Find flower arrangement and table inspiration using sunflowers to transition for summer into fall.
While there are plenty of summer days left here in North Carolina,
I’m thinking and dreaming of fall, my favorite season!
Judging by what I’m seeing on my Pinterest feed, I’m not alone. ;)
Sunflowers convey warmth and symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity.
They have a cheery sun-like appearance with their open faces framed by yellow petals,
known as “rays”, and are the perfect flower for late summer and to transition into fall.
I’m sharing a little sunflower love today from the archives . . .

Always loved sunflowers as they are so easy to grow as well as so cheery in the garden. This morning the clouds and showers have returned, so your post was a “sunny” and welcome “good morning”! Thanks for sharing with us.
Just what I needed on this rainy morning…I love all the flower arrangements…they are always so beautiful. Your post…brought a huge smile to my face. I planted a bed of sunflowers twice and only got one lonely sunflower…but the squirrels in my yard said “Thanks for the treats!” Next year I will be putting netting down. 😀 Peace.
We see “fields od them” driving along our country roads…lots of happy birds this winter, etc!! franki
Love your site!! So glad I discovered it. I look forward to reading all the time!!
All so beautiful- would be impossible to pick a favorite!
Mary, sunflowers are my go to happy flower. I enjoyed reviewing all of your beautiful tables and arrangements. We planted a second crop this year but rabbits ate their new tender growth. Happy Monday 🌻🌻🌻
I adore sunflowers Mary, especially this time of year, they are a lovely way to transition into fall~ you have so many beautiful and incredible displays, such a happy sunflower round up of centerpieces, tables and vignettes!
Goooood Monday Morning! Beautiful! Thank you, Mary, for the beautiful inspiration!
Mary, All of the various tables are gorgeous! I love sunflowers! They’re a great transition into Fall. Happy Monday! Clara❤️
Thank you! Sunflowers make me smile!
This is just what I needed today! I like your informative history on the wonderful plants you create with. Your tables are stunning and I appreciate the info on where the different items can be found. Have a wonderful Sunflower Monday!
🌻🌻Love Sunflowers! Bright and cheery on their own or in an arrangement. Thanks for all the great Autumn tablescapes they lifted my spirits today. 🐝🌻🐝🌻
Swoon! What a beautiful way to welcome fall. The second photo in your post with the flowers running the table is spectacular, but my favorite is the copper basket with apples in the arrangement. I am ready to decorate for fall, but am showing restraint as my daughter asked that I wait for her until she returns from her vacation. It’s tough to be patient when you’re ready to unleash the fall magic in your home (especially after loading up on new items from the Mothership)!
Loved seeing all the photos again. SUNFLOWERS……..”hello, I love you “……. love sunflowers! The happy flower.
You made my Monday a Sunny Day!
Thank you for all the Sunflower inspiration!
What a cheery 🌻🌻🌻 post, Marry! I love each and everyone of them, but my favorite is the bees, sunflowers and hydrangeas. Thanks for the happy beauty!
Oops….didn’t mean to write Marry!
Each tablescape so unique and very pretty! Love the advice from a sunflower! Love fall, but not ready to say good-bye to summer. It just flew too fast!
I love this collection of sunflower posts!! Thank you for the inspiration!! So, so pretty!
So darn joyful, great way to start my day! Love all the bee accents too, so ready for fall cool weather, which most likely won’t hit until Christmas! Thanks for all the beauty you constantly share ❤
You are so talented! Absolutely love all the sunflowers. Fall is my favorite time of the year as well. The bee tablecloth is adorable; is there a link to that too? Thank you for your stunning photos I enjoy each and every single one of them!
Loved the profusion of flowers on each of the table settings and on the porch too! It was wonderful revisiting some of my favorites. Thanks for spreading happiness via sunflowers!
