Just playing with some decor around here as I shift things from summer to pre-fall.
Without meaning to I found myself with a bunch of dried blooms.
I shared with you not to long ago this post where I found myself with some dried roses that were reminiscent of my wedding.
And I always have dried hydrangeas from the garden towards the end of the summer, which I use throughout the house all year round.
And I decided to dry some sunflowers for fall decorating since I thought it would be an interesting twist to the fresh sunflowers I use in the fall.
And these white blooms inadvertently dried in the guest room when the vase dried up.
And dried lavender is always somewhere around here.
I put them all under glass since this would bring them all together and make them a cohesive grouping | vignette although they are all so varied.
You can always use this trick by either using like items which unites them in a vignette OR use similar vessels to display items that don’t necessarily match.
I chose cloches for this instance but you could for example use silver platters, bowls & pitchers or ironstone or whatever you collect or strikes your fancy.
Don’t over think it just always have one detail that ties items together to have them all get along if you will.
I love using cloches because it makes whatever you put inside | under them immediately a gazillion times more interesting.
I had my sea shells and coral under most of my cloches over the summer, which I shared here.
But I have slowly started to put away my summer decor transitioning into pre-fall mode, which brought me to this.
I love decorating sometimes when you don’t have an exact plan but you just play and sometimes you end up with fun & novel ideas.
Have you started transitioning away from summer and towards fall?
I know it seems early, BUT my kiddos start school on Monday and back to school always symbolizes fall to me.
You can see other glass cloches vignettes I created: late summer 2015 & fall 2015.
Happy pre-fall decorating!
