A Fantastic Flower Box

Happy Monday Everyone! Today I’m sharing a fantastic flower box with you. On Saturday my niece Laura was married. Her wonderful reception was at a vineyard here in Connecticut.
It was held outside under a tent, that was exquisitely decorated! The weather was perfect for the occasion. It felt like an early fall evening. Everything was beautiful, especially the bride!

Laura requested her Dad, my brother,Tony, to make flower boxes for the long tables at the reception. He was more than happy to help with the project and proceeded to have 18 of them built. Laura wanted them to have a drift wood look. My brother found a color wash on-line that would do the trick. They came out perfect! They were just what Laura wanted! She had the florist fill them with white Hydrangeas, pretty pastel colored Dahlias and white Tulips.10504947_711978222223404_6507281755419531302_o

After the reception, I was given the opportunity to take some home with me. I was very pleased indeed! I began to think of their decorating possibilities, especially for the up coming holidays!

I filled one of the flower boxes with more white Hydrangeas and Dahlias from the other. I then added pink Roses from my garden.

I thought to position three of my flameless candles in with the floral mix and place small glass cloches over them.

I love the look on my kitchen table! It’s a very pretty reminder of a wonderfully special occasion.

  1. Oh my goodness I love the boxes and the flowers! What a wonderful accent for the wedding. I love how it looks in your home and the cloche’s you added. That box will definitely be something to work with through the seasons and holidays. Sounds like the wedding was a wonderful experience. Our son’s wedding was under a giant white tent like this too- lots of beautiful memories!

  2. It’s perfect for a wedding and for your table! Pumpkins and gourds in the fall, holly and candles at Christmas…little pots of succulents for winter…the absolute perfect all season centerpiece! Thanks so much for sharing at Twirl and Take a Bow! ox

  3. Oh the flower box is gorgeous! I love it in your elegant dining room as well as in the wedding. I’m copying this fab idea!

    1. Thank you Fabby! The wedding was beautiful! These boxes on 18 long tables filled with flowers were spectacular! The candle light on the tables at night were breath taking as well. I redecorated the boxes again…see my next post!
      Have a lovely weekend!

  4. I absolutely love those boxes!! the wedding looks gorgeous!! I have been wanting to build a box like that, but I have never built anything out of wood- just needle and thread or paper!! You have done a beautiful job filling yours.

    1. Thanks Ann! If you know someone handy they can build it for you…it’s very easy! Just 18 of them would be time consuming! Thank you for the lovely comment. I’m posting another arrange today on it, stop by.
      Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment and for visiting yesterday! It’s a great unexpected twist to have a flower box on your kitchen or dining room table.
      Have a lovely weekend!

  6. How wonderful to have something made with love to share in such a pretty way, and something that one can enjoy time and again by varying the arrangements–so clever! Your dining room is so lovely. I want to add a personal note–it is so thoughtful of you to send a special little answer to our comments when your day is so busy, and it is appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Bobbi for commenting on my posts! It is very honoring to have followers and visitors take the time to post a comment. I feel it is only right that I show that your comment was read and appreciated! The flower box is very special and I’m glad to have it as a reminder of my niece’s special day. It does look wonderful on my table! I already changed it and posted on it, please stop by to see it!
      Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Hi Villrose! I think the contrast of the florals and the flower box are what makes the design work so well. Thanks for your comment and for visiting my post today! Also, thank you for hosting your party!
      Happy Sunday!

  7. What a delightful way to continue the beauty from the wedding – you’ve created a stunning centerpiece! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  8. How lovely this is. I just made a box for myself and I can’t begin to imagine making 18 of them! I love the way you have styled it…beautiful!

  9. Wow beautiful! Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream’s City of Links last Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again this week πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Suzan! I was very lucky to take it home. My brother had no trouble giving them away! The only thing was his daughter, my niece, Laura, wanted to keep some for herself. Now he has to get some back! Thank you for your lovely comment and for viewing my post!
      Happy Weekend!

    1. Thank you for your comment and for visiting my post. I started to changing the flower box for the fall and can’t wait to share it in a upcoming post soon! Thank you for hosting your party on Friday!
