Welcome to Saturday,, Chitchat. Today, we are talking about Floral Bouquets and more! It’s always nice to decorate our homes in the fall and winter with a pretty flower arrangement. Flowers brighten our homes and our moods.
I’m so excited for fall and the holidays. So, let’s kick off this Saturday’s post with some beautiful flower arrangments. Nothing is as pretty as a bouquet of fresh flowers with their wonderful floral fragrances.
It’s been quite a week. We are traveling home from our family trip to Vermont. So today’s post might not be as long as past ones.
But sit back and enjoy a moment with some pretty floral bouquets for the fall.
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 88
Do you have a bouquet of fresh flowers? Or maybe your flower garden is producing some pretty blossoms! Whatever your source of flowers is, think about arranging them and brightening up your home for the fall.
Faux or fresh flowers add so much color and coziness to a space.
I hope you enjoy this post and are inspired to create some flowers this weekend!
Personal Note from Janine
We spent a week in Vermont and in fact, I’m writing this post on the plane.
It was an unexpected trip back east since my father-in-law recently passed away.
The family made the best of gathering and we spent the time supporting my mother-in-law.
It was nice to have beautiful weather and peak foliage while in New England. We all the needed the pretty trees during this sad time of our lives.
I hope you all are enjoying some fall foliage this year.
Thanks so much for all your kind words and support.
This Week’s Inspiration – Flora Bouquets
I love to integrate fruit into my bouquets! It’s an easy way to color and seasonal accents. This time of year is plentiful fruit like figs, persimmons, apples, pears, and more.
Think outside the traditional flower arrangement and have fun creating a fall bouquet.
I rounded up 19 fall centerpieces for this post. Plan and add a pretty arrangement to your Thanksgiving table this year.
This post is a great resource to help you choose and make an easy and beautiful bouquet.
Martha Stewart always has unique ideas for floral arrangements. If you cannot find some flowers in your area, try rounding up some fall leaves.
I love the natural and moody bouquets that fall leaves create. Not only are they pretty, but they’re also inexpensive. Have love that they were cheap!
This sweet fall arrangement has pepper berries, oak leaves, buckeyes, and much more. My florist friend, Kathy,, created this exquisite bouquet for me.
Place a bunch of flowers in a vintage soup tureen,, and it is a perfect combination for fall.
For this post, I put together two beautiful fall bouquets. The bouquets are unique since the flower vases are rattan baskets. I lined them with plastic Ziploc bags and transformed them into adorable vases.
The rattan adds a nice cozy fall touch!
If you have a bounty of dahlias in your flower garden, this is the arrangement for you.
Add a few cosmos, zinnias, and nandina leaves for this bright and colorful fall arrangement. Who says fall flowers can only be oranges and rust-colored?
Boutique of the Week – Fall Pillows
This time of year, I can’t get enough fall leaves. So, to have them on my pillows is such a fabulous idea.
Cozy up your sofa this year with some pretty pillows!

This Week’s Tip – Plant Limelight Hydrangea
Plant Some Limelight Hydrangeas!
My good friend, Loi from Loi Thai, has the prettiest Limelight Hydrangeas. He inspired me this fall to put two plants in our garden.
Our nursery only carries them in the fall, so I made sure to buy some this year. When planting them, I made sure to water them thoroughly for the first week. We had warm weather, so I wanted to ensure they didn’t struggle for moisture.
I’m looking forward to watching them blossom among our rock roses and rosemary.
