It’s fall. Here’s a bright centerpiece made in a white ceramic pumpkin that will add some color to any festivity. This arrangement looks good from all sides, it is low, so it’s great for dinner conversations and looks beautiful from the top too. You just need 3 bunches of flowers to make it and some waterproof tape.

Floral Tip: Since this vase is very wide at the top, you can make a grid out of 1/2 inch clear waterproof tape to hold your flowers in place and keep them from falling out. Just make sure to wipe off the rim before you start, and after you have made the grid, take the tape all the way around the edge of the vase and it will securely hold everything in place. It’s easy.

Floral Tip: You will wire your Roses and Gerbers so their heads don’t droop. For instructions see: http://www.floristinyou.com/prep
