrangeas! Your arrangement is beautiful.


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
