Tablescapes, Playing with Sunflowers

I have been playing with sunflowers this week,

come on in and I’ll give you a peek

I wanted to decorate my Courtly Check tiered tray

I ordered sunflowers from Amazon that came the next day!

I got a variety of sizes and blooms

I wanted sunflowers to fill the whole room!

After I styled the tray,

a sunflower table was only minutes away!

I remembered I had an acrylic sunflower tray

that I placed near by to use but not get in the way

A sunflower basket hangs on the door,

it adds a late summer touch to the interior decor

Checked chargers, bright yellow plates and cute sunflower dishes

Sunflower napkins and rings fulfill all my sunflower wishes!

You might see some bees buzzing around

But don’t worry they’re not real

and they don’t make a sound

Thanks for stopping by to play with sunflowers with me

It won’t be long now until there are pumpkins to see!

  1. Beautiful! Sunflowers are so happy to behold.
    Amazing that this year with so little sun and so much rain, our sunflowers are immense and thriving!

    Good morning, Jenna. I love your 🌻 sunflower 🌻 party on this rainy day. Sunflowers are a happy flower that always makes me smile! I love everything about your table. The Courtly Check tiered tray loaded with 🌻 sunflowers 🌻 is a show stopper. Every sunflower detail is perfect. The square sunflower plates are so cute. I always love your creative poems that are so fun. It is hard to believe that we will soon be displaying pumpkins! Happy Thursday 🌻🌻🌻

    • Thank you Pam, sunflowers really make their surroundings cheerful! I always love seeing yours in your sunflower garden! They do play perfectly with Courtly Check 🙂 I can’t believe all the rain we’ve had this week!

  3. In one week, I drove past 3 different fields of sunflowers. They were beatuiful. I love your arrangements and entire table!

  4. Jenna, your sunflower display is lovely. I love the tiered stand all decked out with sunflowers. The square little sunflower plates are darling. A great combination with the checks. Sunflowers are a flower that makes everyone smile. You are so creative with your words.

    This is so cute! Sunflowers are the perfect transition flowers into fall! The tablescape is so well coordinated with the black and white and the contrasting yellow. Love it!

    Very pretty and seasonally appropriate, Jenna! I love your acrylic teay from your Society6 shop, and that first photo lighting really catches the eye!

  7. Mary says:

    Jenna, Love your cheery sunflower table and centerpiece! Black and white checks and sunflowers are a such a wonderful and happy combination, especially when you add some bees. 🐝🌻 Hope you’re staying cool, Happy Thursday ♥

    Another cheeky and entertaining poem Jenna – I always love seeing what darling table you’ve come up with too – those sunflowers are so fun! Is that acrylic tray one of your paintings? If so, can we buy it on Society6? Thanks for the sunflower inspiration and your ever-charming rhyming abilities!

    • Thanks so much Barbara, I adore sunflowers! Yes the tray is available in my Society 6 shop, there are links to many sunflower items in several different designs in my Fearless Friday post today

    I love both the sunflowers and your poetry. When I see something like sunflowers or irises that I really love so much, I have to wonder why I have such an instinctive attraction to them. On a different note, I’m assuming sunflowers were not available at Hobby Lobby so you turned to Amazon. I would never have thought of Amazon as a source for artificial flowers. Is there anything that is not available on Amazon? I received today some clear soft plastic corner protectors that are going to save my head at my cabin from a sharp cabinet corner.

  10. Nancy says:

    I love your sunflower-tiered tray! It makes your table happy. Then there are the bees which are quite adorable. I always enjoy your sweet poems. Thank you!

  11. Kim says:

    I love this Jenna – its so bright and happy and cheerful! How can you not smile when you see sunflowers? Love the MKC faux sunflower and tray filled with beautiful sunflowers. The napkin rings are so cute and I love all the painted bees flitting around. The black and white checked chargers are perfect for your square sunflower plates. Always enjoy the prose. Happy Thursday to you!

    Jenna, your sunflowers are gorgeous displayed on the MC Courtly checked tray. Your table is just beautiful with all the sunflower pretties and bees buzzing around. Happy Friday, sweet friend!

    Our household is down to three now that our 4th child just went to college, so I love how you created a table for two- that encourages me that I can create a tablescape-no matter how few.

  16. Joanne says:

    That is just beautiful! I love sunflowers and this table and your lovely centerpiece really made me smile.
