Creating a fall pumpkin arrangement without cutting, scooping or taping. Does that sound impossible? Well, I want to show you an easier way to make a simple fall arrangement without cutting or scooping through a thick pumpkin or gourd.
The idea is to create an arrangement you can place on your pumpkin and use as a centerpiece! I used a cream or pale yellow colored decorative pumpkin with a 5 inch stalk. Do not remove the stalk please 🙂 The stalk is the anchor for our arrangement.
Cut out a 4″ x 5″ floral foam. Make sure it’s soaked well in water. This is where you add your flowers and greenery. To give you an idea of how the arrangement sat on the pumpkin, I placed the foam on the stalk.
You can arrange cut flowers and greenery to your liking. I placed large flowers first, then filled the gap with cuttings from the shrubs. I recommend taking a step back from your arrangement ever so often to get the “full picture” of how you want your arrangement look.
The completed arrangement can be set on the table as a centerpiece . . .
. . . or you can place it on your pumpkin stalk!
Here is the completed arrangement. I added it to a High Tea table setting with a Royal Worcester Evesham Vale tea set.
The arrangement can also be used elsewhere! I added it to a pedestal in foyer. It added a beautiful splash of color and was highlighted by the height of the pedestal.
While shopping for fall decorations, I found these lovely velvet-jeweled colored pumpkins. I couldn’t resist picking them up! To add a flare to my indoor decorations, I placed the velvet pumpkins in a beaten silver platter.
I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I did. Please tag me in your arrangement! I’d love to see your masterpiece 🙂
