Late Summer Kitchen Vignette

Happy Wednesday , sweet friends! I can’t believe that Labor Day is next Monday, and that the final weeks of summer are fast approaching. As for me, I don’t want to rush time, and I am savoring the final days of the season.

A recent trip to the grocery store inspired this late summer kitchen vignette. The store had roses on sale for $7 a dozen. That deal was too good to pass up! Even better, they had yellow roses. Their bright color just makes me happy!

Just a couple of items from nature can create a new look and pretty display. I simply shopped my house and gathered teacups, saucers, something to contain the apples, and a container for the flowers. I chose a tray to place my display upon. Trays are great for vignettes!

Adding a few green apples adds additional color and texture to the natural display.


Thank you so much for your visits and sweet comments! I hope that you all have a wonderful and blessed day, dear friends!!!

  1. Shannon, what a gorgeous late summer vignette. Blue and white always accents whatever color you use with it. The yellow roses are perfect along with the Granny Smith apples. Enjoy the last days of summer sweet friend and Happy Wednesday!

  2. Shannon, your vignette is lovely. I am such a lover of blue and white and I feel when you add yellow you have a little picture of heaven. I always think of the quote by Van Gogh – “there is no blue without yellow.” Or maybe it is no yellow without blue. Anyway, he was correct.

    Enjoy these last days of summer, sweet friend!
