Small bright flowers can draw attention to the smallest spaces!!
I love the bright colors of Fall. My family is large and the center of the table is full. A centerpiece does not always have room! Small arrangements can decorate in a surprising way! Add candles to the table in matching bright Fall colors.
These are small arrangements I made for Thanksgiving Dinners. The design above became a dinner place card. I used red miniature carnations and orange alstromeria with Fall leaves and wheat. I worked the piece of wheat to hold the Thanksgiving enclosure card with the name of guest’s seat. A shot glass was used as a vase for this arrangement. The design to the left, is made in a cut glass toothpick holder. It is filled with red miniature carnations, yellow daisy pom-poms, and Fall leaves. These were both places at the left top of the dinner plate.
A symbol of abundance and nourishment used for decoration at Thanksgiving.
The cornucopia, horn of plenty, was a hallow goat’s horn used in the Roman and Greek mythology. It is a symbol of fertility, fortune, and abundance, especially at harvest. Earliest known use was in 1508. A goat’s horn was placed in the center of the table and overflowed with fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
Large baskets were woven in the shape of the goat’s horn and used in the fields for harvesting. Smaller baskets were woven to used as decorations on the table to celebrate the harvest. These baskets were filled with fruits, vegetables, and nuts. In modern times, flowers fill the cornucopia.
In this arrangement, I placed a liner filled with wet foam into the horn of plenty. I placed Spanish moss around the liner for concealment. I made the arrangements of roses, miniature carnations, and assorted pom-poms in the wet foam. I put pieces of fruit and grapes on wooden picks and added wheat. This design decorated the buffet table for a large Thanksgiving gathering.
Add witch decorations to a fall arrangement.
Creating a Halloween centerpiece is as simple as placing Halloween decorations in a fall arrangement. I make arrangements in a liner that can be placed in different containers.
In this centerpiece, felt Witch decorations are placed on wooden picks and added to the fall arrangement. Other decorations can be ghosts or skeletons placed on wooden picks or dowels, then cut to different heights. Treat the decoration as a focal point. Place the decoration is varying positions to accent the arrangement.
This arrangement is placed in the witch’s cauldron. After Halloween, the Halloween decorations can be removed and the arrangement placed in a Thanksgiving or Fall container to persevere with the season.
Calm Halloween anxiety with fresh flowers in bright colors!
Just because Halloween is full of death and dried bones, doesn’t mean that you can’t have some fun with flowers! In the scenescapes for Halloween, there are many articles that are old, dried, trashed, and covered with questionable materials. In an attempt to try to scare a person, some creators go overboard with substances.
Fresh flowers are overlooked as a decorating element for Halloween because they’re filled with happy aspects! Fresh flowers can add balance to the setting. Combat the aroma of decay with a variety of scents from an arrangement of fresh flowers. Be playful with the arrangements. Make the arrangements in whimsical containers. Use a large number of multiple, small arrangements.
Add fresh flowers to the next Halloween décor.
Remember flowers when decorating for a Halloween Party!
Decorating for a Halloween Party can be very colorful. Bright colors are offered in the Fall season. Many people think of black, white, and orange for Halloween. Bright colors of red, yellow, green are added to the orange in this arrangement. Many varieties of flowers in bold colors are available in the Fall season. Blooms available in the Fall can include: Golden Rod, Cattails, Yarrow. Mix these with bright colors of Gerbera Daisies, Carnations, and Chrysanthemums
This arrangement draws the eye because of the bold colors in a small area. The design is featured with miniature carnations, yellow cushion pom-poms, green button pom-poms, and orange altromeria. Miniature blooms are used because the container is a child’s sippy cup.
Decorating with flowers in the fall can be bright and cheerful.
