Autumn: Pumpkin Bouquet

Autumnal flowers arranged in a hollowed-out pumpkin have been a popular trend the last few years in DIY seasonal decorating. Here is my attempt at the trend. I found the colors richly pleasing and the pumpkin vessel rustic. The simple mums - button mums and spider mums - are from two inexpensive supermarket bundles, so the cost was quite affordable. I used a plastic container with floral foam inside the pumpkin which helped the flowers stay fresh. The pumpkin vessel lasted about a week displayed on the dining table. I can understand why this trend is so popular as it provides so much seasonal beauty for low cost and low effort. Give it a try!
