Reuse, Recycle and Rearrange Always make the best of what you have. Since I’m changing my Fall decor to a pastel palette I was pleasantly surprised at what I already owned. I separated out the softer blues & golds. I even used some of my Spring decor! Then I pretend I’m an interior designer and arrange & rearrange until satisfied. After I have things just right Its time to fill in the floral.
Flower Arranging is an art! My advice is to start with quality flowers & supplies, this will determine the final result. Luckily I found everything I needed at my top secret sample sale store. Sunflowers scream fall even in pastels. The galvanized canister I found gave it a rustic touch. Take a look!
Floral Focal point
- Choose vase & hot glue floral foam inside.
- Buy proportional flowers for your container. I used 4 large flowers and one sprig of spray.
- Make the bouquet before you trim. The stems will not be the same height.
- Press flowers into foam while arranging.
- Spread the leaves to fill in gaps.
Galvanized containers are very popular and since I had another from my spring decor I carried it over here.
Wooden tray side table decor
- Fill containers with holiday pumpkin mix or potpourri.
- Add single stems for a quick floral arrangement
- Add moss or stems around a votive candle
- Complete look with a few holiday decorations.
Bud vases offer the opportunity for more foliage & I like to sprinkle them into my tablescapes. This is simple and it completes my look.
Tiered coffee table decor
- Sprinkle in bud vases and add single stems
- Use a floral moss or stem to fill in around base of select items
- Include holiday decor in each grouping
- Candles are a great addition
- Add books for height
Accent table decor
- Take your pumpkins to new heights with candle holders.
- Group 3 candle holders together or replace one with a holiday accent.
- Pumpkin picks add interest in floral arrangements.
Now we need to add the finishing touches! See my next post on pumpkin paining & beading fabric pumpkins.
