Love these...

Red sunflowers - the colors are so beautifully vibrant and striking. They automatically put me in a good mood; especially when I come home from work and they are just sitting there, making my table look so beautiful, seemingly without any effort at all.

I decided to put my hat into the blogging event ring again for Centerpiece of the Month (originally from Talk of Tomatoes, but hosted this month by Whistlestop Cafe Cooking) using my beautiful flowers.

My lighting was not optimal for the below photos, but you can still see the insane depth of the color of the blooms. I paired them with some maples leaves I collected and the whole design just seemed to glow.

What a wonderful arrangement! Gorgeous display of all that is fall.

Those sunflowers are beautiful and the wood that they are in, is that a vase or really hollowed out wood?

The birch "vases" are actually hollowed out logs. I used bottles inside them to hold the flowers. I just changed them to hold a pile of acorns - they are great for fall and winter especially.

I bought them here, if you're interested: http://www.smallstump.com/product/new/new1.html

Thanks for checking out the blog!
