Easy pumpkin centrepiece
Pumpkins are perfect for giving your home that autumn feel. Their colour and design is what makes them so desirable and there are several ways of creating this kind of centrepiece. Apart from the vase, you will need to choose the right flowers and foliage. It’s not only about the types of flowers but also their colour. Once you get the hang of it, though, you’ll see just how easy it is!
The first thing you need to decide is what kind of vase you want to use. If you can find a ceramic pumpkin with a hollow interior, you can use it as a vase. Even if it’s not completely waterproof, you can place a plastic tray inside with some floral foam. Alternatively, you could hollow out a fresh pumpkin and use it as a vase! Again, you might want to use floral foam to keep your flowers hydrated and in place. Plus, you can make a delicious pumpkin pie while you’re at it!
Once you have your vase, it’s time to choose flowers and foliage. The colours to focus on include orange, yellow, dark red, brown, and dark green. You don’t need to use all of these colours, but you can mix and match to create the desired effect.
Some of the best flowers that you can use include daisies, roses, dahlias, and chrysanthemums. Remember to look for flat flowers as well as those with a contrasting shape and texture. Now, take the look at the colour of the leaves along the stem of your roses and have your florist include foliage that has a similar colour.
Finally, don’t forget that you can also add berries, wheat, and even beads. Your accessories act as fillers which means that you will not need a lot – just enough to add some more texture and colour.
