Mum's The Word!

 Its time again for another fabulous Lowe's Creative Ideas project and this month it is All About Mums!

So when I heard that was the theme I knew it would be a fun one to challenge myself with.

So after thinking about it for awhile...

And being inspired by Pinterest and pictures on Facebook....

I decided to do an entire week just about MUMS!

This vignette started with my favorite plaid fall rug and a new McCoy small pottery piece I got at a yardsale this weekend.  Isn't it darling?  I think it was $2!  What a steal :)

 I added it with some greenery and two containers of sedums.  The green one is one that has been on the deck all summer.  It is just a groundcover sedum start from the garden.  But it has been so pretty even during the hot, dry weeks.

The hen and chicks is a new one from Lowe's, I loved the big fat petals.  The container is from the same yardsale, I think this one was $1.  It doesn't have any markings but I think it is old as well.  Love the colors.

Another shot of the sedum.  It was marked down to $3 and I will move it to my kitchen window for the winter then back outside next spring.

The mums I picked up were in the 4" pots.  They were $1.99 and look beautiful.  I love the smaller sized ones to tuck into nooks and crannies.  I also have very good luck planting them and having them come back year after year if I buy the smaller sized ones.

I really loved the deep magenta color as well.  They will be beautiful in the borders next year.

Okay, this is just day one!  So come back for new ideas every day this week.

  1. Beautiful vignette and lovely flowers! So warm and inviting. Visiting from Mod Vintage. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House which goes live at 8am CST on Monday. Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  2. A very beautiful vignette, love the plaid bring such great colors. I also love your Mccoy pottery. So very pretty! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

  3. Hi Brooke! What a gorgeous vignette! It has all of my favorite colors and textures and it's so warm and inviting. (The McCoy and the other little container were definitely a steal) I haven't purchased any of my Fall flowers yet, but thanks to your lovely tablescape, I think I'll be heading off to Lowes this week. Stopping by from Creative Monday and newly following via GFC, FB, Linky & Pinterest. Thanks so much for the inspiration! ~Mary (pinning this too!)

  4. These are gorgeous! What a beautiful, elegant display for fall.. I am always so envious of those with a green thumb as plants come to my house to die (so it's a good thing we live next door to our landscaper!) Thanks so much for sharing with the Pink Hippo Party! I am your newest follower~
