Tropical Orange Table With Frangipani Blooms

Browsing in stores is one of my favorite past times. One of my local stores had beautiful tropical plates.  I bought saucers and then started dreaming of a tropical table for them.

 

 

 

 

 

I started with a burlap runner on my brown wooden table.  For a centerpiece, I took my green planter and added 2 candles and blooms from my frangipani tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added two orange plates with the tropical orange and blue saucers.  The first is a butterfly on tropical blooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second saucer is a colorful parrot in the jungle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the frangipani (plumeria) blooms and must enjoy them while I can.  In September the leaves will start to drop off, and by October the plant goes dormant for about 5 to 6 months.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the table with the bright colors, rustic burlap, and the tropical look of my planter with frangipani blooms.

    1. Thanks – the planter is filled with houseplants that most folks have. It is quite all right without a lot of sun which means flowering plants do not do well in it and die. They need light. I often add artificial flowers for the season to add color to the green. This time I took the frangipani blooms from my outside little tree and arranged them in the planter for the table centerpiece. It only lasts a day but it was worth it.

        1. I’m not familiar with the name plumbers – I just call my little tree frangipani or plumeria. Yes it can be grown as a houseplant but I never have. I live in central Florida and my frangipani is in the yard. I just brought in flowers to arrange in my green houseplants. The photos make it look like my greenery is blooming but no that isn’t true. Thanks for the visit!

          1. You can grow it as a houseplant as long as you have a place for it to sit w/o freezing in the winter while it is dormant. In the spring leaves will reappear and place in a sunny spot. When it is past frost, you can put it outside for the summer. They don’t grow as well as outside but some folks have grown them that way. My sister used to live in Milwaukee area and I had great fun visiting in the summer. Loved the Wisconsin Dells.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
