In A Vase On Monday ~ 'Great Expectations'


We've returned this afternoon to a soaked and still rain falling down on it garden, after a weekend away. It's too damp to stick my head out again so I thought that maybe Cathy would permit me some artistic liberty when it comes to this week's 'In A Vase On Monday'. We spent a day at the Malvern Autumn Show on Saturday which is always a great day out. This dainty tableaux entitled 'Miss Haversham's Wedding Breakfast' was an entry in one the floral art classes ~


This was obviously when the wedding breakfast was still fresh - not a single sign of cobweb. Looking forward to seeing the contents of other vases this week and with thanks as always to our hostess Cathy over at 'Rambling In The Garden'.

  1. The Chicago Flower and Garden Show always has something similar--a display they call "Tablescapes." It's always fun to see them, but I always wonder where can someone put all the food??:)

  2. Yes, you may have some artistic licence for IAVOM today Anna! What an intriguing display this entry makes - and what a large space they were allocated for it! I wonder what the theme of the class was? It looks as if ghey used a lot of dusky and silvery foliage

  3. It's a very pretty tableau, Anna. I love the gray foliage - it makes a particularly nice companion for the pink blooms. I've been watching Gardeners' World on YouTube of late (we have a very thin roster of garden shows on TV in the US these days) and I just viewed one on a spring show in Malvern, which I think must be the same place.

  4. Interesting entry, and strange in a way that everything was fresh as I thought the whole point was that the table had been left as it was for a lifetime.

  5. What a beautiful table - not much room for food, but who cares the setting is stunning.

  6. That's really beautiful. I thought maybe you had had a tea party when I saw the picture first! ;-)

  8. I think the senocio leaves are supposed to look like spiders' webs. How very creative; great fun.

  10. Thanks everyone for your comments. I'm sorry but I have had to give up trying to respond to them individually as Blogger is playing up again tonight A lot of thought, work and creative ability must have gone into the putting together of this display. I should have taken a note of the title of the class it was entered in but forgot to. It does look very fresh indeed but presumably it is meant to depict the table setting on the wedding day itself. Kris it is indeed the same Malvern as where the spring show you viewed comes from. Annie you must go - I'm sure that you would enjoy either show spring or autumn.

  11. You are welcome to call in next time you visit the area if you have time Anna. Both shows are extremely popular, although different.
