I still miss the hydrangea bush that grew in the backyard of our old house.
I’ve planted one at our new house, but I haven’t had the same luck in getting it to thrive and bloom like the one at our old place did. I guess the sun isn’t right.
But I’m still enjoying beautiful hydrangeas, long after the blooms have faded.
This summer, I snagged a few bunches of beautiful blue dried hydrangeas at the ultimate picker’s yard sale (Didn’t I tell you he had everything for sale?)
The vibrant colors of the dried hydrangeas inspired me to create this casual table setting. I think it still feels like fall, even though there are no pumpkins or traditional fall colors.
Just indigo — my new color crush — and aqua and white, paired with galvanized metal and natural elements like the wooden flatware and straw chargers.
I used my Lenox Chirp dishes, though they’re mostly hidden under the napkin, atop polka dot placemats from the Pottery Barn Outlet.
Since I can’t seem to set a table without using a mason jar, I decided to use a collection of them in this tablescape.
I gathered up a bunch of my blue mason jars and put them in this old canning rack I found at another yard sale.
This bottle carrier, another Pottery Barn Outlet find, holds a collection of refrigerator and freezer jars from the 1930s. They straight-sided jars make great vases for the dried hydrangeas.
When I went to the picker’s yard sale, I found lots of oversized mason jars. I used them for vases, too.
I’m of the mind that when you have a flower as beautiful and showy as a hydrangea, you don’t have to display it in a fancy vase. Just pull something out of the cupboard!
The table’s set. We just need a good food, good friends and good conversation to make it a picture perfect evening.

Amy I am a lover of table-scapes when I see one I like and I like yours, it is beautiful with the hydranges perfect for fall. I dont like the traditional oranges and burnt brown colors at fall, so this is perfect!!!
Thank you for sharing on Friday Features this week, appreciate your visit!!

Thanks so much, Karen. Traditional fall colors don’t really work with my color scheme, so I love finding other combinations that still evoke the mood of fall. But I love orange and red and yellow in the trees!
This is so pretty Amy! I love how it’s sweet, casual, bright & happy!
I would love to host arty at this tanle!

Atta Girl Amy
We are kindred souls. I use mason jars all the time! They’re just so darn versatile and pretty, in my opinion. I bet we could throw one heck of a mason jar party!
No hydrangeas?? Isn’t that a cardinal sin in the world of blogging?

Your hydrangeas are beautiful. I have one bush that I’ve been tempted to transplant because I think it may get too much sun but it gets wonderful blooms so I’m afraid to mess with it. Your table looks fantastic.
