So MyHomeIdeas is pretty much my favorite new website. Recently I’ve been casually starting to decorate for the upcoming Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving season. I’ve been searching for that “special something” and I think I found it! MyHomeIdeas has a ton of unique and creative decorating ideas – these two below are my favorites. Make sure to visit their website to see all their genius ideas!
- Vintage copper pot
- 1 large block of florist foam, soaked
- Medium green or copper Cinderella pumpkin
- 2 bunches of sunflowers
- Bittersweet vines
The florist foam has a dual purpose in this centerpiece. Not only does it act as a watering agent for the sunflowers and bittersweet, but it also gives the Cinderella pumpkin height.
What To Do:
Place the pumpkin on the soaked florist foam, and then position the sunflowers around the perimeter. Use pinecones to fill in any holes, and add bittersweet to give the arrangement more height add color.
- Red enamel antique turkey roaster
- 2 medium blocks of florist foam, soaked
- Standing pepper berry branches (with leaves attached)
- Apples (Granny Smith, Lady, and McIntosh varieties)
- Florist picks
Fill the turkey roaster with enough soaked florist foam to cover the bottom of the pan.
Cover the florist foam with standing pepper berries. (This will establish the architecture of the arrangement.) Starting with the largest apples, use floral picks to slightly pierce the fruit. Secure the pick into the florist foam. Fill in any empty holes in the arrangement with the smaller apples.
