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.

  1. 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.

  2. No hydrangeas?? Isn’t that a cardinal sin in the world of blogging?

  3. Found this post on Mom2Mom Monday Link-Up! Love the tablescape! Your pictures are beautiful! I use mason jars for almost every party I throw!

      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!

  6. Such a gorgeous tablescape, love the galvanized touches with the hydrangeas….Just stunning!
