Pine Cone Love


I'm happy it's that time of year when pine cones fit the season and decor.
Actually, I have pine cones out all year long!

I checked out Pinterest for more pine cone inspiration, like this mantel which looks to be decorated for the holidays.

I found a few new ways to incorporate pine cones in to the decor.
Pine cones in pots, all tied up with twine. Love it!

Perfect for my kitchen windowsill.
Or, the December wedding that I'm "not blogging about!"

Bouquet idea?
I'm making the bouquet and centerpieces for the wedding, so right now my brain is full of ideas.

I was just saying that I need two large urns to flank the fireplace at the wedding venue.
Duh! I have the two pine cone urns in the entry that would be perfect.
Many have asked about them. I bought them about 3 years ago from Wisteria. Unfortunately, they are no longer available.
I like to keep them dressed for the seasons.
Here is Winter!

Spring!

Summer!

And fall!

Now I need to figure out what I'm putting in them for the wedding....
I'm leaning towards white hydrangeas and succulents.

I can see it now!

Pin It!

Delores, I absolutely love the hydrangeas with the succulents! What a great combo!! These would be absolutely gorgeous with the pinecone urns!

Love your ideas! It will be great! I love the idea of the hydrangeas and succulent combo for the pinecone urns it will look fab...perhaps some white amaryllis could be included (even if it's faux) ??

I love pine cones...so much in fact that is why I names my blog pine cones and acorns.

Those urns are spectacular, what a beautiful addition to the wedding venue. I cannot wait to see what you do with them?

I am in Mammoth, Ca and there are tons of pinecones that have dropped from the trees...I have filled a huge wooden bowl by the fireplace. I just put a pine cone wreath on the door. I love all your ideas!

Delores I can't believe it, my sister and I were talking for over an hour on the phone yesterday about pine cones, then I went to mom's house and found some huge digger (we think) pine cones and brought those home....wow perfect post, love it!!

I love pine cones and these are some great ideas of how to use and display them. Thanks for sharing.

Babs said...

LOVE Pinecones, too. I'm always picking them up in the yard and saving them for Fall and Winter use. I've always admired your pinecone urns. Pity the poor soul who had to make them. I made wreaths one year and that was enough for me. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful ideas.

The pinecones in the terracotta pots are so clever. They look like little trees. I have never seen anything like the pine cone urns - they are fantastic.
