Invite the Witches . . .
When decorating for Halloween, invite the witches!!
Over the years our family has collected so many decorations for Halloween. Include the vintage decorations in the Halloween centerpiece. Here, I have used witches on brooms and used them as focal points. This arrangement is done in reverse to place the decorations last.
For this arrangement I used a cauldron as the container. Place a piece of floral foam to fit the container. Soak the foam until saturated. Place in the container and secure with the waterproof floral tape
The fall flowers I used were variegated orange/red miniature carnations, a packaged mixed bouquet, and salidego. I began the arrangements by placing the fall leaves around the edge of the container. Then, I added the salidego to the fall leaves.
Begin adding the miniature carnations to the arrangement by placing a tall stem to right of the center of the foam. Add more miniature carnations in a circular pattern around the bowl. Add the flowers from the mixed bouquet to the miniature carnations. I used the single spider mum at the top left of the tall miniature carnation. I then used the white alstrameria at the center right and lower left with the miniature carnations.
I attached one of the witches to a wood pick. Secure the witch to the pick with the attached wire. I placed the wood pick at the top of a plastic card holder used by florists. Secure the wood pick to the card holder with floral wrap tape. Place this with at the top center of the arrangement as the focal point. Attach a witch to another card holder and place to the right of the taller witch. Attach another witch to a wood pick. Complete the arrangement by placing this third witch of the left of the arrangement, lower than the witch on the right. Enjoy!!
