Fall Herbal Centerpiece

Fall Herbal Centerpiece

I was perusing the internet, when I stumbled upon Trisha’s Blowing Away Out WestΒ fall blog postΒ 4 Projects Cast a Spell for a Bewitching Kitchen.

As I was reading the first project, I was dreaming of having such a big kitchen and a wonderfully huge island that could allow such an enormous bouquet!

But dreams are dreams and I kept reading.

There were such fun Halloween ideas! But some years I get around to decorating and some years I don’t. This was one of those “don’t” years. Although I thought the spell book was awesome and pinned it for future “do” years.

I kept thinking about that bouquet.

And I decided that on a smaller scale, I could do something similar.

So after work, I grabbed some scissors, and a vase and hurried outside before it got dark.

I filled the vase with rainwater.

Using several long pieces of rosemary, I created a backdrop for my bouquet.

I then added some purple basil for color, lime basil seed stalks for interest, dill flowers for contrast, and fennel fronds for texture.

Then I realized that a few eucalyptus stems as filler would complete the arrangement.

It doesn’t photograph well, but I am so pleased with how it turned out and the aroma is divine!

      I dream of a spectacular yard some day…. but as you saw, its only tiny areas of color. I am working on it though. I am really enjoying my “herb bed.” Thanks for your support Lisa. πŸ™‚

      Thank you Ricki. I am amazed actually how much I can smell it without touching it. I always thought that you had to touch herbs to smell them. πŸ™‚

      I am making it a goal to do it more often Maureen! I have enjoyed this aromatic bouquet so much. Thanks for visiting with me. πŸ™‚

    Oh the wonderful scent of eucalyptus. I picked some up at the flower stall at my super market. Adding herbs to them for an arrangement–what a great idea.

      Thanks Carrie! I love having an herb bed and the more varieties I can find to plant the better! Thanks for the info on the link party. I will go check it out. πŸ™‚

    Good Afternoon Nikki, As they say, ‘the best things come in little parcels’ and I think your centre piece fits right into that category. The aroma in your room bust have been gorgeous. I love the added touch of the eucalyptus branches….. just gorgeous.
    Best Wishes

    I really like how wild your arrangement is, so pretty. My inspiration can come from Pinterest of course, but this morning I was really excited because I finally sorted out my Christmas theme based on some song lyrics I heard.It so fun where inspiration sparks like that. Happy belated Halloween.
