Pumpkin Floral Arrangement

| 6 Comments

As many of you know: I absolutely LOVE flowers! I actually own my own floral design business and I have a degree in Horticulture with an emphasis in Floral Design. Cool HUH!?! (at least I think so=) Only problem is I don’t get to do much with it, ’cause man do those kiddos sure keep me happily busy!

I have however, been able to do a few weddings and I was even able to do some arrangements for the Hotel Monaco which is located in downtown Salt Lake City. I made this arrangement for them a few years ago, and to this day it is still one of my very favorite:

Pumpkin Flower Arrangement

It is the most perfect of all imaginable perfect arrangements for Fall! And to make it even more fitting for Halloween all you have to do is add those plastic spiders and stretch some cobwebs between some of the flowers or twigs!

If you are floral savvy it is pretty easy. Just hollow out a pumpkin, put in a liner (I used a waterproof paper mache pot that you can pick up at your local florist-or you can use a big sheet of cellophane), fill it with wet floral foam, tape it in so it wont slide around, and then do your arrangement using fall flowers. Pretty fun to do and gorgeous to look at.

If your aren’t floral savy just purchase a pumpkin and head on over to your favorite florist and let them do all the hard work for you. Some florists even sell pumpkins and have similar arrangements in their coolers.

Oh, I need some flowers. sniff sniff =)

  1. Hi Anne,
    I love the pumpkin floral. I am getting married in the fall and had the idea of carving little pumpkins out and putting flowers in them. I thought I could google and see if there was anything like that out there, and lo and behold, I found your blog. Thanks!

  3. It seems your an expert on flowers Anne. A very nice color combination on that and very good design. I too were a fan of floral design currently ordering on Flowers on Cashmere in NZ.
