Thanksgiving is on the horizon, you guys. I don't know about you, but it's one of my favorite times of the year. I usually do the hosting, so I'm always on the lookout for super cute ideas for decor.
Pumpkin arrangements have been all. the. rage this year, so I thought I would take a swing at it. I decided to do things a little differently and use a fairytale pumpkin instead of the big bright orange ones. I found the perfect one that was still tall and round and big enough to set a vase in.
I love the idea of having this centerpiece in the middle of a Thanksgiving table with smaller pumpkins of all different colors, shapes and sizes all down the table. You could also just have it all on it's own for a showstopper effect! However you choose to style it, it's sure to make a statement.
Below you can find all the materials I used as well as a step-by-step guide!
- Large, round fairytale pumpkin
- Wide-mouth vase that will fit inside your pumpkin
- 3-4 of "statement" flowers. I chose some super pretty hydrangeas, some rust colored gerbers, and some white roses
- 2 bunches of greenery. Our store had some bouquets of mixed greenery that worked really well
- 2 bunches of dried flowers. I chose wheat and a really pretty pink flower.
- Scotch tape
- Sharp knife
Step 1: Cut the top off your pumpkin and scoop out all the insides. Make sure you cut the hole big enough for the vase you are putting inside!
Step 2: Fill the vase with water and place scotch tape in a grid patter on top of the vase. Place the vase inside the pumpkin.
Step 3: Starting with the greenery, place them through the tape on the vase. I always use the greenery to create whatever shape I'm wanting, so in this case, I put large stems of greenery on either side. Then I put some smaller ones on the inside. This created a really open and organic look.
Step 4: Next, I added the hydrangeas and the other statement flowers. I made sure they were all evenly distributed throughout the bouquet.
Step 5: As the finishing touches, I added some more sprigs of greenery to fill in the gaps and then the small dried florals. VOILA! You have a stunning pumpkin centerpiece!
