Thanksgiving is coming up at the end of the month and I wanted to share some floral inspiration with you. Just because Halloween is over doesn't mean we have to put away the pumpkins yet. As far as I am concerned decorative gourd season is still going strong.
1. First, carve the top of your pumpkin off and place a bowl or something waterproof inside. I used an old sour cream container and filled it with water. Then I took some clear tape and made an X over the top of the opening. This will help support the flowers so they don't sag or droop all over the place.
2. Next, add some filler to support the flowers and add some greenery. Normally I would use ferns but since I didn't have any I used cedar branches because I had a ton of those instead. Clip them and place them into the water like I did above.
4. Finally, try to add a variety of textures and heights. Fill in any empty spaces with leaves, greenery or more flowers. Rotate your arrangement and view it from all sides to make sure that it looks balanced.
