A hollowed-out pumpkin makes the perfect vessel for a fall flower arrangement. With the ready availability of heirloom pumpkins and their rainbow of hues, you can have fun matching the flowers to the pumpkin color.

I think I’ll do a tutorial on creating an arrangement in a pumpkin, although you can probably already figure out how to do so. I made a cabbage vase once, but never a pumpkin vase.

If you don’t feel like you have a knack for arranging flowers, you can create a pretty vignette just by placing a pot of charming mums next to a pumpkin.

Speaking of mums, grab one from your garden center and wrap the plastic pot in burlap and secure in place with twine. It’s a super easy and inexpensive way to display them, both inside and out.

Did you grow sunflowers in your garden? They make excellent cut flowers and look beautiful all grouped together all on their own. Cut them in slightly varying lengths and tuck them into a pitcher. Just let them fall loosely for a casual look. If you didn’t grow them, you can usually find sunflowers this time of year at the grocery store.

I love this elegant fall flower arrangement. The seeded eucalyptus is always a great touch in any flower arrangement. I created something similar for spring that includes a flower arranging tutorial.

On the simpler side, gather a few dried flowers and grasses and place in a sleek vase. No need to water and the flowers will stay looking wonderful until the Christmas decorations come out.

You know, a fall arrangement doesn’t really need to include any flowers to be stunning. Branches or stems from the garden look great in a wild, messy kind of way. Give it a try – and remember – it doesn’t have to be perfect!

This weekend I want to get some roadside clippings of wild goldenrod and prairie grasses. We have so many in our area and I know they’ll look beautiful all bunched together!
