We love the versatility of pumpkins and gourds in Autumn decorating. The wide array of wonderful shapes, colors and sizes is amazing - it seems every year there are new varieties. This year, let's kick it up a notch and use them on our tables as containers for flowers or candles. Here are a few ideas - easy to do and the results are beautiful!
Hollow out the pumpkin and insert a Mum plant - easy!
Tealight Candles inserted into hollowed out gourds.
Mini Pumpkins (Jack Be Littles) hollowed out, then taper candles and fresh greens added - so sweet!
Muted color pumpkin with fresh flowers and gourds. To keep the gourds in place, simple insert a toothpick in one end of the gourd, then insert it in the arrangement.
So simple and stunning!
These would look beautiful at each placesetting or grouped in the center of the table.
At the end of the evening, each of your guests can take one home.
