Let the Sunflowers Shine In – Fall Centerpiece
Sometimes, the simplest things give the most pleasure.
hearing my girls laughter,
a bowl of chocolate ice cream,
the smell of freshly cut grass,
the perfect sunflower,
70 years of knicks on an old cutting board,
a tarnished piece of silver,
and my family gathered around the table.

yup- love those simple things!
Now THAT makes me smile. 🙂
I am coveting your sunflowers.
is that a vintage ice bucket? great photos. 🙂
Nicely put! Couldn’t agree more.
this post made me smile! Beautiful flowers.
Beautiful! I love the simple things.
This post made me smile. Life is sweet 🙂
That is truly a centrepiece that brings on a smile! Such great values as well.
My gran used to say sunflowers soaked up the sun all summer to have it shine on our dinner table in the fall … love your arrangement (gran used a milk pitcher to hold her flowers) and your sweet sunny values. Robin
Beautiful! MUST FIND A SUNFLOWER FIELD, stat!
Love those simple things, too… and you know what? I grew sunflowers for the first time ever, they played nice and actually grew for me… and then the darling deer came along, stripped them of their leaves, and even ate one of the flowers! Deer are now officially off my list of simple things I love! 😐
Beautiful! Love sunflowers in any shape or form and combining them with the old cutting board and silver container really makes for a beautiful presentation!
Those sunflowers are absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful!
The simple things are the best things…love the arrangement in the silver container…have a wonderful evening enjoying the family around the table!!!…
I can’t stop staring at that cutting board! Gorgeous. The sunflower is beautiful too but the patina on that cutting board–man oh man!
Wonderful seasonal centerpiece. Love the sunflowers and pears on the cutting board!
Absolutely Kelly! Seeing, recognizing and appreciating the beauty in those things is key 🙂
Thanks for sharing this!!
Oh, how I love the smell of fresh cut grass. Love your vignette.
I only wish I had a toe ring to add a little bling to this arrangement 🙂
Have a great day rock star!
I love your vintage centerpiece, so simple but still attractive.
This is such a beautiful autumn centerpiece, Kelly–I love sunflowers, and I love the vintage items you used with them. The cutting board and tarnished silver is so pretty–lovely photographs!
Love this! The old cutting board adds the finishing touch!
Well said my friend! Just beautiful …
SO pretty! Yes, the simple things bring the most joy!
Gorgeous flowers, and what a great reminder. It’s the simple things in life…and so often we overlook them! I would be thrilled if you’d share this here:
I took a lovely deep breath while reading this post. So nice, and the perfect sunflowers bring me joy every time I look at them.
Sunflowers are my favorite! The colors and it’s resemblance to sun makes me happy!

Love the simple things! And P.S.–your photography is great. xoxo
I need to get to Trader Joe’s to get some sunflowers- they always have such good prices. I love the container you used to put yours in and how you placed on the old cutting board.
